How long does it normally take to get my music back?
Typically, I can get mastered files back to you in 2-3 days. I know sometimes things need to turnaround quickly, and I'll always try to accommodate, so just let me know….
What format should my files be in to go to mastering?
I prefer to receive stereo files that are 24 bit with a sample rate of 44.1k or (preferably) higher. Please remove any peak limiters or processing that just adds volume (L2/L2007/Ozone/Maximizer/etc.) from the mix bus before printing the final mix, and then make sure it's not clipping without them..
What equipment do you use?
I monitor on Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus 802s running on custom Atomic Instruments’ Hypex Amps. I use gear made by Dangerous Music, Hendy Amps, Knif Audio, Buzz Audio, and a bunch of other things when it’s called for. Gear is really important to me, but not something you should worry too much about.
We'll touch base before sending files to confirm rates/availability. When I load everything up, I'll send an invoice via Quickbooks, and you can pay for mastering services with a credit card, bank transfer, or Apple Pay. Other payment options like Venmo and Square Cash are also available. Once I receive payment and complete the work, I'll email you a link with instructions to download your files.
