CD Mastering can add that final dimension to your song or album that helps hit it out of the ballpark, make it radio-ready, and really grab a listener's attention ... but only if done correctly.
The most important piece of equipment in any CD mastering house is your mastering engineer's ears! I have personally seen music projects go into other studios and come out sounding smaller and less impactful than when they went in. My ears are among the best in the business and I guarantee you that any music project or cd that I master will be the best that it can be and will meet or exceed your expectations.
The rate for audio mastering is $50 per hour if you choose to come in-person and be here while your music is mastered, or $50 per song if you choose to digitally upload your music to me via the internet (or send a cd/dvd by mail) and have your songs mastered and sent back to you either by internet or mail.
Mastering an entire cd (10 - 14 songs) usually takes from 5 to 8 hours.
The big variable in the time it takes for cd mastering is the condition of your music that you bring in. If your cd is well recorded and mixed, cd mastering will go more quickly than for songs where there may be something lacking in the original audio files.
Please feel free to email me or call if you have any questions regarding the mastering process, or schedule a free in-person consultation at the studio. I will give you a complete detailed appraisal of your project and what you can expect from mastering your songs before we start and before you spend a dime.
