I want the best sounding mix. Stereo mixdowns in 24 bit (minimum) resolution. Bus processing is fine as long as it sounds better or holds the mix together.
Things to consider:
Listening. A great mix tells what should be done to make it sound better.
Then comes processing. After that I'll send the masters in hi-res (24 bit) to evaluate on your familiar sound system.
Masters optimized for streaming are included.
Stem mastering is possible. However, a great and balanced mix is usually the best way to go. Stem mastering requires extra work and therefore costs more than normal mastering.
Short answer: no. I'll make one master that suits all.
Please be aware of maximum playback length when choosing your tracks for both sides of the vinyl. Optimum playback length for a 12" 33 rpm record is 18 - 21 mins.
The disk cutter at the vinyl plant is the one making final judgements when transferring digital files to vinyl.
For CD I'll provide you a playable DDP-image, including ISRC codes.
It's possible to attend the session. I encourage you to witness the process: in price there is no difference between an attended or unattended mastering session. (max. 2 pax.)
In case you're not entirely happy with your master I will do a revision, until you're completely happy.
I've made a Spotify playlist containing mastered work:
Yes. The better the mix the better the end result. The benefit of a fresh pair of ears will most likely improve your mix!
ISRC is an international code that facilitates the distribution of music rights. The code is unique per song.
The code is embedded during mastering when releasing music on CD. For a digital release the code is filled in while uploading your tracks.
An ISRC can be obtained free of charge. In Holland Sena issues the codes.
