PREMIUM AUDIO MASTERING
Stereo mastering is achieved with just one audio file. I will enhance your song to give you the optimum balance and loudness. If you are happy with your mix and want that amazing final touch to give your track clarity and punch then a stereo master will be perfect for you.
I will make sure that your track is ready for the distribution platforms that you are using and sound great on all speakers.
Mastering for iTunes
Mastered for iTunes is both a mastering process and a distribution format. This premium format allows artists to publish their music in higher fidelity (lower distortion and noise). The Mastered for iTunes process ensures that artists and consumers receive the most benefit from this delivery format. I am a certified Apple Digital Masters provider. This file is made specifically for iTunes upload and meets its standards.
If you're looking for a dramatic sonic enhancement, then stem mastering is for you. With stem mastering, you'll send me groups of audio tracks from the project. This gives me greater control over the final sound and allows me fine tune the main elements of your mix to perfection.
HOW IT WORKS
It all starts by requesting a quote. Here, I'll decide if your track is suited for the stereo mastering or sterm mastering service and give you a quote. If you decide to go with my offer, you'll receive a link to upload your files.
