Lets Get Started
You must supply a mixed down, stereo master in one of the formats below. We recommend a hi-resolution format such as WAV or AIFF files at 24-bit/44.1K or higher sampling rates can be submitted in order to achieve the best results from the mastering process. *Compressed file formats such as MP3, AAC, or WMA files are not acceptable as a source for mastering. *It is recommended that processes such as compression, limiting, maximizing, etc. not be applied on the stereo buss during mix down. A master that arrives already compressed and or limited greatly reduces the ability to deliver the best sounding master possible. Masters with excessive level, clipping or audible distortion may also prevent us from mastering your project to its fullest potential. Leaving 3 - 4 dbs of headroom during mix down is a good rule to follow to avoid clipping and distortion on your master. We can accept your master on one of the following formats: • Audio CD •Data Files (wav, aiff) on CD-R, DVD-R, flash drive, or via upload • Mini DiskPricing
