Process of a mixing or mastering project:
Artist/label sends demo or premastered track to me.
I analyze the track(s). After checking the track’s premaster mixing and export quality I make an estimation on what has to be done.
The mastering price is based on the work that has to be done on submitted tracks, the amount of tracks (single, EP or Album with 8-10 tracks) and the time how fast the mastered results have to be delivered by me.
I do NOT charge by hour, only by final result of mastered tracks, ep, album.
I have a quick turnaround of maximum 36 hours from delivery of demo/premaster to final result.
I offer 2 revisions after delivery of mastering demos so artist can take influence on the process.
