As singles require more mastering time than songs of an album or EP, the cost is slightly higher.
Albums and EP’s: $50 PER SONG
Both these rates include:
- Mastering of songs up to 10 minutes in length*
- Unlimited revisions without additional billing!**
- Downloadable versions of your masters in Wave format.
- Indefinite secure archival of your project.
*Songs longer than 10 minutes are billed at $5 per minute.
**Important Note: Revised mixes that require new mastering settings are billed as a new song.
Alternate Versions: $20 PER SONG
This covers any songs you need mastered that we can process using identical settings from a previous version such as instrumentals, extended club mixes, radio edits, clean or dirty versions, and vinyl specific masters of a digital release. If you’re having two sets of masters made, for example, one louder set for Internet and another more dynamic set for vinyl, the additional set is billed at these rates.
Interludes & Short Songs: $15 Per Minute
If you have some very short interludes, skits, intro’s, or outro’s of 2 minutes or less, these can billed per minute as to avoid the full price of mastering a full length song.
CD-R Master or DDP filesets: $50
If you plan on releasing your music on CD, you’ll need a properly sequenced, burned, and error-checked CD-R or DDP file set for the replication facility.
Includes 2 master discs and regular shipping and/or a DDP file set delivered online. You can order these at any point after the mastering session.
Stem Mastering: $120 Per Hour
