Maselec MTC-1X

Mastering: $60 Per Song

This includes:

  • Mastering of songs up to 10 minutes in length.*
  • Unlimited revisions without additional billing.**
  • Downloadable versions of your masters as uncompressed Wave files.
  • Indefinite secure archival of your project.

*Songs longer than 10 minutes are billed at $8 per minute.
**Important Note: Revised mixes that require new mastering settings are billed as a new song. Modified mixes that use the same settings are billed the “alternate version” price.

Stem Mastering: $120 PER HOUR

Stem mastering is billed at an hourly rate to compensate for the additional setup and working time of these projects. Most songs take about 45 minutes to master.

Alternate Versions: $20 PER SONG

This covers any songs you need mastered that we can process using settings from a previous version such as modified mix downs, 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. These can be prepared at any point after the first mastering session.

Interludes: $10 Per 30 SECONDS

If you have short interludes of 1.5 minutes or less, these can billed per minute as to avoid the full price of mastering a song. Billed in 30 second increments.


AudibleOddities is an Apple approved supplier of MFiT masters. These can be prepared separately for a nominal cost, at any point after the mastering session. Delivered as 24bit Wave files.

SoundCloud uses a very unforgiving compression algorithm that can create lots of apparent distortion during playback.

DDP & CD-R Masters: $50

If you plan to release your music on CD, you’ll need a properly assembled and error-checked DDP file set, or Redbook CD-R for the replication facility.
