Mastering

I do offer mastering, but I suggest to outsource mastering to get another set of ears on it. There are exceptions where it is a live recording session and you are already pleased with the sound. In which case I can do the mastering to clean things up. Email for pricing on mastering, please.

For a 3 song demo, the price is $500.This does not include travel expenses or venue. Recording space is left up to the quartet to find. A room that is somewhat isolated from outside noises can be used. If a house setting is used, the residents of the home must leave for the duration of the recording session. If pets are in the home, they must be controlled in some safe form.
