Western Mastering on SoundBetter

Mastering is most of what I'll do, but I also mix. Almost entirely for remote clients, all over the world. My website below has more information and more examples of work.

DDP 2.0 available. CD Text. Noise reduction / removal. Vocal tuning & comping. Additional production. Keyboards and synthesizer, playing and programming. More examples at http://www.markdownie.com.

Mastering. Take off final FX added for loudness. Export .wav or .aiff, at bits (24 / 16) & sample rate you mixed it at (44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 kbps). Don't use dither, or up-sample to a higher sample rate.

For Mixing, I price per track, not per song / hour. It's designed to help small projects (singer songwriters, Americana) plus those with sensible track counts. Go ahead - send a ton of tracks, you'll pay more for it.

I accept Pro Tools project files, put them in a ZIP, upload to a free service, like We Transfer or Drop Box. Then send me a link. I can accept Sonar Bundle files or an OMF, every major DAW now exports in OMF.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    Amazing. Highly recommend this guy, he was very patient and delivered exactly what I wanted the first time. Also went out of his way to educate myself and my producers how to probably mix a beat so the master could be 1000 times better. Overall a good guy and a even better mastering engineer. Highly recommend!
