AI Machines Can’t Do This...
Mastering is the final process used before a song is released to the public. This is where song levels are balanced across the album, the frequency spectrums receive any helpful finishing touches, and any other problems with the mix are ironed-out. Professional mastering services an important part of your music career, whether you’re just starting out or you’re already a superstar. Without quality mastering services you can set yourself up to look unprofessional, loose a listeners attention, and compromise the integrity of your music. Remember, your songs will be competing with thousands of professional tracks already being released daily to Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and SoundCloud.
You can choose whether you want to take the chance of letting an machine finish your music and it not sounding like it should, or whether you want to trust a human to help you sound the best. You’ve invested your time and money up to this point, selecting the perfect music, writing and recording your lyrics, and balancing both of those through mixing, so think closely about how you’ll finish the project. I accept all genres so get your songs ready and I’ll take your music to the next level or you don’t pay a dime!
***Files should be in the highest resolution available (WAV or AIF format), free from pre-mastering processing, and the highest peak-level of each song should be -4dB or less***
