The goal at hfMASTERING is not only to make your music louder, but to add clarity, excitement and to allow it to translate well on all means of playback - making it sound the best it can possibly be in order to compete in today's competitive market.
I offer very affordable rates starting at $25 (depending on complexity of the song). The more tracks you send for mastering, the better the rates are!
Every song is different and must be treated accordingly.
I believe every element of your song(s) is as important as each other, however big or small its role is. I will look for areas I believe need more attention in order for the listener to get the best possible listening experience.
I would love to hear your music and I am more than happy to discuss with you what you wish to achieve at the end.
I will provide free advice on how to address areas for improvement that may require further pre-work in the mixing stage in order to reach the best possible result.
If after mastering you're not entirely satisfied with the results, I am more than happy to revise the work carried out at no extra charge.
I look forward to working with you, wherever you are in the world!

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: For best results, make sure to provide the following when sending your mix for mastering. • WAV or AIFF format - not MP3 • 24 bit or higher • 44.1k sample rate or higher • Mono compatibility - when switched to mono, do some elements disappear? • No clipping - keep peaks between -6 to -3 dB • One bar gap at the beginning and end of your track - so the song doesn't start the moment you hit play and to avoid an unfortunate abrupt ending.

A: I've worked on various genres, there isn't a specific one I usually work on.
