  1. Yes you are correct, mastering rates won't change because of how many tracks were up in the mixing stage and it would certainly not be more expensive because it has vocals. Thanks for pointing it out, I will edit that section to avoid any misunderstanding. Mixing is the best man! I love recording and mastering too but the mixing stage gets the most fun by far. In this case is tricky beacuse in order to offer the lowest rate possible to help out anyone financing him/herself, rates will most likely be different for each project. For example, let's suppose your mix had problems and I knew addressing them would take me exxxtra time, then maybe I would have said 35euros. Most mastering studios have a flat rate, because they set it at a very safe average.
  2. Hey Warrior, mastering only, tricky question to answer publicly, but after listening to your demo and as long as the songs are released independently, we are talking about 25euro per track range. How friendly is that? I will send back: - WAV 44.1kHz 16bit (CD) - WAV 44.1kHz 16bit and 24bit (Streaming, MFiT) - High quality Mp3 (Sonnox) And if you are curious, I can mix and master that song you shared, for about 125Euro. /,,/
  3. I feel you bro. I would consider going down the session vocalist road. Not cheap though.
  4. Salutations! I'm looking forward to working with independent or new bands, unsigned projects, collaboration/tribute songs, EP or albums, etc. Pro and unbelievable low, friendly rates. Interested? Read on! ***Unsigned projects only*** Pick your poison: ------------------- 1. Mixing and Mastering Send over your raw unprocessed tracks, let me know your vision or send a reference of what kind of sound are you looking for your song, ep or album. Examples: -Incorrect: hey man, can you mix these tracks? I don't really know what I'm looking for, just do it and I'll let you know if I like it or if I'd like you to try something different again and again. -Correct: I want it to sound something like Metallica's "The god that failed" from the black album or I shall be very disappointed and I won't pay you. And if you disappoint me you'll rot in hell, poser. Pro tip: If you manage to record a DI signal (guitar or/and bass), I will reamp them using top tier amps in the studio at no extra cost. 2. Are you a solo artist or the band doesn't have a final line up yet? I can help out recording guitars, bass and background keyboards for your song. 3. Want to have an orchestra supporting your song? I will write and record a professional orchestration for your song (virtual instruments).
