How can I help you make your music sound better?!

Stereo Mastering

I will master your stereo file to perfection. You mix your music and make sure the version you send me is an uncompressed stereo file. This gives me much better control over loudness and frequency balance.

Stem Mastering

You did a great job on your mix, but to give me more freedom over loudness and frequency balance, you group your tracks into 'stems' so I can mix these for you. You send me a group of premixed tracks.

Mixing

When you have heard your song hundreds of times you become 'deaf' to the final product. Fresh ears can be very useful to finalize your baby to perfection. You send me all the separate audio tracks.
