We Now Offer Digital Mastering

Digital Mastering Has Arrived

We've been offering it on a limited basis to our customers and newsletter subscribers but we're proud to announce digital mastering as a new service at BandsOnABudget.com. Read below for info about our new service.

Once your recording and mixing is finished, there's one more important step before sending it over for CD pressing: mastering. This process is imperative in giving your record a professional sound; consider it the finishing touches on your masterpiece. Your songs will be compressed to make sure they're at a standard CD volume and EQed to make the mix sound bright and full. Details are important, so we'll have your track transitions and any other special requests taken care of to make sure the final result sounds exactly how you imagined. The quick turnaround and affordable prices can't be beat, so don't leave out this aspect of the recording process!

Standard turnaround time in most cases is within 48 hours of receiving files. One of your mastered tracks will be sent as a sample within 24 hours, so you'll have input on the overall sound and EQ. To submit your tracks for mastering, CDs can be sent via mail or uploaded online. Tracks should be sent as WAV or AIFF files, stereo interleaved at a minimum of 16-bit, 44.1KHz. In addition to being able to access the tracks immediately online once the process is completed, a master CD will be shipped to you too. We also master vinyl releases!

To place an order or to receive a custom quote please call us toll free at 1 866-471-3868 or fill out our contact form.
