I have mastered for some excellent and great artist and I beg you to try and find a more competitive quote with the quality I bring to the table.
I as a producer have been mastering since I learned to play the keys (and thats pretty young). Mastering takes skill, patients/time, and a very good ear. It also takes silence. My studio is equipped with the latest modern technology when it comes digital mastering.
I know the right pitch, frequency, and EQ levels to perfect your track into something even Gateway Mastering, Abbey Road, Metropolis, or even Mozart would be proud of.
Mastering requires critical listening; however, software tools exist to facilitate the process. Mastering is a crucial gateway between production and consumption and, as such, it involves technical knowledge as well as specific aesthetics. Results still depend upon the accuracy of speaker monitors and the listening environment. Mastering engineers may also need to apply corrective equalization and dynamic compression in order to optimize sound translation on all playback systems. It is standard practice to make a copy of a master recording, known as a safety copy, in case the master is lost, damaged or stolen.
