Package 'B' - Standard 32-bit Mastering ($125 Flat Rate)

*This is not an hourly charge - it is a flat rate. Your project can be up to 74-minutes long. If you have a 75 to 80-minute program, the cost would be $150.

Standard 32-bit Mastering includes the following:

  • "100% Listening Stage" to check your source for problems (i.e. glitches, static, pops, tics, dropouts, noises, correct song sequence, etc.) and notify you of any potential problems.
  • Fully Mastered CD with track sheet (or Mastered WAVs) - including peak limiting and normalizing for each song, noise removal between songs, fixing of gaps, start/end cleanup, fades, song to song leveling, count-off removal & re-sequencing of songs.
  • Fully Mastered CD as Package 'A' (plus compression for each song) and mastered in 32-Bit Float Mode (see below). EQing is NOT included in Package 'B'. If your project needs EQing, you must choose either our 'C' or 'D' packages. 

32-Bit Float High Resolution Audio System

Benefits:

For the Audiophile - an alternative to 16-Bit processing

1. Floating Point Signal Processing offers a huge range of values which present no limitations in dynamics or headroom. This process will give your music an increase in perceived Dynamic Range. In other words, if you want a "loud" CD or audio file(s), this is the way to get it!

2. It’s impossible to distort the signal through editing or processing (EQing, Compression, Normalizing, etc.) due to the extra "bits" available.

3. 32-Bit precision is maintained completely independent from the volume level. Whether you work with a -80dB signal level or with a +40dB signal! [Aliasing can occur on 16-Bit systems at low volume levels when all the "bits" aren’t being used].

Mastering Extras

These extras are easy to add to your mastering order and give you some really great additional options.

  • Backup CD Master ($15) - You'll get one disc with your mastering order already, but it's a good idea to have a backup CD Master - especially if you're sending the CD we send you out somewhere for manufacturing. A Track Sheet is included for every Backup CD Master we make.
  • Download Individual WAV files for each song after mastering ($25 flat rate) - Want us to just master your songs and deliver final WAV files to you so you can create "masters" as you need to? This is the way to do it. Download the finished WAV files right from your private link. You'll still get an actual physical disc from us as well after we finish mastering your project, but you'll have your WAVs without the wait. Price is a flat rate for ONE CD - doesn't matter how many WAV files we'll be making for you (up to 80-minutes worth). So, you ask - "Why is this an extra charge?" Because, WAV files are not automatically generated upon completion of mastering your CD. We have to go back and create those individually and that takes extra time, hence the extra charge.
  • DVD-ROM Stuffed With Goodies! ($25) - A DVD-ROM (or CD-ROM - depending on file sizes) with everything you need. Individual files for each song in various formats so you can do-with-them-what-you-want and not have to hassle with making them yourself. Burn discs, put 'em up on your website and offer high and low quality streams, put them on your MP3 player, phone, etc. Formats include: WAV (CD Quality), MP3 (three different  qualities), WMA (high and low quality), REAL AUDIO (high and low quality) and FLAC.
  • CD TEXT coding for your CD ($10) - For a flat rate of $10 for the entire CD, we'll add CD TEXT to your Audio CD so (in compatible players) your song titles, disc title and artist name shows up on the CD player's display. [Note: CD TEXT is not the same as ID3 tag information encoded into MP3 files or simple file names that programs such as Windows Media Player reads.] CD TEXT will only display on players with the CD TEXT logo. We can also submit your CD's information to the Gracenote/CDDB database so your disc information will show up when playing your CD in iTunes, Winamp, etc. This is included in the cost of adding CD Text to your CD ($10), but only done by request from you. We are a Gracenote Content Partner.
  • I Need NEXT DAY MASTERING for my CD! ($50 extra) - (Contact Us to make sure this service is available for your project)
  • I Need SAME DAY MASTERING for my CD! ($100 extra) - (Contact Us to make sure this service is available for your project)

Customer Comments

  • I have to thank you soooo much for the beautiful job you did with this (their 5-song CD). I wasn't even hoping for such a great sound, considering the quality of the DAT tape we sent to you. This was the last project we had to finish up with our "dying" old ADAT equipment. We knew we were working under those handicaps, but the songs are timely, and personal to us. We really wanted to release them anyway. You've enhanced the quality of our CD in a huge way! It is so appreciated.

    -Dolores P., Brockton, MA

  • Hey Doug, we have received all the 6 boxes of albums (Replicated CDs). They look wonderful and sound amazing. I want to personally thank you for all of your time and effort on this album process from start to finish (Mixing & Mastering both). We are so thankful that we found such a great production company such as yours as well as hooking us up with your plant to get the CDs made in such a timely fashion. We look forward to doing our next album with you and having another great success like this one. Thank you so much.

    -Pat M./Scott M., Cicero, NY

  • Doug, hey man... you are the hero of the hour! Sounds great! Thanks!

    -John S., Nashville, TN

  • Hi Doug, What can I say? This is completely AWESOME!!! The project sounds professional, and that is what I was aiming for, a professional project that could reproduced over and over. I am MORE than satisfied with your expertise during the entire phase of this project. I look forward to receiving the master CD so that we can start replication. Thanks Again!!!
