Silver - our intermediate level service is also fixed price per track and allows for additional dialogue between the artist and the mastering engineer with the creation of up to 3 mastered versions of each track. As each version is created the artist provides feedback to the mastering engineer who will incorporate the required changes in the next version. We do this all by email and file transfer for upto 3 versions per track.

Bronze - this is our entry level mastering service. It is designed to provide a cost effective way for artists to have a mastering engineer apply tangible improvements to the final stereo mix and prepare for CD or digital distribution. We use the same mastering engineer, the same professional mastering tools but we keep the cost down by providing a 'one shot' service - you email the tracks, we master and return them to you for a fixed price per track.

£20 per track.
