Too Close to a Particular Project...

I have been casually working on an instrumental solo project for years: largely recorded on ADAT and mixed to 1/4". I am a primarily a mastering engineer but feel like I am no longer objective about this project and need an extra set of ears. It is not a serious project and the cost of sending it out for mastering would never be recouped through potential sales, so I'd still like to master it myself with some input.

Please PM me if you are willing to help, thank you.

Just a suggestion but why not find another mastering engineer in the same boat as you and offer to master each others tracks.

That way neither of you pays anything + you get the benefit of being the "impartial set of ears"

That's a good idea and I'll certainly be glad to do it.

BTW, I'm not looking for a free mastering job, just somebody willing to listen to a few excerpts and give their opinion to see if his/her conclusions are the same as mine.

Were I to look for somebody to do the mastering, they would need to be able to do it from tape as it is a 40-minute album on 2x 1/4" IEC tapes (side-1, side-2) already assembled with leader between "cuts". I always had it in the back of my mind that I would do a limited run of cassettes with it. :p
