"I finally got a label to release my stuff, and they are going to do all the mastering in-house for me now."
I check their label page, and they are doing it all in the box with KRK Rockits and a Mackie desk. I check some audio clips of some of their releases, and they are all crushed smiley curve. I keep my fingers crossed that the client will notice and come back to me one day. Not funny at all, and seems to be happening a lot more these days. :(
I recorded the first 5 songs in a professional studio and the other 7 in my buddy's garage... I want this record to sound consistent from beginning to end. By the way I only have about $200 to get this thing mastered we can do all of this a few hours can't we....
I can't attend the session and I don't have email, so when it is done can you mail me a disc and if I like it I'll mail you a check.
One of our engineers greeted the client, warmly shook his hand....went up to the room, sat him down, asked if he wanted coffee...
the guy said, "yes please...i've had a rotten journey, the abscess in my mouth burst on the train and I had to spit it out all into my hand...."
Can you do stem mastering after the song is already mixed down? Our lead singer quit the band and we want to put someone else in singing his parts. If you can't do stems can you just take out the lead singer?
I pre-mastered this for you so now you can do the real mastering in less time and not charge us as much.
We recorded some of these tracks in my house but they were not so good so we went to a studio and recorded the rest of the tracks but now we want you to make our home recorded tracks the same as the ones that we recorded at the studio. That shouldn't be too hard should it?
Our drummer was having problems with his playing but we liked the vibe so now we want you to "pro tool" the beats and make them sound good and in time. Of course we mixed it all down so it would be easier for you do work on.
I know there is a lot of distortion on the mix-down and we liked it at the time but now after hearing it a bit and talking to our friends we want you to take out the distortion. Is this going to cost a lot?
The tracks were all done in an abandoned silo on my Dad's farm but there is too much echo so can you just take out the echo and leave the music?
My guitar player wants his part made a lot louder but we did not pay for the ADAT tapes and they got erased by the studio so we don't have the master tapes anymore and can't do a remix. Is this going to be hard to do?
I did all the recording in my kitchen on my 4 track cassette recorder. It is me playing pots and pans and a toy piano. I recorded it with a Radio Shack microphone I bought at the second hand store for a dollar and it sounds GREAT to me but I think it needs some mastering to make it sound even better.
I have these tracks that I want to get mastered. They are on some DAT tapes and I no longer have a DAT machine so can we listen to all of these (9 tapes) and find where the songs I want to master are and can you do this for free since I don't have any money.
I was in a band and we did a recording. I have the master mix-down but since I don't have permission from the band members to use the tape can you take them all out and just leave me so I can use it as a demo?
I know you are really really good but I have a problem. The tape recorder we used for the mix down was having some speed problems and at the end the recorder speeds up (actually it slowed down but speeds up when played back normally) so I was wondering if there was someway to make the tape speed normal? I am willing to pay you for your time as long as it doesn't take over an hour.
My friends and I recorded and video taped this really great song but we have some noise in the background that needs to get taken out before we can put this up on You Tube so can you take out the noise and leave the music (The "noise" was a building being torn down two houses away)
My master CD got cracked when it fell out of the car and I stepped on it can you make it play back normally and then can you master the tunes? I would really like to get this done soon and I really don't have a lot of money. I tried playing the disk back on my stereo system but it would not play and I think the cracked CD messed up my CD player. The guy who did the mix-downs says his computer crashed and this is the only copy of the mix-down. Thanks in advance.
Can you do this mastering for some beer and maybe a pizza?
I have a lot of tunes I want to get mastered. The master tape was done in Europe and they said I may have problems getting it to play here in the states. Also the tape got wet but we put it into my oven and baked it so it should be OK shouldn't it?
My dog urinated on my master tape and I did not know what to do so I put it in the dishwasher and turned it on. Now the tape won't play what should I do? I need to get this mastered but I only have this one tape and the recording studio is no longer in business. Buy the way this tape is 20 years old.
