Mastering Recordings

Mastering = $100 per song or track

We master your audio recordings. Our high fidelity digital mastering will make your music ready for distribution and radio play. We work with our clients to help achieve the sound they are looking for. This process enhances the overall sound and brings the track up to an industry standard volume level. We have cleaned up alot of bad recordings through this process. There is a saying that holds true in this industry, "Garbage in - garbage out." If you are not happy with the mix of your project, it would be ideal to revisit that process because mastering will only further enhance the final mixdown. There is no magic here, only artistically impressed science. If you have access to the multitracked sessions of your project, you may want to consider having it mixed with Afterthoughts Music Studio prior to Mastering.

Editing Audio

Editing audio, MIDI, and other digital files typically goes hand in hand with mixing. This is the process where cuts and fades are implimented to audio in Pro Tools. This also includes organizing sessions, naming tracks and files, automation, time and pitch correction, or altering notes, velosities, and patches to MIDI files.
