Before the mastering process begins, a phone consultation will be scheduled so that technical and creative aspects of the project are determined before any work begins.
Depending on the size and number of the songs to be mastered, a variety of different options for uploading, or mailing if necessary, will be made available. Once the best method has been determined, We will load the files into our system so that the work can begin. If there are any issues with the upload, a second consultation may be necessary to take care of any technical issues that may arise.
Once the songs are successfully downloaded by us, the mastering work will begin. Most songs are completed one per day. Shorter songs with lower track count can be completed 2 or more per day. Longer songs with a higher track count may take two days to complete.
As part of the audio mastering service application process a timeframe for the completion of the work will be established. The timeframe for completion will be based on current scheduling and a realistic timeframe for uploading and verification of your songs. No mastering work will begin until all the files are verified.
Please send us an email or call us if you'd like any revisions to the mastering. We want you to be one-hundred percent satisfied and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.
The final masters may be downloaded via FTP or delivered through wetransfer.com.

Mixing is basically tinkering with everything you have recorded to complete your songs. You'll do things like drop in effects, adjust fader, EQ your tracks and so on. Think of mixing as putting the puzzle together. You're putting together the parts of what you have recorded, making sure everything hangs together right, and putting some finishing touches on things. When you're done mixing your songs, you should pleased with the way the song sounds and feel confident that you don't need to add anything musically.
Mastering is adding sparkle and shine to your music. In a very basic sense, when you master your album, you're making sure that song one doesn't blow out the speakers while song two is barely audible - in other words, you want the levels of the songs to be similar and you want a general sense of cohesiveness to your recording, It also add the finishing touches to the song to bring it to its highest poetntial, making as loud as possible without distorting and making the song sound big and strong while sounding wider and clearer to emerge you in its sound. No song should be without mastering!
Mastering is the final step in bringing your recording to its optimum potential. It gives your music the professional commercial quality necessary to compete nationally and globally.

After working on countless songs and albums, mastering engineers develop an acute sense of sonic and musical knowledge that is key to successful mastering. It’s also a huge plus that the mastering engineer wasn‘t there when you recorded and mixed your album. Hearing your songs for the first time, a fresh pair of ears can offer truly objective advice.
By the time a project gets to the mastering stage, it has already been recorded and mixed. Consequently, any adjustment to one element of the sound will affect other elements as well. For example, an adjustment to the lead vocals may also affect a horn section or guitar. Masar Tv's mastering engineers spend years perfecting the art of the subtle compromises required to make these adjustments without impairing the overall sound. The end result is greatly improved sound quality and a cohesive finished product, in which each song or section of a song works with the whole to create an optimal listening experience.
Absolutely. If there is another album that sounds similar to how you'd like your album to sound after it is mastered, we would definitely like to hear it. This will help us understand your creative direction and sonic preferences.
At Masar Tv, we listen to our clients as closely as we listen to their work. Too many studios try to apply a one-size-fits-all approach to the mastering process, instead of adapting to the individual needs of each artist. Our engineers are flexible enough to understand what each client seeks--from a highly polished commercial product to a low-fi indie sound--and skilled enough to make that vision a reality. That's because our engineers have dedicated years to studying the art and science of mastering. We approach each project with the same care and individual attention.
Every project we work on goes through a quality control phase after it is complete. In the quality control phase another engineer listens to the project from start to finish, judging it by our strict quality standards. If he/she finds that something isn't working, the album is sent back to the mastering engineer to make a revision. Quality control also includes artefact removal, which means restoration tools are used to remove unwanted noises including digital pops and clicks, distortion, mouth noise, click track, anything that detracts from the intended aesthetic of the song. It's basically another close listening to be certain that everything sounds the best it possibly can. We provide this service to add another check and balance and make sure we provide our clients with the highest quality mastering.

Please Note: ISRC is NOT required to use our services.
The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is an international standard code for uniquely identifying sound recordings and music video recordings. The code was developed by the recording industry in conjunction with the ISO technical committee 46, subcommittee 9 (TC 46/SC 9), which codified the standard as ISO 3901 in 1986, and updated it in 2001.
An ISRC code identifies a particular recording, not the work (composition and lyrical content) itself. Therefore, different recordings, edits, and remixes of the same work should each have their own ISRC code. Works are identified by ISWC codes. Recordings remastered without significant audio-quality changes should retain their existing ISRC codes, but the threshold is left to the discretion of the record company.
The provision of ISRCs is overseen by appointed national ISRC agencies. These national ISRC agencies issue codes directly to the public and may also utilize authorized ISRC Managers to issue ISRCs. In the United States, the appointed agency is RIAA. ISRC codes can be obtained directly from RIAA for an administrative fee ($80 at time of this publication) or from a commercial ISRC manager. Only in territories where there is no national ISRC agency does IFPI provide codes to users.

For the past 10-15 years albums have seemed to get louder. This trend is sometimes referred to as "The Loudness War." Some people seem to feel that the louder their record sounds, the better it is. This is a trend that we hope to help reverse. It's surprising how little understanding there is of the compromises that have to be made in order to make a recording louder. Unfortunately, there is no “11” on the knob. Nonetheless, people often ask us to turn it up without compressing it any more. The loudest any digital signal can be is digital zero. So there are basically two ways to make something that peaks near digital zero louder, one is to compress it heavily, then add makeup gain to get it as close to zero as possible and the other is to clip the peaks transients off of the wave form. Both are destructive to the natural dynamics of the music.
With that being said, if having a loud album is important to you, we will do our best to get the album to the level you desire with the least amount of negative consequences. We have a lot of experience mastering both loud and dynamic albums and we will work with you to get the sound that you desire. We will do our best to educate you about the pros and cons of making your album loud, but we will not stand in the way of your creative vision.
We believe in keeping my customers happy. If you are unsatisfied with your results We are willing to make any small changes and adjustments free of charge. For bigger adjustments you will be able to use your Free Revisions option. For revisions to a mix after it has been Mastered there will be an additional fee of $25. We do NOT make refunds.
Yes, it's true. We will continue to revise your master until you are totally satisfied with the final result. Once you hear your master, if there are things you want to change about it, simply call or email us with your change requests and we implement those changes and send you another updated master using either your free or purchased revisions. Simply put, you will get a master that is of the highest possible sound quality available.
Revisions are changes or edits you would like made to your Masters once they have been sent to you. Any revisions to a Mix after it has been Mastered will cost the Revision fee of $25.00
