HOW IT WORKS
My goal for every song is to help you achieve the best result possible for your music. If you're ready to have your song(s) mastered, the first step is to send a wave file and I'll have a listen and see if any aspect of the mix could be affected or need to be "tamed" during the mastering process. I'll generally do a test master to listen for any small changes that will help improve your mix and then send them to you. If we need a few listens to get the best mix ready for mastering, we take that time to do so.
