What up SV,


I'm offering mastering your tracks for you for $10 a track, projects like demos-mixtapes price can be discussed for further pricing.


My equipment I'm using is M-Audio Profire 610 for AD-DA Converters and Yamaha HS-50 Monitors which are Yamahas updated speaker based off the NS-10s (Which are legendary in the studio world) and Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pros to monitor bass only. Next week i will be replacing my movin blankets :p with real studio foam or rigid fiberglass, still deciding. I can take pictures of all my gear and post it to prove I'm not making any of this up.


I wont lie and tell you my monitors are made for mastering, they are actually more for mixing, however if you read reviews on them several ppl use them for mastering too. True mastering speakers cost $2000+ for the lowest bottom end speakers, no bulls**t. So if I had speakers like that i wouldnt be asking for $10 a track. With what i currently have its still a great set up.


If I've never worked with you I will master a track for free for you, if i do that i will also post it in this thread for a before and after clip for other catz to see possibly. Also if you did pay me and didnt like the outcome i will either work with you if your not likin something or i will return your money if you just dont like the final product


Correct way for me to master your track, once mixed send me the track unaltered no compression, limiters, eq added to the mixdown. I will expect you have added effects to your vocals and the beats but just no effects added to the mixdown of the track of your vocals on the beat. If track has had effects added to it I will have to work at undoing those things before mastering it, better to have it unaltered


What mastering will do for your track is make it sound more radio ready, the volume pushed, more cohesion between your vocals and the beat. Mastering can also help fix a bad mix, a good mix is preferred obviously. Another piece of advice is mixing/mastering is usually never done by the same person or on the same set of speakers/monitors and same room, reasoning behind that if 1 person makes a mistake or doesnt hear a problem area in the mix, they will make the same mistake in the mastering stage. better to have 2 sets of ears when mixing/mastering 2 sets of speakers 2 sets of rooms.


but anyways im just rambling now, if your interested contact me through here pm me or in this thread or on AIM : eMakaSkulpture


I worked with a few catz on SV already with mixing/mastering although im not a fan of mixing i prefer mastering, but ya hopefully theres a few catz that can vouch for me round here, and $10 a track i think im really lowballing myself and my equipment lol, but i gotta start somewhere you know

Nice.. Just a few queries


1. I've never worked with you so i dont really wanna risk any money but i definatley wanna give you a go but i just wanna see if the end product is worth my money… soo?


2. You said the emcee is expected to add effects just not to the mixdown.. i'm kinda new at this so i dont know whats what, as in what do you mean by effects and mixdown.. like should the artist add things like reeverb, filters etc


Thanks

1. sure thing bro, and ya like i said if you havent worked with me, let me do a track for free for you then you can be the judge if you like what i have done


2. Basically im expecting that you have already gotten the track Mixed, wether by you or some1 else, and from that point on ill do the mastering. All i need is the track with your vocals on it ready as a song. If it has zero mixing or you dont know much about mixing, let me know, its better you dont mix it if your not sure about what you doing exactly, in that case i can mix it for you, but id rather stick to the mastering side of things


as far as i mean about the mixdown, you should have mixed your vocals, mixed the beat (Sv the beats are mixed already nicely) and you should have leveled the volumes of your vocals how you want. Then export/render/mixdown the track as a song like you would, but do NOT add any effects to this new file, thats where i come in to master it


let me know if you got any more questions bro, if youve got a track thats been mixed send it through to me

ya the vocals should be on the beat already, i mean i can mix too if needed, but to master just send me the song in wav or mp3 bro

hey bro since your interested in mixing too


ill do the track for $15 if you want mixing and mastering together


if im dealing with multiple sources though like 2 different emcees then add $5 for mixing each person, cuz each person will be done seperately when mixing


(also everyone sends files differently for mixing, so just talk to me one on one to decide best way to send me the files for a track if im doing the MIXING, cuz youll have main vocals, adlibs, backgroundz it can get confusing how to send all that)


if you just need one or the other mix or master $10 each
