Professional and Affordable Mastering for the Independent Musician
Dynamic Sound Service is a custom built mastering studio recently relocated between Chicago and Detroit in Kalamazoo, MI. We work closely with our clients to get the most out of their mix and create a master that clearly translates your work in the best light possible, making it ready for duplication and distribution.
Within this website you will find information on our services, processes, rates, and how to prep your material. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. Every project starts with a phone call, text, or email…
Mastering is the final step in the audio production process before duplication and distribution. It’s the last chance to give the album that final ”professional polish”. The mastering engineer provides an unbiased/fresh pair of ears and their experience to bring your project to its full potential. Once mastered, your project will sound fuller, richer, louder, and become a cohesive unit that translates more consistently from one playback system to another.
Includes audio leveling, dynamics, and equalization adjustments; noise removal; fades/crossfades; and track sequencing & spacing. Mastered material can be used to generate a CD Master, Mp3s/digital files intended for internet distribution, or a vinyl pre-master.
This information is intended to give you an estimate of costs. Please feel free to contact me and I can get you an personalized quote based on the length of material, quantity of songs, desired formats, etc of your unique project. Some clients have 1.5 minutes songs… others have a few 17min songs…
Unattended Sessions (files are uploaded or mailed-in):
-Masters are delivered in sequenced AIFF or WAV format over the internet.
-Vinyl Pre-Masters, DDPs, Redbook Audio CDs, MP3s are also available.
-Revisions are built into the rate… we are done once you are happy.
If you would like us to ship a physical copy of your master directly to a duplication facility or if you live out of the area, shipping costs will be billed at actual cost (plus packaging if necessary).
