Professional and Affordable Mastering for the Independent Musician
Dynamic Sound Service is a custom built mastering studio based out of Seattle, Washington. 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. You will also find a resource page with links to CD manufacturers, Vinyl manufacturers, graphic designers, and other service providers/information that will help you release your project. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. Every project starts with a phone call…..
Mastering is the final step in the audio production process before duplication. 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 well 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.
Unattended Sessions (files are uploaded or mailed-in):
• $45 per song or $400 per album, which ever is more cost efficient.
-Revisions are built into the rate… we are done once you are happy.
-Masters are delivered in sequenced AIFF or WAV format over the internet.
*If you are having a project mastered for CD or Digital release and would also like a pre master for Vinyl there is an additional $65 Charge.
*RED BOOK Audio CD Master – $30
*DDP file set of your Masters – $50
If you would like us to ship your master directly to the duplication house or if you live out of the area, shipping costs will be billed at actual cost (plus packaging if necessary).
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! I love to talk about music and mastering 🙂
