I get it. Mastering with a pro can be expensive. That's why on my most recent releases, I decided to just do it myself. Of course, it took me 8 years to figure it out! Now that I've done the work, I want to pass on what I know to you at the best value possible. Sure, you can go ahead and spend upwards of a thousand dollars at other studios, or you can spend $10-20 to get a mixed bag of A.I. Mastering done that will only give you sonic enhancements.
That's a pretty big discrepancy, and mastering is too important a task to not get done properly. It includes much more than making tonal adjustments, although adjusting the tonal balance of your tracks is vital. Professionals almost always recommend that recording musicians get their music mastered by a third party, and make it a real person if possible because the thing you won't get with automated mastering is feedback. Feedback on your mix is perhaps the most critically helpful thing a mastering engineer can do.
But with so many options, and so many claims to "we will make your music sound amazing", how are you to choose?
here's what I'm offering. One song, completely mastered, FREE! Let the sound make the decision for you.
You literally have nothing to lose! And after that, I will master tracks for as little as $9.99. It's amazing value. But the proof will be in the product.
I did a bunch of blind testing on the online mastering services, and I found that I wasn't ultimately happy with the results.
My masters translate better to all playback systems, are punchier and have more clarity. And since I love helping people, I would love to master a song for you for FREE. I'm serious!
If you are a first time customer and have a single, and want to see what it could sound like professionally mastered, I can do that for you, and will send you a file that is ready for distribution, and I will not charge you a dime.

Here's my satisfaction guarantee: your song or podcast will not only sound worlds better than when you sent it, I guarantee that it will sound better than the competition in the same price point.
Your song will also be mastered to a competitive loudness level without clipping or artifacts, even when converted for distribution to major streaming services. Guaranteed!
My Mastering service includes precision adjustment of fades at the beginning and end of the track, tonal balancing, width adjustment, compression and loudness maximizing, and quality control for good sound on a multitude of speakersa and listening environments. All of these things makes a HUGE difference. Another part of audio mastering is balancing a collection of tracks together so that they feel like a cohesive whole. This is another part of my service which most automated services lack, and none do particularly well. I also offer additional services in click, pop, crackle and clipping repair, as well as noise reduction. These are all part of my standard low rates! My ultimate goal here is to give you excellent value for your money.
The turnaround for most projects is 1-10 days depending on the scope and size of the project. The smaller the project, and the better the mix, the quicker the turnaround will be.
If there is a way that I feel adjusting something in the mix could significantly impact the quality of the final master, I'll tell you. I want your track to sound as amazing as possible!
I am a lover of music and podcasts.
I can master Folk, Jazz, Electronica, EDM, Hip-Hop, R&B, Rock, Metal, Pop, Acoustic, Bluegrass, Celtic, Reggae, Gospel, Contemporary Worship, Orchestral, Choral, cover songs, and your podcast! You name it, I can do it!
Then all you need is a google drive, drop box, or a microsoft one drive account. I prefer google drive, but I can work with whatever you have.
Upload a single stereo 24-bit WAV file of your song to google drive, dropbox or whatever file sharing service you use. I can accept sample rates up to 96khz, but prefer 48khz.
