Audio Production Services
Mixing / Mastering - Rates & Descriptions ov Services
We have been planning on making these services available for a while now. They are open to ALL bands whether you intend to release on Satanica or another label. i.e you pay for the work, so you own it to do with as you wish. There are many out there whom offer these services now, from the cheap & truly awful to very good but very expensive. We offer something a little different - a quality service at a realistic price!
Any questions or requests for the services can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org and following are the rates:
Premium Mixing or Mastering Service - $50NZD per track (song)
The prices are in "per track" as there is no real time limit on how long we will spent on working a track. Whether it be mixing or mastering, once we receive your raw tracks we will begin the work & provide you with Mp3 progress mixes via email as they happen. You can then decide from these whether you like the direction the material is heading in or to suggest any changes necessary.
Once the mix or mastering is finalised we will send you the result as 24bit Wave files on a DVD disc, and we will include on the disc any other format you require plus a normal playable audio CD will be provided also.
Premium Mixing & Mastering Combo - $80NZD per track (song)
Exactly the same as the above services but a discount due to ordering both processes at the same time.
The above rates may be negotiable depending on how many tracks you are doing & what your band/personal situation is etc. And also note that these prices are for mixing / mastering only, no editing. (apart from the usual tidy up ov the beginning & ending ov tracks during mastering process ov course!) i.e. the performances ov the instruments / vocals are already satisfactory & the song is ready for mixing or mastering.
How do you know if our services are any good? Simple! Purchase one ov these releases below from this page & instead ov the usual Satanica free gift you will instead receive a bonus disc containing some tracks from the release before they were Mastered.
(We only have an example ov mastering available at present, but a mixing example will be added in the near future.)If you buy any ov these and then proceed with one ov our audio services (including the Quick Polish!) the cost will be deducted from the fee!
Purchase this release if you wish to hear how our mastering can improve source material that is already mixed to a good standard.
Purchase this release if you wish to hear what we can do to improve raw & coarse source material (in this case recorded live to cassette).
"Quick Polish" Mastering Service - $45NZD for EP length, $60NZD for Album length
Maybe you don't have the budget for a full mastering job? Well then, perhaps our Quick Polish service is for you.
For a super low fee we will improve the sound ov your entire release. Obviously you can't expect the supra results ov our premium service, but nevertheless it will be a worthwhile improvement to your release at a very modest outlay! The time we spend on these is capped at around two hours & we will send one progress Mp3 if you require it during the course ov the service. The results will be sent to you as a normal playable CD which you can easily duplicate or a data disc with 16bit wave files if you prefer.
How to pay for Audio Production Services
We can invoice you via PayPal - that would be our preferred method. But you can also send a bank check or prepaid credit card via the mail with the master. But if you do these methods it would pay to register and/or insure your package. We expect payment upfront for the Quick Polish service & at least 50% upfront for the Premium services - in this case the Master discs will be sent when the balance is paid.
How to send your source material
Realistically if you are requiring mixing, due to the amount ov data it will have to be on a DVD disc or multiple CDs sent via the postal service.We would also prefer you send us material for mastering this way too, and in 24bit Wave or AIFF files. However, if necessary you can send it online as 16 bit Waves for EP length releases or 320kbps Mp3s/WMA for album length releases. There will be a $10NZD data handling fee for receiving material online.
