Revisions: Here at Ryan Clement CD Mastering we understand that our clients are sometimes on a tight budget, we make every effort to deliver a great Final Master every time but once in a while there may be problems with the mix or mix quality. Revisions are usually done for free and will include minor EQ, Compression or editing adjustments. Extensive revisions that need to be done because our high quality CD Mastering brings out the good and bad in mixes may incur a small fee to re-master the song/mix because the problems can't be fixed in the CD Mastering Process. Songs that need to be re-mastered due to a mix issue and need to be re-mixed to fix minor problems may incur supplementary charges. At Ryan Clement Mastering we will only re-master songs or complete Audio CD Mastering projects free, if the problem/problems are coming from our Mastering end. We have been Mastering for so long and have so much experience repairing songs; we can fix most problems in sub par mixes and make them sound incredible so we hardly have to do Revisions.

CD Mastering Examples: I recently Mastered a song for Aftermath Records Feat. The Game and a song Produced by Chris Judd( Jennifer Lopez's ex husband/Dancer) and Music Producer. Below are high quality MP3 Samples of the songs so that you can hear the difference CD Mastering makes. We are extremely diverse and Master every genre of music including Urban, Dance, Rock, Pop, Country, Reggae, Metal, Spanish and More. We do not Master MP3 or WMA files unless that is all you have because they are ten times less quality then a .wav file. We prefer to Master stereo .wav files between -3 and -6 with no limiter or compression. Your songs should be mixed down low and clean with no distortion so that we have enough room for our new custom made Audio Mastering Tube EQ and Mastering Compression.

Songs must already be mixed down, we do not accept sessions. If your songs are on a playable audio CD we will convert them to .wav files before mastering, make sure the songs are in the correct order. If you are sending a Data CD or Flash Drive it should contain your songs mixed down to stereo wav format. Please include a piece of paper with your package that includes title of project and a list of your song titles in the correct order.

Why is it that your demo or CD does not compete with your favorite commercial releases?

Why aren't radio stations playing your songs?

Why doesn't your music sound big and up front?

Why don't managers and record labels call you back?

You need your songs mastered!

What audio CD mastering equipment do we use?

For CD mastering we use our 24 bit/192 kHz DIGI-Design Pro-Tools HD system along with a our new custom made Analog Mastering EQ, Manley Massive Passive EQ and our Manley Mastering SLAM Stereo Limiter/Compressor. We have one of the most professional audio mastering systems that money can buy!

Online Audio Mastering within 24-48 hours We understand that you may have to meet a strict deadline and need your project fully mastered within a couple days. We are here to meet your deadline. All you have to do is send us you’re mixed down 16 or 24 bit stereo .wav songs/files between -3 and -6 db with no Limiter or Compressor on overall songs/main mix using our MASTERING FILE UPLOAD SYSTEM, Make sure that we have enough headroom to work with and can add the right amount of Audio Mastering EQ and Mastering Compression without the song clipping or getting distorted.

Very Important! Make sure that you mix down to a stereo .wav file the overall level of your song should be between -3db to -6db, at the loudest point in your song the level should not go above -3db. You may need to bring your master fader down to between -3db to -6db so that you can get the desired level before you mix down.

Recording Correctly! If you record the right way and have your instruments mixed to between -6db and -10db before you start recording vocals or if you record your vocals over a stereo instrumental/beat bring that stereo fader down to between -6db and -10db before you start recording vocals. If you record with the beat lower (below -6) then you don't have to use as much Microphone or Mic-Preamp Gain and your vocals will come in a lot cleaner and will sound much batter. If your instruments are mixed too loud or your stereo instrumental/beat is too loud, then you have to raise the Mic Gain to hear the vocals clear and you will be competing with the instruments or stereo instrumental and your vocals will sound harsh and distorted. When using this technique you should be able to turn your headphones up to around three quarters volume or even all the way up and still hear the instruments/ stereo instrumental perfectly, if the instrumental or instruments are mixed too loud then you will not be able to turn the gain on your headphones almost all the way up with out the instruments distorting.

We will have your songs fully mastered within 24 to 48 hours from when we receive & download your Song/Zip File including your 16 or 24 bit .wav file songs and after you have made Payment Using our PayPal Payment Link. If you don't have a PayPal Account, click on! Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card in blue, right under the PayPal login option. Remember to make sure that the email Address that you typed in the email@here.com Text Field/Box before uploading your File/Files is the same email address that you use to make your Pay Pal, Debit/Credit card payment transaction... Since the stereo .wav files are going to be too large to send through regular email, please visit our MASTERING FILE UPLOAD SYSTEM and send us your song or full Mastering Project. If you are sending more then one song, please zip your songs/.wav files up into one folder so we can download your whole audio mastering project at once.

Please send one stereo .wav file for each song mixed down between -3 and -6 to give us enough headroom for widening, tube EQ warmth and high quality mastering compression. Remember to zip up all your songs into one folder and call the folder your full name and email address to make it easier for us to download your entire project at once. We will do the same when sending the mastered songs back to your email address so that you can easily download and burn them onto an Audio CD. We do not accept MP3 or WMA formats of your songs unless that is all you have and they are not distorted. MP3 and WMA files are not a high quality format, they are 10 times less quality then a stereo .wav or .aif file.

Preparing your CD for Audio Mastering by Mail All you need to do is send us your stereo mixed down songs burned as DATA on a CD-ROM preferably 24bit 48,000 Hz in WAV/PC or AIF format if you’re using a Mac. You can also just simply send us your Audio CD and we will convert it into the proper format for you. It is important that you do not have your mixes pegged to 0db. Keep the level down between -3 to -6 db so that you don’t run the risk of audio distortion. If you need cross fades or fade ins / fade outs we will do it free of charge. We have the fastest turn around time in the business. We will ship your mastering project back to you within 48 hours of when we receive it. Please allow 2-3 business days for free shipping. Please include a United States Postal Money order payable to Ryan Clement with the exact amount shown in our price list. Also include the Title of your project and the song list in the correct order. We can include CD text so that the name of your songs will show up on the screen in most audio players. If you are sending a playable audio CD please have it in the correct order.

Thank You

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your text which I got this morning. I want to apologize for the text I sent last week to you. I was facing deadlines and stressing too but that's really no excuse for my text which I sent.

I appreciate what you've done and the advice about helping my mix out for mastering and your suggestions about recording the bass direct. It's been a good learning experience for me to listen to outside professional advice like yours, so thanks.

And I do appreciate you remastering my album again and understand how crazy it is probably with all the other projects you have going on. Plus I know the economy has been hurting alot of people...and I now see how your mastering company is a non-profit gig. So again thank you for whatever suggestions and revisions you've done to make my master better.

If it's any consolation your name and webpage info are on my liner notes and I know everyone who buys it will see your info and advertisement. I can get the word out to other indie musician I know too and promote what your doing.

Again thanks for your work and professional attitude and I hope to work with you again in the future.


Love

My music is available to download on itunes U.S. and Canada!
