The minimum accepted format for any song to be mastered is 16 bit 44.1KHz (CD quality) WAV of AIFF with 24 bit source files strongly recommended. I can work from any uncompressed digital file format 44.1K or higher. Please submit the final mixes in a zipped folder via WeTransfer or other reliable FTP service in their original format with no clipping, limiting or sample rate conversion. If you prefer, I can send a link for you to upload your mixes via my secure FTP. DAT, cassette, vinyl and other physical media are also accepted sources with an additional transfer fee.
Clients are responsible for reviewing and approving all master parts before sending them to press or distribution.
Balances must be paid in full before any production masters can be released.
Maintaining safety copies and data backups is the client's responsibility. It may not be always be possible to recall and reprocess an exact master at a later date if data is unable to be retrieved or if I no longer have the same equipment used during the initial mastering process.
In the unlikely event of difficulties arising from equipment malfunction or errors, I will do my best to promptly remedy the issue at no charge. The studio is not liable for incidental or consequential damages. In any situation, the maximum liability of the studio shall not exceed the monetary value received for working on the project.
