CASSETTE MASTERING

In which format shall I deliver my mixes?

:: Please send your digital stereo-files in that format your material were mixed. Please don’t do upsample your mixes in sample rate! Bitdepth is minimum 24Bit. You also can deliver a cassette, if you recorded live on or mixed to a cassette for instance.

How about duplication?

:: In case of duplicate, I have a professional partner I work with. The most case is printing on Ferric Cassettes, Tape Type I.

Pro’s on cassette tape type I ?

:: The Ferric (FeO) type is very nice to get tight low mid/open upper mid frequencies and soft top end (Type-I – standard since 1960s). After a long time period of testing cassette tape types, Type-I is the very best conclusion out of Type II-IV relating to frequency response, high-frequency distortion, level and noise-floor.

Which lenghts are offered?

:: Every lenghts from 2min. to 45min. each side. For example – 12.30 minutes each side – If you have different side lenghts, it is better you prefer the longer side for A-Side and the shorter for B-Side to do not have a silent break at the end of A-Side.

How long does it take to have the cassettes ready?

:: In generel it depends on the project lenghts and the amount of cassettes. In any case 3 to 4 weeks. If you have an urgent project, please let me know about and I try to work something out for you.

Is there an offer for cassette design?

:: Yes, but I don’t do this part on my own. I have a professional partner who work with me. However, I offer different cassette colours and cassette cases. When you have any further questions, please let me know and shoot me an email.
