MASTERING FOR DIGITAL PLATFORM AND CD
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.
How long does it take to have the master ready?
:: In generel it depends on the project lenght. In any case 1 day. If you have an urgent project, please let me know about and I try to work something out for you.
Delivery of master files:
:: It is possible to deliver you a DDP-Image of your master file via email (DDP-Player) for a printing plant for CD release or I deliver your files ready for digital release on streaming platforms. Please note – nowadays every single streaming platform has their own limit on loudness level, so please let me know about the platform you will release the record; There is no longer reason to squash the hell in loudness out of the record; A good loundness level in harmony with a better dynamic level fits the best listening to human ears –
What is a DDP-Image?
DDP stands for Disc Discription Protocol. DDP-files are used when sending music to a CD or Vinyl manufacture. This files allow me to set the exact gap between the songs and crossfades, ISRC-Codes (Label-based), Track-ID’s and special artist needs like artist name and album name for instance. Please make sure, the chosen manufacture accept DDP-Images. If you have any further question, please shoot me an email!
