We also master for vinyl. If you need masters for vinyl, let us know when you deliver us your files. It is an additional $10 per song because the audio is processed differently. if you only need vinyl mastering, then it is the regular rate.

We can deliver your masters in any ro all of the following formats depending on your needs: WAV files, DDP File Set, CDR master

IMPORTANT! Do not use limiting and compression on the stereo mixes that you send to us. If your mixes have been overly compressed and limited using a volume maximizer or brickwall limiter we can't do anything with it.
