    It's £25 per track instead of £30!

    would a demo mean one song mastered but you have no rights to that version?
    I might have myself a song mastered

    No, mastering suites don't get any rights or anything mate - I provide a technical post-production service. I just make your tunes sound wicked & as fat as the big tracks! But I don't add anything musically.

    How I work the free mastering demo offer - I master your track, then splice it in with the original for instant A/B comparison. There are a few cuts, in all the different sections of your track so you can hear how it sounds throughout. Then assuming you want the full version you fire me over some dollar, & I send you the full master! :mr_cool:

    hello, can you give me a basic run down on what you will do to the track? And what equipment you are going to use to master?

    Thanks.

    30£ a track is cheap! Especially if the track is 30mins long:D

    Hello guys, & thanks for the interest :)
    No worries for the offer.

    Wicked to see so many tight producers on here :D For mastering there should never be an "always" in signal chain or processing used! I optimise the dynamics to give punch & power (NOT to be confused with just "loudness"), EQ it so it sounds sweet across a wide range of systems, sometimes tweak the stereo image & a few other bits & bobs, & then make the intrinsic volume "loud"!

    £30 is very good value, you're right. Why such value? There are quite a few cheaper places than us, but a lot of WAY more expensive places - fine if you're a huge name & are going to sell a tonne worldwide & get loads of PPL & PRS income, but there are shitloads of labels wanting to get great deals for producers who will sell a thousand maybe, & still want brilliant sound.

    I'm also very good value because I have f*ck-all overheads - I'm not in a major city, so rent is dirt cheap, I own all my kit outright, I haven't spent a mint on decorating the place all pretty, & only do online mastering, which keeps things like insurance costs down (as well as tea & biscuits ;)

    A lot of mastering suites add on a few 100 £££ just so you can ponce about & say "oooh I had my record mastered by......." but at the end of the day, paying lots extra for mastering by a big name isn't going to equate to more sales, more radio play etc. etc. If it sounds fat it sounds fat. No-ones going to say "Well I love it, but I won't play it out because I've never heard of the mastering engineer!"

    I'm the regular mastering engineer for the ex head of A&R for Warner-Chappell, a pressing plant (who outsource it to me), & a load of labels & managers worldwide (& producers of course). They keep coming back to me for the sound & service, as well as the price. Credit crunch & all that! My tunes regularly get on BBC Radio1 etc. USA Billboard charts etc. etc.

    The sound quality of the room & the masters are dope. This is what matters at the end of the day. My room has no parallel walls, has been treated to f*ck, yields a flat response, I run your tracks through a 64 bit system into tasty highly respected Blue Sky System 1 monitors (co-designed by the ex-heads of engineering at both M&K & B&W) & have a lot of experience & tricks under my belt.

    You can send tracks over via the dropbox link at the bottom of the website. www.fatasfunk.com

    Biggup! :pimp:

    Oh yeah, soz forgot to say - a 30 minute track????? I assume you're talking about a mix, not some mentalist D&B-prog-rock-acid-ambient crossbreed? If you are I want to hear it! :)

    Final price for a mix would depend on how many tracks are in it etc. I've done them before but in general I just get asked to do straight albums/e.p./individual tracks.
