Re: $1 mastering

Is this a special rate for IDMf members only?

I ask as I see over on SC that you are/were charging a lot more before/usually.

Re: $1 mastering

Seems like a good deal...but the website doesn't offer a lot of info...how much effort are you putting in for a buck? I mean...for a buck I guess you don't have much too loose...but...just seems kinda spammy to me. No offense...just that this post and the website don't come off as terribly professional

Re: $1 mastering

Yeah, I've decided not to charge more typical rates because I'm not really at that level yet, and I'm working in the box. I kind of want to be able to say that the time I spend infront of DAW is making me money. I'm going to start out at entry level with hopes to improve quality. I'm kind of having growing pains switching from amateur to professional.

You may hear a 128 before you pay if you wanted to sample the service. But I guess you should always remember that you get what you pay for...

Re: $1 mastering

Yeah but if you want people to take you seriously, charge more. That's kind of shooting yourself in the foot and asking for 12 y/o's to come a running. Either that or just do a set of freebies, something like First 20 Clients get FREE song mastered!!! Then charge 20 bucks a song. Trust me, it's really better, and if you have a portfolio from the freebies, all the better.

Re: $1 mastering

I'll consider all this. One guy said he'll pay me more for an EP if he likes this one job.

Sorry about the link, I'll have to master some creative commons material or something and use that as an example.

Re: $1 mastering

Are you expecting people to Paypal $1 to you? It seems more like an inconvenience than a special offer tbh. Either free or charge more.

I'd back off from statements like this. Kinda makes it seem like...don't be pissed because my mastering sucks, it was only one dollar!

Anyway...curious what your setup is, monitors...treatment...gear/software...

Just asking because I've seen a lot of one dollar mastering services and 99% of them of been some kid with m-audio monitors and Ozone.

Re: $1 mastering

it says on your website that your current "mastering chain" is,stereo adjustment,eq,harmonic excitement,multiband compression,eq.

Just curious..what if the particular track doesn't require the entirety of your mastering chain,which is likely to be the case?.most mastering really just entails FINE eq adjustments and subtle tightening of the micro and macro dynamics where people haven't quite got the levels balanced out properly due to either a shit room or over reliance on effects to achieve a cohesive mix

I see mastering as more of a mindset than an actual process,compromising certain aspects of a mixes frequency content or balance in order to make other elements shine through which are potentially more important for that particular track,which brings me right back to the mindset not process thing.(serial procrastinators need not apply)

Re: $1 mastering

I think the little inconvenience of paying might be a good idea as it probably filters out a lot of crap.
