Rates & Services

Audio mastering*

ALBUM

Complete album : 275 euros or 300 USD, regardless of the format.
Additional services :
> DDP2.0 master : 35 euros/45 USD  including a DDP-player
> Additional formats (streaming, vinyl, cassette, cd) : 50 euros/60 USD

A mastering project includes a personal intake (after your initial e-mail), a quote if there are additional wishes, a few testrenders and a final master. I deliver masters that are tuned to your goals. A vinyl album requires slightly different master than a CD album. And streaming platforms have specific sound levels that are best taken care of already in the master.

SINGLE TRACK or EP

50 euros/60 USD for the first 5 minutes.
25 euros/30 USD for each following (part of) period of 5 minutes.

Stem mastering

Stem mastering can lead to much better results than just a final mix. But it also requires more time because of the individual tracks that need attention. Please contact me for a personal quote about this or make an appointment through Calendly


Production advice

Sometimes you’re not sure whether you’re there or not. In that case it’s wise to have a pro have a listen to your music. An objective ear can tell you where to make final tweaking to get it right.

You send me the material after which we make an appointment to discuss my thoughts. I prefer to do this via a video conferencing tool (Facetime, Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc). Usually we have a chat in which we hone in on the issues that you encounter and try and find a route for you to continue towards a great result!

The fee for this service is 50 euro (65 USD) per hour. Typically a conversation takes about an hour, sometimes a little longer. Should you later decide to have me master the music, then the fee for the first hour will be deducted from the quote I give you. After all, I’ve done some research for the mastering process already!

Audio restauration

I have extensive experience in the restauration of old material. When you don’t have the original master of the earlier project we work with various sources to get the best source material available (world wide) and work from there.

The available source material is digitized, analyzed and restored digitally with high resolution software. I have access to professional reproduction equipment for the digitization of any format. Having been for years the mastering engineer for a label specialized in the re-release of early 1980s music has given me extensive experience in this area.

As you can understand there is no fixed price tag for this sort of operations. My standard hourly fee for this work is 75 euros. Usually after you contact me we have an online discussion about the project. After that I give you a quote for the analysis part and a ballpark figure for the rest of the project.

You can also make an appointment through Calendly Via the app you can make a Zoom appointment.
