Unattended Vinyl Mastering:

A separate vinyl master is created before test cuts are performed. The master is adjusted from the results of test cutting until the cut is right. We don’t just cut digital masters to save time and money. The method we use is more time consuming but gets much better results. All vinyl is cut from a 24 bit master file or direct from tape. We don’t cut digital masters with all the compromises that brings!!!!! We do it properly, we master for vinyl!!!

*All Independent label prices include free of charge masters for digital release. This applies to any vinyl single up to 4 tracks. These masters are sent after the session and after the vinyl has been cut! If you wish to approve the digital versions of masters before vinyl is cut then you can add this to your order. Its will cost an additional £25 per track.*
