Guidelines

Guidelines for a great master that’s on time and on budget:

  1. Sequence your album, love your sequence. The number one budget and deadline killer is re-sequencing.
  2. Love your mixes. The second biggest budget and deadline killer is re-mixing after you’ve completed mastering.
  3. Label your audio files, label your hard drives, label your DVDs or CD’s, and label your tapes. The third budget killer is having us organize what you can organize. What saves us time will save you money.
