My short video on mastering your EP:
EP mastering requires the finest quality analogue and digital equipment housed within an acoustically optimized environment. I will make sure each track on your EP works perfectly together and as separate tracks in their own right. (revisions within reason are free and inclusive)
Mastering an EP (extended play) is an economic way to get your music mastered as you get a very reasonable quantity discount applied compared with working with one single track. This discount is applicable because once the equipment is set up and I am focused on work time is saved compared with setting up the project multiple times.
