Albums/EP’s with more than 15 tracks
If you have an album or more than 15 tracks, please contact me. I will offer you a fixed price or price quote based on my hour-rate of € 70 per hour.
Same day delivery
It’s possible to do same day delivery mastering with a maximum of 2 tracks. I will charge € 50 per track. It’s NOT possible to order same day deilivery mastering using the online ordering system. Please contact me first to discuss the possibilities.
It’s not possible anymore to attend a mastering-session. For albums it’s sometimes a good idea to still come to the studio for final tweaks, listen to the final masters together or for making the sequence/transistions of the album. Attended mastering will be charged per hour starting at a rate of € 70 per hour. After the first hour I will charge per 30 minutes. More on attended mastering can be found on the FAQ page.
Restoration and editting
Restoration and editting will be charged per hour starting at a rate of € 70 per hour. After the first hour I will charge per 30 minutes.
Full payments should be done upfront.
I prefer the use of the online order system for regular per track mastering. Using the online order system you can place the actual order and take care of the payment using various payment options like paypal, iDeal, creditcard, sofort and many others. In case of an album or specific wishes that will not fit the online order system, please provide me with all this information: companyname, contactname, adress, VAT number, emailadres and other details. You will receive an agreed upon invoice and after the payment is take care of I will start mastering.
All prices are excluding 21% VAT.
