Can I send a mix revision during mastering?
Yes you can, I can recall my processing to the exact way your project is, but 100% of the time before I work on a project, I offer a mix check to make sure we can avoid potential deadline delays in mix revs. This always turns out in a smooth turn around!
What about mastering revisions?
Another good questions. 97% of the time I don’t get revisions due to my constant customer service and listening to clients needs, but like any service provider. I offer a total of 2 *free* revisions, after that is $10.00 peer review.
Why don’t you list your gear?
While other facilities list every cable, connector and equipment, that doesn’t mean they either have it or is going to be used. And that is a rabbit hole that I won’t go true, I rather focus to offer a true honest service that is tailored and that my customers are happy with the outcome. To short answer this, I use analogue and digital processing that is easy to recall and turn out my projects fast. (If you see our stories and Jesus personal Instagram you can have a glimpse of what he uses.)
