Upload Info: Preparing your tracks for Pete Maher Mastering
All I need for mastering is a well balanced stereo mix with no limiter or mastering plugin on the master bus during mixdown. Don’t worry if the volume seems low as I will boost it in the mastering process without compromising the dynamic range. I know it’s tempting to run your mix through a limiter to make it louder and more competitive but this will limit full potential. The more headroom you give me the better the results will be. Remember, good mixes make great masters. Please upload your mixes in WAV or AIF format with a maximum output volume of -3db (so no clipping please). It’s best to export your mixes at the same sample rate and bit size as your session. I’m happy to listen to a track first before mastering it and always happy to answer questions regarding the process.

* I’m receiving a lot of emails from unsigned artists asking to pay more to get a ‘major label’ service, so let me be clear about this. All projects that I take on are given the exact same level of attention. My unsigned rates are in place to support self financed artists and small labels. Unlike other engineers, I do not give priority to major label artists. For me, it’s all about the music and ONLY the music !! Pete Maher ..
