• LEAVE HEADROOM.  Some frequencies will need a boost.  Tracks should be well below maximum gain/volume.

 

• Use high quality media: WAV (preferably) or aif. Never mp3’s. Burn cds at the lowest speed possible – preferably 1x.

 

• Allow mastering engineer to create fades at the beginning and ends of each track. Leave reverb and sustained tails on each track.

 

• Keep the original audio quality. Do not down sample, or utilize any other bit-rate conversions. These changes may degrade the quality of the audio before it gets mastered.
