IMPORTANT MASTERING SERVICE NOTES

USING OUR ONLINE / REMOTE MASTERING SERVICE  
/// As our engineers won’t be working with you in person, it’s important for us to gather as much information as possible about how you’d like your song to sound.
/// Sending a commercially released reference song is also very useful.
 
Instructions like these will immediately give us a better idea of what you’re expecting and we are always open to suggestions.
 
In most cases, the turnaround time is within 3 days. However, Sound Pressure Studios and its engineers are very busy, so in exceptional circumstances it may be longer. If this is the case, you will be notified and given the option to cancel your master and receive a refund.
