Savings, Quotes, and Remix Substitutions

Having a RedBook PMCD Standard Master is an important part of the service here.  I most often recommend delivery via my top-quality, triple-checked CD-R stock.  Should you prefer digital delivery of your finished files, and since that saves me time, materials, and shipping costs, I can pass the savings on to you!  *The digital delivery discount is NOT in addition to other specials or discounts.  ALSO - If you want your project delivered digitally, PLEASE READ THIS PAGE   CUSTOM QUOTES:  If your project times out into the next banding by a minute or two, I’ll be glad to give you a “to the nearest minute” rate that could shave a few $$ of f the project total.  Let me know the total running time, and I will give you an exact quote.  REMIXES:  I assume your tracks have already been mixed to your satisfaction upon arrival here.  Sometimes, though, it happens that remixes may be required.  If you decide to substitute any mastered mixes that have already been processed, a charge of $5 per recorded minute applies. 

Single Track Mastering

...If your project parcels out one track at a time, BLANTONE MUSIC will master 1 track (NOT TO EXCEED  five minutes in length) to (1) RedBook CD for $115 including shipping (or digital delivery for only $75)

DEPOSIT REQUIRED

A deposit 50% IS REQUIRED before your project is slated for work here.  The balance is due prior to delivery of the completed master.

ISRC CODES

I am most happy to help you administer this very important aspect of protecting your royalties in this digital day and age.  Blantone Music is an ISRC Manager.  To learn more on why these SHOULD apply to you, read this document I've put together.  Fee schedule is in the document.  Need to know more about CD text?  Want to have this information to display for your listeners?

any editing(except as noted)other than topping and tailing the files before final master production will result in extra charges at one hour minimum studio time for mastering (for "In The Box" ONLY).  "In The Box" Mastering does not include production of a RedBook compliant CD master...DIGITAL DELIVERY ONLY!!!  Call or e-mail for adding a RedBook compliant CD master for "In The Box" and "Single-Pass Mastering".  "Single-Pass Mastering" includes basic editing necessary for live material...and it's DIGITAL DELIVERY ONLY!!!

e- mail me for instructions on how to get files to me here at Mu-Spot. Digital delivery is a specialty here!
