That 6 hours per album assumes what, 12 songs/80 minutes (a CD's worth?) just curious...

Pricey, innit? :-)


But 80 minutes is only a 9 or maybe ten song CD... lol

Hey, thanks a lot for everyone that had some ideas about this. We were looking at Abby Roads studio because a friend's album is being mastered there and they claim the sound is unmistakably awesome. Additionally, we have looked into Tony Buzzeo, who mastered The Strokes "Is This It?" and Interpol's "Turn on the Bright Lights" (a 330 on that).

Kenny, when we build a list of finalists I'll be sure to repost here for who we're thinking of and thank you so very much for the help; the personalized thoughts from Ric isn't included on the price tag, but it sure is nice to ensure long lasting customers. Along with a steller product.

6 hours, yeah can be done!

I just spent 2 hours on one tune today and I'm going to guess It will need another half an hour?

for Abbey Road 180 pds isn't that bad, really?

I'm doing a lot of this album myself, but I wouldn't dream of not having another set of ears, just to cross the "T's" and dot the "I's".

I agree that a mastering is very,very important and It will "make or break" you.

As far as a good mix or mastering for a Ric? hell I thought they sounded prefect, no matter what we did to them???

Cheers

When I mix an album, I mix during one week long session. This ensures that the sound is the same running through the entire album. For this reason, mastering is relatively quick. If you are mastering songs from different sessions & with different sounds, then an album can take considerably longer to master.

Although I always use Nick, all the mastering engineers at Abbey Road REALLY know their stuff.
