Technical requirements to files to be mastered
In order to achieve best results, please, make sure the following requirements are followed, before sending us files for mastering.
- Bit resolution: 32 bit float if possible / 24 bit / 16 bit is extremely undesirable, but sometimes acceptable.
- Sample frequency: 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz or 96 kHz.
- File formats: wave, aiff
- Dithering: not required
- Fades: if possible, please do not do fade in/out.
- Compression and limiting: Switch off all limiters, maximizers and finalizers on the master channel of your DAW. Very slight restrictions (limiting) of the peaks is permissible in case if you know how does it work.
- Loudness: Very important to reduce the loudness on the master channel’s fader to the peak level about -3 dB. Maximum peak level -1dB (no clipping), average volume level should not exceed -15 dB RMS.
You’ll simplify our work by providing us a reference track “how it should sound”.
Please, do not forget to give us your comments and desires.
