MIX ANALYSIS for MASTERING

An option that can be added to your CD mastering service is to have a Crazy Daisy mix engineer review your mixes and provide you a technical feedback report prior to mastering. Click here to see a sample mix analysis report. After reading the feedback report you may decide to refine your mixes, if necessary, and provide us with any updated tracks to use for mastering. For this service, simply provide us with a single stereo .wav or .aiff mixdown audio file for each song just as you would for any audio mastering service.

  • Cost is $5 per track (up to 5 minutes) when added to any mastering service.

More details can be found on our Vocal and Instrumental Separation Mastering page.

"We just want to thank you for doing such a great job with our album. We put so much work into the recording, yet we took shortcuts like recording drums in a kitchen. You took a DIY recording and made it sound major-label worthy. Thank you for helping make a year's worth of recording and headaches worth it."
