    I will be needing some mastering done on several albums very soon, this seems like a place that has many people who really know what they're talking about and doing. My only question is does anyone here have alot of experience mastering hip hop & r&b music, and if so a couple questions for you. How much do u charge, how do u preffer the songs when they come to u? (all tracked out, or a 2 track mix? completey free of effects, or with effects? compression or no compression? etc)

    u can hear some mp3's of my music (just mixed) at http://

    if u don't want to put prices or whatever on here u can email me at scottaltall@hotmail.com

    I appreciate your time.

    It can vary from engineer to engineer, but you almost can't go wrong with 24-bit PCM files.

    On the other questions, most of it is probably covered in this PDF...

    Most of the suggestions in there are pretty common to most M.E.'s.

    Sorry for not answering your question but did you just start a Label? "Needing mastering work on several albums very soon"

    Many people have registered here with similar questions asking for prices and credentials, then getting a price they did'nt like and never seen or heard from again.

    Tell us you're not a tire kicker :cool:

    lol. I'm not going nowhere. I have 7 underground albums out and 2 nationwide releases out. I have my own lable with many artists on it & their albums are about done, that's why I will have more then 1 album that will need to be mastered soon.

    I belive you :wink: .

    Just looked at your website. Good one.

    You even wrote a wet song (for love making) :cool: Fun Lovin Criminals allways do it for me.


    But if you browse the Mastering forum here, you'll notice a few ME's that have touched some platinum stuff (I'm not one of them).

    If I remember correctly, RO does not allow marketing here. But there is nothing wrong with an Email.

    Here is something to start with:

    http://dongrossinger.com/don/hiphop_proj.html

    http://classicsound.com/mastering/joedisc.htm

    http://www.turtletonestudio.com/mike.html

    And those are just the moderators.

    And I'm not completely English speaking so marketing might not be the right term but I think You know what I mean, by not using the forums/threads to generate business, directly.

    you can email any of the ME's here and they all have websites if you want to check their(our) credits. Email them privately. they'll be happy to give you quotes and answer any questions you have.
