I know it is really ballsy to ask for free mastering, but here is the story. I'm donating time to a band that was my first client to record an album. These guys are a bunch of really talented high school kids that play on borrowed gear, and they come from really low income households. Each of their stories sucks more than the next...and me being brought up in poverty with a single parent that only made 15k/year to take care of two kids and living in a one bedroom apartment with 6 people...it hits a soft spot. So I decided to give these guys a week to record all of their tunes (10 total).
I'd like to have the tracks mastered....nothing special...just a once over to give them something that they can be proud of and sell. On my end I'm going to do my best to make sure this is one hell of a recording (from a small home studio standpoint) so I'm hoping a once over won't be a lot of work. They've offered to pay me with what they sell, but I can't take their money...they don't even know that I'm asking for free mastering.
If anyone would like to hop on board let me know....like I said....I know it is nervey to ask this, but if there is someone that wants a guinea pig to practice mastering on...here is your chance!
