Rob Small Mastering

Vinyl Mastering

"There are only a couple of mastering engineers I count on when it comes to spot-on mastering and Rob Small is one of them."

Saeed Younan, Younan Music

Over the past few years, there has been a pleasant rise in vinyl releases. If you are a label that is thinking about releasing your material on vinyl, then you’ll almost definitely need a set of vinyl masters creating.

Vinyl mastering is a very different process to mastering for a digital release. Particular attention needs to be paid to the phase, correlation and overall frequency balance and of course the ceiling and dynamics.

In short: bright, loud & compressed masters will not translate well onto vinyl and could also create improper groove geometry during the actual vinyl cutting process. Vinyl masters are smoother, subtle, warmer and noticeably different to masters you would hear on download sites.

1 master revision per track is allowed inclusive of the fee. All bulk order files must be sent in the same working day for the discount to apply. Due to the high volume of mastering requests we receive, we require between 2 and 5 business days for the turnaround time on your mastering so please be patient. We will let you know the scheduled date for your mastering ASAP.

Please inform us if you require urgent mastering. Please make sure that you're completely 100% confident with your mixdown before you send your track to be mastered. If your kicks are too loud, or your hats are too high, then the mastering will enhance this.

PLEASE make sure your mixdowns are done to the best of your ability and that you're satisfied before sending. There will be an additional £5 fee if mixdowns need to be altered post mastering and sent to be re-mastered. This is to cover the additional studio time spent remastering your material.
