My band just finished tracking our first record and actually spent. We're shopping around for a good mastering house and I was wondering if you had any advice or suggestions on a great place for an experimental rock band. It's a 6 song EP that sits about 32 minutes. We've got a budget of only about 600 to throw at mastering. Side questions: How much should I expect out of mastering? Are there any tips you have for getting a good mix out of a trio? If you're feeling fancy you can check out a live recording. here: YouTube - Youth PastoR - Testy also: YouTube - Youth PastoR - Railroad Champion EDIT: The reason I ask you is because of your vast experience in so many situations you may have some special insight.
