If you have any questions about limitations with this service, please contact us.

- Mixing of any kind. This deal is for mastering only.
Now, is that simple or what?! Let's get to work mastering your stuff...
These extras are easy to add to your mastering order and give you some really great additional options.
- Backup CD Master ($15) - You'll get one disc with your mastering order already, but it's a good idea to have a backup CD Master - especially if you're sending the CD we send you out somewhere for manufacturing. A Track Sheet is included for every Backup CD Master we make.
- Download Individual WAV files for each song after mastering ($25 flat rate) - Want us to just master your songs and deliver final WAV files to you so you can create "masters" as you need to? This is the way to do it. Download the finished WAV files right from your FTP account. You'll still get an actual physical disc from us as well after we finish mastering your project, but you'll have your WAVs without the wait. Price is a flat rate for ONE CD - doesn't matter how many WAV files we'll be making for you (up to 80-minutes worth). So, you ask - "Why is this an extra charge?" Because, WAV files are not automatically generated upon completion of mastering your CD. We have to go back and create those individually and that takes extra time, hence the extra charge.
- DVD-ROM Stuffed With Goodies! ($25) - A DVD-ROM (or CD-ROM - depending on file sizes) with everything you need. Individual files for each song in various formats so you can do-with-them-what-you-want and not have to hassle with making them yourself. Burn discs, put 'em up on your website and offer high and low quality streams, put them on your MP3 player, etc. Formats include: WAV (CD Quality), MP3 (high and low quality), WMA (high and low quality), REAL AUDIO (high and low quality). Artist name and song titles appear in each file as ID3 tag information.
- CD TEXT coding for your CD ($10) - For a flat rate of $10 for the entire CD, we'll add CD TEXT to your Audio CD so (in compatible players) your song titles, disc title and artist name shows up on the CD player's display. [Note: CD TEXT is not the same as ID3 tag information encoded into MP3 files or simple file names that programs such as Windows Media Player reads.] CD TEXT will only display on players with the CD TEXT logo. We can also submit your CD's information to the Gracenote/CDDB database so your disc information will show up when playing your CD in iTunes, Winamp, etc. This is included in the cost of adding CD Text to your CD ($10), but only done by request from you. We are a Gracenote Content Partner.
