FAQ




  1.  What is Mastering?
    To add that polished CD & radio sound.  Mastering takes care of two things during the post production process.  First it addresses spectral and dynamic process.  Secondly It formats the audio for the audience listening and distribution.
  2. How do I track my Royalties?
    The ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) code allows you to track online distribution and plays by embedding a unique code into the audio file.  Various companies such as BMI, Soundechange or ASCAP will track purchases, plays and distribution for you.  We are a registered and authorized ISRC code studio manager with the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) and provide this embedding and registration FREE of charge to our full production clients.
