- Full Track Mastering
In a recording studio, every little detail matters, from the size of the rooms, to the equipment available and the software used to operate that equipment at its full potential. Here at New Wave Music, we record in a medium-sized, 7’ x 7.5’ booth, which is fully insulated with 2” acoustic foam and a soundproof glass pane to view the control room. Our engineers not only train their ears, they train their minds to be flexible, while always thinking how to push a track to its limits. Rest assured you will feel comfortable creating in our studio, knowing that your music is in very capable hands.
Studio time with an engineer costs $60/hour with special block rates for 5-hour or 10-hour sessions. To book the studio without an engineer, it’s $30/hr with similar block rates for 5-hour or 10-hour sessions.

In the sense of music, mastering is the final step of audio post-production. The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and optimize playback across all systems and media formats. Whether you are recording and mixing in a million dollar studio, or recording in your bedroom closet (it's where we ALL started), you still need the final quality check of mastering. This ensures that your sound will be heard the way you intended it to be.
A common misconception is that online mastering tools will produce an exceptional master, so why should you pay so much for a mastering engineer? Online mastering tools use an algorithm to detect the transients of your uploaded track. Transients are the “spikes” in your audio that represent the highest decibel output throughout the track. Using that information, the algorithm will compress the transients slightly and push all other frequencies to match that level as closely as it can. There is no human perception involved, which gives the master an impersonal feel.
A great master makes an album consistent and balanced across all tracks. Boosting the overall output is a general aim to this much more precise end. Every track is unique and a high quality master requires the right touch. At New Wave Studios we use a variety of plugins to enhance the sound that we perceive through the mixed track. Mastering for a track or project that was mixed in our studio is $50/track and for audio that was mixed elsewhere, it's $75/track. All examples on this page have been mixed & mastered by engineers at New Wave Music.
