I listen to the project and work on a single song to create a mock-up, based on our discussions and your references of how a song will sound. Upon your approval I work on the remaining songs and send mastered .WAV file versions of the whole project for your approval before creating final parts for release.
Once the sound is approved – I continue to make any parts necessary for release. This is when I make the final “Masters” of your music. These “parts” can be sent to you, or to your release facility. During this final phase I can also print additional versions of your songs to meet your project needs.
