Popular FAQ’s

Unfortunately we work on an online basis only.
Once the tracks have been mastered, we will send you an invoice from where you’ll be able to pay directly from there via Stripe.

As soon as we recive confirmation of payment, we will release your masters immediately.

If you wish to pay either via BACS or PayPal, please let us know in advance.

Please remember that ALL REVISIONS are included in the price until you are 100% satisfied

At Swift we are firm believers that the better your mix is the better the master is going to sound.
It is therefore in our interests to make sure that your mix is sounding as good as it can be.

You are very welcome to get in touch with us if you have any doubts about the suitability of your tracks for mastering.
Please keep the following only as a rough guide:
1. Try avoid putting anything on the master bus. Any processor on the master bus could compromise the whole mastering process
2. Please try not to overcook your mix. Keep it at a nice level of about -15dB RMS / -3db PK (both dBFS)
3. Remember that bass is the principle cause of boosting the overall RMS
4. Check your mix with headphones at low level for distortion/glitches etc.

Purely based on the last 5 years, this is quite unlikely. BUT, should this happen, please rest assured that once we establish what went wrong, 99% of all our projects (including mixing) are closed within the 2nd revision.

Please remember also that all revisions are included in the price

There are no hidden charges.
Every quote you receive from us is inclusive of all the charges.

If any extra work is required, from what was originally requested or planned, it will be charged as an extra but only after you have agreed to this.
Let’s suppose for example you decide to re-mix your track (after your track has already been mastered) using a different vocalist. We will immediately let you know that any new mix of the same track will be treated as a new submission and you will therefore be charged accordingly.

We will notify you of this by email.

No work will be carried out until we receive a written acknowledgement from you.
We believe that transparency in business is the key to success and therefore you will never be asked to pay more than what has already been agreed.

ONLINE MIXING

Although I am mostly known for my mastering skills, I am pretty good at mixing as well. In actual fact, I have worked as a mixing and tracking engineer for a decade before I started Swift Mastering back in 2005.

Moreover, being musician myself and by having produced and composed music for many projects (from TV adverts, to documentary, to art installations and indie artists) I have the necessary sensibility that is required for this type of tasks.
