DJ Warehouse is proud to introduce the newest string to their bow, the Mastering Suite. Located at the DJ Warehouse store in Melbourne, the Mastering Suite has been established to provide professional mastering and mixing services for electronic music at the highest quality at affordable rates. Run by Danny Bonnici, Nubreed member and Aria award nominee with over 15 years studio experience, we have built a state of the art mastering studio with high end equipment to ensure that your tracks receive the professional mixing and mastering they deserve.
Why should you get your track mastered by us?
Mastering is the final studio step before the manufacture of CDs and vinyl albums. The aim of the process is to enhance the quality of a track to ensure the sound is as near perfect as you can make it. This is achieved by contouring the EQ and dynamics to make the productions sound richer with a deeper quality for its final medium. As a skilled mastering engineer, we can make the difference between a good and a great record by polishing what is already there and providing a professional finish to your project.
Why should you get your track mixed by us?
Mixing is adjusting everything you have recorded to complete your songs and make sure everything belongs together. A lot of people are making great tracks at home but lack the knowledge, experience and the equipment when it comes to mixing the record. Trying to mix down a track in inadequate rooms and poor monitors makes it very difficult to get your record sounding great. We have a professionally treated room and top-of-the-range monitoring that ensures that the job is done right. By choosing us, you also get the benefit of an experienced, professional and well respected dance music producer with worldwide club hits under his belt.

How to send your track for mastering:
Firstly, get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com. Once you have made contact, you can send us your songs as DATA on a CD-ROM preferably 24bit 44,100 Hz in WAV or AIFF format. You can also simply send us your audio CD and we will convert it into the proper format for you. Here are a few important things to keep in mind when sending us your track to be mastered:
- It is important that you do not have your mix pegged to 0db.
- Keep the level down to -3 to -10 db so that you don't run the risk of audio distortion.
- Turn off all compressors or Limiters on the master output.
- If you need cross fades or fade ins / fade outs we will do it free of charge.
Once the mastering is complete, you can make payment via, credit card, or bank transfer. We will then send you a WAV file of your mastered track plus one free revision if you are not completely satisfied.
