YOU'LL LOVE OUR RATES

L.Nix mastering
has a song based rate in place of the industry's traditional hourly billing structure for music mastering. "It's very important for artists to be able to budget exact costs so they can stay in control of their project", says owner Larry Nix, a legendary mastering engineer with over 30 years experience.

NEW: We are now available for Saturday sessions on projects with 3 songs or more!
  
Please view our Rates & Services page for exact pricing and payment information.
    

CAN I ATTEND MY
MASTERING SESSION?

Yes, you are invited to attend! No one is more Q & Afamiliar with your musical vision than you are , so we always welcome your input. Many other mastering studios charge extra for the client to attend their session, but we actually prefer it. We do ask that you limit the number of people attending to no more than two, if at all possible.
