Will was on a conference call with Greg Rollett the other day talking to Label 2.0 members about maintaining audio quality throughout the recording process, and the importance of mastering for independent artists.
We almost didn’t share this for two reasons…
The first is that the sound quality from recorded phone calls is notoriously bad (and this one is no exception). The second is that the people this call was intended for are all paying members of Label 2.0. But Greg gave us the go-ahead, and so here’s a slightly shorter version of the conversation.
This is good information, and not just on audio mastering. Those of you who do your own recording should pay special attention, because your music has a serious advantage (and a unique disadvantage) when it comes to distribution.
Check it out, and listen for your opportunities to make your recordings better…
It’s a whole new world for the DIY musician, and it is definitely possible to make a living in the music industry without a label! If you have questions about the stuff Will is talking about here, feel free to contact the SoundOps studio.
We don’t just care about getting paid for mastering your CD – we really do want to help you get your music out there the right way, so as an independent artist you have the best chance to be successful!
