CDMaker in conjunction with Dauntless Mastering Announces Free Audio Mastering in May for orders of 1000 or more.
CD projects of 1000 or more units placed at CDMaker in the month of May 2013 will receive free audio mastering (a $700 value) of their entire project. The mastering will be performed by Dauntless Mastering by engineer, Chris Sonia.
“What better way to help a band than to help them free up some of their budget to be able to order more CDS?” asked Chris Sonia.
Audio mastering is a post-production activity that ensures that the sound when a track is played does not contain sound defects and sounds the best when its played on specific equipment. For instance, an mp3 file that is mastered as an audio file for mp3 playback will always sound better than a wave file mastered as a wav file for audio player backpack and then converted as an mp3 .
Special software and equipment is utilized but it also requires listening skills of the mastering engineer. Mastering engineers are usually very experienced audio engineers. Every decision made during audio mastering will be based on the accuracy of the engineers’ hearing.
Those who place their audio cd order with CDMaker in the month of May, pay in full and place a mastering credit within their artwork will receive a full length digital audio mastering of their project. Normally a full length mastering project runs $700.

“Chris and I connected via Facebook. We started talking and then he sent me samples of some of his work – before and after,” said Carolyn Holzman, owner of CDMaker. “We discussed ways of announcing this as a new service at CDMaker. Then he came up with a way to not only announce it as expanded service but to do it in a way that would actually help some lucky bands.”
