AIRSHOW’S MASTERING INFORMATION SHEET (editable PDF):
The Mastering Information Sheet shows all the information we will need from you during the course of working together on your project. You’ll see we need a log with titles and timings, as well as production, editing, and sequencing instructions; project title, artist, catalog number, and your contact information. If your masters should include ISRC and/or UPC codes, or CD Text, please furnish those as well. If you are creating an enhanced CD with audio and data, and/or if you are releasing some or all of the recording on vinyl, please contact us.
