Mastering and recording studio

Syrphe also does some mastering production for musicians from the electronic, industrial, ambient, techno, drum'n'bass, noise, experimental, electro-acoustic, breakcore [...] scene.

It does not mean that Syrphe is not interested by other music such as jazz or punk or whatever else, but electronic music has been my specialization for more than twenty years now and I know and enjoy this music. That is why I prefer working on this kind of material ; my aim is doing the best job possible, no stupid business...

Anyway, I from times to times also master some guitar oriented music... So if you think you would like to work with me feel free to write !

What am I able to do for you ?

  • Transferring your music from an analog or digital audio source (tape, CDr, DAT, minidisc, vinyl...) to a digital support ready to go to the disc factory.
  • Declicking, denoising (no massacre here as one can to often hear, I take a lot of care while de-noising masters from tapes), expanding, equalizing, compressing, spacing the tracks and/or cross-fading them, adding indexes, adding effects and so on with professional digital material only.
  • Archiving your old recordings from cassettes (standard or Dolby B & C), vinyls, DAT's and minidiscs.
  • Two Red-Book Standard CDR with the final result and/or digital files (cue, toc, iso, flac, ape, wave, aif, dpp...).
  • If you have some specific requests, feel free to write me.
  • Please do not send overcompressed material, the global compression is one of the last steps to do.
  • If you press a vinyl, ask the pressing plant if the master can be given on a cdrom or digital 24bit, 48kHz (or higher quality) instead of an audio cd (16bit/44.1kHz).

What about the price ?

  • A mastering (album/mini album up to about 12 tracks) costs around 250 euros.
  • A two or four tracks 7" or 12" would usualy cost between 50 and 160 Euros.
  • You can pay me now via paypal, cash, IMO or bank account transfer.

Of course the price depends on each case, feel free to discuss about this, some albums require more or less work so the price may change !
