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...

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 pressing plant.
  • Declicking, denoising, deverbing, repairing, de-essing, etc. (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.I use iZotope RX8 as well as Reaper.
  • Archiving your old recordings from cassettes (standard or Dolby B & C), vinyls, DAT's and minidiscs.
  • Red-Book Standard CDr's (for non Red-Book Standard CDr, at your own risks !) with the final result and/or digital files (cue, toc, iso, flac, wave, aif, ddp...).
  • 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 in the following format 24bit or higher, 48kHz or higher quality instead of 16bit/44.1kHz.
  • Please, in order to make the job easier and avoid any mistakes, would you like to fill in this form (Google doc) regarding the format(s) you provide and want, etc. ? Thank you.

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.
  • Per track the price varies between 20 and 40 euros.
  • You can pay me now via Paypal, cash, bank account transfer, Transferwise.
  • All prices can be discussed case by case.

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 ! If you need a mixing and mastering service, or specific jobs like audio restoration, then contact me to discuss about the job to be done and we'll agree on a price.
