At PegasiaMusic, we offer to distribute music entirely for free download (our releases are all available freely on our Releases page), however we also offer mastering services at a competitive rate.
What is mastering and why would I need it?
Mastering is the final process of production for an audio product, before it goes into distribution. It gives a product its consistency in dynamics as well as giving an overall flow. Here are some of the reasons people may require mastering for their music:
- It’s lacking in volume and sounds flat compared to other CDs.
- The instruments and sounds seem thin and the overall mix appears quite dull.
- The bass seems to be lacking in kick and affecting the EQ in the mix to compensate, only makes the track sound muddy.
- The dynamic range of the full product seems too great or not great enough. Either way, it doesn’t feel comfortable.
These rarely add up to being a mixing issue and can be solved with mastering.
If you want to use our services, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each song should be submitted as a 24 bit 44.1kHz wav or aiff file. There are many ways to get these files to us; we suggest a site such as Dropbox or something similar.
Once we have finished mastering your song/album etc, we will send you a private link to the full product in one long file (via Dropbox) for you to review. This will be in mp3 format. If the end result meets your expectations, we will send an invoice and, upon payment, we will send you the files in 16bit 44.1kHz wav format (Red Book CD standard).
We offer a fixed rate for our mastering services at £15 per track, plus an extra £5 for a master disc if desired (P&P varies based on location).
Payment for services is done via PayPal, which accepts credit/debit cards with or without a PayPal account.
“Pegasia really blew me away with their work. I don’t think my release could have been mastered any better than it was. Listening to it for the first time after getting it back was a great experience and really solidified everything that myself, and the label, had worked towards. I think it reflects greatly on Pegasia as a label, and how hard they’re willing to work in the name of quality music.”

“Ben and Rob at PegasiaMusic took on my time-critical mastering job with speed, professionalism, patience, and a keen eye for detail. They really added that sparkle to the final product – and turned it around in record time. Their services are a wonderful value for a kickass end result.”
-Mark Rossmore (Escape The Clouds) – Until The End
“Diligent, attentive and sympathetic with the tracks whilst being unafraid to put forward their own ideas for improvements. I would not hesitate to recommend the mastering service PegasiaMusic offer. Very pleased indeed with the results and will definitely be using Ben and Rob’s ability again. Thank you.”
