Fun Station 4 Kids Fundraiser Updates, New Mastering Demo Reels and Prices, Dialogue Fixing, and some Big Web Updates!
It's been a week and a half since the last update and much has happened since then, so let's get straight to it!
In other news, it's coming to the end of the JabunAudio's first tax year, so I've been doing some marketing adjustments to help set the stage for another year of business growth, and boy has this last year been a good year for growth! To kick off the new tax year, I've put focus into marketing my Audio Mastering and Post-Production Dialogue correction, and it's already started to get some attention (especially the Mastering)!
I'm now offering a set price for Stereo Mastering at $50/£35 per track based on a 5 minute track length, with fair adjustments either way for much shorter/longer tracks (these prices may be subject to change depending on demand). I can also give discounts for albums/EPs. My general philosophy in mastering is to create clean, dynamic and punchy masters which'll make you want to turn the music up rather than down. To find out more about my methods, philosophy and equipment, feel free to check out this Newgrounds Thread (Warning: be prepared for some bad language an unacceptable forum behavior courtesy of some rather unpleasant people... ). I'll likely type up some of the details on this website soon. I also created some demo reels to demonstrate by audio mastering ability. The clips are in pairs, with the first showing the pre-mastered mix, and the second showing the final master. These reels are downloadable for your reference and please feel free to share them with anyone you think would be interested. Hope you enjoy them.
As well as the mastering, this week I've been doing some small Audio Post-Production jobs on the side, mainly dialogue fixing. I'm aiming to market this more soon, though I can't give set prices at the moment since the work is much more varied than mastering. Prices start from around $50/£35, though exact quotes will be given on a case by case basis.
Finally, this week I've done some major updates on the website to incorporate the mastering demo reels and tidy up a little. I aim to add a page for mastering specifically soon, and/or a rates page for pricing though this likely won't be until later this month. Keep your eyes on this space!
That's all for this week. I unfortunately didn't have time to work on more Better Than The Book this week, though there was some progress after last week's post. I hope to get back to that soon. Anyways, thanks for supporting JabunAudio and please remember to check out and share the Dinosaur Kickstarter and/or GoFundMe fundraisers, our team needs your support to keep the channel going. Until next week!
