Listen to our playlist here : http://www.camilosilvaf.com/index.php#player
Note : Please DO NOT order until i’ve had a listen first ! This way i can ensure your music is fit and ready for mastering.
What I’ll need regarding formats : It can be WAV or AIFF. Only 100% finished and approved stereo files (no stems please). They should be at the same sample rate of the mix session at a minimum 24 bits (32 ideal !), unless you’re doing a mix down from an analog console / summing mixer and printing on a separate machine. In that case, the higher sample rate you want to print, the better ! Ideally, there shouldn’t be any brick wall limiters (Waves L1/L2/L3 for example) or any “volume” processes or enhancers on the master fader (iZotope Ozone, etc…). Also, please make sure that there’s no clipping on the mix. Level is irrelevant to me as long as these requirements are met. I’ll start by assessing the mix and if welcome (and if needed of course) I’ll be more than happy to offer feedback in order to improve the mix prior to the mastering session for a better end result.
Appreciate if you could include this info, spell and upper/lowercase corrected : Artist name, genre, composer, key, BPM and the artwork if available (or artist’s logo) in 1:1 aspect ratio. Not mandatory but always helpful !
Reference tracks showing me your goals regarding volume / tone are useful but not mandatory.
Terms of service :
Turnaround is usually fast, normally a couple working days. ISRC, MFiT free of charge but let me know in advance if you require them. One extra version (usually TV mix but can be also radio edit, instrumental or acapella) included in the price but it must be delivered alongside the main versions (if delivered separately it will be charged USD40). Additional versions are charged at a flat fee of USD40 per extra version. Revisions on my end are free of charge AS LONG AS, it is the SAME mix. However, a DIFFERENT MIX of the SAME SONG, regardless of the extension of the changes performed on the mix will be charged at USD40 per each mix re-submission so please make sure you’re 100% happy and positive about your mix before handing it to me to avoid extra costs. This is due to the analog nature of the process and also because there’s usually manual editing and preparation involved here so altering an already mastered mix is much more complex and time-consuming than just tossing out a new mix on a DAW session. Mixes longer than 6:00 will be charged at USD16/minute.

Format requirements : WAV, 24bit minimum, same samplerate of your mix session. No limiters or clipping will be appreciated ! No stems please ! Only 100% finished and approved stereomixes.
Camilo Silva F. Mastering : Human mastering you can trust.

Why settle for some random AI algorithm when you can have a real, trained, expert human taking loving care of your music ? World-class skills and gear at a price you can afford.
Our highlight isn’t about the gear or the room, but about what’s really important : The human resource. Camilo’s unique set of skills on audio, electronics and computer technology aren’t found anymore on an engineer nowadays.
That said, Camilo realized that in order to get the best results he needed to build and equip a mastering room under his exacting specifications and with top-notch design and technology. Being such a tinkerer, he decided that he wanted to be unique and to build something really unique to offer to his clients – So he did, and he’s built many of his mastering room’s equipment under his own Camilo Silva F. Brand including his D/A tube converters ! All of this complemented by some key pieces of state-of-the-art analog EQ, dynamics and A/D/A conversion.
Camilo has over 18 years experience, ten of them at the legendary Estudios Audiovision, where he was resident Recording / Mixing / Mastering engineer / Studio tech. He’s been dedicated exclusively to Mastering since Q4/2013 in his own facility.
