CD Mastering Prices

You visited my website for a reason.  You want your music to sound GREAT at an affordable price! 

 
ALL songs are mixed & mastered by me, John Rogers, author of the Audio Mastering Secrets Book.  I've mastered over 30,000 songs and worked with over 7,500 satisfied clients since 1999!
 
This IS NOT an automated mastering process using presets (this doesn't work).  Your entire CD will sound consistent and the very best it can since I use over 17 years of experience on every project.
 
I love music and treat every project as if its my own!
