If you’re planning on having issuing a Vinyl version of your EP or Album a separate Master is required for the process as modern Masters do not translate well to Vinyl. These would actually be considered “Pre-Masters” and are a more or less identical version your master which is NOT limited, leaves ample headroom for a laquer disc to be made by a cutting engineer to work and is generally a digital file of a higher resolution than CD.
- Vinyl Master in Addition to CD/Digital Master – + $15 per Track
- Vinyl Master ONLY – $35 per Track
Note: We do not cut or produce vinyl in house.
DDP – Disc Description Protocol
DDP is a complete digital image of what your CD will be duplicated from, including audio, CD-Text for modern CD players and the appropriate spacing and or gaps between songs.
Why would you want a DDP File for your album? Because it’s the easiest way to go from mastering to production. No questions from the duplication company on information to go on the CD, just one file set to forward to them and you’re done! It’s even possible for your Mastering Engineer to upload DDP File Sets directly to some duplication services!
DDP file sets will always be In Addition To any other files you receive from us, so you’ll still get WAV files as well as digital formats upon project delivery.
- Discounts on CD’s or EP’s Mastered with Gigantic Mastering

Stem Mastering is available as well but please keep in mind for those who do not know: Please bounce your stems as they are in your mix and you are happy with the mix. We will leave all stem’s playback levels exactly the same, and not do any ‘mixing’ with the stems. Stem Mastering is to widen the options in Mastering as far as EQ or Dynamic choices and not in any way part of the mixing process.

- All Stem Pricing is for up to 4 Stereo Stems
- After 4 Stems Add $15 Per Additional Stereo Stem
