    The Dauntless Difference

    Check out the Pre- and Post-mastering examples on the next page. Different styles of music call for different density and frequency response. Enjoy!
    We work from stems as well as from two-track stereo. The nature of every project is unique, so include details and MP3 examples in your correspondence if possible. If you are a studio owner/engineer please inquire about being placed into our collaborators program.

  • Pre- and Post-Mastering Samples

  • We're Here For You!

    • Record in at least 24 bit. 32 bit is preferred.
    • Check for sibilance/plosives. These are easier to remove in the multitrack phase.
    • Solo your edits. Edits can make "pops" or "thumps". Quickfade (10 miliseconds)in and out of cuts.
    • Export at 96khz/32bit if possible regardless of what you recorded at. The computer does less truncating.
    • Don't be afraid to contact us with questions!
    • When in doubt, we also master from threads.
