Simple E-mastering Process and Quick Turnaround: The way the non-attended/Emastering session works is, if it’s a full album, Littman will master the most aggressive song first and send it via his ftp server for the client’s approval on the direction, tone and final loudness level. Once the client approves, Littman will gear the whole project to that vibe. If the client has specific ideas for time spacing between songs or cross fades, he/she can email Littman or leave it to his judgment. Littman will then upload a WAV file of the CD for approval before creating a digital master, making sure the client is always in the loop! He will also supply high quality MP3s and other required file formats to the client at no additional charge. Standard turnaround time is a week for a full CD, much less time for a single track.
