The entire mastered album  can be sent straight to the pressing plant in two wav. Files, Side A and B
Please provide all the track information with transitions/crossfades between tracks (if applicable).

Side Length Considerations:
Time limits for sides:

  • 7″ @ 33 1/3 RPM: 6 minutes per side [NOTE: 45rpm is always the best choice for a 7″, if side length permits. 33rpm is more of a “compromise”, and can be more prone to distortion. Please call for more information.]

  • 7″ @ 45 RPM: 4.5 minutes per side.

  • 12″ @ 33 1/3 RPM: 18 minutes per side is ideal, 20 minutes per side is still good, 22 minutes per side may cause issues depending upon the music.

  • 12″ @ 45 RPM: 12 minutes per side is ideal, 14 minutes is ok.

Time  limits are not a one-size-fits-all approach.  For example, 4 minutes of a soul ballad on a single side of a 7inch is a completely different record than a 7inch 45rpm side containing very bright heavy metal guitar or a loud Hip hop track. 

 

We are looking forward to working on your project. Please email us for further details.
