Mastering music for film, tv and game libraries is a specialised profession that requires a great deal of knowledge and understanding of the music and clients needs. Over the many years at Audio Animals we have had the pleasure of working with over 500 music libraries intended to be placed in films, tv, games and other media. Previous clients include Colossal Trailer Music, Revolt Production Music, Liquid Cinema, Warner Chappell, Songs To Your Eyes, Proofsound, MYMA and Sub Pub Music amounts others. Below is a short video that showcases a few of our favourite tracks we have worked on and the placements they achieved.
Audio Animals supply a mastering service that is affordable and reliable for all library companies both big and small. Having worked with so many different library albums it's fair to say we have a great understanding of a wide range of different styles and sounds. We understand the deadlines some libraries have and will work tirelessly to always ensure the deadline is met. We also understand that tracks have various different alternate versions. Alternate versions of tracks such as shorter or extended versions are included in the single track price. As well as versions that are solo drums, solo strings etc. On occasions we have been required to record up to 9 different alt versions of the same track. We price this as one track even though there are 9 different versions because the master chain does not change. An important part of mastering alternate versions for film and tv is that all versions of the track 100% sync in line with each other. All masters are exported in both 24bit 44,100kHz and 48,000kHz. As well as 16bit 44,100kHz wav and 320kbs mp3.
