If applicable, please list any other album-specific or track-specific requests here. We will use our judgment if you have no specific requests.
Examples: "Make the album sound cohesive" / "Make song 3 sound bassier " / "Make spacing between tracks 2 seconds" / "Make the album "gapless"" / "Fix the hiss in song 5", or "just make it awesome". Note that we cannot make it sound "less produced". Please visit https://www.vocalmastering.com/audio-mastering-101/ to learn more about what mastering can and cannot do.
