Depending on the project, stem mastering usually takes around twice (or more) the time a stereo master takes. For an approximate base figure, simply double the rates above. You will, however, receive a quote tailored to what your project demands (number of stems and how much the mix achieves the ideal sonic result - therefore how much stem-based processing and parameter automation it requires - are the main factors to determine the customized rate)
Apple Digital Masters: $10/track
Alternative versions: $20/track
Metadata Creation: $5/track
DDP Files for CD Duplication: 10% of the album mastering rate
Vinyl or Cassette Premasters: $20/track
Revisions after the first two: $20/revision
