What is mixing?
Mixing is combining all recorded music and creating one complete sound. This is done by adding EQ, Compression, effects, and level adjustments. A successful mix will sound full and musically cohesive.
What is mastering?
Mastering is the process of enhancing your recorded sound and making that sound bigger. A successful mastering will be more clear without removing any of the original qualities of the mix.
Should I master my music?
Yes. Mastering allows your project to compete professionally in the music industry. It gives you that commercial quality that industry leaders expect.
Why can’t I master my own project?
Although you can master your own project, it can be beneficial to have a second set of ears working on your project. Mastering engineers have developed a sonic discernment for music that may allow for a better mastering project.
Will I have input on the sound?
Yes. Throughout the process, you will be included in all decisions. After all, we work for you.
Do I need to use a certain DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) program?
No. We are equipped to handle your project no matter what DAW program you are using.
How do I get started?
To get started, simply go to our services page and click the service you like. You will either be directed to a payment page or be asked to fill out the contact form or call us to discuss the details of your project.
How do I prepare my tracks for Professional Mixing and Mastering services?
1. Only send the the tracks that you want to be mixed! If you send multiple takes, we will have to charge an extra fee for our time.
2. Edit your tracks before sending by removing the extra noises, clicks, pops, etc.
3. Remove ALL plugins. If you have a particular sound or plugin you would like to keep from your original production, send a bounced file with the plugin added so that we can use it as a reference.
4. All tracks must be clearly labeled. This will allow us to work on your project at a faster pace. Time is money!
5. Consolidate and Export.

Will I need an ISRC or do you provide one?
At some point, you will be required to secure an ISRC number, but, not for our services.
