MIX AND MASTER
WHY DO YOU NEED YOUR MUSIC MIXED/MASTERED?
-By mixing and mastering your tracks, you are making sure your music sounds the best that it can on all speakers, platforms, media formats, and devices.
-To stand out you simply have to have good quality. You have mere seconds to grab the listener’s attention before they skip your song. If someone starts listening to your track and hears poorly mixed vocals that clip regularly or cymbals that overpower the other instruments they’re going to skip your track.
-Your competition is what you hear on the radio and streaming platforms, you are essentially competing with your favorite artists for your audience's attention. So to ensure you’re on a level playing field, you definitely want to get your music mixed and mastered professionally. Even if it is not with us, take your time, and get your music mastered by the best engineer that you can afford, it will be worth it!
-Your audience can tell the difference! If you want their continued support or to gain more fans, you will want to deliver high-quality content.
IN YOUR MIX WE WILL ADDRESS:
Balance - the volume level relationship between musical elements
Panorama - placing a musical element in the sound field
Frequency Range - having all frequencies properly represented
Dimension - adding ambiance to a musical element
Dynamics - controlling the volume envelopes of a track or instrument
Interest - making the mix special
-A first draft is typically provided to you via email within a 1-2 week period. When you have received it, we ask that you thoroughly review the draft and provide us with your feedback in regards to changes and adjustments you would like to hear.
(We would love to get it all right the first time around but we realize there may be specific things that we add or tweak that may not be desired)
You have up to 2 additional rounds of adjustments after this first draft before any additional charges are assessed.
Upon your the final approval of your mixed and mastered track:
Your deliverable will be a .wav file (44.1khz or 48khz) and a .mp3 file (192kbps or 320kbps)
