Mix + Master
Mix + Master
Mixing is taking the individual recorded tracks of a song and massaging them into place to create more depth, space, punch, and clarity for a given song. Each track within the song is processed separately to give each element its own space. This is accomplished by using a combination of plug-in software, and in some cases analog hardware, EQs, compressors, reverbs, delays, choruses, flangers, and many more effects. The end result of mixing is a track that sounds clear, pleases the ear, and is ready for mastering. Once complete, you’ll receive an email from us with a link to a Google Drive folder. In the folder will be a high-quality .WAV file and an .MP3 file of the finished master.
Mastering is taking the mixed single audio file, that is the song, and ensuring it translates well to all mediums, is at industry loudness, and adds sonic quality. Having a song that sounds great on car speakers, ear buds, or a home theatre system is the end goal of mastering. Using similar tools to mixing, EQs and compressors, mastering provides clarity, punch, depth, and volume to a song. In addition, a mastered song will have all the individual elements of a song glued together making sure the end result feels like a finished track, rather than a work in progress. Whether it be radio play, iTunes, or Spotify streaming, a mastered track is ready for distribution.
Once ordered, we’ll send an order confirmation email followed by another email to ask for the audio files. Once the files are received, we’ll start working on your project. When we finish the project, you’ll receive an email from us with a link to a Google Drive folder. In the folder will be a high-quality .WAV file and an .MP3 file of the finished master. In addition, we’ll include a write-up of the project, so you to see our process while working on your track. We’re looking froward to working with.
