The art of mixing a song down in real time includes using volume, pan, EQ, Compression, and Sound Effects such as Reverb, Delay, and Chorus to blend and mix the multiple layers of tracks in your music to make your recording sound as clean and natural as possible.
A great mix is key to achieving top notch industry sound and is much more complex than simply adjusting volume levels on instrumentals and vocals although that is a key part.
EQ - When layers of instrumentals are layered upon one another they can take on a muddy sound due to shared audio frequencies. This is corrected by minor cuts and boosts to specific audio frequencies. Our audio engineers will adjust the highs, lows, mids and everything in between to deliver a clean crisp sound.
PANNING- Music is recorded and played in stereo, which means each element must be assigned a left or right speaker position. This is crucial in keeping the instrumentals from infringing on one another and allowing key aspects of the song to stand out.
EFFECTS- During the mixing process the audio engineer may add effects such as compression, reverbs, delays or other effects to bring you music to the next level
We have a vast library of effects and proudly use the Industry’s Standard in Wave Plug in Options.
AUTOMATION- Since different song elements need to be brought to the forefront in different parts of the song, volume levels, panning and effects need to be automated so that vocal or guitar solo will be at the perfect level each time the mix is played.
Our engineers are experienced in all genres of music and have worked with National and International Recording Artists. Our staff is comprised of talented Artists and Producers who understand individual artist needs. We understand that every client is different, and we are here to make sure you are satisfied with your whole experience from start to finish!
Mixing can be done in the studio by the hour with the client in the studio or by a flat rate quoted by mixing engineer without the client in the studio.
Rates are typical but may vary due to the number of tracks as well as the size and length.
