Mixing and Mastering

Meet Our Engineers

Luca Pretolesi         Scott Banks


What is mixing?

Mixing is the process of blending the individual elements within a song to create the highest quality mix possible. This process includes; balancing the levels of each track of the mix, fine tuning the sonic quality of each instrument and/or voice using panning to create a stereo image, equalization, dynamic processing and the utilization of effects to enhance the original recording.

What is mastering?

Mastering is the process of turning a collection of songs into an album (or single) and combining them to create a final master for manufacturing. In most cases, only one song is created at a time, resulting in each song peaking at different levels and having a different overall sound. Our engineers unify your album or single with skillful use of his tools to give a consistent sound and quality.


Mixing & Mastering Services Defined

Mix

A mix gives the engineer the most flexibility and ability to make any changes necessary to individual part allowing you to provide up to 35 stems. In order to achieve the highest overall sound quality, it is best to have each aspect of a song separated so that each can be fine tuned down to the smallest details. The artist sends their full session of audio tracks, each bounced from the beginning to the end of the session.

 

Stereo Mastering

This is the standard practice for mastering a song. The artist sends a stereo file of their final mix, which is then put through the final mastering process. The engineer is able to enhance the sound quality and adjust the song to sound better when played on specific sound systems. Since the files the engineer is working with are limited small adjustments to specific tracks will not be possible and any small issues he may find such as clipping or audio that is cut off cannot be fixed.

 

Stem Mastering Plus

A new service that allows the engineer to retain as much separation and dynamic range as possible and obtaining the clarity and loudness desired. The artist sends their full session of audio tracks, each bounced from the beginning to the end of the session. We then sum these tracks into the best possible stems to work from with the flexibility to revisit the individual tracks if needed.

 

Stem Mastering (6 Stems)

A mastering that is done by the artist sending files that have been summed into the following six stems from beginning to end of the session: Kick, Drums, Bass, Synths, Effects, and Vocals. This gives the engineer the advantage of being able to work with more individual aspects of the audio, compered to a single stereo file, while being very affordable.
