Mixing and Mastering FAQ

How do I send my song for mixing?

I mix songs in Pro Tools, but you can send files from any DAW. The best way to do this is to bounce each track down soloed from the beginning to then end of the song. Make sure to turn off all effects, eq, and compression unless they really help make the sound what it is. All audio files should be 24 bit .WAV/.AIFF files and at least 44.1K. Find specific instructions on how to do from your DAW below.

   Also send a reference track and any specific instructions you have for your mix, so that I can get the clearest picture of what your looking for before I start. When your ready just upload your files here.

How do I send my song for mastering?

When sending your two-track mix for mastering, please send as a 24 or 16 bit .WAV or .AIFF file. Turn off all compression, EQ and limiting on the master fader. MP3 files are not acceptable for high quality mastering, and converting them in itunes will not change this. You must bounce or export directly from your mixing software to achieve a true 24bit WAV file. When your ready click here to export.

How long will it take to get my song back?

For single song mixes, and mastering projects I will get back to you in 2 to 3 days. For full albums it will take about a week or week and half depending on how intensive the tracks are. If you are in a rush, please let me know and we can find a way to expedite the process for a small fee.

Do you use analog or digital gear?

I mix completly in the box, using the best plugins from UAD, Waves, McDSP, Soundtoys and more. I use Focal and Yamaha speakers to get the mixes sounding the best they can in any environment.  For mastering I do use some outboard compression, but the rest is done in the box. I find that I can get the best sound posible this way, as well as get project back to you in a timely manner.
