The mixing stage is all about balancing the elements of your song, getting the drums and bass sounding sonically correct, making sure the vocals are sitting right and the various musical parts are not fighting each other in the mix and the stage where various processing is used such as Eq, compression, reverbs, delays and other effects that make up the sound and sonics of a mix.
We will use various techniques to enhance and bring out the best in your songs which will include (if needed) drum doubling – converting your drum hits to midi and triggering samples to layer your existing drums.
We’ll make sure the bass and other instruments are also well balaced to your liking and we also pay great attention to the detail to every vocal track using Melodyne to tune vocals where needed and making sure all vocal tracks, backing vocals are all aligned.
This is the final stage after mxing and is like putting the icing on the cake which adds the clarity & sparkle including bringing the volume to stand proud against any commercially released song.
Using a combination of EQ, compression and limiting, mastering brings the level and sonics up to the industry standard ready for digital distribution, vinyl & CD duplication.
However, the the key to getting an amazing final master is making sure a the mix is on point. If a mix is on point, mastering is not a complicated task and this is why we always reccomend getting your songs mixed by someone who does this almost every day!
