Online mixing procedure
- All tracks separated
It’s necessary to provide all audio tracks apart. So a separate bass track, a track guitar, lead vocals, backing vocals, and so on. Everything must be delivered separately. The drums have all different microphones that were used separately from the audio are delivered. Give all these audio files a short corresponding name. So kick, snare, etc.
NB: SEE ON THIS PAGE FOR VARIOUS SOFTWARE PACKS HOW TO MAKE AN AUDIO EXPORT, ALL TRACKS SEPERATED.
- Unprocessed audio files
In addition, the audio should not be geprocessed, so no compression, gates, reverb, delay, and so on. We need completely clean sound. The only thing is, if you use a specific effect on an instrument or voice which determines which sound, such as an overdrive on the guitar, you have just that provide geprocessed again. So the effect. For example, a leslie effect on a Hammond organ can be normally transmitted. (Well you make it work for us more enjoyable when you can also enclose the clean sound).
Besides often specific effects such as delays or vocoders used on vocals. These effects can also you also export with the track.
Remember that once you’ve used a stereo effect that you do a stereo bounce / export for that track!
- The same starting point
Perhaps most important of all: Make sure all submitted audio files have exactly the same starting point. We can notwork with little pieces ofMaudio that we ourselves still have to put in the right place.
- Deliver audio “clean” to
make sure all the audio tracks that you provide neat and ready-mix. So no clicks at the beginning or other junk sounds that need to be cleared. Also check noise during recording you might think it’s that bad, but when it will be mixed and mastered such noises get way more noticable. Every edit to be done by us takes extra time and we must unfortunately charge. So check all your tracks if they are neat and clean on delivery. Also important to know: We use no autotune or other tricks.
- Audio Format
Deliver the files preferably in WAV format with a minimum bit rate of 16 bits and the sampling frequency must be at least 44.1 kHz. We prefer to operate with a bit-depth of 24 bits.
- Reference File
Deliver a single track of a song that you will sound awesome and want your recording to resemble. Keep in mind that it should be realistic, we can not let an accordion recording sound like Rammstein.
After we have been instructed by you to mix your music, you deliver all the above audio files. We prefer to receive files via wetransfer . You can email us: email@example.com
The mastering process
Step 1: Send your unmastered mix via Wetransfer to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your name, email address and phone number. State your wishes clearly, so that we know what you expect from the master. Also attach a referencefile! A piece of music (.mp3) from a reputable artist that you want us to use as a reference. After review, you will receive an invoice, or possibly first some tips on your mix. After payment of the invoice we will get to work.
Step 2: Within a few days (usually) you get the first version of the track mastered for you.
Step 3: If you want to make an adjustment, you get 2 free revision options. If you still want even better results, you can opt for additional revisions what you pay for each. You can rest assured that every revision brings you closer to your goal.
