MIXING & MASTERING
Since we do not offer attended sessions at this time, our mixing and mastering services happen online. We do, however, offer a direct contact with our engineer in order to provide the best experience.
You would be asked to deliver the multitrack without any processing (unless it is an integral part of a sound). We would ask you to organise your multitrack by clearly labeling each track, exporting them from the same start point, at the same sample rate and bit rate. You are welcome to name the tracks the way you like, but please be consistent and make sure that the files are well organised, without and glitches, unwanted artifacts, etc.
Once we receive your files, examine them and confirm that they are ready for the mixing & mastering service, you will receive an invoice which must be paid upfront, before we start any work. Once we reveive the payment, our engineer will start mixing and mastering. You will be able to listen to the mix and master (as well as all revisions – should you need them) on a password protected link on our website. You will be the only one with the access to it. The link will contain an audio player with a WAV file so that you can listen and examine if you’re happy with the final version. Should you need any revisions, these will aslo be uploaded to the same link so that you can easily compare all versions. Once you’re happy with the final version, we will export all applicable files and deliver them to you via email.
DDP image for physical CD distribution will only be delivered if you provide us with the following metadata:
– official title of the song / songs
– official title of the EP / LP / Album
– legal names of all songwriters (specified for each song)
– ISRC codes for each song
– UPC / EAN (if applicable)
Turnaround time generally depend on the amount of songs and how large the multitrack is. It will extend if you hire us to mix and master an EP or an Album.
Usually, we send the first pass of the mix and master for a single song within 2 – 3 days. After we receive all files for the project and examine them, we will be able to give better estimated turnaround time specifically for your song / EP / Album.
