EDITING AND MIXING
After you’ve completed adding all of the elements of the sound, we move onto the mixing process. Sometimes we break this down into two parts: editing and mixing. Editing is the part of the recording process where we make corrections to the performance, such as choosing parts of different vocal takes or removing unwanted sounds from the recorded tracks. Depending on the level of production you are going for, we can keep editing to a minimum or we can go over everything with a fine-tooth comb to ensure the mix will totally shine.
Once everything is cleaned up, we are ready to mix. Mixing is where we will add effects, like equalization, reverb, delay, and compression, to the individual instruments in the song, or as a whole to groups of instruments/voices. Mixing will also balance the relative volume of the individual parts within the song.

You are done recording and your mix sound great, but your songs just don’t have the impact as you expected them to have, especially when compared to other similar music. This is where mastering comes into play.
Often overlooked, mastering is a critical part of finalizing your production. It is like mixing, but with the intention of balancing the complete project. We will add further compression and equalization to the entire mixes. Maybe do a few things to add some extra creative character to the album. We will be adjusting the start and end times of each song and how much of a space there is between songs. We will also analyze the audio to ensure there will be no problems when your music is played across different platforms, like CD, Vinyl, or MP3. Mastering will ensure your music will sound great whether your fans are listening on cheap earbuds, in the car, or on a hi-fi stereo system.
When mastering is complete, we will provide you with high-resolution audio files that are ready for duplication and distribution.
