How Soon Will I Have My Mixes?

Generally we can turn around a mix for

  • a single song = 1-2 business days
  • EP = 1 – 2 weeks
  • Album = 2 -3 weeks

Of course this all depends on other studio commitments at the time you get in contact with us. However we would recommend allowing an extra week (maybe two in the case of an album) to allow for any revisions and making sure you give the mixes a good listen on a number of different audio players.

Mix Revisions

The prices above include 2 revisions to mixes. This allows you to listen to the mixes on different music systems (iPhone/iPad, iDevice Dock, car stereo, home stereo etc) for a day or up to a week and make notes on some tweaks that might need to be made. After two rounds of feedback you should have the mix you were looking for. If you do have any tweaks after this point those revisions will be charged at a rate of $55 per hour prorated.

Preparing Your Tracks For Mixing

  1. Make sure any edits are made and cross-faded. Solo and check cross-fades to make sure they are clean.
  2. Remove any compression, panning, EQ, effects from each track. If there is a track with effects, compression, EQ or Automation that is key to the sound of the track you can leave these effects on. Get in contact with us if you’re not sure.
  3. Bounce each track individually our bounce a stereo track of grouped parts from 0 seconds so each part has an audio file. Bounce mono tracks as mono files and stereo files as stereo.
