FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How do I submit my audio tracks for mix/master?


For mixing: Send all files in the full quality they were recorded. WAV, AIFF 44.1 24 Bit or higher is acceptable. If you're using Pro Tools, you are welcome to send the session after following the session prep steps at the Pro Tools link below prior to transfer. For all other DAW's, you'll need to name, consolidate and export the individual tracks (stems) prior to transfer. Also include the BPM for each song in the folder title. It's very important that your final individual tracks (stems) are clearly labeled before you transfer for mix. Please take care to double check your exported files and ensure that the filenames are clear and concise without any unnecessary characters or song titles. When exporting from your DAW, be sure to retain mono files as mono files and stereo files as stereo files. If possible, provide the raw recorded tracks without any processing or effects. Contact if you have any questions about this. Below are some external links to guides on how to prep your session and export on some of the most popular DAW's: PRO TOOLS LOGIC PRO X ABLETON LIVE CUBASE REAPER FL STUDIO For mastering: Please make sure you export your mix at the highest possible quality and also make sure the track isn´t clipping and level peaks stay below 0 dBFS throughout the length of the track.




What else do I need to send?


The more information you can provide, the better the results will be. Describe your vision for the song. Name reference songs of a similar genre that inspire you and that you love the sound of. Include a rough mix of the song if available.




How long does it take for my mix/master to be completed?


After placing an order for mixing/mastering, you will usually receive your finished mix/master within 2 to 3 workdays. Depending on schedule and current workload, we will work out a deadline together that you can rely on.




What if I don't like the result or want something changed?


I include 3 free revisions with all mixing and mastering projects. This is sufficient for 90% of clients to achieve a great result that they are happy with. If for any reason, you need more than 3 revisions, each revision will be billed on an individual basis as necessary. If I make my own revision, or there is a mistake, it will not count against your 3 included revisions.




What files will I receive when my project is completed?


Final mixes or master files can be obtained in the following formats: - WAV (16 Bit, 24 Bit or 32 Bit Float) - MP3 (320 kB/s)




How does payment work?


Cash, Check, Paypal, Zelle and Venmo payments are accepted. All projects require a 50% down payment before start date.




What if my songs require editing or vocal tuning?


All levels of editing, timing and vocal pitch correction services are available. But please be aware that every musician/band/song is different; so a statement of what is necessary, as well as the price, can only be made after assessment of your recorded material. Please reach out to make an assessment of what your particular project requires and what the cost will be.
