Mixing & Mastering

After your recording is finished you will need to fine tune the source materials to ensure they work nicely together. This is where mixing comes in.

 

1. EDITING
If you recorded elsewhere, I will make sure all the editing is completed. This includes track alignment, muting certain sources at specific times, taking out clicks and pops, as well as taking out noises that made it into the tracking process.

2. BALANCE
There must be balance in levels between all source material.

3. FREQUENCY
Sometimes frequencies can clash. When this happens, it is important to remove individual frequencies. This is also where you can add a unique tone to each instrument/artist if desired.

4. DYNAMICS
Dynamics describe the difference between the quietest and loudest parts of a recording. Sometimes it is desirable to level a source like a straight line (i.e. podcast). In other cases, the goal might be to make a sound punch or slam (i.e. song).

5. DIMENSION
The elements must be placed in an acoustic environment so that the sounds blend together giving off the illusion that they were produced and recorded in the same room at the same time.

6. EFFECTS
After all of this is finished, I can put unique effects like automation, reverbs, delays, and sound FX into the mix. This will give your piece its own flair of personality.

7. MASTERING
Mastering is the process that takes place after mixing which brings the recording up to broadcast loudness standards. It is the final adjustment phase making sure it will sound good to everyone everywhere.
