Mixing

Make the song what it’s meant to be.

A great mix is the difference between someone telling you a story and you overhearing part of it from another room.

Here are some folk-pop and acoustic tracks I recently produced, recorded, mixed, arranged and played on.

And a few rock songs I recorded, mixed and mastered.

WHAT IS INCLUDED

  • A FOCUSED LISTENING SESSION to assess the song, identify the most important elements and create a plan for the mix.
  • OPTIMUM GAIN STAGING for maximum headroom and minimum noise.
  • EQ to give each element warmth, clarity and its own place in the mix.
  • MUSICAL COMPRESSION to bring out the energy and glue the tracks together.
  • Tasteful use of EFFECTS (reverb, delay, etc…) to give the song the right character.
  • AUTOMATION and SWEETENING so the mix is compelling from start to finish.
  • A RADIO-READY MIX

WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED

  • EDITING
  • PITCH CORRECTION
  • COMPING OF MULTIPLE TAKES
  • DRUM EDITING and TIGHTENING

EDITING RATES
I do offer all of these services at $40 per hour.

REVISIONS

  • The first mix I send you may be just right, and often it will be. If it’s not, I’m happy to do up to 3 revisions so you get exactly what you want.

A COUPLE NOTES

  • Please deliver all tracks to be mixed at once. I work in batches. The result is that you get your tracks faster.
  • I typically mix alone, at least to begin. It may seem strange for you not to be there, but you will get a better mix quicker. If it’s important to you to be in the room from the beginning, that’s fine. Just know that the first couple hours of a mix are generally very tedious if you’re anyone but me.

MIXING RATES
$250 per song
