Mixing & Mastering

Perfecting sound since the 90's

We have been mixing songs since the 2-inch tape machine. We started When a recording studios were full of hardware from the 90s until early 2000s so we understand the plugin version and how to make it sonically mainstream, radio sounding is the bar. We have a slogan and rule we go by ‘it's not whats wrong but how do we fix it . with the advancement of recording most of the inspiring artist record at their home studio. All rooms are different producing each and ever recording we mix different . we pay attention to any and all the background noises that got trapped in the recording. we have thousands of plugins to choose from to give each client that personal detailed attention they deserve … All vocals no matter how good have a problem frequency our Team seeks out and find that problem area turning the problem to plus . with All our engineers also being beat makers and producers getting music to jump out the speakers is always a priority and goal. when the music is clean and Dynamic it sets up the vocals. We create pocks for the vocals Standup in the track putting the vocals in the listeners face producing a Pleasant reception for the ear...

We where mixing big recordings in the 90s . while some of our guys took engineer courses some of the Vets learned on the job. Knowing hardware that's now plugins is a major advantage saving us time and the client money. Because we understand how important the artist feel and vibe is to them and we never let it get overlooked or lost in the mix.. Muliti track mixing we only charge $125 persong or song or a project up to 14 songs for $10,50 . mixtape mixing ( music as a 2 track mp3,wave , Vocals Only is only $55 per song or $500 per project up to 11 songs.

We combine Technology with wisdom and Feel. To have its sound good but not feel great is a loss to all involved. when it comes to Trap music or today's Hybrid music that crosses pop, Hip-hop and Club the music happens in the Low frequency . from 30-300 kHz we go to work.

We have studied and Mastered the Art of CLEAN Bottom In. Its no good to have Great vocals that the listener struggles to hear. we never Sacrifice that KNOCK. we know that two things make a song. the Beat and the Lyrics we maker sure Both are front and center in a Basketball terminology Imagine LeBron James and Michael Jordan on the same team, that's how we vision the Low Frequency and vocals while thy Both play different roles with equal importance combine the tow and its a WINNER.

5Khz. we focus on a lot and has become master of pushing the track a little more to the front and give the singer a much-needed presence.

Mixing and mastering music are two separate but equally important parts of the audio production process that can often become blurred and hard to differentiate between. Basically, mixing is the step before mastering that involves adjusting and combining individual tracks together to form a stereo audio file after mixdown. The stereo file is then mastered, which ensures that the various songs are clearly polished and form a cohesive whole on an album. This defines mixing and mastering in their simplest forms. Let’s take a deeper look at the numerous other differences between mixing a mastering.

After all of the individual tracks of a song have been recorded, a mixing engineer steps into work their magic. They begin by labeling and organizing the tracks into their similar groups. The song is often Normalized to ensure that the tracks are all at similar volume levels and no tracks peak. The engineer will then EQ each individual track to get the best tones out of the instruments and use high and low pass filters to eliminate any unneeded frequencies. The general goal of EQing is to make adjustments that allow all of the tracks to inhabit their own frequency areas. This allows the song to be clear and each instrument distinguishable. The same idea is also applied to panning the tracks to get a full, wide sound. Compression, reverb, delay, and other processors can be added to each track to get the desired tones for the instruments as well. Manipulating fades and effects throughout the songs with automation can help the engineer control the emotion of the song sonically. A lot of engineers will switch between headphones and the studio reference monitors to get a consistent sound for their mix on various sources. After hours of tweaking knobs and faders, and the song sounds as best as it possibly can: It’s time for the mastering engineer to step in.

Mastering Steps
The mastering engineer receives the stereo track along with some notes and reference songs from the engineer and/or the artists. This will help give the engineer an understanding of the sound that they are going for and so that the mix isn’t altered in areas that are intended to sound a particular way. Then, the finishing touches are added to the song by making slight adjustments primarily to the EQ, compression, limiting, and stereo enhancement. All of the songs mastered on an album are brought to similar levels so the album flows and is cohesive throughout. Spacing and fades are added to the beginning and endings of the songs. Usually, the Red Book standard of 2 seconds is added in between songs unless otherwise specified. Audio mastering engineers often offer sequencing services for albums to put the songs in the desired order, label track names, as well as encode the tracks with ISRC. The mastering engineer’s primary goal is to provide a high fidelity, high clarity, professional sound that can be enjoyed by listeners on any source.

You could have a great mix without a great master, or vice versa, and still be unable to achieve a professional sound that can compete in today’s music world. The line between mixing and mastering should never be blurred. Attempting to combine these two steps into one will only hinder your music and prevent it from reaching its full potential
