Mixing

 Order  Mixing

We provide quality mixing services to give your song excellent sound quality.

How it works? You send us your recorded tracks along with notes and details about the song(s). That may include the emotion you're conveying, the mood of the project, etc. You can provide a rough mix and examples of other artists and songs that represent what you're about.

 

We will edit and mix the tracks and make it sound well-balanced with the great presence and depth. After that, we will send you the mix for revision, to give you the chance to get every detail of your mix just right for you (two  revisions are included as part of the package).

 

Once the mix is approved, you get free mastering for that song(s). In our mastering studio, we will improve the mix with careful tonal and dynamic balancing to achieve good translation on different sound systems.

How to send files

Once you order the service, we will send you a link to which you can upload the files.

 

Our working days are Mon-Sat. Estimated return times are usually 5-10 days, do not include day of order confirmation, are based upon current workload at the time of order. If you require your order by a specific hard deadline please specify it in the order form.

 

We accept audio files in WAV and AIFF formats.

 

There are a few organizational steps you need to take to prepare your project before sending it to us:

 

When sending us tracks as WAV/AIFF files, please follow the steps below.

 

1.  In your DAW, save your project as a separate file. Name it (for example) “My_song-FlashRecords_mix”. Do not overwrite the original, existing project file.

 

2.  Label the tracks (e.g. piano, main_vocal, kik, snare, main_lead, etc).

 

3.  Very important! Remove any equalization, compression, panning, limiters / finalizers, reverb, delay and other effects from each track. If there is a track with effects or automation that is important to the sound of the track, then you can leave these effects on.

Feel free to send two versions of any given track (dry/wet) at no extra charge. We can then decide which is best to use during mixing. If you’re not sure, get in contact with us.

 

4.  Please check all edit points throughout the song and make sure there aren't any noticeable clicks or clips.

 

5.  If you have tracks with virtual instruments, bounce them (to audio tracks). Before bouncing, review step N_3 again.

 

6.  Export each track to an individual file (WAV or AIFF).

Important! Make sure each track is exported from the beginning of the session (start at the zero point), even if that means there is blank space in the beginning of each track. This way, everything will line up correctly when we import the files into DAW. It is impossible for us to assemble a session that has audio tracks starting at different points.

 

Export tracks in the same resolution as it was recorded. Do not upsample or downsample. For example, if the session was recorded in 24bit 44.1Khz, export the tracks in 24bit 44.1Khz resolution.

 

Do not apply any noise shaping or ditireing to the tracks (if you’re not sure what that is, contact us).

 

7.  Please make sure that each file has a descriptive name (e.g. piano, main_vocal, kik, snare, synth_lead, etc).

 

8.  Create a text file with notes and  mix reference suggestion.

 

9.  After all the tracks are exported, add them to a folder, label the folder as the song name, and then compress the folder to a ZIP file. You can also include a rough mix and reference materials. A a rough mix can be an MP3 file.

 

10. Upload the files. (We will send you а link of a repository to which you can upload the files.)
