The Complete 8 Step Process
Below you can read about the complete 8 step process that every song , no matter size or style, goes through when our engineers are tasked with the job of making your song sound great . Each step below is included with every mixing purchase at no additional cost.
1. Custom Pricing
Tip: You can use our form to price your entire project before purchasing – Here
We wanted to make pricing as fair as possible. There are many different songs and song types. Each song requires different workloads. Some songs have 100 tracks and some songs may have 10 total tracks. (What Are Tracks?) We wanted our customers to be able to tailor their cost to exactly what their song needs, per song.
Our pricing is based on the size of your song. In other words, your track count determines the cost of your song. A song with 10 tracks is priced differently than a song with 100 tracks. But, what’s great about our service is that no matter what size your song is, it will always receive complete A – Z treatment. You can read more about included treatments below.
When you’re ready to purchase, you will be directed to our “purchase form”. This form allows you to select every detail about your song(s) and select which options you’d like to include with each specific song if you happen to be purchasing more than one. With this, you’ll be able to tailor your project to fit your budget.
As soon as your song files come into our inbox, we download and setup the session. From there, we go through each individual kick, snare, guitar, vocal, etc.. and clean the clicks, pops, hums, and anything else that isn’t suppose to be there!
In this stage we will start to determine if there are any tracks we’d like you to resend or even in some cases re-record. We want to make sure everything we have will contribute to making your song sound great, not worse.
3. Timing Corrections
This is where the song really starts to come together, especially songs that were recorded with a full band playing together. First, all the drums are aligned. This sets the base foundation for the rest of the song. All other instruments and vocals are then aligned into the drums. If your song doesn’t have any drums, the most important element will be Time Corrected first and then used as the foundation for everything else.
This can make for a pretty dramatic difference with Before and After at this stage. It can take a song from amateur sounding to sounding professionally performed.
