It all starts with your music. If the sonics don’t stand up and punch you in the face; If the timbre and tones don’t inspire with the same depth and richness of “big name” productions, then you’re not doing your music justice. For your music to be on equal footing with other artists, you need to make sure your production is top-notch. Even with home studios being more powerful than they ever have been, it’s still very difficult to achieve a professional mix! This is because it can take years, if not decades to acquire the skills necessary to achieve a “real album” sound. To be honest, you still need top-notch performances, instruments, and front-end (mics, press, converters) to get that true “major label” sound. But, assuming you’ve done your best, we can take you the rest of the way to a professional mix and master.
Our philosophy is that the artist should concentrate on supplying the best performance possible, and then let a qualified engineer mix and master it with an objective ear. We’ve got a huge selection of the best plug-ins available, as well as an acoustically treated mix room, analog outboard gear, good monitors, and two decades of engineering experience. Send us your raw multi-track .wav or .aif files (all MUST be bounced/rendered/exported as full-length tracks with the same starting point), and we’ll mix, then master your track(s) with a modern, professional approach. Normal rates apply to songs six minutes or less in length, with 24 tracks or less. Up to two (2) revisions [recalls] of the final mix/master are allowed. Songs with larger track counts and extra recalls can also be mixed for an extra fee.
– A follow-up email with detailed instructions will be sent
– All files sent to be remixed must be continuous, unbroken stem files with the same start point.
– Please email song file(s) organized by song and zipped (WAV file preferably, but can be an MP3)
– File Sharing sites such as Mediafire.com and Box.net are recommended
When you’re presenting your music to blogs, labels, and others you’ve got to put you best foot forward. Why not do something a bit more original? Send us some of your existing photos, and we’ll hook it up! We might not be able to do everything graphic related (hey, we’re a recording studio over here!), but we can certainly give you something that looks pro and fits your vibe. Choose from the Mixtape covers show above, and email about flyer options.
– We will send a follow-up email with detailed instructions
– Each Design takes 5-8 Days after processing
Give us your information + accomplishments and we’ll give you back a clearly written, impressive biography. We find that 1/2 page is great for cover letters, one sheets, and emails. More than that, and press types will essentially TL;DR… so we’ll keep your bio concise, easy to read, and reflective of your art and accomplishments. Below is an example of a Wikipedia entry, which is shorter, less exciting, and formatted differently than the 1/2 page bio we’ll write for you.
