Mixing & Mastering Explained
Mixing is the process of putting multiple layers of audio together to make one final track, or to musically modify an existing track. When it comes to your songs, this means using compression, equalization, balance, filters, effects and audio augmentation to modify your vocals to meet the industry standard.
Mastering means putting the extra polish on your project in preparation on for replication factory requirments or record label security concerns. Mastering is adding sparkle & shine to your music. It gives your project that extra "umph".
Why Does My Project Need Mixing & Mastering?
A Professional Sound: Mixing & Mastering gives your music the professional commercial quality necessary to compete nationally and globally. It doesn't matter if your audio is planned for radio, CD/cassette duplication, or publishing to the internet, it must be mixed & mastered to reach its potential and take full advantage of the media in which it is to be released.
A Fresh Pair Of Ears: After working on music for years, mixing & mastering engineers develop an accurate sense of audio & musical knowledge that is key to creating a successful mix. It is also a huge benefit that the audio engineer working on your project wasn't there when you recorded your songs. Hearing your songs for the first time, a fresh pair of ears can offer truly objective advice and help.
