Mixing and Mastering is discussed for each individual project.

Mixing can be done with or without the musicians present, depending on your personal preference.

Mastering

Click above to hear a clear before and after representation of the mastering process.

Mastering is the process of finalising your music; adding volume, kick and sparkle ready for release and broadcast. A mastered track will compare favourably to commercial CDs in terms of volume and EQ. Unmastered music will sound quiet, limp and unfinished in comparison. We therefore strongly recommend you have your music mastered with us.

Mastering is done separately (usually within a few weeks) and is charged “by the song”.

Our usual mastering rate is between £50 and £75 per song, dependant mostly on the complexity of the song. Mastering fees are always best discussed case by case.

We are hugely competitive with mastering as we perform this “in house”. Our mastering take up rate is nigh on 100%, and for good reason!
