MIXTAPE MIXING

​

Looking for a particular sound? I have been working with mixtape artist for over 25 years in all parts of the country.  Pick out what you need and I can give you that sound. 80’s, 90’s, 2000's or Modern. East coast, West coast, New York, LA, Dirty South, Snap Plus many many more. Send me a sample and I will give you that sound.

​

This is not a 4 to 20 hour mix such as my standard mixing. I will spend about an hour on each song and it will be of the same quality as all commercially mixed mixtape songs. I do not do any vocal pocketing, pitch correction or beat manipulation in any way.  What you send me is what I work with. A good reference for the sound of this service would be Waka or Lil Wayne. Don't expect gold if you send me dirt.  The quality of your project starts with you and BAD cannot be fixed regardless of what people say.

​

A mixtape consist of a single music track and multiple vocals.

​

$10.00 per track w/$25 setup fee (basic mastering is included)

$15.00 per song for mixtape mastering (I will make your song punchy and clean as long as you give me something that I can make punchy and clean))

$50.00 Beat Mixes

If vocal tracking is required you will be billed an additional $30.00 per hour. Billed in 15 minute increments.

​

Mastering is the finishing step in presenting your material with the sonic fidelity of the commercial releases you hear on your favorite CDs and radio stations. Most people confuse "mastering" with "mixing." They are two entirely different processes. Ask any mix engineer responsible for many of the hit records you've listened to and they will tell you that mastering is the necessary final step. All commercially released CDs are mastered. Even some demo projects are mastered. When sending your demos to labels, management or production companies for signing consideration, your music will sound more impressive once mastered.

​

When mastered, your material will have a cleaner, punchier sound that will sound good on many listening devices we use such as car stereos, home systems, small speaker systems, night clubs, I-pods, etc. Consistent volumes, balanced fade ins/outs, transition spacing between songs are part of the process.

​

In many cases, mastering can help improve the sound of material that was mixed by a less than experienced engineer. A number of producers/artists have home studios, etc. but lack the necessary equipment or "ears" to achieve the sonic fidelity to which listening audiences have become accustom. This is where mastering can save the day..

​

Make sure your mix is exactly the way you want it. I can work with the dynamics of the song but you need to be happy with the mix. There must not be ANY LIMITING on the final 2 track mix but slight compression is fine. I realize that most engineers prefer to mix with some compression on the stereo mix. If you do not know what this is then talk to the engineer that did the work. If he does not know what that is then call us. Your mix should be very very bouncy and it should NOT go into the RED ( above 0db ) at any point. Distortion in the overall mix is Bad.
