If your song has already been mixed and you feel it is nearly complete, then you may only need a Polish Mix to fine tune your song, instead of full mix. Polish mixing plus mastering gives us enough room to make any fine volume adjustments to individual tracks in your song prior to mastering your project, and doesn't cost as much as a full mix. No effects, or panning will be added or adjusted on any tracks, or to the master mix. Only volume control on individual tracks.
The reason for a possible remix: Mastering brings out different levels from different tracks. So adjustments will more than likely have to be done in the mix before mastering. It is not uncommon for a mix to be mixed and mastered multiple times before getting it close to being finished. So Polish Mixing is used to fine tune your mix.
Polish Mixing Rate:
* In House mixing: * $15 per song (when added to *Audio Mastering* services) * $20 per song (without mastering service)
* Correspondence: * $10 per hour (when added to Audio Mastering services) 1 hour min for Correspondence mixing. This, in the long run, may cost more (depending on how close the mix is) than it would by just sending us the tracks to polish. * $15 per hour (without mastering service)
There are 2 ways to do this: * You will need to prepare individual mix-downs for each of your songs. Mute all tracks, de-mute 1 track at a time, and render each individually with all volume levels set and effects added.
* We can Correspond with you via email and give you our thoughts on what should be adjusted in the mix, if you feel it would be quicker. Please keep in mind about "the reason for a possible remix." This method would require you to be available to remix and send back to us.
