Mixing is the process of balancing, adjusting, and blending various elements of an audio recording to create a harmonious and sonically pleasing final track. This involves the manipulation of individual audio tracks (stems) like vocals, instruments, and effects to create depth, dynamics, and a sense of space within the music.
Mastering, on the other hand, is the final step in audio post-production. It involves refining the mixed track, making fine adjustments to the audio to prepare it for distribution. This can include tasks like equalization, limiting, and compression to ensure the music sounds its best on all platforms and devices.
The Difference: Mixing is about creating balance among individual elements, whereas mastering is about ensuring that the final mixed track is polished and ready for public consumption.
Mixing and mastering are essential for bringing out the best in your musical creations. Skipping these steps is like serving a cake before it’s been frosted and decorated—it's not complete and not yet at its full potential.
Without proper mixing, your song could sound muddy, disjointed, or lackluster. Mastering ensures that your track sounds professional and meets industry standards, so it can compete with other commercial releases.
Stems, as referred to in our service packages, are the individual audio tracks that comprise your song in full. For example, the kick, the snare, and the lead vocal, are all examples of stems.
1. The stems for mixing (2 options below)
- If you like where your rough mix is headed, we would rather pick up where you left off. In this case:
- Send one set of “wet” stems (effects enabled) - 16, 24, or 32-bit WAV.
- Send one set of “dry” stems (effects disabled) - 16, 24, or 32-bit WAV.
- If we are mixing the song from scratch
- Only send “dry” stems (effects disabled) - 16, 24, or 32-bit WAV.
2. Your demo mix - this helps us hear the big picture before we zoom into the details.
- Even when sending “wet” stems, disable all non-creative effects on all mix/master buses (compression, eq, reverb, delay) before exporting. You can leave more creative/stylistic effects like flangers & choruses enabled.
- Be sure all tracks start at the very beginning of the song (the 0:00 mark).
