What is the difference between online mixing and mastering?

In simple terms of importance, I would say mixing is 90% and audio mastering makes up the remaining 10%. I refer to audio mastering as the icing on the cake. Audio mixing is the most important step, where I add EQ, compression, gate, reverb, delay, do beat drops, glitch effect, pitch correction, etc. Professional music mixing is the process where we take all of your sounds and instruments recorded and blend them to perfection. When the mixing and mastering services are completed, you will be blown away with how your finished product sounds musically.

Mastering on the other hand still involves compression, EQ, imaging, and limiting. Our music mastering is done to the final mix, adding the BIG sound and polish to bring your music to a radio-ready level. Mastering also allows helping the album sound unified. When we complete the mastering of your song, it will have the shine and balance as what you hear on today’s top 40 charts.

All of the music mastering services are done by the owner/audio engineer/producer Mack Geary, with over 16 years experience. This control room is an acoustically treated studio equipped with high-end analog and digital audio equipment. We assure you nothing but the best, balanced sound, booming low end, and a full dynamic range. 

Can I have the final files & stems after the mixing is completed?

Yes, you will receive all files associated with the project including vocals, stems, beats, SFX, etc.  You will also receive a google drive link with full access to the project(s) backup folder 24/7.  If you need anything else specific regarding the files just let us know.

Why should I have my audio mastered? 

Audio mastering is the last step in getting your music to its maximum potential. This step allows your music to compete with other professional/major label songs on a national and global stage. Whether you plan to release your music on the radio, CD, Cassette, DVD, Spotify, Apple Music, Sound Cloud, or publishing anywhere on the web, audio mastering is a necessary step and a vital part of musical success. 

How should I send my files for mixing and mastering services?

First, make sure all tracks in your mixer board are set to 0db(100%), no panning, and turn off all plugins/effects. Then go to wetransfer.com, and upload your Pro Tools session or compressed zip folder containing all audio stems. Enter your email address and use mackgmusic@google.com as the recipient. Press send and this step is complete, your engineer will handle the rest. 

What will I receive? 

Once your project is completed, you will be sent a 24bit high-quality .WAV and MP3 file. Stems and a copy of the session are available in your Google Drive folder.  Every mix and master session includes a plethora of compression, equalization, peak limiting, dynamic expansion, reverb, ambiance addition, stereo widening, noise reduction, loudness, bass enhancement, maximizing, hiss elimination, click cleanups, and much more.

How do I export and send my stems for Mixing and Mastering?

Please remove all effects and plugins when exporting vocal stems for mixing. Vocals must be dry mono audio files, with no effects, panning, or plugins.  If you are submitting instrumentation stems we ask that you send all files in stereo and keep the levels and effects as is. Please do not process any drastic compression or equalization that may cause distortion and clipping, make sure to label and name your stems accordingly to avoid any delays. 

For the Bit Depth/Rate select 16 or 24. Only select the bit rate your original recording was completed in or lower. Keep in mind, when choosing a higher bitrate than your recording this will corrupt the file. If you are using pro tools please send the session and not the stems.
