Mixing you music - Album - EP - Demo
Mixing at 21seven
Online mixing services are widely available, as well as Edinburgh studios offering "per track", fixed-price mixing. While these are perfectly valid solutions, I take a very different approach. A personal one.
To me every project is totally different and depends on too many disparate elements to price it "per song". Besides, what "mixed" may mean to me may be completely different to you, and your aspirations and expectations should not be taken for granted.
The best thing is this: you come to see me, bring your files with you, we listen together and discuss different options, artistic choices, prices etc there and then. Completely obligation-free. Meeting in person it will also become clearer if we are on the same wavelength, which is pretty important if I am to work on your music.Please note that this is not a way of hiding being more expensive than other places: I am not! You will find my pricing very affordable and reasonable.
What is mixing?
After all the instruments and vocals are recorded, they are mixed.
Think of mixing as putting the puzzle together, assembling the parts you have recorded so that each one sits in its own space and can be clearly heard, but at the same time they form a whole together.
Mixing involves adjusting volumes of individual tracks, adjusting the stereo image, creating a sense of space and depth, equalizing, compressing, adding effects and final touches in order to bring your music to life.
Digital vs analogue
I offer both, but which one should you go for? Please see the dedicated "digital vs analogue" section in the FAQ page, here.
