Services: Mixing, Mastering, Editing, Arranging, Producer, Studio
MixingWe mix ITB using Pro-tools or in Logic X. Alternatively we use a Harrison 32:48 for analogue mixes or for summing. For mixing we charge an hourly rate and a single song usually takes between two to four hours (inc 3 revisions) depending on it's complexity and source material
MasteringWe master ITB using Ozone, Sonnox, Waves and Fabfilter OR in analogue via a stereo linked matched pair of Avalon 737's. We provide DDP images, hi-res WAV's and MP3/AAC as production parts.
EditingWe edit with PT or Logic using beat detective/flex time and then address vocal alignment with Revoice and pitching issues with Melodyne (PT) or Flex Pitch (Logic). We use RX5 for noise/click/hum removal. Happy to work on any material for editing.
As a general guide it takes 2-3 hours to edit, tighten, clean and tune a multitrack of Drums/Bass/Guitars/Vox & BV's (dependent on the source material)
ArrangingIn addition to scoring for string, brass & woodwind orchestration we can provide an honest assessment of the song's current arrangement and advise on any constructive changes as well as tastefully adding drums/bass/guitars/keys/b vox where necessary and supplying professional session players to realise the parts.
