The process of mixing together all the layers/stems of a track into a dynamic and well rounded mix, ready for mastering. Mixing involves using equalization, dynamics processing, and a multitude of creative processes such as reverbs and delays. This is the most important stage of getting the track to sound rich and powerful.
The process of Mastering takes a collection of finished mixes and preparing them for distribution by ensuring that all tracks are at a consistent and coherent level and tone. This mainly involves subtle equalization and dynamics manipulation. Think of it like a good grating of parmesan on an already flavoursome bowl of pasta.
We specialise in creating vivid and iconic album artwork. We also specialise in clean and engaging typographic layouts and a multitude of 2D design disciplines.
Most services are charged at £30 per hour. Some services such as mastering are based on flat rates of £20 per track or £180 for a full project. We pride ourselves on efficiency and value for money and always try to keep costs down.
