mixing & mastering
Mixing is putting everything you have recorded together to complete your song(s). This includes adding EQ and compression, volume adjustments, adding effects, editing flaws, pitch correction and so on. Think of mixing as putting the puzzle together, putting together the parts of what you have recorded, making sure everything hangs together right while also adding the finishing touches on things. When mixing is completed, you should be pleased with the way the song sounds and feel confident that you don't need to add anything else musically.

 Mastering is adding sparkle and shine to your music. In a very basic sense, when you master your album, you're making sure that song one doesn't blow out the speakers while song two is barely audible - in other words, you want the levels of the songs to be similar and you want a general sense of cohesiveness to your recording, It also add the finishing touches to the song to bring it to its highest poetntial, making as loud as possible without distorting and making the song sound big and strong while sounding wider and clearer to emerge you in its sound. No song should be without mastering!

We understand that recording a real drum kit in a professional studio can be a complicated and expensive process, and we know how much of a struggle it can be to come up with great sounding drum tracks. Therefore, we are happy to work with programmed drums – we are also always creating new drum samples, in order to have a continuous influx of new sounds ready for our future clients.
You may download our recording tutorial directly from our website, and all your questions will be answered!
We sure can! Let us know what kind of tone you’re looking for, and we will take care of the rest.
Definitely! However, we recommend that you also send us the DI tracks for each guitar, just in case you don’t like your tone in the final mix. This way we can still try different amps, and see which one sounds the best in the end.
We work on all types of music! We are excited to work with EVERY genre and sub-genres…and in any language!
Please Note: ISRC is NOT required to use our services.

The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is an international standard code for uniquely identifying sound recordings and music video recordings. The code was developed by the recording industry in conjunction with the ISO technical committee 46, subcommittee 9 (TC 46/SC 9), which codified the standard as ISO 3901 in 1986, and updated it in 2001.

An ISRC code identifies a particular recording, not the work (composition and lyrical content) itself. Therefore, different recordings, edits, and remixes of the same work should each have their own ISRC code. Works are identified by ISWC codes. Recordings remastered without significant audio-quality changes should retain their existing ISRC codes, but the threshold is left to the discretion of the record company.

The provision of ISRCs is overseen by appointed national ISRC agencies. These national ISRC agencies issue codes directly to the public and may also utilize authorized ISRC Managers to issue ISRCs. In the United States, the appointed agency is RIAA. ISRC codes can be obtained directly from RIAA for an administrative fee ($80 at time of this publication) or from a commercial ISRC manager.[4] Only in territories where there is no national ISRC agency does IFPI provide codes to users.
