FAQ

What are the differences between mixing and mastering?

The process of mixing and mastering can sometimes be confusing. But understanding their roles are important towards finding a studio to provide quality services.

Mixing is basically putting everything together that you have recorded complete your songs. Things like adding effects, adjusting levels, and shaping the sound are done during the mixing stage. Mixing is like putting the puzzle together. We make sure that every instrument and vocal sits right, and adding final touches to the song. When you receive your mixed songs, you should like how everything sounds and feel confident that you don’t need to add anything musically.

Mastering is adding polish and shine to your music. Simply put, when you master your songs, you’re making sure that all the songs sound even when playing the album through. You want a general sense of cohesiveness to your recording.

Why should I get my song mixed?

With the advent of audio production technology, more and more artists are taking mixing into their own hands. It’s great that artists are becoming more involved in the production process, but sometimes getting a professional mix is important.

Having a fresh set of ears can give a new outlook to a song you’ve been working on for a while. Not to mention, there’s nothing like a Pro192 touch on your mix.

Why should I get my song mastered?

Mastering makes your album sound cohesive and equal. We add the polish and shine to your music. Even if it’s just a single, we can make sure that the song is radio ready.

What is the process to get a song mixed or mastered?
