MIXING & ENHANCING YOUR TRACKS

Mixing is the technique of blending all of the individual tracks in a recording to create a version of the song that sounds as good as possible. This is called "the mix”. The process is comprised of:

  • Balancing the levels of the tracks that have been recorded & fine-tuning the sound of each instrument or voice using equalization (EQ)

  • “Panning” the tracks between speakers to create a stereo image

  • Adding reverb, compression, and other effects to enhance the original recording

MASTERING & FINALIZING YOUR SOUND

Mastering is the process of turning a song or collection of songs into a final master for manufacturing so that it translates well across systems: CD player, radio, computer, car stereo, phone, etc. The process involves:

  • Balancing the level and tonal balance (EQ) of songs

  • Controlling the dynamic range - how loud and quiet each section is, for the right musical balance of variety and power

  • Compressing, EQing, M/S Processing and Limiting so the song is polished
