AUDIO MULTITRACK AND/OR STEM EDITING & MIXING
$100 per song <=5 min
Up to 8 stems per song (more stems gives more control over the sound).
8-16 stems per song, is billed at our full mixing rate ($200/song)
3 free revisions. Well thought of, not generalised.
The essential character of your existing mix is retained.
Things Generally Not Included
While it’s ultimately up to the discretion of your engineer, it’s best to accomplish the following before you send your stems, unless you’ve paid for full mixing or 8+ stems (same price as full mixing):
Automation (volume rides, EQ changes from section-to-section, delay throws, etc.)
Editing (although you’re welcome to request a fade-out at the end as part of the mastering process)
Any non-subtle effect such as distortion, heavy echo/reverb, etc.
Note about delays/reverbs: If you’re not happy with the ambience you already have, you’re welcome to bypass those effects and let us know you want them, but keep in mind that we can only reach a certain level of detail with 7 stems. For example, if you send us an “all vocals dry” stem and ask for echo, we can’t make the background vocals wetter than the lead vocal. They will all have the same echo setting.
