Maybe you’ve done your part as a performing artist, and now need help with the technical side so your audio sounds awesome. Hurt Mesa can mix, master, even record additional parts for you.
Mixing and Mastering, too
What is mixing? If you have separate audio tracks in a DAW like Ableton, Sonar, or Pro Tools, then you’re on your way to getting a musical balance. Compression, EQ, and reverb help to sculpt tracks so they sit well together. Processing techniques can vary depending on your style of music. In short, mixing is balancing the levels of each instrument and voice according to the musical genre.
What is mastering? Mastering begins with a great mix, and achieves optimal loudness, width, and EQ balance for the style of music. Mastered tracks are comparable to other tracks in the album and in the marketplace.
What is production? In addition to mixing and mastering, production can include the addition of instrumental tracks, harmonizing vocals, adding or subtracting orchestral, even changing the order of verses and choruses.
Production often requires more time and creativity than mixing, and mastering is the least likely to change the character of your project. The mixing process can add life and excitement to your project, but the best approach to mixing is to be tru to the artist's vision.
