F.A.Q.

What are mixing and mastering?

Audio Mixing and Mastering are two very important stages in the music production procedure. When the recordings of all individual tracks like vocals, guitars, bass, drums, synths etc. finish it is time to combine and glue all those sounds in a beautiful cohesive final result that finally will be heard in your audience playback devices.

 

In the mixing stage we process each individual track of the song or music score. Each instrument has its own sound characteristics and needs different approach from the other. In this stage we adjust the levels of each one and place them in the stereo field panning them accordingly. The more basic tools to apply in the mixing stage are equalizer, compressor and reverb. With equalizer we balance the sound in the frequency spectrum, with compressor we control the dynamics and with reverb we add space to the music. Other tools that we use are delay, chorus, saturators, flanger, phaser, distortions, exciters, limiters (compressors with very high ratio), de-essers (actually they are compressors with specific functionality) and many more. Proper gain staging is a critical step in the mixing procedure.  Mixing aiming to create a final stereo (most of the times) track ready for the mastering engineer.

 

In the mastering stage we process the song as an entirety and not every individual instrument as we did in mixing stage. The most important tools are compressors, equalizers and a limiter as last part of the effect chain. We could use some other tools like as spectral shapers, exciters, clippers and imagers. Target here is to take the final mix polish and enhance it, adjust the final levels of the whole song and finally prepare it accordingly for distribution. You may often see that it is called as “premaster” if it is going to be delivered on cd or vinyl.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I often listen about Integrated Loudness – what is it?

A crucial element of the final Master is the perceived loudness of the audio. It is a relatively new accurate metering standard of how human hearing perceives overall volume of the track.

Depending on how you will deliver your music different loudness standards exist in the industry. E.g. Spotify’s suggesting a target of about -14dB at the time of writing integrated Loudness and a True Peak of no more than -1,0 dB. In this all tracks are played through Spotify application are even in terms of loudness (so the listener do not level up or down the volume gain in each different song). Various platforms have its standards (in similar values with Spotify although).

Different are also the values if we will deliver the music physically on cd while mastering for vinyl needs some more things to consider.

A small chat about how you will deliver your music is critical to achieve the best possible result in technical terms.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Which genres do you mix and master?

We are mixing and mastering any kind of music. Most familiar with EDM and electronic music, ambient, cinematic and classical, pop, rock, indie and metal (all of sub-genres)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have more stems in my songs and some of them are more than 8 minutes length for mixing and mastering. What is the price in that case?

That won't be a problem. Please ask for a custom mixing or mastering offer. The same goes if you have more than 5 song for mixing and mastering.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is podcast post production?

Podcast post production is the procedure that turns your raw recordings to a final audio product - podcast for your audience. It contains stages like noise removal (plosives, mouth clicks, crackles and other), polishing the overall recording cutting unwanted frequencies and resulting to a cohesive flow in terms of audio level so your audience would not need to turn up or turn down their device volume if there were significant rises and falls of the level.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What are the animated audiograms?

Mainly to use them to Youtube or other social media platforms these are actually animated videos with a sound spectrum or wave graph that reacts and moves accordingly to the audio of the podcast giving a nice flow. Many podcasters today use them for promoting their episodes to social media. Your could upload your podcast episode or a sum

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What equipment do you use when editing a podcast?

We work mostly on Pro Tools and switch to Izotope RX7 for more complex audio editing and restoration like noise removal - hums, plosives, mouth clicks from the podcast recordings.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

What are the industry standards for podcast?

For podcast episodes it is important keeping a relatively stable volume level while additionally adjusting it in such way that the perceived loudness of the final audio for your audience will not be quieter or louder than professional standards. For podcast episodes it is about -16LUFS (-19LUFS for mono) integrated loudness.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Do you compose music themes for podcast episodes intros and outros?

We could compose custom music theme for your podcast series. Sound branding of your podcast is a part of its entire identity. The crucial part is to make the music fit exactly with your podcast topic. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you offer consulting services for podcast production preparation?

If you need to keep your energy for the actual podcast procedures (preparing the scripts and guests, organize the podcast schedules etc.) you could choose that kind of service and we will help you through an online meeting to set your equipment properly for your podcast recordings.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

What is audiobook post production?

Audiobook post production is the procedure that turns your narration recordings to a final audio product - audiobook for your audience. It contains stages like noise removal (plosives, mouth clicks, crackles and other), polishing the overall recording cutting unwanted frequencies and resulting to a cohesive flow in terms of audio level so your audience would not need to turn up or turn down their device volume if there were significant rises and falls of the level. The main audiobook platform ACX has some audio submission requirements that must be satisfied 100% so your audiobook would be delivered through the online retailers ACX work with.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
