FAQs

If your question is not here contact me

What can I do to get the best mix possible?

When you request a quote I will ask to hear a rough mix of your song(s) and we’ll discuss any potential issues I’m hearing and any concerns you have about the recording.  After you upload tracks for mixing, if I’m hearing anything that I think is a problem area and I can’t fix it for some reason I’ll make recommendations on what I think is the best way to proceed.  That’s pretty rare actually. If you haven’t started recording yet and want some advice on guitar tones, bass tones, drum mic’ing, etc. please feel free to reach out to me.  I want you to get the best mix possible and it all starts with the recorded tracks.

What are your rates?

Every band, artist, and project is unique so please reach out and I can give you a quote. If you can include a song link or attach an mp3 so I can get a feel for your music that would be great. I charge per project, no hourly rates.

How long will it take to complete my project? Can you tell me more about the process?

I always strive to provide quick turnaround times.  Generally speaking, I’m spending a full day on each mix if not more.  When you request a quote, we will discuss your songs(s) and what your vision is for the project. I’ll also go into what I hear in your rough mix (if you have one) and what I’ll be doing to give you the best mix possible.  I’ll also be able to answer any questions you have about the process.

Where are you located?

I’m in Los Angeles, California. I work with clients worldwide remotely. Usually I do revisions and mix notes via email.

How do I deliver my tracks to you?

Delivering tracks to me is easy. I will send you a link for your own custom DropBox folder where you will drag and drop your files.

I will also send you a pdf that explains everything you need to know about how to prepare your tracks for mixing. It has the answers to many questions you may have regarding the process.

How do I pay you?

Payments are processed through PayPal which accepts credit cards as well. I require a 50% deposit before starting a project. The remaining 50% is due when you’ve approved the mix.  If you have an album or EP project you can pay as I complete each mix if that helps financially.

What DAW do you mix in? What if I recorded in a different program?

I mix in the latest version of Pro Tools Ultimate. It doesn’t matter which DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) you used to record your project, I can import the files and mix in Pro Tools.  I’ve mixed projects for clients who use Logic, Cubase, Studio One, Reaper, etc.  This is all explained in a track prep pdf guide I will send you when you request a quote.

Will you do a "Test Mix"?

No, I won’t. You can, however, Hear My Work.
