FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions regarding our online mixing and mastering services!

Are you really as good at music mixing as your website states?

Vinny has not achieved 30 times platinum by luck. With over 19 years experience Vinny’ has heard and worked on it all, from mixing songs online, to live shows at the Staples Center. We are not only one of the most fairly priced online mixing and mastering companies, we are by far one of the best song mixers and highly qualified. 

What is the difference between online mixing and mastering?

In simple terms of importance I would say mixing is 90% and audio mastering makes up the remaining 10%. I refer to audio mastering as the icing on the cake. Audio mixing is the most important step, where I add EQ, compress, gate, add effects, do beat drops, pitch correction, reverb, delays etc. Professional music mixing is the process where we take all of your sounds and instruments recorded and blend them to perfection. When the song mixing and mastering services are completed you will be blown away with how your finished product sounds musically. 

Mastering on the other had still involves compression, eq, and limiting. Our online music mastering is done to the final mix, adding the BIG sound and polish to bring your music to a radio ready level. Mastering also allows to to help the album sound unified. When you send us your audio for our mastering services, your song will have the shine and balance as what you hear on today’s top 40 charts. All of our music mastering services are done by our world renowned audio engineer Vinny DeLeon, fine tuned in the House of Hits Recroding Studio A room. This “A room” is an acoustically treated mastering studio equipped with high end analog and digital audio equipment. We assure you nothing but the best, balanced sound, booming low end and a full dynamic range.

How do I export and send my stems for Mixing and Mastering?

Please remove all effects and plug ins when exporting vocal stems for mixing. Vocals must be dry mono audio files, with no effects, panning or plug ins.  If you are submitting instrumentation stems we ask that you send all files in stereo and keep the levels and effects as is. Please do not process any drastic compression or equalization that may cause distortion and clipping, make sure to label and name your stems accordingly to avoid any delays. 

For the Bit Depth/Rate select 16 or 24. Only select the bit rate your original recording was completed in or lower. Keep in mind, when choosing a higher bit rate than your recording this will corrupt the file. If you are using pro tools please send the session and not the stems.
