The multitrack recordings will be transferred to our studio computers after which the mixdown process can start. At first the right tracks per song will be assembled, cleaned up and when necessary composed from different takes for an optimal result. Next is balancing the track contents both in level and frequency in order to create a consistent and true sound image.
The goal is to honour the role of each instrument or voice in the sound image in such a way that the the song / composition is brings its message across with maximum impact.
De first mixdown of each song will be jointly listened to and judged against your expectations. Corrections will be made based on the feedback given further down the road until we all agree on the final mix.
When all the albumsongs / compositions have been finished, they will be transferred to the mastering process. During mastering the songs will be balanced in level, frequency, key etc. in order to create a consistent feel and flow of the album.
Next to that specific requirements for CD or online publishing will be met, resulting in a specific master per chosen release medium, meaning there will be a different master each for Spotify, iTunes or CD manufacturing.
