MIXING: Call for a Quote
Mixing and producing songs to their end point involves every part of the studio - from processing using analogue and digital equipment, to getting a good level balance. Desk mixes can add that extra cohesive quality that in the box mixes struggle with, and the outboard effects such as the original EMT plate and Space Echo are a bonus.
Attended sessions are at the normal studio rates. For online only mixing please check here
Paul Pascoe has mixed the sound for several independent films over the last few years. We can work with a range of budgets and have Adobe CC so we can flip between sound and video edits easily. Call us for a quote or to discuss requirements.
MASTERING: see below for pricing
We've mastered a huge range of projects from albums, singles, EPs, feature films to voice overs. Let us give you a quote and discuss finalising your project. We can create CD masters, DDP files, add ISRC and other metadata, and for broadcast we can help set appropriate output levels and maintaining a healthy dynamic range. We're happy to discuss your preferences whether its for a more contemporary increased dynamic range or louder compressed masters. This kind of mastering is £35 per song.
We can premaster your material prior to vinyl cutting (which we don't do) but we advise that digital masters have some different level, stereo and sibilance requirements to vinyl cuts so we like to produce 2 different masters which we can do at £40 per song.
We offer a special mastering rate for our recording clients at £30 per song.
