So you’ve finished up recording your music and you're wanting to get your music mixed my a professional? Here's 5 things you need to know before sending it off to them...
As a mix engineer myself in this day and age, a lot of sessions get sent over to me online. As a result, I have had numerous sessions from artists where there have been a few phone calls, emails and social media messages back and forth trying to get to a point where I can start to do the job for the client.
It will come as no surprise to some of you that time is money in this industry. If you can save the professional you have hired to mix your tracks hours of time, it will be more cost effective for you in the long run on the project and ultimately will make the process much smoother for both parties.
If you are sending your tracks to someone to get them mixed, they want to do just that, mixing. The last thing the mixer wants to be doing is wasting hours of time arranging the session in to something that makes sense and working things out in terms of tempos, where things need to go, editing etc.
The following 5 steps will help you save a lot of time, money and headaches when you are ready to send your tracks to a professional mix engineer.
