MIXING & MASTERING

 MIXING & MASTERING ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE. 

We are experienced in all genres. By employing the latest in hardware, outboard gear, software, and digital plug-ins our sound engineers aim to mix & master your song until it’s flawless, while always keeping your original vision in mind. 

The tools are only one component of the formula. Along with the cutting-edge technology we employ, we have a strict adherence to fundamental and technical engineering principles.

Our premium standard: every engineer at PSS mixes client work as if they were working on their own intimate creation.

 

Whether you recorded the material with us, at another studio, or by yourself we can mix it. Clients can provide us with the audio file track outs and your Prolific Sounds Solutions engineer can mix in-studio, live over the internet with the client, or client-unattended.

Drop your email to apply for a free test master or mix sample of your track. Prolific Sound Solutions is 100% confident we can take your song to the next level. We'll mix or master a 30-second sample of your song for you to get a feel for what we're all about & our proficiency in the industry.

During MIXING, your sound engineer will work to polish and bring out the best qualities within each element of your song.
We carefully and thoughtfully add warmth and maximize loudness.
We push for high-end clarity and remove noise or unwanted artifacts. We employ arrangement changes and fx that complement your style. We create and incorporate added production elements based on the client’s request. 

After mixing, we MASTER the song to ensure it remains competitive in the current media release landscape.
This includes ensuring balanced and “release-ready” quality, loudness measurements and adherence to digital platform standards, meta data, and file naming conventions.
When mastering an album, we make sure there is a constant from start to finish regarding volume and acoustic style/texture.

MIXING is the first step to enhancing your superior sound. It involves adjusting all the individual instruments used to create a balance. Audio engineers are balancing the
 

VOLUME
DYNAMICS
  FREQUENCIES
   SPATIAL PLACEMENT 

 

This just means engineers are editing and adding instruments in the background to not overpower or underwhelm. You want listeners to hear everything your song has to offer but at the right volume. Sounds easy? Think again. Audio engineers are tasked with tweaking, manipulating, and applying a diverse set of tools (EQ, compression, saturation, reverb, delay, phasers, stereo wideners, automation, and so much more) to bring your track to life. The mix makes up 80% of your song while the other 20% comes from the master.

 

MASTERING only begins when the mix is done. It’s all about adding the finishing touches to your track to enhance the quality of your mix. Audio engineers are working to
