Mixing

So you have come this far and your creative duties as a musician are complete. You have music in hand that deserves an audience, yet you feel that the technical standard of the production quality is not doing your work the justice it requires. No piece of music should ever be compromised

due to such technical limitations. The mixdown on any recording is the key factor that will define the difference between a demo recording and a striking professional release. Enter the mix engineer, whose fresh ears and expertise will transform your musical content into a full-bodied recording, breathing with life and magic.

At Cocomelo Audio, we believe that every piece of music deserves this opportunity. Whether your recordings have been created with the largest sound-systems, home hi-fi, or radio in mind, we will sculpt the audio content of your music as is most befitting the medium. Over 15 years of hi-end recording experience will ensure your music is placed in learned and dedicated hands.

Whether you require all channels of your audio mixed from scratch or you whether the track would be best mixed from stems, we will treat your music as if it were our own and return to you a master that stands out of the crowd in today’s competitive climate.

Revisions and Turnaround

Included in the price, Cocomelo Audio will provide one evaluation version for feedback from the Client after which any requested ammendents will be made. Cocomelo Audio will then provide one further demo for evaluation by the Client. Final amendments will be made in response to the Client’s secondary feedback before delivering the final Master.

Should any further amendments be required there will be an additional charge of £30 per revision.

Upon receipt of the project files, the Master will be delivered to the client within 21 days of confirmation from Cocomelo Audio that all files are opening and operating correctly. Should there be technical problems prior to the Mixdown being commenced then the delivery date will be 21 days after confirmation that all audio files are in order. Should Cocomelo anticipate the turnaround taking longer than 21 days, the Client will be notified of a delivery date for approval prior to the project’s commencement.
