Audio Mixing is a process of blending, balancing, controlling dynamics and adding effects to create a final stereo mix that best represents your sound. In today’s world, online audio mixing got a whole lot easier thanks to the Internet. No matter where you are in the world, we can start mixing your project by pushing and pulling files with our secure file management service. We accomplish all of our audio mixing tasks and approvals right over the Internet.

Recent Mixing Example...

Austin, TX band “Law By The Gun” recently recorded an album project and brought it to me for mastering.  The mixes were not very good. Long story short, they ended up asking me to remix and then remaster the entire 12 song album. Below are example audio files of their original mix, the mix done by AudioIntegrity and then the final mastering. This is a good representation of how we can improve a mix and make it sound much better.

“Bar” – Original Mix – Law By The Gun

“Bar” – AudioIntegrity Mix – Law By The Gun

“Bar” – Mastered Mix – Law By The Gun

Our Audio Mixing Process...

Delivery of Multi-track Files

​First step in the online audio mixing process is to deliver the multi-track files with any track notes. Please make sure you’ve bounced your final versions into a single standalone file (vocal comps, leads etc). We prefer individual .wav files for each final track version (per song). This allows us to be portable and not be tied to a specific mix platform (like Logic, ProTools etc). We want the raw audio at native resolution.

Our Audio Mixing Process

​Once the files have been received the mix will be scheduled. The first mix is always most critical as it sets the tone. This sets overall parameters of how we want the top end to sound or low end sound, vocal placement etc. It’ll of course vary depending upon key, tempo, instrumentation, song arrangement as no one song will be identical. It gives us guidelines though. So, as we move through the first mix we’ll get it to a point that sounds presentable for feedback. A test .wav file will be provided for listening and critique. This may take several revisions. This is your opportunity to say more kick, less snare, more vocal, less reverb or whatever you hear needs changing. Upon approval we’ll then work towards the next song repeating the process and so forth.

Deliver Mixes for Approval in .WAV Format

​All final mixes are delivered in stereo .WAV format at the native resolution including copies at 16bit/44.1KHz. We can also do alternate mix versions for various uses. Such as vocal up versions, no lead vocals, music tracks, split tracks and more. Let us know what you need and we’ll make it happen.

Our base platform for mixing is a Mac Pro (Windows 7 or OSX via Parallels) running ProTools, Logic or Sequoia with UAD External DSP. We use quality plugins from….

  • Waves

  • Algorthimix

What Our Clients Say...

Jeff has bionic ears, he hears things in a mix that I didn't know were there. He has not only elevated ALL of my mixes to new heights but he also has made some very needed suggestions along the way that has made my album really standout and shine. I've worked with many masterers throughout my 20 year career from LA to New York and Jeff by far is the best. And he cares.

We contacted Audio Integrity for a Full Length Mastering project on our 10 song album. Jeff did an amazing job communicating and working with us from start to finish. The final product turned out better than we could have hoped for.. He was the first person to respond out of 10 possible companies. After getting a sample back from each of the 10 companies we compared them and Jeff was our top choice.
