MIXING YOUR SESSIONMany clients think that recording is the be all and end all of their session, but they should not overlook the importance and value that spending time on mixing their recordings can bring.
As a rule of thumb that holds good over many years of recording for different bands / acts, you should allow about one hour per running minute to adequately mix your track.
Things that can be done within your mix may include:-
- Correcting arrangement issues
- Adding vocal effects
- Pitch Correction
- Drum sound replacement
- Balancing instruments
- Balancing frequencies
- Adjusting volumes
- Adjusting timings
- Removing undesirable artifacts (pops, clicks, breaths etc)
