What Is Mixing??
Mixing is the process after a song is tracked or recorded of blending all the individual tracks in a recording to create a final version of the song that sounds as good as possible – the “mix”.
The process can include:
Balancing the levels of the tracks that have been recorded
Fine-tuning the sound of each instrument or voice usingequalisation (EQ)
“Panning” the tracks between speakers to create a stereo image
Tuning Vocals to make sure the singer is in "key" with the song
Adding reverb, delay, compression, and other effects to enhance the original recording
Mixing often also includes a good deal of editing – choosing the best bits of every take of a song (which we call "comping", and sometimes even building musical elements from scratch. Sometimes there is so much editing involved it forms a separate stage in between tracking and mixing.
A song is only as good as its Mix!!

What Is Mastering??
- Mastering is where we achieve the "Volume" and "Loudness" in your song(s).
- Ever wondered why your music sounds flat and low in comparison to your favorite artist or a Major Released song?
- Ever wondered why you have to adjust the volume of each of your songs because they aren't all playing at the same optimal volume?
It's because all "Major" releases go through the recording>Mixing>Mastering process.
Mastering is also were the final EQ, Limiting and compression is added to your song that it "Translates Well" which means that-It sounds good an whatever device you play it in, whether it's your ipod, car stereo, phone, home stereo, T.V., tablet The Club or on The Radio!!!
Mastering is a vital step that shouldn't be skipped if you want the have your song at its best
Mastering is also the process of turning a collection of songs into an album (or single, or playlist, or podcast…) and combining them to create a final master for manufacturing.
A great mix shines in conjunction with a great Master on it.

How Can You Get Your Music Discovered?
Are you a musician or artist but not sure how to get your act noticed? Here is our advice on getting discovered.
Top tips on being discovered
• Register your band for as many websites as possible, for example Soundcloud, Facebook, Last.fm, Tumblr, Flickr, and Twitter.
• Get on new websites as soon as they launch. By being aware of what websites have started up and are becoming popular, you will have an advantage in getting your music heard to new audiences.
• Get your music out there. Leave comments on blogs, forums and other social networking sites, however do not spam! This will lose you credibility and will potentially annoy people.
• Ask for feedback from people, but don’t get angry if the reaction is negative. Your never going to appeal to everyone.
Build a buzz around your music
Gigging or doing shows regularly will get you seen and heard, but getting your demo out and posting music online will help too.
It’s now more important than ever to be creative with your music, and this will help you stand out from the crowd. It’s a competitive market so think how you can get your music noticed. Getting your music professionally recorded, mixed and mastered will set you apart from the rest who half step.
Remember that conquering your local scene should be your first port of call. Become the best known band in your area. Once this happens, people within the music industry will travel to see you.
Make contacts with as many people within your local music scene as possible. This includes gig promoters, DJs, venue owners, independent music shop owners, and music bloggers.
Want your music to be played on the radio?
Getting played on the radio is a tough task. It’s a very competitive market to break into and you are battling against big international artists, who radio stations are more likely to play due to their popularity. However, don’t forget that they had to start somewhere too!
The most popular radio station will play established artists during the day, however there are still shows, particularly at night, where less heard or unsigned artists can be played.
However, getting played on regional, local, student and online radio should also be a priority.
It is important to remember that DJs and producers get sent hundreds of records every week, so don’t be too disheartened if you don’t receive a reply straight away!
If you are sending a CD to a radio producer:
• Only put 2 or 3 of your best tracks on it.
• Print the track listing and add some basic information about your band, linking to your Sound Cloud account.
• Put a label on your CD and make it as professional looking as possible.
• Don’t give too much information. They won't have the time to read lot's so try to be short and sweet.
Do these things and you will definitely have an advantage and a good starting point. Don't forget to never stop learning and trying new things and to hire out or barter the other jobs you need in making your career a MAJOR SUCCESS!! GOOD LUCK!!
