I am working a session that we'll probably wrap up within a week or so, we are gonna finally start mixing tonight. The project was done in Pro Tools using a digi001 and an adat as additional i/o. I have slapped la-2a and 1176 plugs on bass guitar and the lead vocal. main mix will not be compressed. I have eq'd nothing at all but may when we mix. I tracked instruments with little compression using one of those new alesis dual stero compressors. Anyways... the project still has dynamics. I explained to the client that mastering is as neccesary as mixing itself. I said that songs will sound consistant from one to another and be the same volume. he now understands how important mastering is. Jackson Sound in Denver here can master before they cut the cd's but not sure about the price yet. last I talked with them they actually transfered to 1/4 inch tape for obvious reasons. I suppose they do a pretty good job although i havent heard any before and after stuff. I see no reason to have to keep this part of the project in Denver so..... who wants to master this and for how much? i imagine I would send via FTP or mail... the 24 bit 44.1k files. Whats this gonna cost the client? 10 songs.. country music, drums, bass, guitar, steel, fiddle, vox, and backups. I need some outside ears to clean this up. I mixed using ns-10's with a sub so it shouldnt be too bad. any ideas or suggestions?
