STANDARD MIXING RATES FOR INDEPENDENT ARTISTS

I also offer a special rate for singer-songwriters who want to showcase each new song in its best light.

I will become the biggest fan of your song the moment I start.

I truly believe that it's not about my mix—it's all about your song.

When you want your music to grab the listener, you need a mix that instantly conveys your sound in order to pull the audience in and keep them engaged throughout the song. A quality mix keeps the listener focused on the music itself. In short, you want your finished song to sound like a record, not a demo.

While great music transcends all genres and tempos, I work mostly with songs that wanna rock. Whether you are looking for a quality mix for your current projects or a new mix of your old tracks, I would love the opportunity to work with you!

“I was concerned about the distance and not being able to mix together in the same room. Instead, Matt was able to quickly identify my style, making changes to get the sound I was looking for. Matt’s a musician and a music fan so communicating ideas was easy because he speaks our language.” -Bill Rieger

Great music always evokes an emotional response in the listener.

Whether the song tugs at your heartstrings, makes you tap your foot, nod your head to the beat, or pump your fist in the air—the emotion should always come through. This is not by luck or by magic; it is the end result of the hard work put in by the songwriter, musicians, producer, arranger, audio engineers and other talented people that care enough to deliver their very best.

"When you entrust your work to me, I promise to deliver my very best work to you."

It begins with a good song and a strong performance captured cleanly by your recording engineer or your own DIY setup. Some light editing for timing and tuning may be necessary but keep in mind there's only so much anyone can do with a poorly recorded performance after the fact. As your mix engineer, I will work with you objectively to enhance the very best qualities of the recorded performance while smoothing out anything that distracts from our mutual goal of allowing your audience to hear your work at its very best. 

Additional production during the mixing phase is not always a good thing, and a good song with an effective arrangement can keep the listener engaged on its own merit. While I will gladly offer my suggestions, I will never impose any stylistic changes or make drastic changes to your song unless we've discussed it first and agree that it helps the song. A big part of what makes your music unique is YOUR SOUND, not mine.

Your multi-track recordings will be mixed down to a stereo mix that translates well when played back on most speakers, headphones, car stereos and mono systems. The final mix will be provided to you in a standard, high-quality WAV file ready to be delivered to your mastering engineer.

Mastering for digital distribution is available as an additional service.
