Cheap Audio Mixing And Mastering Service Gear List

 

Mixing And Mastering Service Gear

Getting your project sounding its best starts with the studio.  This is why I spent so much time making it acoustically solid, and I loaded it with top of the line gear.  All cables, effects processors, monitors, my audio interface, my i7 computer and software are world-class.  The combination of a great studio design and premium gear gives me an amazing listening environment, and the ability to deliver commercial radio quality results.  And I will!

 

I use a combination analog and digital equipment which includes -

  • Pro tools
  • Manley
  • Midas
  • Motu
  • TC Electronics
  • SSL
  • UAD
  • Waves
  • Genelec
  • Yamaha
  • Waves
  • AKG

But remember, you can have the best studio and equipment ever made, but if it’s in the hands of a poor inexperienced sound engineer, the gear is completely useless.  Your project results will be garbage, regardless of the gear used.  He doesn’t know how to use it!

Let me show you the results a pro sound engineer using top studio gear can achieve with your music.  Let’s take your project to the next level this week!

 

About Me - Brett Anderson

Hi, I’m Brett Anderson, owner of Cheap Audio Mastering, located in Los Angeles, California.  Open since 2012.

I started my career in 2002 working with John Rogers at JR mastering.  In 2012, I opened my own mixing and mastering studio in Southern California.  Since the start of my career, I've mastered over 15,000 songs in every style of music, podcasts and audio books.  I’ve worked with several Billboard chart toppers, Grammy winners and nominees. 


Be confident, that if you work with me, you’ll be working with a highly experienced sound engineer that not only pays close attention to detail but is here to answer any questions you might have, big or small.  I’m the only sound engineer at my studio, and we will work together to achieve a professional radio ready sound for your project.  That includes mixing advice to correct your mix, if needed (this applies to audio mastering clients).  


Let ME do an AMAZING job for you, at a VERY affordable price.  I'm very good at what I do, and I can’t wait to start working with you!

 

My Mixing Service Process

All songs are professionally mixed (effects, EQ, panning, track levels, compression, etc) according their genre.  I do everything that needs to be done in the mixing process.  There’s no need to add effects to your tracks unless there’s an effect you 100% know you want to use (because I can’t remove it later).  Note - Electric guitar tracks are the exception.  Clients always add their favorite guitar effects.  Also, adding Autotune or Melodyne to a vocal track is also common.  I offer manual vocal pitch correction for an extra charge.

Your songs will be mixed so they have professional clarity, space, clean vocals, and proper brightness and bass for your genre.  Different effects are artistically used within each segment of your songs to keep them interesting, just like pro mixes on the radio.  I do not use one vocal effect for the entire song, like most online sound engineers do.

I charge only $4/stem for mixing.  Once the mix/master is finished, just let me know of any preference adjustments like vocals a little louder, bring the synth down a bit, etc.  Note - Most clients request only one revision with a handful of adjustments.  You get three revisions sets free.  After that it’s only $5 each set.

I work with you one-on-one and we get your project sounding right.  You won’t be disappointed.  Note - If you have a large project, we can always start with only one song. 

 

My Mastering Service Process

My Mastering Service ProcessAudio mastering is the final series of effects processes that brings your mix as close as possible to a commercial radio quality song.  Of course “how close” depends on the mix you submit.  Note - If there’s a major problem with your mix, I will let you know how to fix it, so we can get the best mastering results possible.

First, I evaluate your songs.  Then I determine which processes (and how much) need to be applied to each song.  After this process, your finished masters will be as close as possible industry standard quality, ready for official release to the world!  

Based on your style of music, your songs have to be mastered so they have the proper amount of bass volume & thickness, brightness, the right amount of compression to smooth out the song (without compromising its integrity), nice stereo width, of course proper EQ and spectral enhancing for added clarity, separation and punch, and your overall volume (without distortion) has to be comparable to commercial songs within the same genre.  When someone plays your songs after hearing a commercial song, the overall volumes absolutely MUST be the same.  A few DBs too low and it will be painfully obvious to the listener that it’s an amateur project.

There are currently over 10,000 sound engineers online, most with only a couple years of experience.  Honestly, it took me about 2,000 clients before I got good really good at audio mastering.  80% of the sound engineers online haven’t even worked with 500 clients yet, many under 100!  Are you going to trust your songs (that might have taken you a year or more to create) with someone just barely learning the ropes?  What kind of results do you think you’re going to get?  

All I’m saying is I have the experience and will personally work with you to get your music project sounding great, giving it the potential become a #1 hit!  I can do it, and we WILL!  
I charge only $15/song for audio mastering.  If you need a preference adjustment or would like to upload a new mix for mastering, you get two free.  After that it’s only $5 each.

Note - Your songs are mastered by me, one by one, no presets.  Like every song on the radio was mastered.  You can’t get the same quality by having your entire CD mastered for only $9 by an auto preset mastering site.  Each song a client submits from their CD has subtle (and sometimes big) differences.  Preset software can’t adjust from song to song and make your CD sound consistent.  That’s why it’s only $9!  Let me give your entire CD project that professional flow from song to song.  Your music deserves it!

 

At only $15 per song my rates are MUCH cheaper than mixing and mastering services like Sage Audio, Audio Mixing Mastering, Abbey Road, Fiverr Audio Mastering, Mike's Mix And Master, Major Mixing, JR Mastering, and Sound Better.  All trademarks are the property of their respective owners.  Cheap Audio Mastering in not endorsed by or affiliated with and of the trademark owner

TESTIMONIALS

Cheap Audio Mastering Reviews

Where do I start? You blew everyone in the band away with this one! Your separation mastering gave everything in the mix more space. The overall clarity brings out sounds we never even heard in the original mixes.

We’re definitely telling everyone we know about Cheap Audio Mastering!

I usually use local studios for my mastering, but lately haven’t been happy with the results. My friends told me you can’t master music online, you have to be in the same room with the engineer. They were wrong.  Brett was amazing!  Communication was great and I’m very happy with the results. Thanks again!

Terry T.


BRETT YOU ROCK!! JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKIN FOR MAN.

John Huddleston

I have a new CD coming your way next week, Brett. I loved the work you did on our last two albums. This one will be one of our best, and we would like no one else but you to master it!
