Mixing
If you want to have a fresh pair of ears for your music project or an experienced handling of your project, you have to come to the right place. Cone Music can provide the expertise and experience that your music needs prior to Mastering with our Mixing service. A great mix creates an excellent master.

The Mixing process begins by forwarding your audio project with separated tracks (vocals, guitar, beat track, bass, etc..) using Dropbox or our FTP faciltiy. Our preferred format to receive project files is OMF (Open Media Framework). Projects can also be sent as separate wav-files with equal length (for example using the Bounce feature in Logic Pro).

When exporting please note that we prefer everything with little effect or eq as possible. The exception of course is if you have an effect that you want included in an individual track. Once the project is received, the individual tracks will be reviewed one by one. Mixing is of course subjective; therefore Cone Music provides online samples of each song giving the artist(s) the opportunity to provide feedback. Of course it always helps to create the desired results if you have reference tracks (examples of how you would like your music to sound). Any modifications that are requested will be reviewed and returned as a new sample.

A long distance relationship has been proven to work better, rather than having the engineer and artist(s) in the studio. There is less stress and usually better communication on both ends.

If you have any questions, please contact us. Also, please visit the shop to view possibilities, prices and pay for services. Prices include elimination of unwanted audio within tracks, such as pops, loud breathes, talking, instrument and vocal noises before and after takes, etc.. Once you have paid for your service you will receive instructions how to forward your project.

Remixing
Remixing is a special brand of mixing where new elements to the mix are introduced or elements from the existing mix are replaced with new elements. Cone Music has all the resources to completely transform your projects and take them to a completely new level.

Mastering
Mastering (for LP, CD our digital download) is the final step your music takes before it is manufactured. It takes talent and experience to bring out all the potential of your mixes. I have over 20 years experience in Mixing and Mastering.

If you have any questions, please contact us. Also, please visit the shop to view possibilities, prices and pay for services. Once you have paid for your service you will receive instructions how to forward your project.

Composition
I have written, recorded and produced music for television ads, films, theme tunes, recording artists and much more. The 2009 digital download poduction “Ride The Waves” offers you a good overview of the musical themes and diversity of some of the most striking of these projects.

Please contact me if you want a quote on the music for your next project!

Although it is of course possible that we do the mixing and mastering , we prefer the idea to include two different persons or companies: one for the mixing and one for the mastering. In our opinion this two-step approach will yield in a better final result!

We’d love to hear from you and we hope to be at your service!
