The Online Mixing and Mastering Process

Record Your Tracks

Record your tracks in the DAW of your choice attempting to achieve the best recording quality capturing exceptional performances. Whether you’re in a Hollywood professional studio or in your home – I can mix it

Upload Session Files

Prepare your files according to the guidelines and upload the session for mixing. Along with your Paypal payment and files, you will have the opportunity to convey your preferences, influences, submit reference material and notes to the mix engineer with your order form.

Mixing

I will proceed to mix your track, taking influence from your notes and applying my musical intuition to the project. In addition to setting proper levels and tone, the process may involve some editing, tuning, drum sample replacement, and the addition of special effects etc…The goal in the process is to mold the sonics of the track to best convey your intended emotion of the song to your fans and listeners.

Listen & Revise

When the first mix is complete, I will send the mix to you for approval and to gather your thoughts and feedback on the mix. I offer two weeks of unlimited revisions, so rest assured, you’ll be able to make any changes you would like to the mix. Once the revisions are completed, alternate mixes will be rendered for your archives and the track will be finalized in mastering.

Scott understands music technology and how it is producing incredible results for world-renowned artists- and can produce those same results for you! The secret?

“It’s not the technology,” Scott explains. “It’s putting the technology into the hands of someone with the skills, ears, experience, and creativity as I have developed over the years.”

I am so happy to have found Scott! He’s a fantastic mix engineer and just an all around good dude. Scott recently mixed and mastered by band’s full-length album and it sounds freaking amazing! Scott’s attention to detail, patience, and expertise have thoroughly impressed me. I have no doubt that I’ll end up working with him again in the future.

I would like to thank you for your wonderful work on my EP. My ‘hopeless’ goal was to be played on national radio – and I made it!
Without your brilliant mixing skills, I would not have made it this far. Thank you!

Have you found your mix engineer yet? I have, and his name is Scott Horton of Virtual Mix Engineer! Scott mixed my song and I couldn’t possibly be more satisfied. From beginning to end, Scott was polite, prompt, responsive, and beyond helpful. From a creative standpoint, Scott made ‘Stars’ even better than I ever imagined it could be!
