Editing audio and why its the most important part of mixing…
Audio editing is a left-side of the brain task. It’s simply the process of taking all the raw recorded tracks and getting them to a state where they can be mixed without any break in the creative flow. This is precisely why it is so important.
When all the hard work is done and you actually get to start mixing your song, you really want to get that right side of your brain in full flow, using all your creativity and imagination. NOTHING stops that quicker than realising the bass player is out of time and you have to stop and time-stretch the bass part and then edit the kick drum part and then fix a few notes in the vocal performance. With our audio editing service we get it ALL done first so you are on the right track
Anything recorded with multiple microphones and/or other sources such as DI will have some phase coherence issues that NEED to be address before mixing. This is absolutely critical and can make or break a mix before its even started. We can phase align any multi-tracked recording to give the best and fullest sound possible for mixing.
You’ve captured a great tone but perhaps just need to tighten up the performance? We can help to make sure your track has the best performance possible while retaining the original vibe and realism. Our audio editing service is commited to seamless results and attention to detail. We guarantee you’ll be 100% satisfied or your money back
It goes without saying that excellent vocals is extremely important in any song. We have the skills to give you exactly that, providing you perfectly tuned vocals whilst maintaining the natural qualities and tone of the performance.
Midi from audio
Whether we like it or not but part of the modern, punchy rock and metal drum sound comes from adding samples as layers under the existing recording. We can provide you sample-accurate and velocity controlled midi files for all drum tracks so you can achieve this instantly. Need to turn your bass guitar into a synth? We can provide midi notes of the bass performance. Contact us with your requirements and we’ll be happy to help
Audio Editing Examples
Here is a quick example of what our Audio editing service can provide. Take a listen to this bass track. It was recorded using a DI and an amp. In the first example both tracks are playing together:
Now have a listen to the same track with both the bass DI and amp tracks phase and time-aligned:
Here is a raw drum recording which is clearly out of time
This is the same track with the audio stretched in time
