We work remotely for most of our clients since we are situated in North and South America as well as South Africa.
We’ve managed music production as well as mixing sessions very successfully in the past across continents.
Mixing & Mastering
We do not charge for mastering since it is included with mixing. We take a slightly different approach to the norm by mastering during the mixing process.
There are many advantages following this route, from being able to fix potential problems with the mastering limiter as well as avoiding unnecessary multiband compression later because of problems that should have been corrected during the mixing process.
You are still more than welcome to have the songs mastered by your mastering engineer of choice. We can deliver mixes without master bus compression and limiting.
Free Home Recording Guide
We’ve seen a quantum leap the last couple of years in technology and you are now able to record at home with professional studio results.
We are working on a free home recording guide for you in which we will teach you everything from the equipment you need all the way to recording.

Get In Touch
Do you record as well?
Yes, but since recording is location specific we’ve been doing a lot of music production and mixing for clients who either record themselves or at another studio in their area since our clients are from all over the world.
How does music production work?
Typically a song starts with you sending us a basic recording (even if only done on your phone) with you singing your song with or without an instrument.
Then you direct us to what your vision with the arrangement is either with notes or a reference arrangement.
We then do a basic arrangement (3 or 4 instruments) and send it through to make sure about the structure, speed and dynamics before we continue.
Strings (if needed) will first be programmed for your approval after which it will be replaced with live strings. We then finish the music and you are welcome to give your feedback.
Does your productions include backing vocals?
Yes, we record backing vocals after lead vocal recording before mixing. This is to ensure the backing vocals support the artist. If you only want us to do music production we will not supply backing vocals.
Is Google Meet effective for revisions?
Yes, we have successfully done music production as well as mixing across continents and interacted with artists in realtime.
We use Google Meet to share our computer screen and communicate with artists. We stream high quality audio to the client through a URL (web address) we supply on the day.
What about mixing and mastering?
If we did the music production you will record your vocals either with us (if the location permits) or elsewhere and send the vocals back to us for mixing.
We also mix and master complete productions done elsewhere.
how does payment work?
We use PayPal for all payments received.
It works on the basis of the client paying for a product or service and the money is only released by PayPal after you have received a finished product you are satisfied with.
This is to safeguard all the parties involved.
