The recording rate is $35 per hour (professional engineer included). Our live room is stocked with an extensive supply of premium electric guitars, amp models, pedals, and effects, along with an expansive selection of drum, vocal, and room microphones.
Aggressive Audio has tracked hundreds of songs and logged thousands of hours behind the mix desk, but some artists prefer their own people, and we understand. You are always welcome to use any mix and master engineer of your choosing and you ALWAYS own all your files! Whether you track your album with us and send the files to your favorite engineer, or we also mix and master for you, the flexibility and choice is yours and the world of sound is at your fingertips.
MIXING AND MASTERING
The difference a good mix makes is absolutely mind-boggling. When I first started down the road of learning audio engineering, I took a stab at recording and producing my band’s first album. I wasn’t sure through the whole process if I could actually get everything to sound good or not. Even though I was sure I was recording properly and using awesome gear, it sounded dull, flat, and very unexciting. I was disappointed, but still optimistic. We decided to send our tracks to a professional for assistance. When we got our first mix back, I had tears in my eyes within the first minute - All the hard work was not for nothing and our song sounded huge and professional!
Ever since then I decided I’ve devoted myself to learning the art of mixing and mastering. If you think your tracks are at a loss and can never sound as good as the pros, you may be in for a surprise. Send us your own recorded tracks and with our professional mix, you'll be surprised how amazing you actually sound. Mixes include all vocal tuning/pitch correction if desired, some post production FX, mastering, and the whole 9 yards. If you require other services such as drum editing (Quantization), drum writing, or other midi done we can work out a plan. Mixing is a very time-consuming task, but is the most important step in making your songs sound as aggressive and modern as possible. Our mix and master price is $150 per song. Each song includes 3 total mixes ( 2 revisions after the first mix is sent) to get your song perfect. You won’t find professional results at this price anywhere.
If you are simply wanting a song mastered it is $40 per song or $30 per song if you are doing 3 or more.
