Vocal Production

Nowdays most vocals are treated to perfection and if yours is not it will immediately be noticed and won't feel right.
With all your different raw takes it is necessary to :
- select the best parts of each takes (comping)
- clean the audio (breath, noises)
- fix pitching (wrong notes), timing, amplitude, vibrato,...
- treat the dynamics (compressor), frequencies (eq, de-esser), color (saturation)
Those steps are paramount to reach that pro vocal. Those technical and artistical decisions will be made in the context of the tune.

Vocal Production (1 tune)   25$ (USD) 

Mixing

Once you have finished to work on your tune (composing, recording, arranging, automation, effects) it's time to mix it.
At this stage instruments (recorded or as VST), samples, effects are summed as it is and they need to be treated individually to reach the right balance common to professionally produced tunes regarding : volume, frequencies, dynamics, stereo image, while remaining faithful to the original artistic direction.
It's about correcting, enhancing, embellishing each single sound to give it its own space and be clearly heard so that it plays its role.
Mixing is about art and science and it is recommended to be done by a third party for the following reasons :
- After hours of work and listening the same tune in loop you loose your ability to take the proper decisions leading to a balanced pro result
- Pro gear, ears and environment are required to hear what is really happening so that your music translate perfectly on all supports at playback.

Mixing (1 tune - Stem mixing)   50$ (USD) 

Mastering

This is the final step in the production process.
While mixing was about treating each individual channel, mastering is about treating the final stereo file from the mixing stage to reach the final balance and ensure that your work translates well on all supports and at the correct target loudness (LUFS).

Mastering (1 tune - Stereo file)   25$ (USD)

Mixing + Mastering (1 tune - Stem mixing)   60$ (USD)

How to export and send files (Download as text file)


For a "Mixing" or "Mixing + Mastering"

1) Make a classic export as 1 file of the whole finished project (all plugins ON) in WAV 16bits and sample rate same as original project (44, 48, 88, 96Khz) which i will use as reference to verify the tune is complete once the stems are played together

2) For the stems (single individual chennels) do an export with maximum -6db on master channel (if volume peaks between 0 and -6db select all channels faders and lower them until master volume peaks at about -6db at loudest part of the tune)

3) All effects / VST OFF on master bus

4) DAW export options : Normalize OFF, Dithering OFF, WAV 16 or 24bits, sample rate same as original project (44, 48, 88, 96Khz)

5) Once the WAV are exported, gather and compress them in 1 single file using "Winrar" for example, free (https://www.win-rar.com/) on Windows or using the integrated utility on Mac, by selecting all files, right click, and compress. This allow to save a lot of space with the silences in the WAV files

6) Send the single compressed file via WeTransfer (https://wetransfer.com/) 2Gb max using my email : caplane@caplane.net

7) Please give me the key and bpm of your song (ex : Amin 120bpm) plus 1 or 2 songs titles that have the sound signature that you want for your tune that i will use as reference. Ideally well produced commercial tunes that represent well the genre.

For a "Master"

1) Make a single file export of the mixed project in WAV 24bits and sample rate same as original project (44, 48, 88, 96Khz)

2) Before exporting make sure the master volume peaks at -6db max (if volume peaks between 0 and -6db select all channels faders and lower them until master volume peaks at about -6db at loudest part of the tune)

3) All effects / VST OFF on master bus

4) DAW export options : Normalize OFF, Dithering OFF, WAV 24bits, sample rate same as original project (44, 48, 88, 96Khz)

5) Send the file via WeTransfer (https://wetransfer.com/) 2Gb max using my email : caplane@caplane.net

6) Please give me the key and bpm of your song (ex : Amin 120bpm) plus 1 or 2 songs titles that have the sound signature that you want for your tune that i will use as reference. Ideally well produced commercial tunes that represent well the genre.

For a "Vocal Production"

1) Export the instrumental version of your tune in WAV 16bits and sample rate same as original project (44, 48, 88, 96Khz)

2) Export all the individual raw takes separately peaking at max -6db on master volume (if volume peaks between 0 and -6db select channel fader and lower it until master volume peaks at about -6db at loudest part of the tune)

3) All effects / VST OFF on channel + master bus

4) DAW export options : Normalize OFF, Dithering OFF, WAV 24bits, sample rate same as original project (44, 48, 88, 96Khz)

5) Once the WAV are exported, gather and compress them in 1 single file using "Winrar" for example, free (https://www.win-rar.com/) on Windows or using the integrated utility on Mac, by selecting all files, right click, and compress. This allow to save a lot of space with the silences in the WAV files
