MUSIC INDUSTRY NOTES: What to consider in a Mixer Agreement

Published September 21st, 2020 | Kristina Didero

A song is written, the instrumentals are arranged, and now it’s time to get into the studio and record it. Typically the first step is to individually record each instrument playing the song from start to finish so that you end up with a number of different tracks. Next, the music is edited to adjust the tempo, timing, or pitch of any of the performances. Then, the music producer hands the files off to a music mixer who will adjust the levels of the sound and put the tracks together. The elements of the sound like reverb, compression, volume, and more, are manipulated to create depth, tone, and clarity at this stage. With the expansion in the variety of ways music can be played (i.e. car, laptop, portable speaker, smart home speakers, etc.) it is vital that the mixer ensures the mix can adapt to the formatting of different channels without ramifications to the audio quality. With an experienced mixer in your corner, the music can be fine-tuned so that any change in sound quality from device to device goes unnoticed. Basically, mixers are your best friends.
