When designing a single or album, the mixing step consists in adjusting the level of the tracks, highlighting and spacing each instrument present in the composition. Mixing makes it possible to obtain an audio quality worthy of the greatest professionals. Your recording made in a recording studio or home studio may require retouching and adjustments. 

Just like adding ingredients in a recipe, each instrument can be sublimated thanks to effects: compressor/limiter, expander/gate, equalization and be put in space : reverb, stereo management. The sound of the recording is harmonized, automation and balance between instruments are adjusted and dynamics are improved. The sounds and colors present in the composition or arrangement must be organized and structured. 

Harmonics and light distortion can be added to your tracks in order to enrich the harmonic spectrum of your title. High-cut and low-cut filters can also be added to lighten too much bass, to soften the trebles. Effects are also added to give punch and dynamics to the sound of the bass and drums. Keyboards, guitars and harmonic instruments are spaced to expand the sound of your title. 

Correct corrections to the voice can also be made using softwares. It is also possible to bring effects (dubbing, reverb, delay, chorus, detuning according to your ideas and the style of your music). The average time for a single is 72 hours and a week for a full album.
