Stem Mixing & Mastering

Peak Hour Mastering provides an innovative and creative approach to the stem mixing service. On top and a standard mix and mastering service, we will help you get the most potential of your mix. We do much more than simply balancing the levels and EQ’ing each individual stem. Our goal is to help our clients & artists. We are not against to replacing sounds if we believe we can find a more appropriate one, for example: replacing a kick drum. Peak Hour Mastering will do whatever it takes to maximize the potential of your mix.

Speaking with our clients to get a clear vision of their goal is very important to us. We encourage a dialogue with us, so that they can help us to help them. During the stem mastering process each group of instruments are balanced, and imperfections are removed. After this the stems are mixed together and the final song is mastered. Vast improvements to the mix can be achieved with an hour or so of studio time. 6 stems maximum.

Additionally if budget allows, we can go into much more detail and offer what is a more in depth view to a full mix down service. A typical stem mix can take anywhere between 1 – 2 hours depending on the number of stems, the quality of the initial mix and whether any additional production is required (swapping out drum sounds / re-editing sections / adding additional sound effects etc.)

All stem work is charged by the hour. Please contact Bill for further details Bill@Peakhourartists.com.
