Thank you for considering Lithium. Before uploading your tracks or visiting the studio, here are a few things you can expect: 

Mastering

If you plan to upload your tracks please provide the sample rate and bit depth of your tracks in an email. Please also give a description of how you would like your masters to sound. Audio samples are recommended.

If you plan to visit the studio in person be prepared to provide the same information. We will have a discussion about your tracks and my process.

You can expect your tracks to be tracks to be processed using only high-quality analogue and digital audio gear. Your tracks will be listened to with great care.

I provide a sample master of one track. After this sample is approved I will move on to subsequent tracks.

Mixing

If you plan to upload your tracks please ensure the following: 1) If using ProTools check that all of your tracks are named, 2) If you used a different DAW check that your stems are all named and start at time 0:00. In either case provide the sample rate and bit depth and a description of how you would like your mix to sound. Audio samples are recommended.

If you plan to visit the studio in person be prepared to provide the same information. We will have a discussion about your tracks.

I mix using as little processing as possible unless directed otherwise. I give the same care to mixing as I do to mastering.

I provide a sample mix of one track. After this sample is approved I will move on to subsequent tracks.

Production and Other Services

I require a consultation for all production, song writing and arranging, and audio restoration projects.

Payment

Payment is due ASAP after receiving your files. Cash, check, and cards are accepted.
