I will mix and master your song. Pricing depends on Track count and length of song. Package prices for multiple songs. When you contact me send an example of your music and tell me a little about your project, how many tracks there are in your songs and the length. That way I can give you a fair price and start out on that right foot. You can do up to 3 revisions. I use Protools and Logic Pro X. You will find my price reasonable and I strive to make every client love their mix and have a great experience working together.

    Mr. Hairston truly is a professional with his engineering work and interaction with me as an artist. He was very flexible, patient and open to hearing me out, even though he is the true technician! He was also very efficient with his work. Great experience!

    Gerard is a pleasure to work with. Not only did he elevate my tracks with a unique sense of gestalt, he delivered them four days ahead of schedule. Also, Gerard gave plenty of updates and received feedback well. Truly a pleasure and I'll be working with him again!

    How do I start? too good to believe. This is an industry engineer. I used cheap low quality sounds in my beat cause i don't have the good quality ones in my DAW and my microphone is not the best but this guy made it sound like something recorded in a real expensive professional studio. Easy Communication, willing to do what you exactly ask for

  • Default-avatar2 months agoby Verified Review

    Gerald is excellent in every sense of the word! His communication is great, at no point of the process did I ever feel left out. He arranged my song in a way that I never would have thought...then he put an awesome mix and master on it. He definitely went above and beyond for me and I know he will do the same for you as well!

    Revision after revision was met with accuracy to provide me with absolute content.
    At no time I felt like all was lost in communication, even though I was not physically present to stop and point out. Gerard patiently adjusted tuned and perfected.
    Great working with Gerard and look forward to upcoming mixes.

    I was under a tight deadline on a song and Gerard came through in the clutch and knocked it out the park. Great to work with and delivers a professional sound!

    I recently worked with Gerard on a independent film project. He mixed the music, dialog, and did sound design. It came out wonderful. The producer and director were very happy with his work. We will be using him again.

    Honestly, Gerard has created some the best and most colorful and well-balanced mixes I've heard over my career in the music industry. He's an experienced Engineer with an ear for what's going to be hot. Timely and detail oriented, his work is top notch. I highly recommend him.
