Stage 1: Pre-Production This is where we have a initial consultation about the track(s), we'll have a listen via Skype and you can tell me your vision for the track. * note I reserve to the right to refuse any music I deem unfixable*
Stage 2: Production This is where the magic happens turning the idea's we come up with into reality. This stage includes Cleaning,Retiming,Leveling, Mixing, Fine Tuning your sound, and adding necessary ear candy to bring your track alive.
