The mixing stage is so crucial, a professional mix engineer will bring out the personality/life of the song. Getting all the elements in the track balanced correctly. Being able to hear all the instruments clearly. Making sure the track has depth and width. Getting the vocals on point. Professional mixing is a must when sending music to record labels or releasing independently.
100% happy with your final mix down? If yes you're ready for mastering. Mastering is the final part in the record making process. I can address any imbalances in eq or compression you might of not heard. Eq sweetening, a number of special tricks, plus I will match the final volume of your track with relevant commercial releases!
A halfway house between mixing and mastering is stem mastering. Instead of mixing down to a stereo track, bounce down the main elements into STEMS. For instance the vox group stem, drums group, bass group, guitars group and maybe keyboards. I now have separate stems to help create a better final master.
