With our spacious tracking room, wide selection of equipment and instruments, Reeltime Audio is the ideal setting to record anything from solo artist to full ensembles.
So you’ve finally done it. Months (and sometimes years) were spent writing and perfecting your songs. You have spent countless hours working on that one chorus or perfecting that ending. Afterwards you subjected yourself and band mates to intense yet pleasurable scrutiny of recording these songs. Days of multiple takes, layering guitar track upon guitar track and copious amounts of caffeinated beverages. Whether you recorded the project in a professional studio or elsewhere it is a wonderful thing to hear all of those elements morph into your songs. So, now what?
It’s time to mix.
Mixing is similar to playing a musical instrument. It’s not necessarily something you can read a book about and understand how do it. Mixing Is An Art That Takes Years To Master & Is Likely The Most Critical Aspect Of Making Recorded Music.. Having a guitar and knowing the mechanics of it do not mean you can play the guitar. Make a raucous, maybe. Likewise having the completed recorded elements of a song and a couple of faders do not mean a song can be mixed. A raucous made, definitely.
Elegantly put, mixing is an art and a crucial step in making a great sounding recording. It is the process of working with elements of a song on an individual level and combing them to construct a whole; the song. It Is Where A Talented Engineer Uses Equalization, Compression, Automation, And Effects Processing To Accurately Balance & Blend Multiple Sounds In A Clear & Coherent Matter At Reeltime Audio we cover both the technical and artistic aspects of mixing. The studio is centered around the ultimate mixing console: a 52-input SSL. Along side the board resides a plethora of outboard gear for processing and shaping sounds. Not to mention the digital plug-ins we offer.
Whether you recorded your music here, another studio or at home, Reeltime Audio can take your tracks and turn them into the song you want them to be. Sonic alchemy if you will. You spent time and money writing and recording these tracks, ensure they are mixed in good hands. Mixing at Reeltime Audio, headed by multi-Grammy Award winning album mixer Eric Delegard, will guarantee your song will be the best it can be!
If you happen to record you songs at home or another studio, do not fear! Reeltime Audio offers mixing services to outside projects for $400 or less depending on the project. Included with the option of one revision. All mixes are saved and can be restored via the SSL Total Recall feature.

Mastering can be considered one of the most essential and important stages in the production process. Unfortunately, it can also be the most overlooked and misunderstood process. The quick, simplified way to look at mastering is the final step between the recording and mixing of a project and it’s manufacturing and commercial readiness. Mastering will ensure the perfect mix you experienced via fine-tuned studio monitors will translate accurately into the consumer audio environment. Rather than manipulating individual instruments and racks, such as in mixing, mastering works with the songs and album as a whole. The levels and overall tonal qualities of each song are matched to ensure continuity. EQ, dynamics, and other processing is applied, and songs are arranged in the desired order. Mastering will allow your song and CD to playback at proper levels and can compete in sound with other commercial releases. Contact Reeltime for more information or to schedule a mastering session!
