Q&A

Q: How much do you charge for mixing?

A: As each song and genre requires different techniques and skill sets, rates vary based on the amount of tracks, genre and type of musical elements used in the project. If you’re on a budget, we can work to find a solution that best fits your needs. Rap Mixes start @ $200. Mixes for all other genres start @ $300. All songs to be mixed will be reviewed upon receipt and client will receive a firm rate quote after file review.



Q: How long do I have to wait before my mix is complete?
A: Sheff’s Mixing Kitchen takes pride in a fast turnaround time with strict attention to both technical details and the needs of the client. During the initial consultation, actual turnaround time will be discussed.



Q: How do I receive the final mix?
