How do I submit my tracks?
Once you’ve completed the assessment of audio and payment, you will receive an e-mail with upload instructions and contact info from Universal Mixing Studios.
Once I submit my tracks, how long will it take to receive my mixes?
Turnaround time is at least 15 business days after you have uploaded your files to the UMS eFolio folder, depending on the amount of songs included in your mixing project.
I have a few specific ideas for the mix. Can I discuss these with the mix engineer?
Absolutely! You will have an on the phone consultation with the mixing engineer working on your project. Then you will be able to discuss all your ideas in an open dialogue between you and the engineer. This is to ensure that all parties will be completely on the same page and aware of what to expect from the final product.
After I receive the mix, can I make comments or ask that something be changed?
Yes! An MP3 of the mix will be sent to you for reference. The mix engineer will work with you to address any changes or suggestions you have for the mix. A second MP3 reference will then be sent to you for approval before the mix is final. The mix engineer will do everything possible (within reason) to make sure you are happy with the mix!
Do you do mastering?
Yes! Please see our Mastering page here for more information.
