We live for mixing and mix coaching.
Here's how we work:
We’ll send you a link to upload the tracks you want mixed to our server, or you can send us your 24-track master tape.
We’ll talk with you by phone or email about what you’re looking for in the mix, and where we think it should go.
We'll set up the mix and then schedule a Sessionwire session to work on it together (all you need is a browser), coaching as we go. Or you can skip the coaching and we'll send progress mixes.
Final mixes will be provided by the agreed-upon time, and revised if necessary. Working with you online often gets the best outcomes.
Tape used in the 70s, 80s and 90s is deteriorating and soon may go irrevocably bad. You should act today to digitize and preserve your music. We transfer 1/4-inch stereo tapes for $50/reel and 2-inch 24-track for $125/reel.
We've been working with magnetic tape and tape recorders for 50 years. Nobody knows more. You can trust us to restore and transfer your master tapes lovingly and professionally.
Here's what we'll do:
1. Check your tape to see if it needs to be baked. If it does, we have all the right equipment and protocols to restore it for that once-in-a-lifetime transfer.
2. Align one of our meticulously-maintained Studers to the tones on your tape (or to MRL reference if you have no tones).
3. Transfer your masters into Pro Tools at the bit rate and depth you specify, through our Burl Mothership converters.
4. If applicable, decode from Dolby A or SR, so you can have both encoded and decoded files.
5. Provide you with a link to download your wav files that can be imported into any DAW and, if you wish (extra charge), provide an optical disk or flash drive.
Today at TRC, we have the flexibility to use Pro Tools and/or the Studer. But, we also have extensive experience mixing music in a fully analog world during decades with our production company TRCPG. And we’ve brought those analog chops forward with the great room acoustics, dozens of cool mics, and racks of analog outboard gear. The history of TRCPG is documented on a page that includes some streaming samples.
More streaming samples (including some recent productions) are here.
Producing great music today requires seamlessly fusing the analog and digital realms. Analog equipment makes music sound like music, while the incredible flexibility of Pro Tools on the S6 enhances creativity and helps get a better product. Analog preamps (many with tubes), the Studer 24-track and Pro Tools on the S6 make it possible to get both great sound and exceptional mixing flexibility.
