Hi, I’m Adam Vee.


I’m an audio engineer, a bit of a perfectionist, student of law & philosophy, and devoted music nerd.

My Audio Services

Mixing

Mixes connect your audience to the emotion in your music. Give your songs the aesthetic they deserve, whether clean and dynamic, punchy and energetic, or airy and ethereal.

Mastering

Whether you're aiming for radio, vinyl, or digital, mastering shapes how your songs come across to listeners. Great masters will grab ears and excite your audience.

Recording

Starting from scratch, final overdubs, or re-recording key parts: with two studios and a collection of classic and modern gear to pick from, your tracks can come alive.

Files & Data

Master recordings can be assigned ISRC codes for digital sales, encoded with metadata, and delivered in WAV, MP3, or other audio formats at no extra cost.

FAQ / Rates

Mixing

My rate for mixing is $30 per hour.

Mixing often takes three to six hours per song but this can vary widely. The time needed for a mix depends on how many audio tracks have been recorded, and whether any post-production work is required like noise reduction, tuning vocals, or drum editing.

On the other hand, songs that have very few elements (e.g. piano and vocal, vocal and acoustic guitar) can often be mixed quickly in one to two hours.

Mastering

Mastering is at a flat rate of $40 per song.

For best results, let me know of some songs you like the sound of so I can get an idea for factors like average volume levels, tones, and so on.

Audio files should be sent in the same format as they were recorded and mixed (e.g. uncompressed WAV or AIF files). MP3s are not a suitable format for mastering except in cases where the original full-fidelity audio files have been lost.

Recording

Recording varies widely in the length of time required and the type of studio needed. If live drums need to be recorded, this will be the main factor in determining the size of studio to be used. Please send a message with some general project details and I’ll be happy to provide an estimate.
