Default Anybody want to mix/master my EP? *PAYING GIG*

Hello All,

I am looking for someone who would want to mix/master my 7 track EP. I have two songs uploaded (for demo purposes) that characterize the range/style of my music, and was hoping someone would find them interesting and take on the entire project. I will happily pay you for your work and time, and obviously include you in the EP credits.

All I ask is that you send me a link to where I can listen to some of your mixes, preferably in the rock or alternative genres, though I will certainly keep others in mind. Please also include your pricing. I will pay via PayPal or another secure transaction system. Finally, please include a good e-mail address for you.

EDIT: Budget is $150-200, which I hope is decent for someone working this is as a side gig, but in the end, I know its not much. I realize it is not nearly adequate for someone whose full time job is audio work, so please take no offense.

I have all my stem files ready for export, just need to know where to send them too.

Here are the two songs I have uploaded:
Empty Hearted

City Sleep

Hey COAndy
I've been looking for some summer projects to get back into music production so this is perfect timing.

Epic Sounds, your mixes sound great. I'm afraid you are out of my price range, and I wouldn't insult you with my budget, haha. I thank you for interest!

What is your price range? Not working for $5 an hour.

I was looking at $150-$200. I know its not much, and I don't expect many people to be interested at that price range, but figured it might be worth a shot. I've had tremendous luck working with folks on this forum, but I know that this is a stretch.

Well 7 tracks for $200 is about $30 per song. On average I'll spend 5 hours per song mixing so thats $6 an hour.

Hey CoachZ, totally understood. I realize that some folks spend a lot of time on mixing and mastering, and I know this is not an adequate budget for someone who is earning their meal ticket off this kind of work. Hell, its not even that great for a side gig. But I figured it was worth a try.

Hey CoAndy,

Took a listen to your tracks.

Very enjoyable. I like the lyrics and energy.

You're not far off a good finished product so hang in there I'm sure someone whose first priority isn't the money will come along soon.

I don't think it will take too much work to give you a solid finished project.

Best of luck.

I'm not earning a meal ticket. Just valuing time and skills.

Thank you for the kind words! I appreciate the feedback. Your mini review is similar to others I have received, in that the songs are arranged nicely and just need to be polished up. I certainly owe a lot to this forum! While I don't post much, I've been coming here for years to watch and learn.

Hey, CoAndy,

Fine songs you have there. I really like the demos, well done. If you like, you can send me stems for one track, and I will make a test promo mix for you. If you like it, we can then make agreement to mix/master all songs, within your budget. If you don't like my test mix, you can keep it anyway for reference, at no charge. Let me know if you are interested.

First, thank you so much for the kind words. The songs on this ep have been with me for years during some huge moments in my life, so it was far past time to get them recorded.

Your offer is exceptionally generous. I would love to take you up on your offer. Let me know your preferred email address and I'll send you the stems this weekend.

Hey not looking to hijack your thread, but I’m also looking for someone. Glad you posted this. Being new here, it’s good to know there are guys making their services available and willing to work with a budget. Gives me some hope. I’m looking for someone to program drum tracks for 2 of my rock tunes, then move on to mixing and mastering for vinyl.

PS I listened to your songs, really good stuff!
