Preparing the audio files
The most reliable way to provide us with your audio project is to "mixdown" each audio and midi track of your song (this process can also be called "Merge", "Render", "Bounce", etc.). All audio files must start from bar 1, beat 1 of the song. Audio files can be at 16 or 24 Bit and at 44.1 or 48 khz. Make sure that all files are recorded at the same sample rate.

Before the mixdown of each audio or midi track:
1) Select the mixdown range from bar 1 until the end of the song
2) Make sure that the track volume is not too high or too low (usually it should be at zero db)
3) Bypass any effects (eq filter, reverb, delay, compressor, etc.) on the audio or midi/virtual synth track. You should leave plugin effects on the track only if you are sure that you like it because it is not possible to change it after the mixdown process.
4) Name the "mixdown" audio file like the original track (example: "Electric Bass", "Lead vocal", "Piano", etc.)
We have created some tutorials to help you with the "mixdown" audio process. In these tutorials we use Logic Audio, Ableton Live and Cubase, but it can be applied to any audio software.
Our recording system is based on Apple/Mac computers and Logic Pro 8 Studio, Logic Express and GarageBand. Even if your song is in Logic Pro/Logic Express or GarageBand format, we strongly recommend using the above "mixdown" process to provide us with your song's audio files.
How to send the audio files
The audio files should be sent via one of the file storage websites, such as megaupload.com, filefactory.com, depositfiles.com, mediafire.com, youswap.com etc. Preferably you should put the audio files in a folder and pack it as a ZIP or RAR archive before uploading. Windows users can use WinRAR, while Mac users should use the "Create Archive" function in Desktop File menu.
In case your song has many audio files, we suggest you create several folders and put 4 or 5 audio files in each folder. Then compress the folders and send them one by one.
In case of large file quantities you can send us a CD or DVD by mail.
Getting your Mixing and Mastering
Once we finish the mixing and mastering we will contact you by email. You should then make a PayPal payment. Click here to see our rates. (If necessary we can send you the instruction of how to make the PayPal payment)
As soon as we receive your payment, we will send you a weblink where to download your song. It will be a hi-quality CD audio file (wav file at 44.1 kHz/16bit). You can also burn the audio file to CD to listen to it.
Please note: you should have a broadband internet line to download hi-quality audio file (wav) in a reasonable amount of time.
You should check the mix and email us any changes you might want to make (we can also discuss changes, in real time, via our Evibe Chat). We will make the changes and put a new audio file online for you to download.

Some of our client's feedback:
"As a songwriter working for Chrysalis Music I recently started to use the mixing and mastering services of "wizard" Umberto Cimino from Evibe Productions. His skills improved the final quality of my songs enormously."
Raoul Garcia Vao - songwriter Chrysalis Music
It was a great pleasure working with Evibe . At first I was a bit sceptical but after hearing the production for my song any doubts I may have had disappeared. The finished production was superbly done to my specification and taken to another level with the production and arrangement skills of Umberto Cimino".
Roger Soyemi - songwriter
"When I gave my track to Evibe Productions I had already heard it on various pa systems and it sounded flat and empty. I used evibes mixing and mastering service and heard my track in a major night club last night.... Amazing the track was so full of life and it almost blew the place up everything was spot on. I used evibe as this track was being released and I needed a professional to give my track a professional finish. We here at Jagged Records will be using their service for all our forthcoming releases."
Jon (Jagged Records) - producer
"Umberto Cimino through his mixing and mastering service has given my song depth and a production quality finish that I could not achieve on my own. The process was very easy and friendly and I will work more with Umberto in the future.
I highly recommend Evibe Productions services."
Paul Churchward - songwriter - composer - producer
"I greatly enjoyed working with Evibe on my album... Not only was the service fast and efficient, it also had the quality I had expected (and more). Umberto was very friendly and approaching, with quick replies to my questions. Most importantly, the final product was exactly what I had wish for. Thanks a lot, Evibe."
Sung Kim (Banana Dynamite) - songwriter - composer - producer
Evibe Productions offer a highly effecient yet very impressive service. In my work with Umberto I found him to be both professional and personable, and he provided a level of mixing and mastering expertise which I would reccommend to anyone.
