It’s not possible for your music to sound exactly the same on huge loud speakers, iPod earbuds and car stereos. But you do want it to retain the balance of instruments and general feel and sound good on each system.
Our purpose built, acoustically treated mix room combined with mutiple studio loudspeakers and reference headphones means that we make sure that no matter where you play it your music will shine.
When you mix in a computer the sounds can be amorphous – that is without a clearly defined shape or form
To overcome this we use analogue summing on our tracks to combine individual signals into one – the old fashioned way this maintains a sense of separateness, definition and space.
There is only so much space available for sounds in a mix and to maximise the effect these need to be controlled.
We use the C1 Smart Buss Compressor and not a little experience to keep the levels in check and add punch to the mix (Or take it away!)
Sometimes everything sounds too ‘digital’ especially if it never existed outside of the computer. It can feel and sound ‘unreal’
Often just processing 1 or 2 sounds out of the computer can give it authenticity and realism. We use stupidly hi-quality analogue Outboard Compressors and EQ to help warm individual sounds in the mix.
To achieve any sound imaginable, you need to have access to, know and understandthe vast amount of equipment ever invented. From spring reverbs, rooms, vocoders. The possible ways to destroy your mix are almost endless!
We own understand and know how to use a full suite of Waves, Native Instruments, and Nebula plugins. Plugins offer the equivalent of a warehouse of equipment allowing creativity, precision and practicality to the mix process.
Out of tune and out of time can ruin your mix before it’s even started.
We know every tool and technique to tame these issues in a natural and transparent way. We fix tuning, timing, and breathe issues to your taste. We also control the clicks and pops that other mixers miss!
People often wonder why their music doesn’t sound good on the radio, in a club or next to other songs that they like.
Mastering is the polish that allows your music to sit well with other music in it’s genre. This is an optional add-on. Whether you use us or someone else, you should always have your tracks mastered by a professional.
Mixing is hard. Buying mix technology is cheap. Don’t mistake one for the other.
Get the ears of someone that mixes every day and has learnt from mixing lots of stuff. We know when we’ve done a good job, when we haven’t yet and when we can’t ( We’ll tell you why, offer advice, send you a present and not charge you a penny/dollar/centimes/bean.) Like we said before, like it or don’t pay.
Obviously you can’t mix unless you can get here, spend 2 days in an airless room with us…. stay critical, get on with the engineer, explain yourself clearly and technically…..Dong! NO!

“Mixing music is like cooking. You can’t just add salt and pepper to transform your meal! You need to add the right ingredients at the right time and in the right way”
“..wow! great sound. you’ve managed to squeeze every last drop of juice out of these tracks. total respect due.”
“Rob and I really enjoyed working with you, and are really pleased with all the mixes. Thanks very much for all your help! If we decide to record again later in the year, we’ll definitely be in contact with you!”
“Umair at Silver Street is our go-to man for exemplary mixing and mastering that is loud but retains the warmth and depth of our tracks, even the high cold ones. He is fast, affable and unflappable (even in the face of projects with in excess of sixty tracks) sympathetic to a client’s vision (unless sympathy is not what is needed). He has a crystalline, almost freakishly good ear and should probably charge double what he does.”
“Silver Street Studios did a fantastic job with some promo tracks for our funk and soul wedding band ‘Red Soul Brigade’. We have a 3 piece horn section and wanted a warm Motown sound to replicate the kind of songs we play while being something that was still clear and energetic even on laptop speakers, of which the majority of our clients will listen on. The Silver Street team took our spec on board and delivered exactly what we wanted. “
