Music Licensing, Mixing and Mastering

Music Licensing is a big potential windfall for any artist. By adding one extra step, you will be prepared to potentially make a lot of extra money if a music licensing situation presents itself.

When you send your mix’s out for Mastering, send your instrumental mix for Mastering as well. If you ever get the opportunity for music licensing in film or TV , you will need both mixes.

Having both mixes available for music licensing is crucial. A music editor needs to be able to bounce between the song mix and instrumental mix to accommodate film or TV dialogue. Without both the song mix being Mastered and the instrumental version being mastered, the edit becomes very tricky and sometimes too difficult to do.

Without both mixes, you may lose your music licensing placement and be out potentially thousands of dollars.
