My band just finished our first demo, posted at: www.myspace.com/gridlockrocks

Need some advice on mixing and mastering... we have a ProTools setup and are looking to get a CD-like quality for this song. Do you have any tips on boosting/cutting frequencies, mastering techniques, and any other advice to help us out?

Thanks!

Best bet is a pro mastering house if you have the budget. You would be paying for experience and equipment that has taken years to get together.

If you are dead set on DIY, be prepared for it to take a long time, as you will have to do a lot of reading and research. A lot of good articles to read here that are older and free to look at.

+1 on getting it mixed and/or mastered professionally...

If you want to do any DIY, then mixing might be a good test run, but have it mastered...Most mastering engineers have indie rates.

If you're in California, or New York, you can hit up one of the major facilities (Mastering Lab in CA, Sterling Sound in NY) and get someone to do it there w/ an indie rate. I believe Sterling has some sort of 'after hours' rate where you get an assistant to work on it. It's good to sit in on these things.

I also recommend MixOnline...http://www.mixonline.com
