Hi, jashnimal !
Ken Lewis offers a service such as you require at:
"Ken Lewis has been a top Mixer/Engineer for over ten years. His
credits include twenty-five Gold and Platinum albums, and four
Grammy-nominated albums. Ken has also performed as a musician on
several Gold records."
For out-of-town clients he offers a page at:
" You send me the files to mix. You give me a general direction you
want to go in. I mix the song, rip an MP3, and email it or Instant
message it to you. You download it. Listen to it. Request changes. I
implement your changes, rip another MP3, and then send it off to you
for more changes or your approval. It's really not a long process, and
we just repeat it til you love the mix. I have mixed records using
this method for major label clients quite successfully. Call me and I
can explain in more detail how easy this process is. A good deal of my
mixing business comes from out of town."
Ken is clearly a professional, and I imagine his service is not cheap,
and I am sure he will be very aware
of copyright issues.
