What is it all about?... The Mix

Mixing is the process of combining a multi-track recording into a standard stereo track before mastering, and, moreso than mastering, mixing has tremendous effect on the ultimate sound of your song.

A good mix will make your song sound clear and polished and will complement the recorded elements of your song.

During the mixing process there are (3) three main aspects I want to achieve, which are:

1) Balance the levels of the different recorded tracks, to bring out the important elements in each section and make the song feel cohesive.

2) Manipulate and enhance the sonic character of different tracks with the help of processors such as EQ and compression.

3) Add creative effects such as delay, reverb, panning, and others to make the song sonically interesting dynamic.

I am a songwriter, arranger, producer and mixing engineer, and have developed these talents as a result of years of working with masters, education, practice and... blood, sweat and tears.

"... I learned that, even in the showbiz world of hype and hustle, sometimes less is more, and the best PR move is to do and say nothing. Let people's imaginations fill the void. All strategies work, if they're applied at the right time and with the right artist. I never forget that.... "
