The Mixing Process
As a mixing engineer I have worked on many different genres and styles of music. Most of my mixing is done in my home studio where I use state of the art monitoring and conversion as well as an acoustically treated room. I use a combination of software – digital plug-ins (Waves, PSP, etc.) – and hardware – analog EQ’s, compressors and effects. (Rupert Neve Designs, Warm Audio, TC Electronics).
The Mastering Process
For mastering, I use mostly digital plug-ins to help me get a great sounding master. Mastering is really a delicate subject and few people know what it really entails. I focus on whatever is needed to make the song sound even better. This may include, for example: extending the low-and-high-end when needed and geting rid of unwanted frequency build-ups in the mid-range. I use compression as a tool to blend the mix more efficiently and to find the impact you are looking for. Feel free to ask me for a test master to hear what can be achieved in mastering.
