MIXING

Your music is your art, and you need someone who can help bring your sonic vision to life -- someone who will delicately craft your mixes to bring out subtle nuance and style, and who thinks and mixes with a composer's ear.

Most importantly you need someone who wants to work WITH you.

As a composer, arranger and performer, I have worked in a wide range of musical styles, from rock and metal to jazz, classical, world music and film soundtracks. I have written, recorded and toured with eclectic national acts (Polkadot Cadaver, Tub Ring) and also released my own solo albums.

But what can I do for you?

I can promise the individual attention your recordings deserve, and I will work with you to achieve the sound you want while maximizing balance, clarity, and dynamics. I want your music to live and breathe. I want it to go somewhere. And on top of all that, I don't want to bleed you dry -- I charge far less than a studio would! For more info, check out the FAQ below.

Check out the MIXING SAMPLES box to hear some previous mix projects in a variety of styles.

 

 

PRODUCTION

If your recordings require a little extra attention, I am also fully prepared to do additional production work. This can include things like tightening up performances, pitch correction, drum replacement and guitar re-amping (where a clean track is provided).

 

I can also compliment your recordings with additional instruments if requested -- keyboards, bass, backing vocals and more. If it's something I cannot physically do myself, I have a contact list of top-notch players (may include additional charges for their time).

FAQ

 

What does it cost?

$25/hr

 

Where do I need to be located?

Anywhere! With the advent of file-sharing sites like Dropbox and WeTransfer, you can easily upload your individual tracks from anywhere in the world, and have new mixes sent back to you for perusal in the same manner.

 

What gear do you use?

I typically run Pro Tools with a constantly-expanding set of high-end VST plug-ins.

 

How long will mixing take?

This depends on a number of factors, including the complexity, density and length of the music, the swiftness of communication between us, and so on. Each project will be different, but typically a small handful of songs will take a day or two, whereas a full album might take a week or more (rough estimate). I will keep you constantly updated on the progress, and there will never be a time that you're left scratching your head and hoping to hear something back soon. I will work to get your music a professional mix in as little time as possible.

 

How do I pay?

Since we will most likely be working long-distance, PayPal is best. If you prefer another method (personal checks, carrier pigeon loaded with cash, etc.), that will need to be discussed before work has begun.
