Want heavy, hard hitting Djent mixes?
I offer mixing and mastering for most modern metal genres (Djent, progressive, metalcore, etc.) for reasonable prices. All mixes are created from the raw audio files you send me, and will be crafted to your liking! If you are looking for an entire album to be mixed/mastered, send me one song off of the album and I will mix/master it free of charge!
1. A demo/premix of the song so I can an idea of how you sound
2. All audio tracks must be sent in .wav file format (44.1/24) and must begin at the beginning of the project (must be aligned)
3. All tracks must be properly labeled (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Gtr1, Kick Drum, etc.)
4. I highly recommend sending DI bass and guitar tracks as well. Use of midi drums or live drums is up to your discretion
5. Any FX tracks (bass drops, etc.) must be sent as .wav files as well (no midi)
6. A reference track by a commercial artist that best represents the sound you are aiming for
1. Stereo post-mix of your song in .wav file format (44.1/24) with no compression, limiting, EQ and the like
2. Reference track by a commercial artist that best represents your sound
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and how I can help get you the best possible mix!

Interview with Kyle Wood Audio
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am about to start a recording project for Afterglow for their EP. It's not typically the music I work with but I'm excited to see what they bring to the table.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Much faster, much cheaper, more portable, and you get the same quality as analog gear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will always give a mix they are satisfied with.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The prospect of working with the next big band. It's always an exciting endeavor when you work with an artist that you feel will take off very soon.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Meshuggah. I have been a fan of them ever since I started listening to heavy metal, and Tomas Haake is my all time favorite drummer. I think it would be cool to work with the artists that brought Djent into mainstream metal.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always listen through a project before you even touch it. Get a sense of how the song flows. Take note on where you could add something to make that song stick out. Don't dive right in, take a minute and just listen. It goes a long way.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I love to work on heavy music, I grew up listening to it and never get tired of it.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I feel like bring in some more depth to a song. A lot of songs I listen to, while they are well produced, feel like they could make just a little more use of the stereo field. I try to find a good balance of a mix that sounds really cool in stereo, but transfers very well to mono
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start with making a rough mix on a crappy speaker, getting levels balanced, adding EQ and the like. Once it sounds decent on the bad speaker, I move it over to the studio monitors to really fine tune the mix. Once I'm satisfied with where it sits, I usually make an mp3 of the mix and take it to my car to see if it transfers well to other listening platforms. I will make adjustments until it sounds good on everything.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: While my personal rig is my laptop and studio monitors, I have access to several studios through my school and regularly use them for mixing purposes.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My professors, Dr. Honour and Dr. Kaiser really inspired me to take this leap into the professional world. I have worked closely with both of them and continue to do so.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually do mixing and mastering work, though I have done recording projects for fellow students at my school!
