What I want to offer is the best mixing and mastering option for you. Please contact me and we will together assess if I am the right person for your project. Once I'm hire for the project, I am patient, I'm happy to do many revisions without loosing temper and I push the artist to try making better decisions when I feel it's necessary.

> competitive sound quality <
> many mix revisions with careful consideration of all feedback from the artist <
> short waiting time for mix revisions <
> delivery of multiple versions of the mix <
> mixes are mastered on the go, ready to be published in streaming and on CD <
> delivery of subgroup stems, tv mixes, radio edits, etc. <

If you are unsure, if you haven't worked with me, you have something already mixed by a fantastic mix engineer but you would like to see how I could do it to see if it could be pushed any further? If that other version is amazing, I'll do a free demo mix for you to check out. If you choose my mix approach, I'll be happy to present you with a competitive offer.

    I have worked with Jacek and have found him to be patient, totally competent and a pleasure to be with. As a sound engineEAR I can confirm that he has not one, but two, very good ears.

    Highly recommended.

    Jack is an amazing mix engineer. He's patient and thorough and has great ears. He understands all there is to know about both vintage analogue and the latest digital gear. And he's a lovely guy to boot!

    We (Fruhstuck from Poland/The Netherlands) are finishing up our 3rd (!) full length CD with Jacek. I've been in the studio with Jacek many hours, he's a pleasure to work with. Patient and wise in his ways with the musicians. A good musical ear, and great knowledge of gear, analog as well as digital. A lot of fun after work and great food!

    The Hookline Shakers are a two piece rock band from Christchurch New Zealand.
    When our album tracking was finished we sent the first track to several potential mix engineers all over the world. Jacks mix was by far the best and we hired him to do the full album.
    Jack is a pleasure to work with and his mixing is just fantastic.
    Highly recommend!!

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: rock

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  11. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  12. A: What are your favourite albums that you love the sound of? When would you like to get it done?

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: One of the biggest is the one when people think that great sounding songs can get done from poor recordings and be fixed in the mix.

  15. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  16. A: Good bands ask how I would like the tracks to be prepared for mixing. My answer is very detailed.

  17. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  18. A: Being a part of something very unique.

  19. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  20. A: I promise I will mix your songs better than any of my previous work. I get better with each mix.

  21. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  22. A: Both. Digital for recallability and its clean sound. Analog for its sound, unique to every piece of gear.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Pro Tools HD + ICON D-Command, Focal Trio, Genelec 1031 and Yamaha NS10 monitors, some analogue and digital outboard.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style is mostly powerful sound with "in your face" presence combined with some space. What's unique to my mixes is building a sense of movement and drama in songs by incorporating significant amount of volume and fx automation.

  27. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  28. A: I'd take Pro Tools, Neve 1073 preamp, U47 mic, 1176 compressor and Genelec 1031 monitors. I wouldn't be able to power it on a desert island, would I?

  29. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  30. A: I started from playing drums. I recorded myself to cassette tape using a couple of mics. In 2001 I started doing live sound mixing for bands and it slowly shifted towards recording studio. In 2006 - 2008 I went to London to study at SAE and I got running and assisting experience in top studios with big rooms, SSL and Neve consoles. I became a full time freelance mix engineer in 2008 and I haven't stopped mixing ever since.

  31. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  32. A: Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Biffy Clyro, Blur, Gorillaz, Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age. They are amazing artists!

  33. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  34. A: Be involved in the process and always give feedback of what you like and what you don't.
