Reviews of Mix JM

  • Default-avatarover 1 year agoby

    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!!

Interview with Mix JM

Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Biffy Clyro, Blur, Gorillaz, Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age and many more. I love working with great artists!
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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.
Analog or digital and why?
Both. Digital for recallability and its clean sound. Analog for its sound, unique to every piece of gear.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I promise I will mix your songs better than any of my previous work. I get better with each mix.
What do you like most about your job?
Being a part of something very unique.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Good bands ask how I would like the tracks to be prepared for mixing. My answer is very detailed.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
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.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What are your favourite albums that you love the sound of? When would you like to get it done?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Do not try out free mix engineers. Good mixers don't have time for that. Choose a few good mixers, pay them to mix one song and only after that choose. Be involved in the process and always give feedback of what you like and what you don't.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Pro Tools HD, Focal Trio monitors, ICON console, 1176, LA2A
How would you describe your style?
loud and punchy
Can you share one music production tip?
label everything and use short labels
What type of music do you usually work on?
rock
What's your strongest skill?
mix automation
Tell us about your studio setup.
Pro Tools HD + ICON D-Command, Focal Trio and Quested S8R monitors, some analogue and digital outboard.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
My favourite mix engineers and producers are: Andy Wallace, Rich Costey, Brendan O'Brien, Mark "Spike" Stent.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I mix records and I deliver them mastered for CD (DDP) and digital online services.
