I believe in an open and transparent team process of the mixing phase of music - with all the new bells and whistles plus some old tricks. Don't settle for a transactional mixing service. Let's collaborate to pull on the strings of the unique character from your music and give it life.
I pride my company on an immersive, truly collaborative mixing phase of music with innovative and unique processing. A quick breakdown of the mixing process would go something like this:
- Establishing a strong understanding of the desired end vibe (Skype calls, lots of reference tracks)
- depending on the quality of the recordings, cleaning up stems. This includes adjusting timing/live performance errors with the goal of not sacrificing any energy, removing unwanted noise/crackling/room tone, etc and if you desire, re-tracking parts with our collection of boutique and legendary gear.
- two to three mixed first versions of each song. This is where I experiment are working on pulling the best character and unique vibes from your music - ranging from absolutely subtle magic energy to wild, immersive experiences depending on yourwishes and desires.
- after receiving feedback from you on the version one mixes, deciding which path to continue down to make a second version.
- after one more round of feedback, mixing a final version.
Mastering: Thankfully, loudness normalization across many streaming sites has brought us a way we can enjoy dynamic music again. If you'd like, we can deliver two masters: one very loud and one that just sounds good (and doesn't have to compete on a loudness scale). Note: I will not master any track that I have mixed.

Gabe was wonderfully communicative and really helped me create a great track. He listened to my ideas and influences, then captured the sound exactly. Would love to work with him in the future!

Working with Gabe has been an amazing experience! He's a true technical wizard as an Engineer and incredibly professional. On top of that, he genuinely cares for your music ve done with him has been transformational. Would highly recommend him to any artists out there.
wow! Thank you Gabe, you really brought new life to this track! The muddiness is totally gone, and it's almost as if there is more movement within the project.
My experience with Gabe Sweeney, at Renga Studios, was nothing short of professional. He kept in communication with me about how the track was going, and whether or not i had any sound related preferences in regards to the master. The final product came out great, and I couldn't be happier!
Loved working with Gabe, he really brought my track to life and communication was excellent. Would recommend!
Had an amazing time working with Gabe. He has a sharp ear and an earnest communication style which he applies with total attention to the projects presented to him. Very happy with the results of our collaboration. I felt like working with him on the tracks was an educational experience in itself due to his impressive knowledge of his craft.
Working with Gabe / Renga Studios was an incredible experience. In my time making music, I have not found someone who has such a strong technical ability alongside a true investment in creating a collaborative working relationship. Gabe helped take our record to sonic spaces that we hadn't envisioned, while also respecting and buying in on what we set out to do. He showed his engineering prowess in the depth and clarity of the mixes and the flawlessness of the mastering. An artist's engineer! Can't recommend his work highly enough.
Intricacy and finesse!
I was lucky to have Gabe mix and master my band's first EP -- it sounds rich and big!
Excellent delivery. Definitely working with him again.
Gabe did an excellent job mixing my 2018 EP. He has an ear for picking out musician's strengths and leveraging them to make the best possible mix. He listened to my feedback and adjusted the mix multiple times. He really nerds out and puts his heart into it. I will be calling him for my next recording project.
