  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: I bring life through mixing and corrections through tuning and editing.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: Depending on the project. For mixing, I organized the mix by instruments, color code them for easy access, create submasters for the different instrument groups, a general submaster for 2-mix processing. I begin a mix overall levels, then focus on the rhythm section starting with drums, bass, guitars and keys. After the foundation of the mix is sounding great, I start introducing vocals, other lead instruments backgrounds, effects. As far as signal processing I begin with subtractive EQ to remove unwanted or unnecessary frequencies to open up space for other instruments to fit within the frequency spectrum, I then move to compression to even out performances then I work on what I call wings which is the low end and the high end. Once the low end and high end are working correctly I work on the mids which take the most time. I then add reverb and delay effects. Once the mix feels good, I introduce reference mixes to confirm if the mix is going in the intended direction, then after some passes I introduce 2-mix EQ and compression. The final step will be automation of levels throughout the whole song to bring the song to life and add dynamics to it.
