    I had the pleasure of listening to some of his work and it is incredible, one of which being Matthew Rouch's album. His passion for what he does sets him apart from others. He has worked very hard to get to where he is now and I can see him progressing even farther. I'm excited to have an opportunity to work with Joe!

    Great Mixing and Mastering of the project I was involved in, couldn't be happier...look no further than Mockingbird Mix!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Joe is a master, plain and simple, a Jedi of producing, mixing and mastering. I was very impressed with the quality of his work. The balance of all the instruments and his additional touches as a producer really brought the album to life. I highly recommend Joe if you're looking for a true professional.

    I have worked with Joe for many years. He always has great ideas and takes mixes to the next level. Don't even think about using anyone else!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Some say Joe has the ears of the great wax moth (best hearing in the animal kingdom) His mixing skills and knowledge make some people believe he's not from this planet. Mr. Chudyk is simply the most interesting man in the world, stay acoustic my friends, and work with Joe......would recommend to anyone! Honestly this guy is incrediby talented.

  • Picture?type=large4 months agoby

    Joe is an extremely talented audio engineer and I always look forward to working with him on projects. His work on Matt Rouch's album was unprecedented. I can't recommend his services enough, as he has always gone above and beyond the scope of expectation in this industry. I look forward to many more great experiences with him!

Interview with Mockingbird Mix

Tell us about your studio setup.
I have a vintage 32 channel Neve console with tons of outboard gear and ProTools HD12. The studio is located in a restored 1800s victorian farm house with beautiful pine flooring from trees that don't exist in upstate New York anymore. They sound amazing!
What are you working on at the moment?
What am I not working on would be a more sensible question. My fiancé Jonell and I just had our first child, Audrey Wilding. It's been quite a trip, but possibly the best one you could ever go on. I'm pretty sure she can read schematics already as she's been hanging out in the studio quite a lot. I have a couple projects I'm working on at the moment. One is assembling Peterson's DIYRE catalog for an online retailer while the other is running my website. Throughout the 15 years we've been running the studio, we have been blessed to work with the likes of Skid Row, One Republic and Air Dubai to name a few. Recently, I have been getting some great electronic music to mix out of Hollywood, not to mention working with local Rochester group Scope & Figure on their full length album and editing coding podcasts. And that's just the tip!
What do you like most about your job?
It has to be mixing for me, I can't pinpoint exaclty why but it's always been that way for me. At Mockingbird Studios tracking is fun, as is playing and writing, but ever since I was in high school, I couldn't wait to sit in the studio and mess with the sounds we had. There is something exciting about having all these great sounds laid out in front of you, and you having control over how people are going to hear the record. You can really strike out or hit a home run at this stage. It's the stage with a lot of notes and a lot of tracks. It requires a fine ear, a steady hand and a tonne of patience.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
CLA, Tony M, Manny M, Eddie K, Michael B - all these great mixing engineers. I take a little from all of them and make it my own. CLA loves to boost and Tony likes to subtract. Let's do both! Let's mix ITB and then sum on the Neve. Heck, let's track the drums straight to 2 track. Yes, I've done that and you'd be surprised by the results. Right now, I'm really going under the hood and looking at how the signal path works, caps, resistors, IC's etc. Dave Rochester gave me the bug when I bought my neve and guys like Eric at Desert Island Audio are fueling my drive to get out the soldering station and work on my gear - it's simply addictive.
How would you describe your style?
Organic and analogue with depth and precision.
Can you share one music production tip?
Make sure everything is perfect in the recording stage. It makes the mixes so much more exciting to listen to!
What type of music do you usually work on?
Indie, Folk, Americana and Electronic.
What's your strongest skill?
Hearing what a song should sound like mixed during the first listen.
What do you bring to a song?
Excitement and depth. I'll help you get the song sounding the way you dream of it sounding.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I help take their already recorded and produced song and mix it to it's fullest potential. I bring out the subtle details to make the song as interesting and as exciting as possible.
