I'm a recording and mixing engineer specializing in bringing your unique vision to life.
I work full time at a commercial studio working with artists of all genres and budgets. I'm extremely adaptable to every style and make it my purpose to achieve the individual sound each artist has envisioned for their art. I offer recording out of Real Feel Recording in Orlando, FL as well as editing, precision vocal tuning, mixing and mastering.
I also work with a producer who is available to do arrangement, produce your track or add various instrumentation to an existing song.
I enjoy working with artists from every level of experience. Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned pro, I want to achieve a high quality product that you're proud of. Contact me and let's start making some music together!

Interview with Stephanie Rendell
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do mostly recording and mixing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: John Mayer has always been a huge inspiration to me. But as far as music professionals, I'm a huge fan of the mixing styles of Manny Marroquin, Serban Ghenea and Michael Brauer.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use Genelec 1032a monitors, Dangerous Music DBox, Apollo 16, Avantone Mixcube with a MacPro running ProTools 12 and Logic Pro X.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I record with all analog preamps and compression: Vintech 473, API 3124, Millennia HV-3C, Focusrite ISA Two, Empirical Labs EL8 Distressor, Stereo Pair Warm Audio WA76.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Attention to detail
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vocal editing and tuning, and vocal sound in general in mixing.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on a lot of hip hop, pop and singer songwriter music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Charlie Puth. His perfect pitch and background in jazz have influenced his writing and added a cool complexity to his pop songs.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Very Hi-Fi. I love making everything as clean and punchy as possible. However, if that doesn't suit the song I'll do whatever sounds best.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as an intern in 2013, and went to school for engineering from 2015-2016. I've been engineering full time for almost 2 years.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be specific in what you're looking for. Be organized with your files. Understand that the source material has a huge part in the quality of the product at the end.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask about their goals and their influences to understand where they're at right now and where they want to be.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It's not all glamorous and fun and games. During recording, there can be a lot of pressure to control the vibe of the room and bring out the best in the artist recording with all kinds of distractions around. With editing and mixing I sit alone in a room all day and play the same sound hundreds of times.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love when artists are able to trust me in their most authentic, vulnerable state when expressing themselves and creating their art. And when I can help them achieve their vision sonically it's incredibly rewarding.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will never take shortcuts and always give 100% to your project. I will also be honest with you about things you can improve to get closer to your goals.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid! I love the sound of analog, but the ability to recall mixes quickly is paramount. If you can create a setup where you utilize the best of both methods, that's the goal.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm always working on mixing projects. In addition I've recently started to help develop a couple artists with my production partner and it's so rewarding watch them grow!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Cliff Savage "Lone Wolf" album. I got the pleasure of mixing and mastering all the songs on that project and it was a blast! I'm excited for people to hear it. Cliff is very talented and hard working.
