True to the source material and easy to work with.
I have over ten years of experience in mixing and music production in various genres, mainly rock and metal. I try to stay true to the source material and let it guide the mixing process. That said, I'm a believer that there's a limited number of ways to properly mix any given song. I try to figure out what each instrument is trying to be and then help it. So far this approach has been effective.

Interview with PaperThin Studio
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andrew Scheps and Adam 'Nolly' Getgood are two of my favorites.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I help it be the song I feel it was intended to be. I try not to interfere with that.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Attention to detail.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I feel more comfortable with live instruments as opposed to synths, drum beats, etc.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It has to be the idea that a mix engineer can make a masterpiece out of a poorly composed, badly arranged and recorded track. Doesn't happen.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Recording – analog, mixing – digital. This was you get the best of both worlds without having to rob a bank.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's a simple setup really – a treated room and several pairs of speakers. I have a few gear pieces for guitar recording and re-amping.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Get familiar with the material, get a feel for it.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't read interviews, go check out their work instead!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually ask for reference tracks, and if auto-tune/drum-triggering/note quantization are acceptable.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love music and I love working with it, simple as that.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: It'll be fun.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the time of typing this I'm working on an album by a local singer/songwriter. My job is to re-record some guitars, clean up the tracks, and mix.
