Mixing & Mastering (Mixtering)

Edward Vinatea Audio on SoundBetter

Working with artists of the likes of Cindy Blackman Santana, John Davidson, Shirley Alston Reeves (The Shirelles), Amber, Geri King and many more, Edward's clients have received 3 Grammy nominations. As a composer-mixing engineer, EV has worked with producers of the likes of Jerry Kasenetz, Jeff Katz and various record production companies.

Mixtering combines mixing and mastering in one single processing environment. A mixtering engineer can be referred to as someone who mixes and masters audio music for a living using a mixing console, or a mastering deck, usually in combination of a multi-track reel to reel tape system, or a digital work station.

Mixtering engineers would normally work directly with all the elements of a mix or audio tracks, but the actual recording all of tracks (or tracking) may also be included in pre-production, production and post-production stages.

There are mainly 2 types of mixtering:
Mixtering (tracks or stems)
Production Mixtering

Mixtering (basic): You send your audio tracks off to a mixing or a mastering engineer to do both, mix & master your music.

Production Mixtering: All aspects of music production; composing, arranging, programming (e.g. midi), editing, tracking (recording), mixing and mastering are done in the same place.

While arguably, adding mastering process at the end of any mixing job can make it seem like 'mixtering', the musical mind set and audio focus does not. Production mixtering is the most absolute technical control of recording.

Edward Vinatea's studio is located in Queens, New York City and is a mixtering pioneer doing audio since 1984.

  • What is Mastering?Sep 23, 2015

    Mastering, also known as ‘pre-mastering’, is the process of optimizing all individual frequency levels to meet ‘industry standards’. It guarantees your final product will translate on all playback systems {sound accurate, thus great}, and not just in the studio where it was recorded.
