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)
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.
