James has been an exceptional asset to our indie rock band - demonstrating patience, professionalism, great communication, and a great ear all throughout many mixes and masters. We've mixed and mastered two albums with him now, and his skills shaping our ideas into reality have often blown us away. Couldn't recommend James enough!
Our indie rock band worked with James on mixing and mastering an EP. We were blown away by his tremendous talent, patience, and the ease with which we could work with him. Even when we gave complex requests for tracks that bordered on production, James went above and beyond in the work for us, often not just meeting expectations, but elevating the heights our material could hit. We can’t recommend James enough! He’s absolutely fantastic, and we truly hope to work with him again.
James is absolutely fantastic! Our indie rock band hired him for mixing a single. His work absolutely blew us away. We had some pretty complex requests, and James handled them all with patience, professionalism, and, most of all, stellar skill. We were all super impressed with the depth, clarity, and energy he brought to our project. He also added some innovative ideas to the song. We were so impressed that we're hiring him for a whole EP. Highly recommend!
I've done over a dozen projects with James and he is a pleasure to work with and does great work. Two thumbs up. Will work with him again.
James does fantastic work. The crispness, clarity and warmth he brought to my project are more than I could have imagined. He is super friendly, easy to work with, and humble about his ideas and input - all of which were so smart and exactly what the project needed. Highly recommended!
Been working James for over a year on more than a dozen jobs. He's always quick and responsive, listens and acts on feedback graciously and intelligently and does great work.

James is timely and does great work, I'd definitely recommend working with him
Superb experience - (Returning Client)
I was presented a very challenging task at remixing 17 year old masters. James was quick to respond to my inquiry, clearly understood the scope of the job, was bang on with his quote and time estimate. My client is happy, therefor I am happy. James is very friendly, approachable, and his engineering talents speak volumes (pun intended).
Great communication and a great final product - Thanks James!
Great timely work. Will hire again. James took on an unorthodox editing job and was really easy to work with and accommodating.
5 stars, What a great guy. I was specifically needing mixing services. Going in blind to this service I was skeptical.
Personality wise James was a perfect fit.
we connected easily with technical language. From that it was really easy to transforming my wishes to reality.
I've been working on my album for quite some time and am very very picky. James was able to work with me on very specific needs without complaint!
I highly recommend reaching out to him and discussing your project.
We've been working with James for years. He is friendly, calming, and professional. He has a great ear and the trust we have for him allows us to focus on our music. Looking forward to working with James on many more projects.
James has done wonders with my music projects, and puts in extreme precision and detail! Looking forward to working with him on new projects in the near future!
James is a true professional with an extremely diverse skill set and breadth of knowledge. My music has evolved to places I never thought it could thanks to his knowledge and willingness to not only follow, but help refine my vision.
Interview with James Treichler
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I aim to bring the artist's vision to life. I want to be an ambassador and teammate, so I fight to make the project live up to its greatest potential.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Both in mixing and mastering, I can run fully analog or digital, but tend to utilize the best of both... my go-to is using the mixing and editing capabilities of a digital workflow to fine tune, then use my analog summing and outboard gear for a touch of mojo and cohesion.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My typical setup includes Barefoot MicroMain27 Gen2 monitors, a couple x8 Universal Audio Apollos, a Dangerous Compressor and 2-Bus+, Two Rupert Neve Shelford Channels, and a Retro 176 Tube Compressor
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I care about the artistry, emotion, and purpose of a song, and I love helping my clients achieve the most they can out of a song and performance. When mixing and mastering, I try to draw the listener in and deliver the greatest impact. When producing/editing/arranging, I strive to make the message of the song and performance as strong as possible.
