Former house engineer at Pogo Studio and current house engineer at Earth Analog. Relentless pursuit of getting the most out of every track that comes my way...from analog warmth and vibe, to digital clarity and sizzle, I take pride in making my clients happy. Proudly certified by Apple Digital Masters, and proud Audio Engineering Society member.
Over a decade of professional experience in analog and digital audio covering all genres. I love being part of the team and making the dream come true. Remote and attended mixing and mastering services available, happy to produce or critique if that's what the project calls for. Gear includes newest of the modern digital, to some of the best analog outboard hardware. I use my experiences as a musician and producer to find the heart of a song and try to convey as much energy and emotion as possible to the listener. I love cutting drum tracks...many years as a player and engineer, and gobs of vintage drum gear, put me in a unique situation to quickly turnaround great live drums for your project.

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.
