I have mixed albums for a long list of artists during my fascinatingly long and on going career.I manage to mix in a wide variety of styles to give the artists the perfect match between their vision of how they want to sound and the end result. I do it with my own unique way to ensure a perfect outcome at a very affordable price.
In 2001 I established MixFarm, a well equipped mixing studio, in a great location among the green fields of the Sharon area of Israel. Working with his outstanding talent and gear I get to produce and mix albums for very satisfied clients all over the globe. Using the internet and my caring attitude, a lot of musician from all over the world just simply send me their track and get back the perfect mix, on time, while I do my best, as always, mainly knocking out hit after hit. I would be more than happy to include you with this unique experience.

Interview with Simon Vinestock
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Either. The end product will sound the same, its just which tool is most suitable to provide it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Satisfactory guaranteed or your money back.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: When the artist gets to hear their creation sounding like an end product and you know that they are really buzzed about it, that gives me a huge rush.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q : Is that your final price? A : Make me an offer :-)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That kids in a bedroom with a PC and a half decent sound card can compete with my experience.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How happy are you with the rough mixes and how far do you want to go with the final mixes?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Cheap mixing engineers will not supply the goods. The net is flooded with cheap options but the mixing stage is not the right place to economize. It is far too crucial to get a half hearted job done.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My computer and monitors. That's all I need :-)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as an assistant engineer, became house engineer and then went freelance. I've been doing this for 32 years.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Delivering punchy energetic mixes that hit the spot just right.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: When mixing a song I fist listen to what is the element that is going to get the listener hooked and enhance it. All the rest is just ear candy :-)
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pro Tools HD 3 Accel System. Fully loaded with nearly every plug-in available. Adam S3A monitors.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andy Wallace & Rich Costey
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
