Hybrid Mixing

MasterSound Studio on SoundBetter

Out of the box analog and digital hybrid mixing is my niche.

With 32 years professionally in the studio business, including major label work in the 1990s, I combine the analog and digital worlds for hybrid mixes full of saturation, clarity, and warmth. Depending on the sound of the tracks I receive, I often transfer some to my 2" tape machine and then back to Pro Tools before the mix begins. Most of the processing I do is done out of the box, as your tracks are routed through my analog console and outboard gear, before returning to Pro Tools ...plugins are occasionally used, but sparingly, since I have much of the real gear that they are emulating and I want my mixes to sound different since more mix engineers these days are understandably opting for 100% mixing in the box for the sake of simplicity. I do not use somebody else's facilities, rather I own my own commercial studio, including the building and everything in it.
I have mixed all kinds of music, but my process and technique are most noticeable with real and natural, well-recorded instruments, such as heard in various singer/songwriter, folk, rock, acoustic/pop, and jazz music styles.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
