  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: Over the top performance necessity. I push artists to have the best recordings as possible so we can have a great mix and even better master . I make the process easy so that your confident in your next song or project or this project . When you can just sit back, relax and create YOUR art YOUR way and I bring it to industry standard that’s what I bring to a song the industry itself.

  23. Q: What's your typical work process?

  24. A: Listen to reference or beat . Open pro tools + find tempo + find key. Load the beat into the session if we are doing a recording session or I load the stems into the session if we are doing mixing. This is where I can be as transparent about pricing with mixing as I can be. Once the stems are all loaded into the pro tools session I organize the tracks by category (Hook, Verse one and two, Dubs/backing tracks and adlibs) once the tracks are organized by category I can now begin mixing (and this order goes for recording as well) I start with whatever the song begins with usually the hook I first clean up the vocals and bring out more clarity , then I move to dynamics , i use compressors , limiters and gates all together to get you industry quality levels and clarity . Depending on your genre/Vocal tone I will use certain amounts of reverb , delay no mix is the same and I have had a lot of different sounds on my plate.
