Your songs deserve a killer mix. You put your heart and soul into writing amazing songs. The final mix should let your fans hear that passion, without letting anything get in the way. I want to highlight what makes your music unique, and make sure you put your best foot forward when presenting it to the world.
I have been recording and mixing for over ten years, and I know what it takes to get a great, clear sounding mix. I have extensive experience in rock, punk, and metal, and I love branching out into new styles and genres.
My approach to mixing is grounded in the basics, while finding ways to experiment with new techniques to fulfill the artist's vision of a song.

Interview with Elijah Judd
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: There's nothing wrong with loving a great piece of analog gear, but the convenience and adaptability of digital tools is unbeatable. Ultimately though, it's not about the tools, it's how you use them.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: When I'm working on a project, I am laser focused on making it perfect. I will eat, sleep, and breathe those tracks until they are exactly what you envisioned.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Connecting with other musicians! I get to talk shop with people who have the same passion for music that I do, and I constantly get exposed to new music I would never hear otherwise.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have a clear idea of what you want the end result to sound like, and provide some examples if possible. I'm here to fulfill your vision, and that's much easier when you point me in the right direction.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I focus on the basics, but I'm ready to utilize every tool at my disposal to bring out what makes a song unique.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Check your gain staging. We're long past the days of cranking the volume of each track to compete with the noise floor, so turn it down a bit and find the sweet spot.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I find myself most often mixing hard rock and metal, but I love getting to change things up with genres like indie rock, pop-punk, even folk rock.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm passionate about zeroing in on the heart of the song, and highlighting it in a pleasing, musical way that captures the essence of what the artist is trying to get across.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start by listening to a song once without touching anything to get a feel for it. Then I'll get the levels and pans where I want them and dive into shaping the eq, compression, and other effects to get "the sound." Then I'll tweak the automation throughout the song to give it some extra life and energy.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work 100% "in the box," focusing on the basics and using effects and analog emulation tastefully to enchance a track to its full potential.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: So many! Metallica got me into music and being a musician. Andrew Scheps is a brilliant engineer. Anyone with a passion for music pushes me to go further and expand my skills.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mix and master a variety of projects, from single songs to full albums.
