No detail is too small.

I got into mixing for the same reason I got into editing and recording - I was obsessed with details.

I don’t mean I cared about details in the way that any artist does, I mean I was obsessed. Recording engineers would think we had “the take” long before I was satisfied. Bandmates could safely assume that if they noticed a problem with an edit, it was already in my notes. Mixing engineers would become frustrated when I kept requesting tweaks that I was certain would make a difference.

Over time, perfectionism (and feeling like a burden) led me to take over each part of the process. First, recording, where I could do as many takes as I wanted on my own time. Then, editing, where I could time and tune exactly as much as I wanted, and no more. And finally, mixing, where I could be sure that the guitars had an impact, the vocals weren’t too forward, and the snare was compressed to my liking.

I will always be ok with last-minute tweaks, no matter how minor you think they are. I understand wanting things a certain way and struggling to explain the vision you’ve had since the first demo. I will patiently make unlimited revisions until you are completely satisfied with your mix, because when I’m in your position, that’s exactly what I expect.

Recently, my mix of “Flow” by Compass & Cavern earned a top spot in KTCL’s Hometown for the Holidays competition.

  1. Review by Jeff T.

    In his bio, Will says he's into "details." That's why I contacted him. He meant what he said. He mixed a kind of thorny song of mine, and the mix was really good, but something didn't quite sit right with me--a stylistic choice--so I asked him about it. He had already anticipated it. He articulated to me how he wanted to tweak it, and he went back to work. Within a very short time, he'd conquered it.

    Give Will a try. He'll take your music as seriously as you do.

    Will has an excellent ear, deep passion and an obsession with detail. I loved how he handled my project, added new details I hadn’t perceived, and read my mind on problems or ideas I couldn’t quite articulate. His attention to detail is something to be admired, he kept making improvements even after I was happy, just because he cares about his work and making the project perfect.

    Get him on your project!!

  3. Review by Lavender Lane Production

    Will is an amazing musician, mixing engineer, and I consider him a dear friend and stand up human being.

    Will plays in professional high talent bands here in Denver. He is a passionate artist and intelligent professional in all aspects of the industry.

    I would not hesitate in handing off a song to Will knowing that it will be done to the highest standards and to the best of his abilities. The guy cares. I was the one to recommend he get on soundbetter because I know what he has to offer.

    10/10 would recommend
