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.

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!!
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
