Remote Mixing/Session Guitar

Ian Elliot on SoundBetter

I offer experienced mixing for clients on a serious budget. I specialize in mixing DIY/lo-fi recordings to a polished and release-ready state.

Full Audient setup: ASP880 ADAT preamp and an ID14 interface

Presonus Eris monitors, Yamaha HS5s, and Sennheiser HD600s

ProTools perpetual license with tons of plugins (Slate Digital, Waves, Melodyne, etc)

Access to Superior Drummer for drum replacement/reinforcement.

Izotope RX for audio cleanup and post-production.

I am what I consider a "professional hobbyist." I learned recording techniques at South Plains Community College's associate's degree program. I have worked out of several professional studios and have several main engineer credits on independent bands. My home studio is well-equipped with gear that I know how to use effectively; while not the most high-end, I get good results.

My price reflects "pick 2/3: cheap, good, and fast." I am not fast, but I will do a good job for a small budget. I charge by track instead of hour: most tracks will take 4-10 hours of attention, with breaks to avoid ear fatigue and to test on different sound systems.

Mastering: I do "rough" mastering that seems to suit most small independent artists just fine. I am not a professional mastering studio but I have mastered in those environments and understand the techniques enough to save you money on professional work.
