Hello, my name is Ed Dulian and I've been mixing music for 20 years. I am also a musician and a songwriter. My goal for every project is to exceed expectations and help you realize your creative goals. I prefer to let the quality of my work speak for itself, so I welcome you to explore my mixes and demonstrations here, as well as on Soundcloud!
My services include:
Mixing, Editing, Vocal Comping and Tuning
Mixing: This is the time to fine tune your music. It's critical to have mixes that represent the intentions of the artist. My approach is to communicate with you and gather reference material before pulling up any tracks. I don't believe there is a "right" or "wrong" way in the mixing process. I consider the song to be the most important guide in making mix decisions. Separation is also a key component to having clarity and consistency between speakers, along with character and imagery choices.
Tuning: I have been tuning vocals for most of my 20 years. I do not quantize to pitch. I listen to each word or phrase and make tuning decisions by putting the vocal in the context of the music. I will carefully review any tuning changes to make sure they blend into the soundscape and remain transparent.
Editing: I edit rhythm for instrumentation with the same approach as tuning... transparency and care. The demands of the song and the artists vision are also necessary considerations and play a prominent role in my philosophy.
