Defining and Refining sound waves.
Germano Studios New York // NÜEL Productions

What is mixing?
So you've finished recording your song and the production sounds great. Time to send it off for mixing. Would it surprise you if I told you the record is only half finished after its production stage? Mixing is such an integral part of the production process, artist often underestimate it's value. A mix engineer LITERALLY has the ability to make or break your record - there's a reason why the top mix engineers charge up to ten thousand dollars per song! It is our job as mix engineers to pay attention to the most minute details, and bring out the most optimal sonic sounding recording possible.

Why do people work with me?
Mixing is far more than just balancing faders and setting pan pots. It combines both technical and creative skills. Ultimately, it's about defining sonic colors. As a musician I understand taste, and as an engineer, I know how to achieve it. It is my obsession to ensure your record sounds sonically competitive with the elite. Some of my favorite mix engineers are Andrew Scheps (Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beyonce), Jaycen Joshua (Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry), Vance Powell (Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, Chris Stapleton), and Serban Ghenea (Jessie J, One Republic, Maroon 5). I mention these names because these mix engineers for me, understand the single most important thing in any record - giving the record its own unique flav

    Immanuel deserves more credit for the work he does. His mixes are top notch, he has an incredible set of ears. If you have an opportunity to work with him or have him work for you, take it!

    Manny’s mixes are undoubtedly great in every technical sense, however what really sets his apart from many other mixing engineers is his ability to add great personality to his tracks.
    I would recommend Manny to any artist looking for an undeniably professional, easy to work with, and talented mixing and recording engineer.

    Manny is the MAN. Such a pleasure to work with. His choices as a mix engineer are creative, skillful and precise. His greatest asset which every engineer should have is his ears.

    Working with Immanuel is always a great experience. His mixes are clear and consise, without being overly crushed or sweetened like most mixes today tend to be.

    I had the pleasure of working with Manny (Immanuel) and all I have to say is the work effort, the skill, the color, and the passion is all there. Manny is still very young , he has the potential to get a lot better at his craft and develop his artistry. It's only the beginning ..........................

    Working with Immanuel was a great experience. He's got a great set of ears and he knows what kind of sound/mix exactly I'm looking for. He is also extremely easy to work with and he has a brilliant creative mind.

    If you are fortunate enough to have Immanuel work with you, make it happen- He is a great guy.

Interview with Immanuel Manny Park

What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Do the research and invest! Seriously, don't underestimate the impact the mix engineer can have on the success of a record. Get the best engineer your budget can afford.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Paul J Falcone or Matt Sim
Analog or digital and why?
Digital! Work flow and limitless creativity. A sonic compromise? Maybe. But it's only getting better with time.
What do you like most about your job?
I love that I get to combine both creative and technical skills. It's a moment when my nerdy side can feel kind of cool :)
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
We simply pan pots and set levels...
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Telefunken ELA M251, Apogee Duet, Neve 1073, Sennheiser HD600 and an old Martin acoustic.
How would you describe your style?
Organic, Raw, Dirty.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
John Mayer, no doubt. He is the reason I started music, and am doing what I am doing today.
Can you share one music production tip?
Take a break! It's amazing how small amounts of time away can actually be more beneficial than trying to aimlessly push through a mix.
What's your typical work process?
I like to listen to the track a couple times before touching anything or making my mind about anything. This helps me identify what I need to bring out in the song to best capture its vibe. Then I tackle the most important instruments in the song and ensure that they reflect the vibe of that initial vision. Then I tweak the instruments that sit second and third in the priority list to support those important elements. Next I like to bounce the song as a first pass, come back and listen to the song. Here is where I discover things that still bother me and I tackle those elements until I am satisfied. Now I'll usually send a bounce to the client and go back to make necessary revisions if need be.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I'm always inspired by daring individuals who push the envelope using unconventional methods to achieve new sounds.
