Clean, precise, detail oriented engineer who's goal is to go beyond your expectations and to make you smile when you first press play. No drama, no gimmicks, the way making music should be!
Mixing - I impart my own sound onto a mix which has been described as clean and huge. I have mixed and mastered artists from around the country and locally through my residential recording studio.
My mix process:
1) Edit and gain stage all audio to ensure integrity of audio quality entering plugin's and equipment.
2) Clean any audio anomalies such as: mouth clicks, click track bleed, breaths, buzzing guitars, etc.
3) Tune vocals and trigger high quality, custom made drum samples (both of which are upon request and at no additional cost)
4) Start mixing
