Mixing and Mastering

Stage Studio and Technology on SoundBetter

I have mixed songs for many bands and got very positive feedback, I use all Waves Audio plugins in Reaper.

I use Waves Audio Plugins in reaper to mix and master, I use completely transparent monitors to gain the best sound. I have my Tascam US16x08 interface running from a Allen and Heath SC Series Mixer with really nice EQs.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Stage Studio and Technology

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I was especially proud of working with a band called Tan.Trum, the mix just sounded inspiring, to me at least. "I was the mixer and mastering guy" as they put it

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Nothing at the moment in time

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Analogue and digital crossover. Analogue sounds amazing, but plugins are cheaper and you don't need massive racks of outboard gear when it all sits ona 2.5" HDD

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: I will promise to get the best mix possible with the tracks that I have been sent

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: Mixing people's art and getting a taste of their musicianship and overall feel for what they are playing

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: Q: When will it be finished and ready for mastering? A: I can give them to you now, but I haven't finished it perfectly to something I would enjoy putting our name to

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: Sitting down clicking a few buttons and sliding the mouse up and down a few times

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: Are the tracks bounced in WAV? What do you want the mix to sound like? (reference tracks)

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: Go with it, if you are not happy with a mix or a master then make constructive criticism, not argue with them as they will make it sound worse than it already is regardless how much you pay for it

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: Interface, PC, 4G Router to download plugins and midi instruments, Guitar, Speakers

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: Live sound and Mixing and Mastering in the studio, I have been doing this for 5 years now

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Efficient but not lazy

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: Toska, they have epic, tight sections and from nowhere they change your mood. They write emotional roller coasters (in a good way)

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: Make sure to add the compression or limiter to the trakcs before you ix so that the energy and vibe of the track isnt squashed and you have to mix the whole track again

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: Heavy metal or EDM

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Mixing drums and guitars and getting them to sit perfectly in a mix

  33. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  34. A: Energy, good sounds, epic feels

  35. Q: What's your typical work process?

  36. A: Import the tracks in the same reaper project, start mixing and making it sound good. But keeping the tracks within the same project keeps the sounds consistent without the need of finding the same sound and getting the faders in the same spot for every track.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: At the heart of the studio I have an Allen and Heath SC Series desk running perfectly in harmony with a Tascam US16X08 interface. I run Reaper with Waves Audio Plugins
