Chris Lord-Alge trained Mixer.
So, you've busted your ass recording your tunes and now you're looking for a mix engineer to make them sound badass! You have been online and have seen cheap options, you've seen expensive options and all of them promise the same "Pro" sound. So what gives? What is the difference? In a word, Everything.
You see, the cheap options are likely using presets that give them their desired result, but also gives them a generic sound. Maybe that's OK, but you didn't spend a lifetime practicing and pouring your heart and soul into this music to get "OK". You want these songs to BLOW YOU AWAY!!! You want to be proud of them when you sell them at your merch booth and hear them on the radio!!
You want them to connect you with your audience. To make the listener feel what you feel and hear what's in your head. It's all we have as musicians; to express ourselves and connect with people.
I'm a musician as well. I've been in bands and I know how hard money is to come by these days. I also remember the first time I heard my music mixed by a pro. I was ECSTATIC!! The life and depth it had was UNREAL!!!
I wanted to share that feeling with the world!!!! So, I have dedicated the last decade of my life to making bad ass mixes for other people so they can have the same excitement and joy I did.
