won 18th puremix mixing contest
i hope to meet the artists and producers who has the passion and love for the music, and help them to make their music sound good. the ultimate goal is to shape the sounds until it reaches a point where the listeners could stop thinking about the sonics and just feel the music.
when i receive the multi-tracks to mix, i start mixing it until the mix sounds balanced and has as much energy and excitement as it can have, and when it's finished, i'll send it to my client. and the client will listen to it, make some notes about the mix, and we can do the revision.
i use live streaming service which has a few seconds of latency, so my client can listen to it as i make changes in my pro tools session almost in realtime. by working this way, i can make the changes much closer to what client wants, and also it allows to do very specific things together like vocal tune or time adjustment, which would be hard to do by sending files and comments.
mixing can be seen as a craft and an art form on its own, but more importantly is to serve the music which means, it should be a collaborative process between the engineer and the artist in order to get the best result by having a better understanding of the song and the ways to execute the ideas, so i'll try my best to be good at both aspects.

Isaac's sounds are moderate, unselfish and deep. He knows the point of music.
When main instruments or vocal come in, the other parts support it naturally.
So i can notice deeply what artist says to us. Like musical stage, i can see what elements is lead role or sub role. His work of sounds is spotlight to fall into music.
I love his sounds.
