MIXING //
I can get your song radio ready. I do all means necessary to improve the mix. I can tighten up vocals and tune if the job calls for it. I can help make your drums punch and groove. I am able to give each sound their distinct place in the mix not just with volume but also width and depth in the stereo field along with any FX processing. I use a mixture of in the box plug ins with out the box hardware and summing. If a song calls for external processing I have many tools at my disposal to add hardware flavor. My years of experience as a producer and DJ provides me with a skillset that many mix engineers don't have. I strive for a clear, balanced and emotional mix.

PRODUCTION //
If you have a song that needs production work I can jump in at any point. Whether you only have lyrics or parts recorded already, I can help take your song to the next level. I work with Ableton for productions but also can work in ProTools. I can program drums and add sounds (synths, acoustic instruments, samples). I will follow all the way through the mixing and mastering phases until the song is done.

I have experience in all electronic genres, house, deep house, tech house, techno, pop, hip hop, r&b, jazz, funk and soul.

    Yet another fantastic mixing experience working with Ken. For this track, we needed an expedited mix on very short order in order to meet a label deadline - which Ken delivered with his characteristic sharp ear, creativity, professionalism, and good humor. Highly recommended, and will be continuing to work with Ken on future mixes as well.

I greatly appreciate the way he listens to feedback on the initial cut of the mix and does such a great job adapting and thinking creatively to address any issues, arriving at a final product that fully realized the artistic intention of the piece. Thanks Ken!

    This one was a while in the making, and Ken pulled through as always with an exceptional result. The track required us to iterate back and forth a bit to arrive at the correct sound, and Ken was a consummate professional throughout the entire process. His wisdom, skill, and intuition with the music was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Ken for another great mix!

    This job was for mixing a special track, and Ken went above and beyond as always. In working with Ken, it is clear he is a true perfectionist and someone who is constantly looking for opportunities where he can do better and produce better results in his craft. Here, he took a slightly different approach than he had mixing my previous tracks (which all came out great as well) - and it really paid off. The resulting mix took my intent and augmented it to a higher level. Bravo Ken.

    For our second project together, Ken continued to deliver far above and beyond expectations - providing a flawless mix and another very positive collaborative experience. Ken exhibited incredible patience, attention to detail, and an acute ear, in conjunction with best-in-class mixing techniques/tools to deliver a truly remarkable final product. Can't say enough good things about the experience - he is a gem.

    Ken truly went above and beyond with this mix (my first working with him), delivering a final product that is even better sounding than I might have imagined possible! Working with Ken has been a pleasure. He is an incredibly patient, detail- and results-oriented, quality-focused practitioner of his craft. His communication was flawless, and he really worked hard to understand my vision and help us to achieve it sonically. Based on this process, I will be working with Ken on all my mixes.

    I've been under heavy time pressure to complete an album. The Masters weren't working in various open air devices. There was a problem with the mixes that I didn't realize. Ken Chow did a remarkable job, quickly and very precisely identifying problems in my mix and solving them. I'm so pleased with my mixes now and so is the label and producers. Excited for mastering and Release! Check him out if you need some pro work done!!
