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 grooving mix.

MASTERING //
I can take your mix and master it to the appropriate loudness to compete with commercially released music. I use hardware/software. I can stem master as well if you feel your mix needs a little help. (up to 8 stereo stems, please inquire for extra cost) Depending how involved I am in mixing/production I will defer mastering to another mastering engineer for a fresh perspective.

    I hired Ken to mix and master a song for me. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. First of all great communication and process of interaction while he was mixing the project. Very knowledgeable and his mixing skills are amongst the sharpest in the game. I highly recommend Ken if you have a project which needs to be mixed/mastered. He is now my go to engineer!

    I could not have asked for a better engineer to mix and master my track. I was referred to Ken by several friends, and can understand why he has become their engineer of choice -- Ken is a technical wizard, understands how to deliver your specific vision for your track, and is a pleasure to work with. He took every piece of feedback in stride and was able to refine my track to the exact sound I was looking for, and I'm extremely happy with the end result. Thank you, Ken! Until next time!

    Ken is an awesome dude! Very professional, very prompt, and was very driven to get the track right. He will go above and beyond the call of duty. If we weren't in the middle of a global pandemic I would've definitely grabbed a beer with the guy for his hard work. Ken is the man, let him work his magic.

    Ken is the man! Excellent work on a house track I produced and he helped a ton on the mix and the master sounds mint. Highly recommend his services as he has extreme attention to detail and feedback and really understands the mind of a producer and each project as a whole since he is a producing artist himself. Ken's got the chops and will make your sound and ideas clear and bang.

    Ken is a mixing genius! He was able to take my hastily-recorded track and make it sound like a professionally recorded song. From my experience, he has the versatility to mix any genre. He's extremely knowledgeable, has a finely-tuned ear and knows how to turn up the "sound fantastic" knob. I can't wait to continue working with him on my future projects.

    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.

    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.

    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!!
