25 years in the music industry. Honest and reliable. Friendly and easy going. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Hello I am Jimmy, I am a Mixing Engineer in the Boston area with 25 years of experience. Making music has been a passion of mine since I picked up my first guitar at the age of six. Mixing music is more than just a job it has been a life long passion. The best part about what I do is not just doing a good job technically but, also to have an emotional connection to a song. I believe that it shows in the end product. I take every job seriously big or small. I can guarantee that each project that I work on is to the best of my ability I my name would be associated with it.
I am offering two free revisions for each song. I will be sending you a wav and mp3 per song. I will also include an instrumental track upon request at no additional costs.

Hired Jim for several years in a row to do live sound for several community events including a two-day live music festival. He's also helping me out with location sound recording for an independent documentary film. Three things about Jim: He delivers MORE than he promises. He genuinely cares about his clients. He will make your project that much easier...and sound that much better.
He brought our sound to the next level! Jim is extremely easy to work with and is professional. Highly recommended!

Interview with Jimmy
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I keep up to date with the latest version of Pro Tools which is now called 2018. Because of how really good plugins sound from UAD and Waves I mix solely "In the Box".
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to first listen to an songs rough mix a few times to get a general feeling of a song and to get some sort of attachment to it for inspiration. Then I start to do all the boring stuff to get it out of the way. Such as labeling, color coding and organizing tracks. the I start listening to each track individually and clean them up by strip silencing to get rid of unwanted background noises and add cross fades to the edit points.then the real fun begins... I typically start working on the drums first. I listen to the overhead mics and center the snare and time align the snare and kick to make sure there is no phase issues. Next I will listen to the Bass in relation to the Kick drum and again listening for low end frequencies competing with each other. Then I start to add in the guitars and other instruments. Finally, will work on Lead vocals and backing vocals. Once I have the mix where I want it I then start thinking about Panning and FX and automation. Lastly, I would give it a few more listens and think about how I can make it even better tweaking here and there until I feel satisfied that I can give it my stamp of approval
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Inspiration and emotions. I listen to music and tried to get inspired the lyrics the excitement the mood or even how clean and natural something sounds.When I listen to music I want to feel something it's what makes me human.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Time align the drums and don't be afraid to try something new and to experiment.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I am never doing the same thing and I'm constantly learning.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Big or small you will always get my best effort working on your project.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently Producing and Mixing an EP for a Hard Rock/Grunge Metal meets Rap band out of RI. Also, working as a field recorder on a documentary in Maine.
