I’m a full-time father, navigating this crazy, musical world, one knob twist at a time. I am a professional mix engineer with over 16 years of experience in the field. Specializing in Rock, Country, Pop and Contemporary Christian genres. I’d consider it a privilege to work on your next project!
***How To Prepare For Our Mix Session***
Please send individual tracks for each song, organized accordingly. Labeling tracks keeps things together and helps the mixing process run smoother (and faster)!
Please provide WAV/AIFF files in the highest sample rate available. Also send over the BPM if recorded to a click track. If the tracks were recorded using Studio One, feel free to send over the session files instead, as that is the main DAW I work out of. Upload to your favorite file sharing service, such as Dropbox, and send over the link.
Let me know how you envision your song sounding. If there is a certain effect you want, be sure to leave it off (compression or reverb), but send the track you came up with as an example. If you want to hear a certain guitar track on one side of the stereo spectrum, point that out. If you have a certain sound you are going for, be sure to include reference tracks. If you’re not sure what you want and want me to figure it all out, no problem! As always, if you have any questions throughout the mixing process, let me know.
Your mixes include two full revisions. This covers a professional mix in 24-bit WAV format, track tuning/timing adjustments, drum replacement, analog and plugin processing. Before I finalize the order, your mix will contain “drops” throughout the mix. The approved mix will be free of all white noise.
***My Journey… so far***
From a very young age, I was fascinated with recording and making my little basement set up in my parent’s house sound like the real deal. I remember reading articles about all this expensive gear, so I decided to buy into that philosophy and make a few big purchases. After a few weeks of frustration, I came to the realization that having expensive gear doesn’t give you great sounding records. Amazing songs, versatile musicians, and the ability to listen to all of that and somehow make sense of it all is key.
Fast forward 15 years….
I’ve worked with some of the most talented musicians on the planet, known and unknown. From every genre, including John Marlin (Granger Smith), Kyle Whalum (Kelly Clarkson), Hubert Payne (Little Big Town), Clint Wells (Matthew Mayfield), Brandon Autry (Chase Rice), Andy Gibson (Tanya Tucker) and many more. During those sessions, it was only about one thing – the song.
I’m ready to help you take your mix to the next level. Reviews are one thing, but actually working together rather than being told what your song should sound like is not my job. It’s your song, tell me what you wanna hear and we’ll make it happen!
