Mixing

What is Mixing? Once all of the instrument, vocal and electronic tracks have been recorded, the song is ready to be mixed. The mixing engineer sculpts the raw recordings into a clear, cohesive and powerful track. Tracks are recorded in-house, recorded elsewhere or a combination of both.

Who is Mixing? Hi Noah here. I believe that a mix begins when the song begins. Every decision after that, from the arrangement to the choice of who’s gonna play the accordion solo, becomes part of the mix, even if the artist doesn’t think about it in those terms. My job is to figure out the vibe and intention of the piece of music I am mixing, to highlight the key elements of the arrangement, and to create a powerful, compelling and dynamic mix.
