SOUND ENGINEER & AUDIO MIXING

A sound engineer is also known as a song mixer, audio mixer and sound technician and we do this as part of the production of music.

Decades of sound engineering has gained perfectionism in making our production chart ready. We always ensure that we have the latest tools to improve the speed and warmth ofour mixes.

We use equipment that makes audio sound the best it can with our combination of old school analog and high end digital equipment. In a nutshell these are used to ensure warmth, punchiness and clarity are applied to music whilst we sound engineer.

Audio Mixing Techniques

We use original analog equipment from the 1960s that transparently saturate vocals, bass, guitar, keyboard, strings or horns to cut through the mix.

All songs are different and require both similar and individual approaches in audio mixing.
