PRODUCING, RECORDING, SONG WRITTING & ARRANGEMENT

Working with a producer is like having your own architect and team to create the plan of your dream house and built it.  You, as a band or solo artist, bring the puzzle pieces and my role as a producer is to make them fit together nicely in a way that each aspects and details of your songs will shine. In other word, I will bring your song to a whole new level. This can be done by tweaking a vocal melody, improving your lyrics or fixing the structure of your song or even rewriting some parts of the song.

Sometimes bands and artists get lost in details that don’t matter to the audience and they lose sight of the big picture and what is really important. People love music they can relate and connect to.  Some people might like a song because of a catchy theme lead guitar, because of the lyrics, because of the production, etc. I’m here for you to make your songs work and bring an enhanced vision of your initial idea  to tape and find what will make your songs stand out of the others.

MIXING

Audio mixing is the process by which a multitude of recorded sounds are combined into one or more channels, the most common combination being two channels in stereo. In my book, mixing is the part which brings out the best in a song. My philosophy as a mixer is to bring to life your recorded material and create the exact sound you have in mind. The importance of a good mix is crucial. A bad mix can turn a great song into an unlistenable cacophony, leaving certain key elements buried. A good mix is what makes people listen to your song over and over again while discovering new details with every new listen. It also enhances the emotional impact of your recorded performance as well as consolidates your creative vision.

I mix hundreds of songs each year from all over the world and my list of clients includes artists from Canada, the United States, France, England, Sweden, Germany, Romania, Italy, India, Istanbul, Australia and many other countries. Once the recording and editing is complete, clients send all the individual tracks and a rough mix to use as a reference. This can be done by FTP, DVD or any free online file sharing services (YouSendIt, WeTransfer, Google Drive). Once I received the files, I start mixing the songs and I send them once the mixing is completed. Then, if the clients want some modifications to be made, we discuss of what needs to be done and I’ll send a new revision of the mix. I always make sure the clients are 100% satisfied of the final mix and the songs sound the best they can.

The price per song depends on some factors such as the number of tracks, the length of the song, the quality of the source track, how many songs need to be mixed, etc.To get a precise quotation, please send me an email using the contact section and I’ll quickly get back to you.

MASTERING

The mastering process allows you to perform final adjustments on your stereo mixdown. Some adjustments are made to improve a particular song’s sonic quality. A good mastering engineer brings a new perspective to your song or album. When you are in the midst of recording your project, you will concentrate on one song at a time. The result is that your mixes will contain subtle differences: the peak levels will be slightly different; the EQs for each song are different, etc.

As a mastering engineer, I will look at the album as a whole, and try to bring unity. My goal is to achieve a consistent sound and to make it sound the way you want on any home stereo system. I will also be able to raise the overall level so that your CD is as “hot” as any major label release with as fewer artifacts as possible.
