• Mixing Madness!

    In a fit of what can only be described as ‘free time’, I managed to completely mix the new album . . . in one day! Well, when I say mix, I mean I created a static mix of each song – so, nothing but panning and basic volume levels applied: no effects or automation.…

    It’s been a while since I posted an update regarding the new albums! As of now, though, I’m very pleased to report that I have completed the mixing of 80% of the songs and they are sounding fantastic. I always find mixing the most troublesome part of the whole recording process as you need to…
