Mixing Talk / Re: I need a Quick MIX fast
« on: June 30, 2015, 05:05:09 PM »
Hey DMZ - I do happen to have some space in my schedule this week, so mixing 3 songs by Saturday should be able to be done.  If you'd like to discuss a little more, you can email me - 

Good deal.  I'm glad it's working out for you.  Hopefully those happy customers become REPEAT customers. :)

Oh, I understand the marketing end. It's the Groupon theory - not designed to increase revenue, but rather buying customers. Like I said, I'm curious to see how it works out for you, because I've been tempted to do things like that also.

Can I throw you $50 and keep the 10 songs for when I need them? Lol.

But seriously, I'm curious how this works out for you guys - it seems like going this route isn't going to keep the lights on.

I'm also having troubles replying to a PM. Firefox just says "Connecting" and it hangs forever.

In case it matters, I'm using Firefox 24.0 with Mac OSX Mountain Lion.

Same problem here :_(

Me as well, but the message does actually go through.

But is it free app?

I think there's a free version in addition to the paid.

Audition Mixoffs / Re: Hello everybody! Also, an audition?

Great song - has a nice laid-back feel to it.

I sent you a PM, but if you did not receive it feel free to email me.  I put together a mix of this to use as an example for you.

I think skills are still the key (and having some credits, to reel in clients) but the tech side is getting pretty flat. Many really good mixers work in the box, with some decent monitors at home. They go into the big room for finishing touches, maybe, but most of the work they do in their place. The room is treated, of course, but nothing too spectacular.

That said, I think that the software tools are getting better and better, and that lowers the barriers to entry. A good musician, with a good ear and patience can get a very good mix of his tracks at home. Maybe someone with years of experience would get a better mix, with more magic, more 'stunts' and so on, but to the end listener, the home mix may be good enough, especially if they're not after radio play, etc.

Selling home recordists on the idea that they can benefit from a pro mix is where our business is at, for the most part. Trying to get big money gigs is probably not realistic, unless you've already got a hit or two under your belt.

Working a nice studio has some advantages for me, though (having done a remote thing for the past 9 years,) the controlled environment means I can get sounds fast, and know what I'm hearing. And just having a separate control room is nice sometimes. Being in the room with the band is good, too, but makes it harder to fine tune things while tracking.

Agreed. Except we're talking about tracking. Tracking (to me) is all about good kit in a good room, in front of great performances. I can track a full band faster, with better results, 99 times out if 100,in a studio than on location - be that location a parking garage or a half-treated room.

Good enough for me. Better than what they had back when they only used 4 tracks to record with.

An mbox is not higher quality than the ssl in abby road.

I didn't say there aren't lousy studios. I said that bedroom recordings aren't as good as a professional working in a quality room with good kit.

I've never heard your mixes, so I don't know anything about your work. Most studios hire themselves put by the hour if you want to mix in them, though....
