Why you should remember the forgotten roll of the mix engineer…

11 Nov

With a little help…

“People seem to be happy with the concept that a Mastering Engineer is a new fresh pair of ears that can bring perspective to your mix. They also seem happy with the concept that the Mastering Engineers experience and equipment is worth paying for. This can also apply to mixing, but seems to be ignored, maybe you are too close to the song to have perspective or maybe you’re a great arranger/writer but really can’t mix. I’ve already stated that mastering is not magical panacea for a bad mix. You would be surprised that a lot of really experienced mix engineers working out of compact but well equipped rooms are very affordable these days.”
