Music & Audio Mixing
Mixing music can often be wrongly perceived as a technical witchcraft. Professional music mixers behold the process as a creative practice married to an intuitive technical knowhow and workflow. Dan at Rodel Sound approaches every mix with the same mindset coupled with his common sense approach to musicality.
Mixing is all about working with creative concepts whilst ensuring the feel and vision for the production's trajectory is confirmed throughout the process. A great mix doesn't just sound great sonically, it also has to feel united to the song and artist behind the production.
Mixing your music
Nowadays musicians have very easy access to recording software and equipment. What's good about this growth in self producing is that it enables independent musicians to create their own multi track recordings in the comfort of their own surroundings and at their own pace.
The problem with this modern way of recording is that artists can often wear too many hats. Think about it; a songwriter who creates their own recordings are usually the songwriter, arranger, performer, editor, tracking engineer, producer and mixer. The mix is the process that confirms all the creative decisions made along the songwriting and production stages. Having your production mixed by the right person will enable the music to reach the level of quality you set out to achieve at the start of the production.
