Mixing is the process that highlights the best elements of a song. My philosophy as a mixing engineer is to breathe life into your recorded material and create the exact sound you have in mind. The importance of good mixing is crucial. A poor mix can turn an excellent song into an unlistenable cacophony, burying certain key elements.
On the other hand, good mixing is what encourages people to listen to your song over and over again, discovering new details with each play. It also enhances the emotional impact of your recorded performance and your creative vision.
Mastering is the final process in music production. It involves optimizing audio mixes to ensure consistent and professional sound quality. This includes adjusting sound levels, correcting flaws, creating transitions between songs, and adding metadata. The goal is to make the music sound well-balanced and clear on various playback systems, ensuring an optimal listening experience for the audience.
