So you are a professional or aspiring composer. You have studied diligently in order to become great at your craft. You have the compositional chops, the sample libraries, virtual instruments, you have your melody, your supporting counterpoint, all fine-tuned. You are sure that it's all so great that there is no way you won't be noticed as the next, greatest film composer of all time. There's just one problem. For some reason, even though you have done everything right. Even though you know your orchestration is solid, and you did everything correctly, your track just isn't the same as the tracks you listen to on iTunes or spotify, or wherever you listen to reference tracks. There is a difference, but you can't put your finger on it. You are a great composer, or maybe you aren't, but either way, maybe you've done all you can to learn the craft of composition, but you haven't gotten to, or don't care to get to the part, where the rest of the magic happens. Mixing.

Mixing is an art. It just is. Is it science as well? Yes, it is. But make no mistake, it is an art that I take great pride in.  Through 15+ years of being a composer for media, and from having owned and operated my own recording studio, Studio E, I have learned a great deal about the art of recording and mixing both.  I have mixed pop, rock, gospel, and film music. To me, mixing is every bit as essential as good writing and I have seen it appear as the weak link in many composer's work.  Don't forget that every time your favorite composer finishes the dubbing session, or finishes their mock-up for a film cue, that music, those tracks or stems, go to a mixing desk where they are then finished into a masterpiece.

If you are still working your way through EQs, compressors, reverbs, filters, etc, let me help. Give me a chance to show you what your work could sound like with the help of a professional mixing engineer in your corner.  I know sample libraries. I work with the best of them. I work with and use EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, Hollywood Diamond, Spitfire Symphonic, LASS, Symphobia, as well as the entire Native Instruments line, libraries from 8Dio, Soundiron, Heavyocity, Spectrasonics, and many MANY others.  I know how to combine different perspectives. I know how to bring together the different elements of a "hybrid score".  Let me help you bring your hard work and dedication to the next level.

I discuss rates on an individual basis, but I can guarantee you that I am very fair with them. I just like to get an idea of what I am going to be dealing with before I quote a price since the scope of our work as composers varies so much.  Shoot me a message on this site, VI-Control, or find me on Facebook and give me the details of what you are needing and let me help you graduate your work to the next level!
