Mix Therapy

Thanks for checking out this page.  Here is a little description of what Mix Therapy is about:

Have you found yourself struggling with mixes but can’t seem to figure out why?  Do you get stuck in the ‘leaves’, forgetting to look at the ‘forest’?  Do you know why you are using certain tools or approaches, or are you doing them because you saw someone else use them? 

My goal with Mix Therapy is to help you get over these stumbling blocks, use your tools to get the most out of your mixes, and to help you think about and understand why you are making the choices you are making in your mixing process.

We’ll do this through a live, interactive process using Skype and an audio transmission plugin that will work in any DAW.  I’ll be listening to you and your audio in real time, and we’ll discuss and dissect the issues you are running into, with the goal of breaking the impasse and hopefully giving some insight to help not only in this mix, but in future ones.

I’m not going to do your mix for you, but I will point out areas of potential problems, challenge assumptions, extend the knowledge of your tools, and guide you to a solution that works in the context of your circumstances.  

 Requirements

- Your DAW of choice

-  Skype on the computer on which you run your DAW, or some other way to transmit your DAW screen and voice to me.

- an internet connection fast enough to stream Skype and audio at the same time.

- the Audiomovers plugin, so you can transmit your audio to me in real time [https://audiomovers.com].

- a working knowledge of your DAW, so we can focus on the music and not the workings of your particular program.

 

Cost and payment

The rate is $100/hr USD, with a 1 hour minimum.  I have found that 90 minute sessions work best, given the nature of the process and in practical terms. 

Payment can be done via Paypal or Venmo.  I will provide the proper account info when we schedule a session.
