Here's a before and after example from a mix Kevin did for Dakota Melin. It's easy to switch between both to compare. This will give you a good idea of what he can do for your music. The before example sounds "ok", sure. But listen to how much more clarity, tightness and warmth a good mix has brought to the song. Dakota himself couldn't have been happier.

Before:

After:

"You did a really good job! I like it a lot better than the last guy who tried to mix my stuff... I think because my approach is a bit outside the norm, the kids that have attempted a crack at it so far are out of their depth a bit, I don't know how else to explain it. You stand head and shoulders above anyone else who's attempted to mix my stuff lately."

Check out some more examples of Kevin's mixing work below. He covers different styles, but specialises in EDM, Pop & Blues/Jazz

FAQ

Why should I work with you?

Listen, I understand what you're thinking when you're looking for an online mix engineer: "Why should I work with this guy?". I know there are a lot of hustlers out there thinking that, just because they have a DAW installed on their computers, they can mix. These self-proclaimed "mix engineers" are not going to be able to deliver and you want to protect yourself from getting a bad mix for your money. I get that. It wouldn't be the first time a desparate client came to me to fix a terrible mix.

So a word of advice if you're looking around for an online mix engineer. Be sure to check if they can list examples of their work, their experience with mixing, have reasonable prices and what their clients have to say. That's the only way you can be sure that you'll get a good service for your money. Oh, and be wary of people claiming to "turn your music into a hit" or anything like that. While mixing is necessary, the cold hard truth is that no mix can insta-magically turn your music into a hit record.

As for me? Here are some examples of my work, my experience with mixing (an entire website devoted to the art of mixing and sound!), my prices and what my clients have to say. I'll let you judge if I got what it takes.


Who will be doing the mix?

I will. There is never a middle man. You'll get to work directly with me which means that you can communicate your wishes clearly and promptly.


Do you offer pitch and timing corrections?

I sure do. Every mix I do has editing included, simply because editing is where a great mix starts. If your vocals need tuning, I'll tune them. If your drums or bass is off time, I'll correct the timing. Simply put, I'll do everything I have to in order to make your music sound great.


What will you be mixing on?

When mixing, it's important to have a room where you can trust that what you hear is right. That's why my studio features world class acoustic treatment and high end monitoring. In the box, my weapon of choice is Logic Pro X together with a bunch of great sounding plugins that I love (Waves, Melodyne, Blue Cat,...).

Re-amping guitars or bass is possible through a Fender, Ashdown or Roland amplifier. If you've recorded your guitars through a plugin, this means that I can take your clean signal and sculpt it into anything you want. I hope you like some warm, analog tones?


Full list of gear & plugins:

  1. Workstation: Macbook Pro
  2. DAW: Logic Pro X (possible to mix Reason or Ableton Live project files as well)
  3. Acoustics: Zilenz acoustic panels & Bass traps
  4. Monitoring: KRK Rokit 6 x2
  5. Plugins & additional software: Waves Gold plugin bundle, Bluecat plugin bundle, Melodyne Editor,...
  6. Controllers: M-Audio Keystation Pro 88, AKAI MPD32, TouchDAW
  7. Guitars & basses: Altamira, Musicman Stingray 3Eq, Hagstrom Super Swede Tremar, Simon & Patrick Sunburst Folk
  8. Amps: Fender Princeton, Ashdown MAG300, Roland

How do I send you my tracks?

There's a couple of ways. You can send me your Logic, Reason or Ableton session with all your tracks included. Alternatively, you can export your stems and send me those. If you export your stems yourself, you'll need to turn off any EQ, compression, reverb, delay or other effects on a "dry" version of the tracks. Next to your dry tracks, send me some notes on the effects you did together with the wet tracks.


How long will it take to complete my mix?

That depends on the project. Usually, I can get the mix to you in 2 to 3 workdays. If you need it sooner, we can work something out.


What if I don't like your mix?

That's easy. Although up until now it hasn't happened yet, if you are not satisfied, you get your money back instantly - no questions asked. I would never want any client of mine to pay for something they don't like.


How and when do I pay?

Working with a stranger online is always a bit of a scary undertaking. I get that. My regular clients pay 50% up front when they send me their files, but I do understand that if it's your first time working with me, you don't want to take any risks. That's why the first time, you only pay after the mix is completed. I've got one small safeguard for my own protection in this case. Until you pay for the mix, I will insert an audio watermark. This will render the mix unsuitable for distribution. After you pay, you will get all the 24 bit files without any watermarks whatsoever.

You can pay via Paypal. You can use it with any major credit card or bank account. It's all pretty simple.


Where's Soundcoach Studios located?

The studio is located in the centre of Antwerp, Belgium. A beautiful location.
