  • What Our Clients Say about SpectraSound...

      Jim and I go way back. I met him in 1978 when he was an assistant on my “Coast to Coast” project. To sum him up the words that come to mind are focused, passionate, capable and very qualified.

Mix & Master

Mixing ConsoleMy mixing philosophy has evolved over the years. By mixing on mastering grade monitors in an acoustically correct room we can now get the mix to a place where very little mastering is needed. I am very happy to say that I frequently get feedback from mastering engineers saying just that! This can save you time and money big time. Every session has 100% recall. Come back and tweak as much as you like… from exactly where you left off, without one single outboard patch!

Our mixes are never hyper compressed. They are alive and breathing, there is space between the notes. We really know how to get punch, preserve transients and most important of all; not suck the soul out of your music with over-processing. Loud is easy. Clean, organic and artistic is a different story altogether and is only attainable through experience, musical knowledge and artistic integrity.
