“While anyone can download a free DAW and try to mix, the ears of a seasoned audio engineer using sophisticated equipment cannot be replaced.”
At BeMelodic, we use a hybrid analog/digital mixing process that delivers exceptional sound.
Beginning with recording, we use professional grade Universal Audio, API, Burl, Warm Audio, and Audient mic preamps in combination with our outboard gear as well as extremely high-grade boutique and commercial microphones to help you achieve a professional mix.
We EQ using a combination of professional software plugins and outboard gear such as our Heritage Audio Symph EQ.
Our dynamics processing is also achieved using a combination of hardware such as our 1176 rev A, IGS Audio S-type Stereo Bus Compressor, dbx 160a and a large selection of plugins. While our master bus is processed through our Heritage Audio Successor stereo bus compressor which sounds very much like the Neve 8854 Compressor found on countless hits since the 1960’s.
In the end, tens of thousands of dollars of equipment and software tools to give your music the treatment only achievable at a professional mixing house. This is the essence of our professional mixing services. Check out our Music Portfolio for more!
BeMelodic Mixing Style
Every Mix Engineer has his own style which helps contribute to your music and how it will sound in the end. Here’s a little bit about what our mixing style is like:
Drums: We love mixing punchy BIG drum sounds (for rock … reminiscent of the 80’s) with a tight kick, smacking snare, clear and present cymbals. That almost “live” feeling you get listening to the mix of a solid drum kit and skin smashing drummer to set that beat you tap your foot to. Doing this all the while making it modern and current for your genre.
Guitars: Mixing guitars is fun and I love the sound of big in your face guitars for metal, and crystal clean guitars in country and pop, but without compromising the genuine skill that guitar worshippers love. Killer solos are especially fun, while still being in the mix, its important to give them that exceptional presence, and the right amount of delay, and reverb that makes it break through the mix and energizes those air-guitarists! Everyone loves air-guitaring to an awesome tune.
Vocals: Character! Gotta have it. I love the right tone shaping, fat sounds of an 1176 blue stripe, while also ensuring clarity and presence in the mix. Of course every style has its own tone, so the right saturation and EQ adds a sing-along presence listeners love.
