I use a wide range of tools to enhance the artist's vision for their song, such as helping with songwriting and arranging, coaching performances in the studio and shaping tones both in recording and mixing.
When I mix, my primary goal is to enhance the raw emotional impact of each track and balance everything together in a way that most effectively communicates the artist's intent to the listener.
Mastering is the process of finalizing a stereo audio mix of a song to prepare it for release. It can involve subtle tone shaping, matching tones between songs, album pacing and increasing the overall volume.
