I love mixing. The opportunity to take time to get something sounding right, to maximise the emotional engagement with a listener wherever they are and however they are listening, is both a pleasure and a big responsibility. When an artist entrusts me with their work, I owe it to them to do the best I can for them, to help them realise their vision for their music. It should never be about me - e.g. by making it sound like a Mark Rogers mix, whatever that may be - but rather my task is to help the artist express themselves as truly and deeply as possible.

Most of my mixing these days is in the box, although I can sometimes still be found at a big analogue or digital desk. I have and use most of the major Digital Audio Workstations - Pro Tools Ultimate, Merging Pyramix, Steinberg Nuendo, SAW Studio, Reaper, and Logic Pro - though my preferred mixing platform for many projects is Pro Tools. I have a large collection of plugins, and a hardware Bricasti M7 reverb unit.

Monitoring in my studio is with Genelec The Ones loudspeakers in Dolby Atmos configuration (7.1.4) as well as B&W 804 Diamonds for additional stereo reference.

And it's always nice to be recognised by one's peers!
