Mix engineer

Romain Dupont on SoundBetter

I'm a straight mix engineer so I'll probably spend more time on vocals than hi-hats.

I'm not a producer.
Recording and mixing music is the only craft I've been focussing on for 10years now, and I think the role I should play, is to work with producers and artists.
I've been teaching in audio school for 6 years if that can give you a sens of where I'm at, but I really think that finding the right mix engineer for your project is not just about skills. It is so much about finding the right person to collaborate with as a team.
Mixing is an artistic craft. Yes there is a ton of super geeky technical stuff behind it that every mixers should master, but at the end of the day it's about being proud or not, to press play on the music you want to present to the world.

Mastering is another game so come on... let mixing be mixing. And guess what, it can very much be loud and proud enough to be released as it is. My mentor is a talented mastering engineer who does not mess with mixing. The way I was educated taught me to have enough respect for mastering as a full on craft. I'll be more than happy to collaborate with a real mastering engineer if that is what you want, but I dont subscribe to the theory of some 25 year old bedroom engineer being a mastering tech. Sorry but I just don't, and I have the same plugins..

I'm lucky enough to work in a professional studio with real acoustic treatments, amazing speakers and some cool analog peaces of gear as a bonus!
