    Yet another project mixed and mastered successfully. Danang is quick and to the point with requests and revisions. I would recommend his services to anyone who would like to make remote mixing a stress-free experience.

    Danang is quick and accurate. He knows what he is doing. Another song, mix and mastered by him that did not really need any major revisions. He's also easy to talk to which helps a lot.

    Danang was so easy to work with. I gave him home recorded stems and he made the best out of them in one go. No revisions needed.

Interview with intheboxstudio

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: both of them are great, and each has it own advantage, to try to make it works from both analog and digital is the real job. but in the very end, good mix is a good mix and the man behind the gun is what matter most, whether is came from 48ch SSL mixer or from cubase 5 with stock plugin

  3. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: when my client smile when hearing the result of my works

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: "where's the big bald mixer?", "i don't see any hardware here?!", "you mixing ONLY using computer???!" i just answered with my mixing mastering result

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: when you layered snare/kick with sample (using drumagog/aptrigga), always use the original sound with minimal 20-30% mix with the sample, never ever 100% replace the sound, because however bad the drum sound, it will bring more natural groove and feel into the song

  26. A: i mixed lot of genre, but most of my works is pop-rock-metal stuff

  31. Q: What's your typical work process?

  32. A: after i got the recording data, first i check it for any noticeable flaw, then i do some rough balance and send it to client for verification, then i'd start the editing-mixing-mastering after the client is confirm with the rough balance after i finish the song, i send it back to client for some revision

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: Now my setup is 100% in the box, but with DSP card based plugin, UAD2 solo, and TC Powercore, with a lots of other plugin
