Hi my name is Max. I've been recording, mixing and making music for over 20 years. I have been the artist, the producer and now the engineer. I understand that mixing records is as much about feel as it is about technical skill. Having the advantage of being an artist myself for the first 10 years of my career taught me how to respect the record.
I work with a wide range of artists from brand new making-their-first-demo to been-recording-for-years. My primary DAWs are ProTools and Logic. If your session is in either of those just zip the folder and send it over! If you're working in Ableton or something similar please bounce out your stems individually. If there are sounds that you're committed to like a spring reverb on a guitar or a specific FX on a track please print those wet (with plugins on the track).
I can typically mix a song in a couple of days. I like to give a day to clear my head and then come back to it so turnaround is about 3-5 days.
I specialize in HipHop and Rnb but have also had great success mixing Pop, Alternative and Indie Rock.
Best to send me mix notes by e-mail. Include time stamps like "ad lib at 2:47 turn up", "more reverb on bell at 1:10"
My goal is to help you achieve the vision that's in your head. There's no ego in mixing and I'm not going to change your record to try and make it "my mix". You're hiring me for my skills, taste and 20+ years of deep understanding of feeling a record.

Max has a great ear for mixes and is very communicative throughout the process. Max works very efficiently and always gets me a quality mix and master with a quick turnaround. He is my go-to engineer whenever possible.
Max is amazing to work with. He is very thorough and educated with his mixing and mastering. Always professional and willing to educate and provide great advice.
Max is musically trained and extremely precise with his mixing and mastering process. He is able to work out stems, both vocal and musical, in order to leave a properly balanced end product.
