Remote Mixing & Mastering

Dino Pileggi on SoundBetter

Born and Raised in N.E. Ohio, home of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, I have over 30 years in the music industry. Working with and sharing the stage nationally with many artist such as KISS, Warrant, Candlebox, Sponge, Seven Mary Three, Montgomery Gentry, Grand Funk Railroad, BTO and many more.

I provide online mixing and mastering services where we receive your unmixed and unmastered tracks stems via a file sharing service. The same attention to quality and refining the sound is paid to our online mixing and mastering sessions as for the studio sessions that are attended.

Have you recorded a song at home or in another studio and felt it could do with remixing? I can help! What will happen on the day of the mix? We will load all your individual stems (instrument/ vocal files) into our recording system.

I will then analyze each individual audio track and determine what compression, panning eq, dynamics, layering/doubling and effects are needed. Vocals will be checked for alignment issues and pitch correction. Drums and percussion can be re-triggered with samples or with additional layers, to give them a punchier sound if needed. All of the above will create more clarity and space and result in a cleaner, crisper mix.
