High Point Audio is a music production studio offering Recording, Mixing, Mastering services.
Mixing is the process of blending all the individual tracks in a recording to create a version of the song that sounds as good as possible – also known as the “mix”
Mixing often also includes a good deal of editing – choosing the best bits of every take of a song, and sometimes even building musical elements from scratch. Sometimes there is so much editing involved it forms a separate stage in between tracking and mixing.
Mastering is the process of turning a collection of songs into an album (or single, playlist, or podcast…) and combining them to create a final master for manufacturing. Or – it’s making your music sound the best it can be.
In mixing you are balancing the instruments to get a great mix of each song, in mastering you are balancing songs against each other to get a great sequence. This can vary from being a very subtle process, involving minor tweaks to polish the existing mixes, to occasionally being a complete rescue mission for problem songs, or where detailed restoration is needed.

I enjoyed working with Brandon, It was very easy for him to understand my ideas which made the process go so smoothly and efficiently, I will definitely work with him in the future and persuade anyone interested in giving him a job to go for it.
A great musician!! %100 recommended!! :D
Brandon is a fantastic mixer who is highly experienced and passionate about what he does. It was clear to see that he gave his full effort and went the second mile while working on my track. Thanks for the good work!
Interview with High Point Audio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm most proud of my band Cabbages & King's debut album. We recorded, mixing, and mastered it in my friend's studio. The album won artist of the year and it gave us the boost we needed as a band.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I currently working on an EDM project for an amazing producer from Ukraine. It's sounding great!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like both, Analog works best for some things while digital can be better for others. After all, is just a tool, a means to an end. As long as the end result sounds the way you want it to, that's all that matters.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like being creative and making my client's jaws drop when they hear the difference between the rough board mix and the final masters.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: A lot of people think what us mixing guys do is easy or we are able to turn a poorly recorded track into a professional high-quality track as they hear on the online, radio, or tv.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually ask for a reference song they want their song to sound similar to.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice to anyone looking to hire me is, Feel free to contact me anytime. If possible, try to get your tracks in a consolidated wav format. Starting from the beginning of the song and at least 44.1 Herz 24 bit.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1. A super fast PC/Mac 2. My Softube and Plugin Alliance plugins 3. My studio monitors 4. Solo 610 pre amp 5. U87 mic
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out as a drummer, then out of necessity I became and recording, mixing, and mastering engineer. I've been a music for more than 20 years, and I have been working in a studio environment for 10 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is more of a "let the song tell you what it needs" style. I don't like hard rules that say you must do this, or you can't do that. In the end, as long as it sounds good, that's all that matters.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: "Less is more" Often times we tend to think adding more tracks, more reverb, more compression, and eq will make something better when in reality it can make the song worst by ruining the initial goal of the song.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I like working on rock, pop, and EDM the most, but I have worked on metal, jazz, indie, singer-songwriter, and much more in my ten years of mixing and mastering.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm a drummer for more than 20 years now. So I can record a mean drum track :). Mixing and mastering was something I got into out of necessity, then I fell in love with the craft and have been striving to become the best engineer I can be.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I choose my gear and plugins carefully to pull off professional tracks.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly do mixing and mastering services for my clients. Everything from rock, pop, EDM, jazz, metal, and more
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a professional attitude and a willingness to go above and beyond what many others will do, to achieve that "pro" sound.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to do everything in my power to achieve the sound and quality my clients expect.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to chat with my clients before I start working to get a better understanding of where they want the music to go.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Anyone who has taken the time to become the best they can be at their craft is alright in my books.
