Manhattan based Mixing engineer.

I have a private mix room in Manhattan with the best outboard gear on the planet, seamlessly integrated into my hybrid setup. Over 50 channels of outboard compression, 24 channels of outboard EQ and all perfectly calibrated so that recalls are *never* a problem.

    Chuck is fantastic - great attention to detail, kind, and of course knows just how to dissect a mix and make it so much better. Thank you so much!

    I've had Chuck mix a variety of projects over the years, and he's always been astounding. His capacity for enlarging the space in and around a tune is impressive. His knowledge of engineering is both wide-ranging and deep, and he pairs that with a great intuition for finding the emotional core of a song/performance. Killer bundle of talents.

  4. Review by Jostein W.

    I'll make it short. Look no further, Chuck knows what to do with your music to express what you want. In addition to being a top professional and a very talented mixing- and mastering engineer, he's always ready to answer you whenever you have any questions or requests. We're talking within minutes. Excellent!

Interview with Chuck Zwicky

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: Here is an interview I did that describes my process:

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: I use analog outboard gear because it sounds and feels so much better to me, the only reason people use plugins is for "convenience". Seriously? If something *sounds* better, I'll use it, doing the work is my job..!!!

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Perspective.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: My approach to mixing is that I try to bring out what the song is thinking, if you will, to find the essence of what it is, and what it’s trying to communicate.

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

  10. A: The first time I push up the faders I imagine what this song is going to feel like once it’s mixed. My job as a mixer is to translate that feeling into workable sounds and define the relationships between those sounds – creating the context in which each element has a purpose – and to use these individual elements to create a living, breathing entity and introduce it to the listener.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: All analog outboard gear, calibrated and set up so that recalls are *never* an issue...

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: I'm inspired by the people who put their hearts and minds into their work, who strive to make every song the best it can be.
