Philip personally mixes and masters every song in a state of the art

acoustically treated control room.

The made-to-measure mixing room was built in the span of one and a half years. Knowing the mixing space's acoustics in and out, Philip is able to deliver mixes that are going to translate to any speaker system or any listening environment.

 

I use Pro Tools HD along with analog gear from companies such as Prism Sound, Pultec, Manley, Avalon, Tube-Tech, Universal Audio, Antelope Audio, and many more.  Having all the gear in the world won't make you a great sound engineer, it's my dedication to making my clients 100% happy that truly sets me apart.

A lot of clients ask me how I go about analogue and digital processing. As far as sound processing is concerned, I use a hybrid approach when it comes to mastering. There are certain things I prefer to do with digital tools and for other things I go "outside of the box." However, all of my client's mixes will at some point be converted into the analogue domain using a world-class AD/DA conversion by Antelope Audio - sometimes even without much processing at all and other times very radical depending on the given material.

I’ll do as much or as little as I have to in order to take that mix to the next level.

 

Sometimes just a slight boost is needed at 12-14k with my Prism Sound EQ to give an audio file more "air" and a certain "mojo", other times more work it required.

Working with Phil was such a great experience.

I sent him a track that had much detail and specifications and he nailed it. He was very professional and always got something to me for me to put my ears on in a timely matter.

 

If you need that big mix for your next record... Phil is your guy!
