I’m slowly learning that art by watching my mentor.
“The combination of John’s mixing and mastering turned a “good” sounding song into a final polished product with all the in-your-face attitude that any decent electronic song should have. I listened to the final master file back at my house with my monitors and headphones individually and it sounded very clear and crisp, yet ambient. John did a great job of developing a stereo image of the song. That was my biggest issue with my original mix. It sounded good, but a bit too mono. I always have a hard time deciding what to pan where but I’m slowly learning that art by watching John do it to my own song. Most of the session was concentrated on finishing the track once and for all until it sounded professional.”
