Mixing

Here at Studio D, we understand that a great mix can truly transform a song and take it to the next level.  It all starts with a great recording and performance, but a creative, finely tuned mix can breath new life into a track and really make it come alive! Studio D has offered professional mixing services since 1984.  We currently offer stereo, and surround sound mixing with DTS encoding. Our control room, which is 20×20 feet with a compression ceiling, is finely tuned for accurate listening.  We have custom Westlake 2 way TAD components, Yamaha NS10 M’s, and a JBL LSR28P surround speaker system for monitoring your mix.  Our great selection of vintage analog gear & high-end plug-ins will give you the warmth of analog and pristine clarity of digital to achieve your sonic vision.
