KEN'S MIX PHILOSOPHY
analog / digital hybrid
I came up in the analog age, starting my career in NYC in the early nineties. I worked on all the big analog boards like the SSL, Neve, Focusrite, API as well as the large digital consoles including the Oxford and the Neve Capricorn. In all this time, I have extensively used just about every piece of studio gear ever made.
At this point, I can honestly say that I have done hundreds of analog mixes and hundreds completely “in the box.” I’ve won Grammy’s for songs that I mixed completely “in the box,” and I’ve been Grammy nominated for songs I mixed on big analog boards. The Gold and Platinum records I’ve earned over the years is pretty evenly divided between analog and digital formats.
I don’t believe that it has to be one way or the other. The mixing environment I have created in my studio is the best I’ve ever had, a true analog / digital hybrid setup.
