Hi, my name is Fernando, I'm a former Recording Engineer, I started working since 1993 as recording studio runner/trainee, studio assistant until I was assigned as remote recording technician for the "Jr Jam live" session on RJTV29 under the mentorship of Recording Engineer-Producer Jim Sarthou (RIP) after almost 2 years, another company hire me as a full-time in-house Recording Engineer, My position at that time was so overwhelming for me, I started reading books about Recording and Mixing, as well as familiarizing my ears to commercial mix until finally, I started my very first recording projects and completed in almost a year mostly for underground band, 22 rock band and 8 mainstream pop and ballad albums with the help of my co-Studio Engineer Alex Generoso, Music Director Tito Fuentes (RIP), and the Songwriter and Executive Producer Pompee La Vina.
Like you, my mixing journey was so stressful it takes a long time, I can't say that my mix was ready and completely done, even though the executive has the approval to release the mix, I still have questioned "why my mix is not exactly sitting in the consumer type speaker compared to the commercial radio mix?" After a long researching and mixing practice, I found the right answers, since then I confidently say my mix is sound ready. When I started adapting the DAW for editing and mixing, using the right tools, fixing different sound issues more become easier and faster, that's the reason why I started this blog, I want to share it with you my hardship years in mixing and help you shorten your mixing difficulties with simple understanding and proper steps to fix the bad and undesirable mix.
