Joe Perkins Music

Studio Work

Mix Engineering

In addition to creating his own music, Joe takes on mixing work for other artists.

Working with Joe couldn’t be easier – simply drop him an email with details of what sort of mix you’re after.  Rates are negotiable depending on difficulty & time scale and special deals can be made for unsigned artists.  Once everything has been agreed, Joe will mix your music and an MP3 of the result will be emailed to you.  Changes can then be made (revisions are free) and only once you’re completely happy with the result, payment will be arranged and the final WAV files sent to you.  Simple!

Joe mixes with Pro Tools and being given complete session files for mixing is preferred, but tracks can also be mixed from WAV stems for people working with other DAWs.  If submitting stems, please bounce them all at the original WAV recording quality with any EQ/compression/effects removed, and all beginning at exactly the same point in your session with plenty of lead in before the audio begins.

  • 32-Bit mixing with AAX plugins (Slate Digital/Sonnox/Waves/etc)

Session Recording

Joe is also an active session musician and enjoys writing & recording guitar arrangements for other people’s songs.

The approach is much the same as mixing work: send Joe your song/ stems/session file; he’ll find out exactly what you’re after and give you a quote; the guitar parts will be recorded in Joe’s home studio; and only once you’re totally happy with everything will payment be arranged and the high-quality WAV stems sent over to you.

At the point of adding guitars to your songs, the drum recordings (at least) should be final to ensure that everything remains in time and locked together.  Whilst recording to a click track is doable, it’s sounds much more natural to record to live drums if they’re ultimately going to be the backbone of the song.
