2019 Production & Mixing Demo Reel
Everything begins with a song. Whether you need Dr. Ford to write, co-write, or compose a song for your project, a great song is the most important part of the recording process.
When you are choosing a Producer for your project, it’s important to choose someone with the ability to bring your vision to life both musically and logistically. Understanding how to lead a team of musicians to get the best performances is paramount.
Mixing is the process of refining the sounds recorded and blending them into something great. Globally competitive mixing requires not only a great ear, but years of experience and technique to deliver a finished product that will shine in the marketplace.
Mastering is the final step of refining your song into a globally competitive sound. It requires a trained objective ear in a specially sound treated room. Dr. Ford works directly with industry leading Mastering Engineers in LA, NY, and Nashville.
If you want to learn Production, Composition, Recording, or Mixing, Dr. Ford offers private lessons and master-classes, custom tailored to your needs and progress. Avilable both in person, and over Video chat.
