PORTFOLIO

Since the pandemic began around March 2020, I’ve mixed 60+ virtual performances and counting. Since then, my mixes for singers have collectively gotten over 310,000 views on YouTube.

For Virtual Choirs, singers perform individually at home and then send me their audio recordings. It's my job to provide consultation, recording guidance, audio alignment, audio editing and repair, mixing and mastering. To ultimately get the group sounding like they are singing together and cohesive in one space, such as a studio, or a theater/stage, concert hall, church, cathedral, etc.

TESTIMONIALS

Eduardo Navega, Director, Vassar

Dear Tim, I am in shock. You are a magician! Thank you for a great job!

Kelly Nichole, Singer, The CØALITIØN

So I have to talk about this man’s ability to mix vocals and blend it together with such intuition. Wowwww. He murdered it! It sounds like buttery heaven. All my musician friends should reach out to Tim for mixes. Maybe you already recorded and you want a brand new vibe or just to really bring the song or project the whole way? Yeah, talk to Tim, and - trust me - you’ll be blown away.

Michael Scheetz, Director, Vassar

Fabulous!!! Thanks for your brilliant editing for us, Tim!

Nicole Becker, Director, Teachers College

Tim did amazing mixes of our choirs. He started by learning exactly what we were aiming for and providing models of different kinds of mixes. We found the mix that represented our choirs the way we envisioned (for us, a natural sound that doesn't sound engineered), and Tim took it from there, completing each of the songs very quickly and immediately responsive to our feedback with fast rounds of edits. We would absolutely bring him on board for any project.

Tim’s one of those rare guys who seems comfortable in a wide variety of genres and does them all exceptionally well. He has a keen ear and an insatiable desire to learn and experiment. He’s also a conceptual thinker with a deep knowledge of sonic principles, so he gets what you’re trying to do, and knows how to make it happen. All of this comes wrapped in his enthusiasm and positive attitude - a truly passionate artist.

Christine Howlett, Music Dept. Chair, Vassar

It has been an absolute joy to work with Tim. We have worked on two projects together just in the past couple of months. He is knowledgeable, patient, kind, and fast! He was generous with his time in answering my questions, as well as meeting with the singers. As we worked through the mixing process, he always supported my artistic choices while offering expert advice along the way. I'm looking forward to future collaborations.

FAQ

Do you charge extra for revisions?

No. Unlimited revisions are included until you are 100% happy with the final result. This is, of course, within a reasonable manner. Oftentimes, the finalized mix is approved after 1 or 2 revisions at most.

What is the difference between Mixing and Mastering?

Mixing is carefully blending all the individual tracks using EQ, compression, reverb, delay and other tools. Mixing is 95% of the work in making a song sound great. Mastering is the final 5% to provide overarching EQ, compression, limiting and other techniques. Think of it as the final polish of a song. Mastering is also for helping to make the song sound louder.

How do Virtual choirs and performances work exactly?

The basic summary is:

  1. You choose the song you want to sing and then find or create a backing track (or backing karaoke track, or backing MIDI instrumental track) to sing along to.

  2. Wearing headphones, you and your group members each sing & record on your own, in your apartments/homes. 

  3. You all send me your audio files. I get to work and communicate closely with you along the way, to craft the perfect mix that you envisioned.

  4. I send you the mix and then we work on revisions if needed. All revisions are included! I want you to be 100% satisfied with your final mix.

  5. If you’ve hired me for Video services too, then next we work together with my Videographer partner, to craft you the perfect video presentation you’ll love.  If not and you will be doing the video portion, then my job is finished and I send you the final maximum quality mix.

I’m a Choir Director and my group is excited to try a virtual choir! But I’m not sure where to begin. Can you help?

Absolutely! Check out my Virtual Recording Guide for info. Beware, it might be a lot to take in! But everything you need to get started is in there. If anything is confusing, always feel free to contact me with additional questions.

I’ve already done virtual performances, but am now looking to take mine to the next level. Can you help?

Definitely. First, review my Tips and Tricks. If none of that is new to you and you have additional specific questions, feel free to contact me anytime.

I’m looking to upgrade to an external USB microphone, but I don’t want to break the bank. Do you have any recommendations?
Here’s an article comparing 10 USB Microphones under $100. And here’s another article. My tip is always to do a little research and reading, keeping your voice in mind. For example, if your voice is really bright to begin with, you’d want to avoid any mics that promote adding brightness.
