"All of my sessions with Jorge at Tropic Culture Studio and Audio Production is stellar! Great gear, great room, great engineering and even better company! Normally after sessions we spend more time talking gear and learning new ways to be more efficient in production. I fly from the west coast for Tropic Culture. I will never allow any other engineer to work on my projects."

A great mix will become a great Master. Mixing is one of the most important steps before mastering. In many instances we have found poor audio tracks mixed and mastering will not fix a poor mix. It has to be fixed during the mixing process, For all these reasons we offer mixing services.

The most critical part of the entire process is recording. Recording good maintained instruments in a good room will make the mixing process a less stressful ordeal. Good recording equipment with a good engineer and a good sounding room will collectively make a great sounding project. Bad recording practices and techniques can cause the mix to become less than ideal for a professional sounding project. It is important to understand gain structure and level differences between the analog domain and digital domain. Good microphone techniques and understanding the vision of the project will allow for a great start to the extended process of finalizing a song.
