    Pre-production is important as if it is done well then everything fits into place in the studio. I have had bands approach me to do a mix and had a listen and told them to go back and re-track the songs they want me to mix! I give them tips usually on arrangement as that is what is usually lacking but it can also be sloppy technique or not having rehearsed the songs enough to get them sounding convincing. Garbage in Garbage out is what is said in music and it is very true. I tell musicians (BY FAILING TO PREPARE YOU ARE PREPARING TO FAIL!!) In other words get it right at source, get the sounds that are needed right when tracking then come mixing time it will all fall into place.

    Cheers mate,
