Selected SOULSOUND MIXES
$199 Quick & Impactful Mix
- Average of 6-8 hours devoted to the mix
- 2 revisions per mix
- Focused more on energy & impact, less on subtle details
- Studio sound quality, live performance feel
- More digital processing, as it is faster working method then analog
I approach a quick mix more like a live sound gig, where the energy needs to hit immediately, and convey the song in a professional sounding manner. I will do more of the work in the digital realm (as using plugins is quicker then bouncing through my analog gear). The focus is on energy and impact - the fine details are less of a focal point, and the mix is more about just having a great sounding version of the song, similar to what you might hear at a high level live show.
$349 Focused & Detailed Mix
- Average of 10-14 hours devoted to the mix
- 5 revisions per mix
- Main elements bounced through appropriate analog gear to add tone and emotion
- Mix automated in the digital realm, focusing on fine details and mix momentum/development
- Time given to exploring options for making the track come alive
The process is much the same as the full “Extended & Detailed Mix”, using analog gear for just the main elements. I move quicker when making decisions with less revisions. This is a great option for an artist on a budget, that wants to maximize their funds, while still having a fully automated and engaging mix.
& Detailed Mix
- Average of 15-20 hours devoted to the mix
- Unlimited revisions
- Each element is bounced through appropriate analog gear to add tone and emotion
- Mix automated in the digital realm, detail-focused with mix momentum/development
- Focus on “special moments” customized to your song to make your mix unique
- Time allowed to reflect on the mix and making adjustments
I begin by bouncing each element of the track out through the appropriate analog gear - maybe some tubes on the bass, or a little warm Neve tone, a subtle tape delay on the vocals, and some vibe-y compression to make the drums pop.
Elements are then moved into the digital realm for flourishes and fine detail. I also pay special attention to coming up with custom moments that make your mix unique and magical. Once a mix is complete, I review and revise with each artist to ensure that you are loving it!

“Orion Paradis, you did a bang up job! Cleaned up a lot of the frequency content that was bugging me and just rounded out the sound really nice. Definitely has your SOULSOUND sonic stamp. I love it!" - DAVID ROMAN
