Above is the single Your Greatest Fear from Scorching Mantis' album Cicada Madness!, a powerful track from the minds of Sam Fishman, Alex Goldenthal, Ryan Acquaotta, and recorded/co-produced at Architekt Studios by Shane Stanton, with mixing and mastering by Arkon.
This is an early version of a track with artist Jodi B, all production/instrumental by Arkon with artist supervision, recorded at Arkon Studio.
Starting as a cover of the band Tool's Reflection, this track created with custom programmed guitar-like synthesizers and drum samples naturally morphed into a song of it's own.
Between the multiple talents in Arkon Audio, we can create a solid composition and mix of just about any genre.
MIXING: Unconscious Value
The amount of talented musicians following their passion, hoping to make a living nowadays is nearly incomprehendable. But why is it that in any genre there's a relatively tiny, select group of very popular artists? There is amazing talent in so many small artists; their musical ability is on par with industry leaders- but with extensive knowledge and experience in the field of sound production we can instantly identify the missing key, which is the quality of mixing and/or production. When a potential customer/fan hears your song for the first time they simply don't have the capacity to appreciate all the musical nuances and subtlety that the songwriter themselves perceive effortlessly. What fresh ears notice first is the mixing.
But it's mostly subconscious.
If you sat someone down and played an amateur and industry standard mixed version of the same song 9/10 people would be able to correctly determine which version just sounds better. But if you played only one version and asked them whether it's amateur or industry standard 9/10 would have no idea.
Hear for Yourself
Here is an A/B comparison of the same drum pattern from a song by Arkon unmixed(raw leveled samples) vs fully mixed, and following this is A/B sections of the complete song, with basic amateur mixing(EQ/Compression/Limiting/Reverb) vs full Arkon Mixing.
The full song with innovative Arkon mixing sounds night and day in comparison. A well mixed track will naturally sound louder with no additional clipping/compression.
