MIXING

WITH IVO SOTIROV

About

I'm a mixing engineer based in Milton Keynes, UK. Over the past ten years of living in England, I've gained priceless experience working alongside some of my heroes. Now, I spend most of my hours making music or making the tools I need for music.

 

While this website focuses on my mixing services, I am also an active producer & recording engineer. 

In my spare time, I review gear, consult tech companies, and design my own equipment. On the About page, you can find out more. 

 

My attitude towards studio work is that of old-school engineers. I believe what we do is a craft that needs thousands of hours to develop. Before I became a professional engineer/producer, I spent years educating myself and working as an assistant, which I still do today!

AT THE FRIARY STUDIOS

The Room

The mixing room is the most important tool for any mixing engineer.
I currently use The Friary Studios (Studio A) for all my mixing services. Designed by Barny Barnicott, this spacious room features some of the most advanced acoustic treatment technologies along with an ultra-high-end sound system. Our main monitors are the custom-made Munro M4 (ATC line) speakers, previously used in The Red Room (Miloco).
These monitors provide an incredibly accurate representation of the music, which is why dozens of UK #1 hits from Lana Del Ray to the Chemical Brothers, ColdPlay & Slipknot have been mixed on them.

The Gear

My workflow is a true hybrid - I utilise the best of both analogue and digital mixing.
The centre-piece of our Studio A is a 48-channel SSL G4000 console previously used in Olympic Studio 1 by countless legendary artists including Prince & The Rolling Stones. The iconic sound of the SSL G-series desks has been chased by artists & producers for generations and to this day it sets the benchmark for superior character and depth of sound.

Other Gear

Neve 1073,   Manley Dual Mono,   Gates The Yard,   Avalon 737
2x WesAudio 1176,   Gates Level Devil,   Gates STA-Level,   Gates SA39
E.A.R. 825q,   WesAudio EQP
