Re-Recording Mixer

Where do you work?

  • Warner Bros.
  • I also work at my home studio for some projects.

For how long have you been using SoundFlow?

I've been using SoundFlow since version 3

Can you share some projects that you've used SoundFlow on?

  • Midnight Mass
  • Fall of the House of Usher
  • The First Omen
  • You People
  • Insidious: The Red Door
  • 13 Reasons Why
  • The Black Phone

I am also a scoring mixer on several projects. Most recently using SoundFlow on the score mix of:

  • Fall of the House of Usher
  • Midnight Mass
  • X-Men '97

Can you describe how SoundFlow has improved the way you work?

Honestly it's to the point now where I simply can't imagine working without SoundFlow.

Can you describe how much time you save with SoundFlow?

I use it for almost everything I'm doing involving AudioSuite processing in Dialog mixing workflows. Also for quick access to ProTools layout features (show this / hide that) while I'm running.

Tell us about a feature in SoundFlow that excites you

Recently I built a macro for delivering stems from my scoring recorder which takes all the printed stems, renames them, consolidates them as new audiofiles, then exports to a new session just for that cue. That alone saves about 10 minutes of work every time I do it and turns it into about a 30 second time during which I can drink more coffee.

Why would you recommend SoundFlow to others?

I recommend SoundFlow to everyone..... because ANY time you save doing boring stuff is time you can spend making it actually sound better. And time is the one thing you can't get back in life.
