NICK STETINA

MIXING & MASTERING

 

01 about

Hello! I'm a mixing and mastering engineer located outside of Chicago. I started recording roughly 15 years ago, beginning with documenting my own writing as a multi-instrumentalist and eventually progressed to recording and producing regional artists. Over the course of a decade, I played drums, bass, and guitar in various groups around Chicago, as well as trumpet and french horn. While I still often perform on productions, those formative years as an active musician helped inform and shape the engineer I am today.

In 2019, I partnered with acclaimed acoustician, Jeff Hedback, to design a new mixing/mastering suite. The combination of Jeff's clever design and the installation of Dutch and Dutch's advanced speaker technology resulted in a room that translates accurately and is a daily pleasure to work in.

Fast forward to today and I have the pleasure of mixing and mastering songs for artists from all around the world. One of the most rewarding aspects is connecting with people and sharing in their excitement when hearing their song come to life. I think it's this and the drive to provide the best work possible that has contributed to the hundreds of satisfied artists and return clients over the years.

"Nicks's enthusiasm and attention to detail heightened my music to a standard I didn’t think was possible. He’s really about the artist's vision and will sonically get you where you need to be."

"Working with Nick couldn't have been a better experience. Not only is he an incredible engineer, but he also has amazing intuition when it comes to his projects. He's so communicative about his process that even when you're not working in the room with him, you know you're in good hands. I've been nothing but overjoyed by what he has brought to my project, & I am looking forward to creating more music with him!"

"...Nick will work with you to make music bigger and better than you thought you were capable of. A word of warning: Hearing Nick's final mixes of your music for the first time will induce a tear or two."
