Mike Whetzel is an audio engineer based in Nashville, Tennessee. After attending John and Martina McBride's Blackbird Academy Professional School of Audio, he interned at the world-renowned Blackbird Studios in Nashville.

Services: Mixing, Editing
MixingI mix through a hybrid analog/digital setup using Logic Pro and Pro Tools. I use Antelope Orion 32+ converters into either my hot-rodded Soundcraft Ghost console or my vintage Heil Sound HM1200 mixer. My Studer A810 stereo analog tape machine allows me to master to tape if desired.
I can also re-amp samples and dry DI recordings through my Kemper amp profiler. The Kemper, in my opinion, is the greatest amp simulator on the market right now because of the way it actually profiles the "feel" of an amp rather than just attempting to approximate the sound digitally. I have thousands of different amp profiles, and they all sound great! Even some of the biggest names in Rock and Roll are switching to this technology because it sounds so good.
I offer re-amping, mixing, summing, and processing services using any of my gear. I also have much additional gear that isn't listed, such as high quality guitars, drums, microphones, amplifiers, ukelele, keyboards, piano, etc.
EditingI have the capability to tune and edit vocals, comp and edit multiple tracks down to final arrangements, and if desired, sum with an analog console and a Studer A810 analog master tape machine.
