Edmeston, NY — July 20, 2016 — Mixing engineer Michael James demonstrates how to enhance a track by using the ‘X-Former’ knob on Dangerous Music’s 2-BUS+ analog summing mixer. Hear how it sounds on the pop music track “Live the Dream” by Danielle Lopresti. The X-Former processor “tightens up the low end and adds sheen and sparkle, a different type of harmonic content,” says James in the video.
Michael James has mixed Gold, Platinum and #1 records for a wide range of musical artists including New Radicals, Hole, Far, L7, Robben Ford, Kalimba, Edwin McCain, Maia Sharp, A.J. Croce, Chicago, Jawbreaker, and Mario Guerrero, and many more. Michael’s break as an artist came in 1983 with KROQ spinning his first single. During his tenure as staff producer and chief engineer at Radio Tokyo Studios in Venice, CA from 1986-90, he recorded artists such as Jane’s Addiction, Ray Manzarek (The Doors), John Lang (#1 songwriter of “Broken Wings” and “Kyrie”) and Richard Page (Mr. Mister). By 1994, Michael was head of A&R and Producer at Warner/Discovery. Today, Michael helms Alternator Records and IndieProMix. He continues to mix records while promoting music education via special events, master classes and mentoring.
