"It’s always a pleasure and relief to work with professionals that genuinely care about the end result..."
I was very pleased with the way my album turned out. It was a collection of 8 of my original songs. When I record original material I have a certain sound in mind. It’s always a pleasure and relief to work with professionals that genuinely care about the end result and pleasing their client in the recording studio. The songs sound awesome! I highly recommend Hurt Mesa Music Production simply because they care.

"Edward has the ears to know what works and the skills to make it happen."
Over the past 10+ years I have worked with Dr. Harrington in settings involving live and studio recording, music production, as well as live sound reinforcement. Edward has the ears to know what works and the skills to make it happen. He also has the attenuation as a multi - instrumentalist to understand ensemble interaction and the challenges of acoustical environments. I have always been pleased and sometimes been thrilled with the recordings he produces. (Especially the ones I'm on.)
Kevin Zoernig — Studio Musician // Piano // Organ
"His professionalism, knowledge, and calm attitude were exactly what I needed..."
Performing and recording my first opera was the scariest thing I ever attempted. But, when I worked with Edward Harrington, those fears quickly diminished. His professionalism, knowledge, and calm attitude were exactly what I needed to move forward with my music goals and I look forward to working with him again.

Have your project professionally produced at Hurt Mesa! Whether you recorded tracks yourself, or want to start from scratch, Edward Harrington can help bring it to life!
Sometimes even great projects need a more professional sounding blend comparable to what you hear on iTunes or Spotify. Maybe you’ve done your part as a performing artist, and now need help with the technical side so your audio sounds awesome. Hurt Mesa can mix, master, even record additional parts for you.
Mixing and Mastering, too
What is mixing? If you have separate audio tracks in a DAW like Ableton, Sonar, or Pro Tools, then you’re on your way to getting a musical balance. Compression, EQ, and reverb help to sculpt tracks so they sit well together. Processing techniques can vary depending on your style of music. In short, mixing is balancing the levels of each instrument and voice according to the musical genre.
What is mastering? Mastering begins with a great mix, and achieves optimal loudness, width, and EQ balance for the style of music. Mastered tracks are comparable to other tracks in the album and in the marketplace.
What is production? In addition to mixing and mastering, production can include the addition of instrumental tracks, harmonizing vocals, adding or subtracting orchestral, even changing the order of verses and choruses.
Production often requires more time and creativity than mixing, and mastering is the least likely to change the character of your project. The mixing process can add life and excitement to your project, but the best approach to mixing is to be tru to the artist's vision.
