Interview With Pro Mixer/Producer Mark Endert [Video]

2011 Jun 15, 2011

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down (over skype) with pro mixer and producer Mark Endert of Madonna, Maroon 5, and Fiona Apple fame. Originally from California, the now Floridian has worked with so many top artists and continues to mix major projects in his own studio. His discography spans even more people like Gavin DeGraw, Train, Five For Fighting, The Fray, Adam Lambert, and the list goes on. For a more complete list of his credits please visit his site.

This Guy Knows Mixing

If you want to make great recordings and mixes then go to the source, someone who does phenomenal work. Mark is one of those guys and his work speaks for itself. In this interview Mark was gracious enough to answer a lot of my questions and shed some light on the world of making hit records, including:

  • How breaking the “rules” is crucial to being creative
  • Capturing the right vibe is more important than sound quality
  • Mark’s mixing workflow, finding what makes a song tick
  • How to know when your mix is done
  • How keeping separate mixing sessions is a life saver
  • Your levels are like your first “EQ” in the mix
  • How committing to sounds in the recording phase is crucial
