Where Your Mix Lives™
For decades, sound engineers, producers and musicians have admired Bob Clearmountain's mixes. Recordings by legendary artists such as David Bowie, Chic, Roxy Music, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, INXS and many others are prime examples of how Clearmountain's work has elevated the role of the "mixer" to that of an essential creative partner in the record making process. Clearmountain's ability to create a soundscape and atmosphere in which voices and instruments seem to live effortlessly in an intimate space, but all blend seamlessly together, set new standards for mixing. And his artistry and passion for revealing the true character of the piece of music and bringing out the emotions of the music brings to the point what inspired the work of art from the beginning.

Clearmountain's Hardware FX-Workflows for your DAW
Over decades of mixing hit songs, Clearmountain has developed a complex and personalized hardware FX signal chain to create imaginary soundscapes in which the musical elements each have their own space and dimension, but are still connected to the whole. This FX signal chain, which has been developed over years, includes all the hardware equipment of a studio - live echo chambers, delays, harmonizers, de-esser, EQs and a large analog SSL mixer and lots of patch cables... so many patch cords! It turned out to be almost impossible to reproduce this complicated connection of hardware with individual plug-ins in a DAW. With Clearmountain's Domain it is refreshingly easy to get Bob's results with a simple click on a preset.
