ANALOG ONLINE MIXING
...to make your music spellbinding


David Bowie's 1972 vintage Helios mixing console, analog tape and Mixing HexenMeister Clemens Schleiwies can now magically fatten up your music and give it that fat, sumptuous, warm major label sound that you've been missing. And do it for peanuts. (Well, OK, walnuts).

No more having to defend your thin, flat ordinary sound with lame "..it´s not mastered yet"-excuses. Now, as everyone begs you to tell them how on earth you got your unique voluptuous vibes, you'll be shrugging and waving them off, trying to keep the secret for yourself ;-)


THE SECRET BEHIND THE MAGIC
...the rare vintage Helios console


DAVID BOWIE SIGNATURE

In the 60's and the 70's, the sound produced by Helios Mixing Consoles revolutionized music. No one had ever heard a rich, warm, fat sound like it before. And no one has been able to reproduce it since. All the legendary artists in those days in Europe, and in America used a Helios console. That's one of the reasons their music has become immortal.

Vintage Helios Console with David Bowie signature

MIX MAGAZIN ARTICLE

Only a handful Helios consoles were ever made, and many of them have since been stripped down. The rarity, even in their heyday is why only the top artists got to use them. ´The Beatles used a Helios console. So did The Stones. Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and David Bowie. And I've got the very one David Bowie used to record "Low" and "Heroes". He loved the sound so much that he signed it.

(WHILE WE ARE SHARING SECRETS)

Focusrite sent their engineer down to my studio to get in on the magic and emulate the rich sound
of my Helios console for their digital "Liquid Channel" product range

(SHHHH - DON'T TELL ANYBODY!)

THE HEXENMEISTER


Clemens Schleiwies - Producer, Mixing Engineer, Wizard

I love music so much that it brought out the magic in me. So I can now take nearly any kind of music and mix it into something truly spellbinding. Because I just love big, plump, voluptuous, curvy, warm ... uh - - SOUNDS. OH. That's right, we're talking about online mixing here, aren't we?
Well I love that too.

STEP 4

I'll send you your magic back to you via Dropbox. When you play it, be sitting down. Magic has a powerful effect on people. Listen very intently. And more than once.

I'll send back your re-magicked track. The magic is all yours. We repeat until you'll give your enthusiastic final OK. But remember I can only do this once or twice.
