Jeff Juliano
Mixing Engineer

“On Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” I used F6 on all of the vocals. In my opinion it is the most transparent tool to get the vocal out front while controlling any harshness or sibilance. While mixing and programming the drums on this project, I used Smack Attack to reshape and often automate the attack of the drums to make parts jump out in the chorus of the song.”
