Joe Vegna (SWE)
Hi, I'm Joe Vegna. I'm a mixing engineer and music producer based in Sweden. I have my own small studio outside of Stockholm and travel all around to work in different studios with different artists. Even though I work a lot with artists recording and producing, most of my clients I have never met. We work over the internet sending files back and forth and there's a lot of Skype. With my classes at Profound Studio I want to dig into specifics and really give hands on advise that the students can start using straight away. I like small classes so there's time for questions for everyone. Themes I'm hoping to dig into are mixing, recording, producing, mastering & delivery formats for streaming services. I've been working in the music industry for 20+ years and started my own label 5 years ago.
