400Reuven_Amiel_BW3

Reuven Amiel is a unique mix engineer who has come full circle from analog consoles and tape, to mixing only digitally in-the-box, to his studio today which combines the best of both worlds, a hybrid analog-digital setup, with a software DAW and plug-ins, analog summing, and integrated outboard gear. “If you are looking for flexibility, the Dangerous Music products give you freedom,” states Amiel unequivocally. “I don’t feel like a slave to a certain sound when I am mixing with Dangerous gear. I am not kidnapped by the sound of my summing or my compressor or my EQ. If I want color, I have the freedom to color the sounds in the way I want with other gear. That’s very important for me.” Amiel is working in his Miami, Florida-based studio with his ‘Hybrid’ setup featuring the Dangerous Music 2-Bus summing, Monitor ST monitoring and switching combined with the new Convert-2 DAC, the BAX EQ and the Dangerous Compressor.
