Mixing/Mastering Engineer

William Luke Jenkins on SoundBetter

Hey guys, I am not a famous mixing engineer who's name is known around the world. BUT, I do have the chops to make your music sound the best it can be. With over 10 years of dedicated experience, I have honed in how to mix and master with the best of them. I had to, out of necessity. I wanted MY music to sound amazing too! Let me do that for you.

First and foremost;

I am a musician. A guitar player for 20 years, and have been playing professionally for 7 (on going).

I graduated form Media Tech (2007) here in Austin, which taught me the ins and outs of the music industry. Ranging from; Recording, mixing, mastering, live sound, ADR, 5.1 surround sound, and even, music business.

I have been producing electronic music for the past 10 years, doing everything myself.. including mixing and mastering. Through that experience I have painstakingly learned how to become proficient in the art of making music sound good through speakers. My newest project goes by the name "Loose Chip", if you would like to hear what I can do.

I have mixed/mastered everything from Acoustic Folk, Funk, Pop, Hip Hop, and of course EDM/electronic music. I am a perfectionist, and I will work with you until you love what you hear.

Thanks for stopping by.. Cheers!

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: Arrange and pick your sounds carefully.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: Electronic.

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: I bring a good ear, and someone that cares enough to make the song the best it can be.

  17. Q: What's your typical work process?

  18. A: First, I listen to their song, as is. Then I will drop the tracks into Ableton and start labeling, grouping, then structuring gain. At that point, I usually start with the drums and work my way down the line, EQ-ing, compressing, saturation, and effects, etc...

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I use Ableton X as my DAW, and an UAD Apollo X6 w/quad satellite as my interface. I mix all "in the box" because I feel as if UAD has really nailed the analog sound, so I see no need to complicate the process with outboard gear. I have a well treated room on top of the Sonarworks reference 4, which corrects any dips or peaks present. So, I can really hear what is going on and work on EQ-ing the SONG vs. trying to EQ the song to my room.

  21. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  22. A: Tame Impala, Tipper, Odesza, Haywyre, Elbow.. The list goes on!
