Mixing Engineer, composer

Jack Wait on SoundBetter

Professional mixing and mastering for commercial release. Iv had the opportunity to work with lots of interesting and creative artists, as well as underground experimental projects in the UK and North America. I love working with artists with vision how ever out of the box that might be, and am comfortable working in any genre.

Education has taken up a large part of my life so far, studying audio engineering in Brighton (U.K), contemporary composition at Newcastle University (U.K) and Electroacoustics at Concordia University Montreal (CA). I have worked as a composer for theatre and contemporary dance, as well as a mix engineer and Producer. I am currently producing and mixing an album for Canadian RiotGirl band Dish Pit for Mainline Records, and am setting up a commercial studio in Liverpool U.K. Recently I have been leading sound collage workshops in Montreal for Queer Kids Create with the West Island LGBTQ Centre.

Interview with Jack Wait

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: For the last two years, I have been building a studio. I am lucky to have access to a woodworking and electronics shop and have built this studio from the ground up, from acoustic treatment to transformers and capacitors, this studio has been designed. Restoring unusual gear is something I am passionate about, and I have curated the sounds and characters of my unique analog equipment deliberately to provide something that a laptop and interface often cannot.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: The bedroom producer revolution has given everyone the ability to make professional music. This is amazing and has changed music in a global way. As most music is written and mixed in bedroom and project studios, mastering is where I find I can most successfully bring a track to life and up to contemporary commercial standard. Collaboration and fresh ears can go a long way, as a producer seeing the wood from the trees and honing in on the essence of a track is often what I find the artists I work with want, from there mixing and arranging become simple, building with direction and clarity to create a finished piece of music.
