Getting your ideas done right and quick. Without ruining your budget.
I am Thomas. This is my +5 Armor page. I specialize in a multitude of things but I mostly focus on mastering, sound design, and producing video game music and EDM. I have uploaded my samples of work which I made all my self. Every synth I have made, every sound I have edited to make it work and stand out in its own way. I have been working on music, recording, and producing in Logic Pro for 9 years now. For 6 years I was a college instructor at the Musician Institute where I taught sound design and EDM producing. I have been mastering for 5 years freelance for EDM and hip hop producers mostly. During 2014 I was sponsored by Roland to design sounds for the JDXI and Integra-7 synth which you can download the sounds on the Roland website. Or hear my work on the JDXI by pressing the play button on the first preset. Went on to demonstrate at the 2015 NAMM show. I am very open to helping with making your music ideas a reality and I am very reasonable with prices. After being a entertainment tech lead I understand budget is important. I am open to majority of style of music as well. Your country death metal jazz core project needs some production or pads I am down to help.

Interview with +5 Armor
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I have done a lot of mastering. Most of the people I work for just send me a wav file and its my job to make sure that a it sounds like the rest of their music. I make sure that everything is balanced so if you played any music from the artist it felt the same and not out of place. I also do a lot of sound design. Living close to theme parks train stations and private airports I have unlimited amount of sound I can record and use to for foley or video games fx.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use a Mac Pro 2009 full upgraded. and for my interface I use the Integra-7 that I have customized to have the same audio to digital conversion as an Apollo. I have a FA08 grand piano and over 3TB of samples and synths. I have a R-26 filed recorder. And many mic but my favorite being the Korg contact mic
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I treat my work just like an other job I will work until the project is complete.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I enjoy all types of music but I really get inspired by watching movies which than I break down what movies do into a music format. I enjoy how a movie can make you feel every type of emotion and that what I try to bring into my work.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Brain storming ideas and helping get project on the right path.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I love EDM and video game music I really enjoy the freedom of both styles.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you want a synth to be really wide you can copy it and pan it hard left and right and sample delay it to make it wider. If you are writing a melody and you want to make it bigger just add a 5th. Or same with a bass line just filtered out just and it becomes a lot warmer.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work blizzard video games sound design team they are amazing. I enjoy the sounds they make. I feel like it would be an honor to work on there team.
