Mixing and Mastering Engineer

Aravinda Krishna on SoundBetter

I am a producer, mixing and mastering engineer from India who specializes in producing EDM, Pop and R&B under the alias ARWND. I have been making beats and mixing for local artists for the past 2 years. My main goal is to work closely with artists all around the world and contribute as much as possible to the industry.

The mixing and mastering techniques that will be applied to your song are:

Additive and Subtractive EQ
Multiband and Parallel Compression
Reverb
Delay
Harmonic Saturation and Distortion
Stereo Imaging
Autotune (if necessary)

*No presets will be used and processing will be done from scratch*

Here's what I will need to get started with:

Stem files in WAV/MP3 (320 kbps)
A rough demo of your song which you want to get it mixed and mastered
A reference song as a guide (if necessary)

Looking forward to working with you!

Interview with Aravinda Krishna

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: As an artist, I have never been satisfied with any of my work so far though they are enjoyed by thousands of people around the world. However, I am proud o my single 'Change Your Mind' which is there on spotify. It is a common artist mindset to never feel completely satisfied with their works and to always improve though they cannot achieve perfection which is impossible.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working on producing my first album.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: So far I haven't come across any.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital as it is quite convenient and less complicated

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: To exceed their expectations and satisfy them with the final output.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I can be creative. It is as simple as it sounds.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: I have been asked if the prices for the service I will be providing are negotiable, I don't negotiate. I know my value.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: I haven't faced a situation like that. I just get my clients what they want and they are happy with it.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I'd ask about the kind of vibe they are aiming for in my production. When it comes to mixing, I'd ask them for a reference song so I can use it as a guide to mix their track.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Have a conversation with your provider and try to make up your mind if he can meet your expectations from his service he will be providing and study his work.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Headphones and Laptop with long lasting battery will be more than enough to get me started there.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I have been into music ever since I was 4 years old. I started off with leaning to play piano. I started to play guitar when I was 15 and finally started producing when I was 18.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I don't have a signature sound for myself. I just produce what sounds good to me at that point

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I want to work with Skrillex for sure. I want to understand his thought process in detail and be creative with it.

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

  30. A: Experiment with new sounds to understand and learn new sound design techniques. Don't just sleep on presets

  32. A: I work on Electronic Dance Music, Pop, and R&B

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest part of producing is coming up with catchy melodies

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

  36. A: I prefer keeping the listeners attention throughout the track so I always make sure I break any repetitiveness in my production and always surprise the listeners with something new.

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

  38. A: When it comes to mixing and mastering I always have a reference track with me so I can have an idea of how my mix should be sounding in the end. It makes my workflow easier and faster. When it comes to production, I either start with vocals to build a song from intro or start producing the chorus of the song and build an entire track around it.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I use Audio Technica m50x as studio monitor headphones, Kali Audio LP6 Studio Monitor speakers, Audient ID4 Audio Interface.

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

  42. A: Skrillex has always impressed me with his unique and versatile productions. I have always liked the way he experiments with new sounds and can perform magic in his studio. If there is something important to learn from his, it is to enjoy whatever you are doing and give it your all.

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

  44. A: I provide mixing and mastering services for my clients. I also make beats for rappers and produce original songs from scratch for singers.
