Christoffer Borg on SoundBetter

Big sounding rock and metal mixes!

I like big sounding mixes with lots of punch and impact. But mixing is very subjective and my first and utmost priority is to make YOUR mix sounding the way YOU want.

    Chris is very professional. He has a thing with frequencies and delivered mixes that were big and clean. He was also open to different ways of cooperation as long as the desired end result could be achieved.
    Not only that, he was efficient, patient, and neat, and tried to attend to our needs with every revision.
    Through the process of working with him, what impressed us the most, however, was his genuine passion for music that could be felt even by just communicating remotely.

    Thank you!

    We had some songs to mix and master and we've chosen Cristoffer to work on our release. Now, when the work is done, I can confidentely say that it was the right decision.

    Christoffer is a true professional. He works pretty fast and it doesn't affect on the quality of his work. The process was well-organised from the strart. Chris helped us with choosing of the best sound and was incredibly patient and polite working on the mixes. Final mixes are incredible!

    Thank you, Christoffer!

    Christoffer was trusted to take my album, a 10 year bucket list goal and make it sound awesome, AND HE DID!!

    No one other than myself touched this work so you can imagine my joy when Christoffer sent through the first mixes.

    He was blisteringly fast at his work, responsive, friendly and followed instructions and changes diligently. Given he lives in Sweden and I'm in Australia, the time difference wasn't even a barrier for us.

    Christoffer, you're a legend mate! Thank you!!

    I just finished working with Christoffer for the first time and I could not be happier! He was extremely helpful,friendly and talented. I am new to recording and he helped me through all the steps and made things as easy as possible for me. The end result was a song 10 times bigger and better than what I gave him. Chris is a genius and I highly recommend working with him! I look forward to working with him again.

    Christoffer nailed my mix with his mastering prowess almost instantly, and with almost no adjustments needed. I was like, "This is impossible, I need to criticise at least something.., ." But Christoffer made it happen, and I wasn't dreaming. Salute.

    Christoffer is just amazing
    I strongly recommend him because of his professionality and taste
    He's not only a top-class sound engineer but also a musician himself, and this is a plus for bands
    I will surely spread his name around

    Chris is very fast and does a highly professional job. He was easy to work with, listened to our suggestions (even when we were crazy or contradictory) and worked his ass off to deliver. Highly recommended!

    Look Christoffer is a great engineer that is no doubt. Our song was rescued and made to sound great so we have Christoffer to thank for that...BUT wait that's not all...He is such a stand up, down to earth dude that we are sending all the other songs of our EP to him too! Proof that he's good.

Interview with Christoffer Borg

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

  2. A: I mix and master songs.

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

  4. A: Jacob Hansen, CLA, Joey Sturgis, Adam "Nolly" Getgood, Andy Sneap, Jens Bogren

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I work exclusively in the box in either Logic or Pro Tools. I use Adam A7x and Sennheiser HD650 as monitoring. I have used this combo for many years and I am very comfortable with it.

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

  8. A: Organization of the project (color coding, naming of tracks, grouping, comping etc) Mixing drums first and vocals last.

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

  10. A: I try to bring as much energy and emotion to a track as possible. But everything depends on the song.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: I know what I want and how to get there.

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

  14. A: Rock and metal.

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

  16. A: Lower your listening volume.

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

  18. A: I would like to work with Blind Guardian becuse they have always been my favourite band.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Fat sounding and punchy.

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

  22. A: I have been recording and mixing for the last 10 years and been doing it professionally for the last 5 years.

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

  24. A: Computer, soundcard, microphone, guitar and keyboard.

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

  26. A: Don't rush your desicion.

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

  28. A: That I do editing and occasionally magic. I can't magically transform a bad recording into an amazing mix. But I can make it good or at least better.

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

  30. A: To make a flat recording into a big and open mix. That's amazing all the time.

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

  32. A: I promise to do my absolute best to make my clients vision come true.

  33. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  34. A: Digital. I really like the ease of use. My workflow makes it easier and faster to get to where I want. But you can't beat the sound of a good analog compressor or EQ. I add that stuff when I'm recording. But a good mix is not about cool gear or great sounds. It's about balance and emotion. If you can get that, no one will care whether you used an analog or a digital compressor.

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

  36. A: I am extremely proud of working with Evergrey on their latest record called "The storm within". During the recording I got the chance to engineer and record the guest vocals of one of my all time favourite singers, Floor Jansen from Nightwish. It was a dream come true.

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

  38. A: Yes, I work very closely with Top Floor Studios. If I'm doing a recording, that's the place I'll go. When I was the studio assistant, the owner Jakob Herrmann taught me everything there is to know about producing/engineering and is a big part of the one I am today.
