Amazing timelines in finishing the project with quick updates. My track was taken to a wow level and this is definitely not the last. Great work JR! Will definitely recommend working with him
Awesome job cheers!
Awesome work, thank you
John a great job of mastering all the tracks I needed and was very responsive and professional throughout the process. Would recommend.
Great experience, John did a fantastic job on the master. Fast, reliable, professional and very good communication!
Big Label Sound ROCKS! So quick and nailed the sound I was looking for. I'll be back.
John Rogers did an amazing job mastering our track. He had a fantastic master ready for us within a few hours of receiving our proposal. We asked for a few tweaks and he had them ready within a few hours again. The whole process, including changes, took 24 hours. We are very proud of our track and he gave it the professional quality it needed.
For the money a great product, easy to work with and very understanding!
Very quick response times, good suggestions for the song and most importantly a great final result. Recommended.
It was great working with Big Label sound. Will work with him again this month.
A true pro, pleasure to work with, great work!!
John Rogers did a P H E N O M I N A L job on my project! I would never have thought my tracks would have ever sounded the way he made them sound. Truly S P E C T A C U L A R! It could not be better! He made my tracks sound even better than what I expected. If you want your music to sound the best it can, then you DEFINITELY should look no further!
Interview with ——————-.......
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I'm very good at what I do, and my clients love the results! I'm getting paid to HELP people and bring them JOY!! It doesn't get any better than that, my friend!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I just mastered a song "for free" that was written for a little boy who was dying of cancer. I was happy to be a part of that project. But I work with SO MANY clients that have AMAZING projects. I'm very happy and proud when I finish each one! Everyone including the clients, we're all happy and proud when we finish a great project!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have two EPs and a 12 song CD that all came in today. 2 Hip hop and 1 Rock. I'm working with a guy with a Classical CD and one with a Jazz CD that will both be uploaded within the next two days. As I type, just got in a spoken word project, 8 songs. Busy weekend for me!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much for mixing and mastering? I Answer - It depends how many channels you have per song. How many do you have?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: For me it's when someone says, "Mastering is just making a song louder." I say "for me" because "I" do A LOT more in the mastering process!! But, there are lot of mastering studios out there that don't go through the same processes I do. "Make the songs louder" is the ONLY process they know!! Not good....
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: If they have a reference they would like their song to sound like? Can they make changes in the mix if necessary? Do they have any special request they're looking for like - extra warmth, more bass, etc.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look at their website, listen to their samples, get a free demo if you can, and don't over-pay when you don't need to. I get re-work mastering jobs from engineers charging $100 a song! It doesn't happen often, but it does happen a few times a year. Those who charge $50 a song, I get re-works on their jobs every month! Just because someone charges a ton of money doesn't mean you're going to get a great finished. product!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Computer w/ cubase and kontakt 5, mini midi keyboard, mic, speakers and a huge solar powered battery -- for power.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The vocal is the most important part of a song. Make sure it's recorded with some inspiration, make it thick, and make it clear in the mix. Give it some space!!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Like everyone else, 80% of the work that comes in is either Rock or Hiphop. But since 1999, I've mastered at least 100 CDs in EVERY genre there is!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being able to make songs sound the very best they can. Make them sound how they're supposed to sound, not just "louder." I can also easily match any reference you might have.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I definitely bring the BEST PRICES for the results I will deliver!! I also personally work with the client to make it sound the very best it can. Even if that means I have to tell them what they need to do to correct in their mix so we can get it there!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Some want analog. Some don't care.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will make your songs sound the very best they can, and if you don't like my work you get a full refund. It doesn't get any better than that!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Started in 1997 in Michigan, then to NY, then Los Angeles, and now Las Vegas.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Professional and Personable. I treat others and their projects the way I would like to be treated.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Anyone who uploads a project to my site! I love mixing and mastering music and put no preference on a "celebrity artist."
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends on the project. But close communications with the client and fast professional work is part of the process for every client.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use top-of-the-line equipment both analog and digital.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by EXCELLENCE! If anything is excellent in any genre, I'm a huge fan of everyone involved.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
