Jake Kodweis on SoundBetter

Transform your solo act into a fully produced song for commercial release. Full instrumental tracks, vocal production, mixing, and mastering.

I work with independent artists to create fully produced tracks. We'll take your song, or song idea, and work together to flesh it out into a full-blown production complete with instrumentation. At the end of the project, you'll walk away with a final master ready for official release!

Already recorded your tracks and just need standalone mixing and mastering? I do that too :)

    We can’t recommend Jake highly enough! Our duo went to him to have an electronic song mixed & mastered. He was the perfect blend of professional and approachable, and made the whole process as stress-free as possible. We are extremely pleased with the final result, our song sounds amazing and we have Jake to thank for that! Looking forward to working with him again!

    An extremely talented mix engineer!!
    And a great teacher
    Jake made my vocals sound great, not an easy task!!!
    Took one of his courses and also learned how to make my vocals sound, well, good. But with a bit more practise of the techniques I learned, they will be great!!
    Highly recommend him for both a mic engineer and a teacher
    Do yourself and your subpar vocals a favour!!

    It felt like finding the Holy grail when I found Jake!
    Very professional and when he says'I'll have something for you by the end of the week' you WILL have something by the end of the week! He's transformed my songs from ok to 'Wow! I didn't know it could sound that good! He's a true gent and a true talent, most HIGHLY recommended! If I could give him more stars then I would!

    I contacted Jake for some mixing work outside of his normal "rock" realm. He worked with me in finding the right way to handle the project. The final result was great!
