Mason Parks on SoundBetter

I will give you a professional mix and master for an affordable rate.

I recently trained under accomplished engineer Bernard Johnson at Noize Factory Studios for nearly eight months.

I have mixed and mastered songs in genres such as trance, reggae, hip hop, pop and more.

I constantly listen to music and am very in tune with the sounds of 2019.

    Mason mixed and mastered a couple of tracks for me and absolutely brought them to life. He was able to expand the tones in the music I created and gave the songs he worked on for me, a much fuller and finished sound. Listening to those songs before and after Mason worked on them was night and day. He was flexible and has a broad understanding of mixing/mastering all genres. I could not be happier!

    Mason is a very dedicated engineer who takes great pride in his work. Ive worked with Mason on multiple tracks for both mixing and mastering and have been more than pleased with the results each time. Mason offers excellent feedback as well as being open to new ideas to get the best possible sound out of every track.

    Amazing job! Mason went the extra mile to make the track just perfect. He understood exactly what I wanted, added some great tips to make an even better product, and had no issue revising and putting in the extra work for my tedious requests.

Interview with Mason Parks

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: They are both great in their own ways. That being said, I use a lot of plug ins that emulate classic analog gear. They seem to be the best of both worlds.

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

  4. A: My promise to clients is that I will do my best to make sure that you walk away from our collaboration satisfied, even if it means making a lot of revisions.

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

  6. A: I love the problem solving. I've had jobs where it feels like I'm just going through the motions and not really thinking about anything, but I've found audio engineering to be stimulating.

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

  8. A: What type of feelings are you looking to bring out of this song? Do you have any reference songs you want me to use? Do you want me to optimize for a specific listening environment (i.e. car, headphones, club, etc.)?

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

  10. A: I would say to ask a lot of questions, even if you think they might not make a ton of sense to the person you're asking. You want to be clear about the service you are getting when it is your art and your money involved.

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

  12. A: I would love to work with Skrillex because he always brings something innovative to the table and I know that I could learn a lot from him.

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

  14. A: One music production tip I have is consider taking things out rather than adding stuff when you are stuck. The saying "less is more" is so cliche, but it really is applicable to producing. My belief is that the best producers are reducers.

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

  16. A: I bring every song I work on whatever I think it needs. If the client and I think that the song needs more energy, I'm going to give it more energy, and vice versa.

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

  18. A: I typically get everything organized, begin with a rough mix and then get more detailed as I go along.

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

  20. A: I am doing lots of mixing and mastering for a few producers and a band, all of which are friends or family.

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

  22. A: I worked on a little bit of everything last year, but I have recently found myself mixing a lot more electronic music. That being said, I still love all genres and don't desire to limit myself.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: My strongest skill is my flexibility in terms of music tastes. I'm tuned into how I think things should sound in this day and age, but I love to work with people to achieve their vision as well.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: My studio consists of my MacBook Pro, Apple Logic, most iZotope products, most Waves products, Yamaha HS5's, Avatone Pro Active Mixcubes and Audio-Technica ATH-M50x's. I also have several guitars, keyboards, and microphones, but I obviously do not use those for mixing and mastering.

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

  28. A: I'm inspired by Diplo because of his ability to innovate, Chris Lord-Alge for his amazing mixes, and Calvin Harris for his all around musicianship.

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

  30. A: I do mixing and mastering from my home studio.
