Benjamin T on SoundBetter

True to the source material and easy to work with.

I offer mixing and mastering services i.e. matching of levels, spectral and stereo images. I have over ten years of experience in mixing and music production in various genres, mainly rock and all its various sub-genres. I try to stay true to the source material and let it guide the mixing process. That said, I'm a believer that there's a limited number of ways to properly mix any given song. I try to figure out what each instrument is trying to be and then help it. So far this approach has proven to be effective.

Michelangelo carved the stone until he set free an angel inside. I try to do the same with my mixes.

Interview with Benjamin T

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

  2. A: At the time of typing this I'm working on an album by a local singer/songwriter. My job is to re-record some guitar parts, clean up the tracks, and mix.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Recording – analog, mixing – digital. This was you get the best of both worlds without having to rob a bank.

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

  6. A: It has to be the idea that a mix engineer can make a masterpiece out of a poorly composed, badly arranged and recorded track. Doesn't happen.

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

  8. A: I usually ask for reference tracks, and if autotune/drum-sampling/note quantising are acceptable.

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

  10. A: Listen to your mix really quiet for detail and really loud for harshness.

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

  12. A: I feel more comfortable with live instruments as opposed to synths, drum beats, etc.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: Attention to detail.

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

  16. A: I help it be the song I feel it was intended to be. I try not to interfere with that.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: It's a simple setup really – a treated room, an audio interface and a pair of speakers. A few gear pieces for guitar recording and re-amping. That's all I need for now.

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

  20. A: Andrew Scheps and Adam 'Nolly' Getgood are two of my favorites.

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