    Steve is by far the most talented producer I have worked with. He understood each song and built a well-crafted track around them. Steve truly made the songs come to life. He was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend. Top level service and a talented professional.

    Best producer I've ever worked with. I've hired several of the top tier guys in this site and non of them comes close to Steve.

    Not only is the sound quality amazing, but he truly cares about your song, and ha pours himself fully into the track.

    If your looking for amazing sound quality, ingenious creativity and industry level production, Steve is your man

    I love his sound design. It is magical how everything comes together in his productions. His productions have a very rich, full sound and he will bring that high quality to your track. I have already made several tracks with him and will definitely do that again. He's not good, he's phenomenal.

Interview with Steve Wilmot

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

  2. A: People probably don't realize how heavily involved I am in the actual basic song. I'm a believer that a song needs to stand on its own with an acoustic guitar or piano before we press into more involved production.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: My production space houses new and vintage preamps (API), vintage guitars, vintage drums, world percussion, tube compression, an 1/8" 8-channel Tascam tape machine, an expansive vinyl collection, and a world class microphone closet. Oh and there are plenty of posh candles and incense.

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

  6. A: Denny White is a masterful writer, producer, and singer who I HIGHLY recommend! Alex Strahle is a superb guitarist who I hire for just about everything I work on.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I believe in a healthy balance of both! I love the warmth and character of analog, but I also love playing with the endless possibilities of digital.

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

  10. A: For years I was a rock drummer and bassist (must be a rhythm thing!) and I was pursuing my lifelong passion of writing and recording music. I was a studio engineer for years, constantly traveling and meeting new talented people. During that period I was constantly writing beats and instrumentals, and eventually someone really wanted them! Since that turning point I've had the privilege of writing and producing full time with amazing and iconic artists.

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

  12. A: Sidechain compress your vocal delays so they don't interfere with your vocal ;)

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

  14. A: I can bring just about anything to a song! I write, produce, perform many instruments, and I often sing bgv's. I love sound design, creative harmonic movement, and dynamics.

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

  16. A: I usually get files from people and go immediately into the laboratory! I love to play with audio and begin to craft right away. I get quickly inspired, and I usually don't stop working until I have something I'm really proud of on day one.

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

  18. A: I'm inspired by record producers who are great at every stage of a song's process from conception and writing, to producing and engineering, to mixing. Some amazing examples are Greg Wells, Danger Mouse, and Rick Rubin.

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

  20. A: Quite often people come to me with an acoustic demo of a song and we mold the basic song itself into something truly special. Then I'll produce a track, add their vocals, add all of the special sauce, and mix/master it. I'm a one stop shop from beginning to end.
