Cameron Lister on SoundBetter

Based in Los Angeles for the past decade I got my start at the historic Sound Factory & Sunset Sound recording studios. Since then I have worked as a recording engineer to Producer & Mixer Tony Hoffer, as well as independently producing, engineering and mixing.

I love all parts of the music creating process from production to engineering and mixing. I look forward to hearing what you're working on and how I can help fulfill your vision.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Cameron did an exceptional job mixing one of my latest songs. He stayed true to the song but also added some elements to create more depth and make the overall mix a lot stronger. He was prompt in his responses and delivered his mixes according to his suggested timeline. I'll definitely be working with him again soon!

    Cameron is an absolute pro - not only are his mixes technically bang on, but he is extremely versatile stylistically. Each time I gave notes or sent references, they were interpreted beautifully. Work for me was done promptly and in a super organized manner, and the artist and i both love the results. Give him your money!

    Cameron was great. He took the song and made it sound better than we could've imagined. Huge, open and heavy exactly where it needs to be.
    He was fast with the mixes, and really receptive to the few notes we had on the first mix and came through 100% with the final mix and master.
    We're so grateful and would definitely work with Cameron again!

    This was my first time working with a mixing engineer but Cameron made it so easy! He took time to answer all my questions and listened to each critique (even if they were written in the least technical language possible lol). I'm very proud of the finished product:) thanks Cameron!

    Absolutely amazing engineer. Best I've worked with yet! Worked promptly, very efficient, and fantastic sounding mix. Took a dull sounding rough mix, and turned it into a BOP. Thank you so much, Cameron, for your hard work. I'll be reaching out again shortly!

    Cam is an awesome mixer. Not only talent wise, but also musical trust wise. I trust that he will identify musician tracks, spot on for the song...and if not, he will let me know. Cam is great , easy to work with, and always reliable for a great, clear and upfront sounding mix!

    Cameron was great to work with - very patient and easy going which was important for me as I was slow to work with. The first mix wasn’t quite as I wanted, but he took my feedback with no issue at all and absolutely nailed the next mix - a particular nod to the bass tone. Really happy with the results and I’m looking forward to releasing it across various digital platforms soon.

    Cameron rocked the mix again! Quick and spot on. Always knows what to do with it, without having to explain much at all! I highly recommend him. Very easy to work with, talented musically and has a great ear! Made the track sparkle and fit into a nice "pocket."

    Cameron put together an amazing mix for us on a song we were having a hard time getting the right sound out of--really great communication, listened to our input well, and added a lot of oomph to the track. I would definitely be excited to work with him again.

    Cameron was the right person I needed to finish my EP after many months of delay. He was quick to respond, quick to send new mixes, and he definitely cared about the songs just as much as I did. He's highly recommended!

    I had a couple of songs that I wasn't sure to put on the record but once I got mixes back from Cameron I fell back in love with them again. I heard my songs go from simple to next level thanks to Cameron's mixes. I'm looking forward to working with him again in the near future.

    Cameron was great; really laid back and patient which I appreciated as I was slow to work with. I ended up giving quite a specific brief which he absolutely nailed - really great mix that I’ll be sharing on various digital platforms soon.

Interview with Cameron Lister

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

  2. A: There are so many. John Fratelli is an otherworldly talent that I've had the good fortune to work with. Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois for the sonic landscapes they have created over the years. Tony Hoffer.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: A combination of Pro Tools HD, a ton of plugins from Soundtoys, Valhalla DSP, FabFilter, iZotope, and a few choice pieces of analog gear including ProAc Studio 100s, Classic API Summing, LA2A, and excellent microphones.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: I think my strongest skill is my ability to objectively listen and make strong choices based on those observations. What elements are the most important to help convey the emotion of the material? Do they need to come forward more? Is there something preventing the most dramatic impact?

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

  8. A: Alternative/Rock/Pop. A pretty wide range of material.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: 1) ProAc Studio 100s - I gotta be able to hear what we're working on! 2) Vintage U47 - If it doesn't sound good on this... then it doesn't sound good. 3) Aurora GTQ Preamp - Modern and classic sounding. 4) Empirical Labs Distressor - Easily the most versatile compressor in existence. 5) SM57 - A great mic and hammer for putting together that island hammock.

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

  12. A: Getting to work with some of the most creative artists in the music industry and continually being inspired by the art they create.

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Both bring their own unique strengths to a project. I can't imagine not using one or the other.

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

  16. A: Mxing, Engineering and production. Typically working with artist to find the best way of combining analog (real drums, guitars) and digital elements (synths and programming). From the very start of a song through mixing.

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

  18. A: Processing signals in parallel, whether with compression or distortion, is a powerful way of adding excitement to a mix.
