Mixing and Mastering

Paul Kintzing on SoundBetter

Professional audio engineer with more than a decade of experience, specializing in working with DIY & home recording artists in a post-fidelity world.

I am a professionally trained, detail-oriented audio engineer with a focus on creative mixing, mastering, and production. I have over a decade of experience in the industry and am comfortable working with many different genres and styles, either remotely from my own space or in professional spaces.

Whether you and your band have gone into a studio or you've recorded some songs in the confines of your bedroom, my goal is to ensure the intention and emotion that's gone into your work is presented in the best possible way and is technically and artistically ready for release and distribution.

I also write and record music under the name German Error Message and work as a composer, scoring projects for film and TV.

Every project and budget is different. I generally work on a per-project rate basis rather than a set song rate - please reach out to discuss your project!

Interview with Paul Kintzing

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

  2. A: Mixing and mastering projects are the most common, but I find that clients sometimes have questions about other parts of the process, like self-releasing music or recording. I'm glad to share my insights into any aspect of the music-making process.

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

  4. A: Music made by independent musicians working in varying genres.

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

  6. A: Less is often more.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both are fantastic tools - there are things that you can do in the digital domain that you cannot do in analog and vice-versa.

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

  10. A: The process always starts with communication - I'll typically ask for rough mixes and details on the project as well as any deadlines, as well as going over the client's vision for the project. Once I receive the files and the deposit, I'll begin the work, sending versions for the client to review. I work quickly. Honest and timely communication is at the center of everything that I do.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Listening.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I work in a tested and treated space with monitoring that I know and trust. I use a variety of digital and analog processors depending on what the material calls for and direction from the client.
