Nick Ruffalo (Ruff) on SoundBetter

Hey! My name is Nick and I am a music producer, mixing and mastering engineer, songwriter, and ghost producer! I have worked on numerous tracks as a co/ghost producer, songwriter, and mixing engineer. On my own artist project, I have received support from artists such as Marshmello, R3HAB, Timmy Trumpet, Will Sparks, and others.

My specialization is within Dance and Pop music, with experience in the following genres:

Dance Pop
Progressive House
Future House
Deep House
Future Bass
Bedroom Pop

Whether you are looking for a full-blown production from scratch, mixing and mastering on your demo track, or tweaks and edits in your existing instrumental; I'm your guy if you want to take your production to the next level and truly find your sound!

I work based off extremely competitive prices, as I will give your track a full mix-down for $250, master your song to commercial loudness for $80, or both for $300.

I will tweak, edit, and finish your already existing production for $300, write lyrics to your track for $150, fully produce an instrumental for you with co-producer credits for $400, or fully ghost produce you an entire instrumental for $500.

I assure you I will give your track 110% and turn it into exactly what you visualize so that you can achieve your dream!

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

Interview with Nick Ruffalo (Ruff)

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

  2. A: Mixing & mastering, as well as production and lyrical work!

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

  4. A: My inspiration comes from a very mixed bag of artists, including The Chainsmokers, Journey, Gryffin, Hans Zimmer, Quinn XCII, Cheat Codes, and Lost Kings.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: As impressive as technology has gotten over the last decade, there is something about using analog modeled plugins that bring a certain "warmth" to your track you just can't truly achieve with digital. The last 1% !

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

  8. A: What element of your track was the "spark" that shaped and dictated your process? Now let's capitalize on that !

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

  10. A: I would bring my laptop, an unlimited power generator, my MIDI keyboard, Kontakt and Sylenth!
