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!

  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% !

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