    Once again, Christian makes the process simple, easy, and fun. No nonsense means more time spent making music!

    Christian was great! He gave me everything I needed to deliver a nice track. It's nice to work with people who really "get it," and he does!

Interview with Christian Brown

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Honestly my own band's new song that isn't released yet. I produced it myself and recorded and mixed everything. There's zero reverb used, all the ambience comes from the mics, mostly everything is just one take, and there's no doubling of anything, yet it still sounds really full. It's the most "real" sounding thing I've ever made and I can't wait for it to be finished.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working on mixing an EP for a local post hardcore band called Ghost of Gatsby, a full-length for a sarcastic ragtime/jugband group called Dead Sprites, and two songs for a local dance/music school called Sound of Light. Also a song of my own that I also produced and recorded.

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

  6. A: Liquid Mastering. Thaddeus has been my mentor for years and I send most of my work to him if I can.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital. Analog is great, but I don't have the money or time for it.

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

  10. A: My laptop and interface... and an SM7b with a cloud lifter. Desert islands moisture and humidity would be hell on a condenser mic.

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

  12. A: I have been working as a freelance audio engineer for 4 years. I've worked my way up to this being my full time career in that time, and also becoming the studio manager for Sprout City Studios where I work predominantly.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Naturalistic.

  15. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  16. A: I would love to work with Third Eye Blind.

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

  18. A: A dry vocal with good tippy top EQ stands out really well if the tracks you're given are drenched in reverb.

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

  20. A: Usually pop-rock type bands.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: Recording Drums or editing vocals.

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

  24. A: My goal is to only bring what the song needs. I try not to overdo my fingerprints on anything I work on and leave the performance and/or production feel in tact.

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

  26. A: Organization is number one. Get clean tracks to work with first and foremost.

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: During the quarantine my state is in, I am relegated to my home office. I work mostly in Logic, but also have and work in Pro Tools, and Reaper. Running a Tascam 208i as my interface. Waves Gold bundle plus a few extras, Slate digital everything, most all of the Boz Digital Labs stuff, Soundtoys, Izotope RX 7, etc.

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

  30. A: I think that Steve Albini is total genius. Greg Wells is also phenomenal.

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

  32. A: Most of my work is recording, mixing, and producing/writing songs for my clients. I manage a studio in Eugene OR, so I end up doing a lot of different things for my eclectic clientele.
