Jeff Wolpert Desert Fish Inc on SoundBetter

A multi-award winning engineer, mixer and producer Jeff Wolpert has worked with some of the biggest names in today's music industry in addition to a successful career working in film and television. He has traveled around the world from LA to Beijing recording and mixing with the worlds best musicians and loving every minute of it!

Listen, you’ve been working on your tracks for a long time getting everything to be the best it can be. Now it’s time to mix and you’re sure there is great music in there, but maybe you could just use just a little help digging it out. Getting an experienced and successful mix engineer to help would be amazing but let’s face it, all the time and money that would take just makes it difficult. Until now...

HI Folks. My name is Jeff Wolpert. I’m an award winning music engineer/producer and I’m here to tell you about a brand new service I’m offering through soundbetter.com.

Over the last 30 years I’ve mixed a lot of tracks for a lot of successful artists. What I’ve learned is that the best results come from collaboration. Working together I can help you get the results you’ve been looking for from your tracks. I'll look at things like tuning and timing, arrangement, space and dynamics working in my own place Desert Fish Studios on my favourite gear in the room I’m most familiar with and you can even listen in real time via the internet while you’re in your pyjamas or whatever listening where you feel most comfortable. Mixing together, no travel, no extra cost. You gotta love it.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    Working with Jeff was an absolute pleasure. He provided a fast turn-around on a very complex project and his mixing expertise certainly helped bring out the best in my project.

    I had a great experience with Jeff. I asked him to mix and master a song for me and he went above and beyond--allowing the song to play beautifully on all platforms. I loved that he wasn't afraid to experiment and try different things with the instrumental and vocal in order to turn the song "up a notch". Would definitely work with him again!

    Jeff is a great guy who leaves the ego at the door. Professional and easy to work with. He got the mix and the master done in a timely manor and completed revisions upon request. Hope to work with him again soon.

    Jeff is that rare combination of a superb artist and a superb technician. He instantly "got" what I was going for and he vastly improved the sonic character of my project. He has a unique ability to translate feedback into pure emotional results. I look forward to working with Jeff again.

    Very professional and very talented. Not only did Jeff take my track from a scratchy bedroom demo to a professional sounding song , but he mastered it to sonic perfection. Assisting with anything I asked including vocals , and made me feel very comfortable in his studio. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a professional job for a great price.

Interview with Jeff Wolpert Desert Fish Inc

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

  2. A: An espresso maker, a great chair, PMC monitors, Neumann mics and the best musicians in the world.

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

  4. A: More than 30 years now! I've always owned my own studio except for the few years I spent as the chief engineer of a large studio complex. Even then I was technically freelance.

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

  6. A: You really don't know if something works until you hear it.

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

  8. A: Mostly acoustic oriented.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: After 30 years of mixing I've got a deep bag of tricks to make things happen.

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

  12. A: I try to get what the song is about and mix in a way that re-enforces that idea.

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

  14. A: I listen until I get a good idea of what the song is all about then I start to mix. I love it when the artist provides me with a good rough mix to help me see where they were going.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I've got an analog/digital hybrid setup. A fully automated and recall-able SSL AWS 924 with full patch bay and tons of outboard gear along with a powerful Pro Tools HD system with literally hundreds of plug ins. I like to change monitors while I'm mixing for different perspectives and use models form PMC, JBL, Genelec, Yamaha and even a little Roland mono speaker.

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

  18. A: Most of the time I'm mixing. I produce a lot of the time mostly in collaboration with the artist.
