Kristo killed it in this mix. I had a very layered song and was looking for a certain sound. Kristo listened to what I was looking for and made it happen. My mix sounds amazing. So talented and hard-working!
Kristo gets it right every time! I'm so happy I originally connected with him to mix my work. He is super responsive and has an ear for the detail. And my song was mixed super fast!
Love love love the mix Kristo created for me. If you want a quality mix and fast responses--work with Kristo. Very talented!
Per usual, Kristo never fails to deliver! So happy with the results! My track has improved 1000%!
Kristo was super helpful and made my song sound 1000% better. He was super receptive to my comments and worked with me to get the best mix! He wrote back fast and was super quick in making adjustments. I will hire him again, no doubt about it!
Interview with Kristo Kassin | KSN Audio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: It sound lame but I'm proud of myself for putting my own KSNX artist name, music out there for anybody to listen instead of creating it directly into a drawer to be forgotten. I'm also proud to offer my services to those in need of help - i acknowledge there are many fantastic professionals out there and i hope to become one for somebody with my work as proof.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Endlessly creating my own new tunes for anybody to enjoy.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Unfortunately not yet, but i would definitely recommend anyone who's work i trust.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. While analog was the granddaddy of many things, times change and more interesting and potential solutions come in digital form.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to always do my best with any job i take, regardless of the amount paid. I can't keep myself calm and content unless i know my potential customer has received my best effort or possible outcome.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love music and everything it encompases. Especially its power to mute the outside world 'noise'. I love to lose track of time and focus on the experience of creating something new from nothing. I also get great pleasure when i can share this emotion by sharing music or helping somebody achieve their musical potential.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Just starting out - no SoundBetter FAQ yet. But i will update once i get questions. Anyone looking to see a FAQ about my personal 'artist project / career' can see it here - https://kristokassin.wixsite.com/ksnxmusic/faq
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It often comes as a surprise that not-so-mainstream music producers don't swim in swarms of money and fame.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I would definitely like to understand what is exactly expected of my work. Any guidance of personal preference is greatly appreciated and will help me achieve positive results in the end.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to define your needs as acurate as possible and give me some time to focus on your project - i don't well under time pressure.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Well... assuming i have electricity - my PC, monitor, KB, mouse, headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been making music since 2006. I have recently found myself to be confident enough to offer mixing and mastering services to others in need.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Very space'ish and ambient inspired, even with more straightforward sounding styles like dnb or dubstep for example.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Any artist really where i could learn something new or even teach other about any solutions.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I've noticed i tend to over-do my productions and they eventually get messy, so definitely less is more when it comes to enjoyable production. Quality over quantity.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic / Instrumentals - progressive, house, drum and bass, dubstep, techno
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Instrumentals - matching different sounds together in a mix so that they don't fight each other for a space to thrive in.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Usually, i try to find interesting sounds which sit well together and seem to have a purpose in the mix. I really like to space it out with reverb. Emotionally my tracks tend to be "stuck in time" and any variations are sometimes hard to spot, but they are there ;)
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: As a producer, i start to sketch out any sound compilations until i feel i have tapped onto something special. From there i will try to develop it further. As a mixer, i use more data/plugin assitance in balacing the tones and any harsh tones. I try to make it perfect for a mastering engineer to continue. When doing mastering on my own, i try not to over-do with the limiting so that the song doesn't lose its character and doesn't start to sound bad. I try to keep it compressed enough but also saving harmonics in order to make it sound authentic on any speaker. I also take into account where the track is supposed to land - CD? Spotify? Radio? - it all matters.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a humble homey setup consisting of PreSonus Eris 5 XT monitors speakers, Sennheiser HD 380 Pro studio headphones and a beast of a personal computer.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Approacing Black, Jay FM, Naden, The Midnight, Sellorekt/LADreams, WRLD, Kromestar, GLXY, Malaky, Alix Perez, Icicle, Pola & Bryson - just to name a few of my many favorites :)
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Just starting out, but i'm hoping to help clients with any mixing / mastering / production or even audio restoration work.
