Patrice Pruneau on SoundBetter

Music is about people, emotions and relations. Whether you are signed to a major label or do it independently, your songs should always hit where it needs to and make that connection. Let's talk about you, your songs, your music, and what drives you. Every project is unique and should be treated as well, with human contact.

But first, let me introduce myself:
I'm a sound engineer from Montreal, Canada, now based in London, UK. I've been working in recording studios for the past 10 years. I've worked with Major artists like Celine Dion, Mika, Cirque du Soleil, Corey Hart and independent ones like Reno McCarthy, The Flamingo's Pink, Soul Secret Agency, Rough Gentlemen.

Throughout my career, I have developed lots of different skills from editing voice-overs for AA video games to recording and producing indie bands as well as recording acoustic ensembles such as orchestras and big bands. I have also developed a loyal following for my vocal producing and mixings abilities. My six years at Piccolo studios have allowed me the opportunity to work on all kinds of setups from ''live of the floor'' through that big SSL board to doing great bedroom productions.

My goal is to help you achieve the vision that you have and create a mix that triggers the emotions you want to transmit. Communication is the key for it to work. If you're on a tight budget, we can always try to work something out.

So let's talk

    I've known Patrice Pruneau since 2010, at the begining of my carreer.
    We finally recorded 6 songs together in 2017 and 2018 and there is nothing bad I can tell about him. He is a true professionnal; a fast worker and he is always going to be there for you until you are ready to release your song. This man can do anything you want, has an incredible ear and really takes time to feel the artist's vibe. It is always a pleasure to work with him.

    Pat is definitely the best! We've been able to work on a large list of projects together and became my go-to engineer ever since. Cause he's not scared to push the boundaries and also because he has the skill to understand people so perfectly. Pat could read your mind and he's so fast that by the time you tried to finish explaining your idea he was able to concretize it.

    I’ve worked with Pat on a number of occasions, in a major studio where he recorded and mixed a Punk rock band I produced, as well as in a project studio where he mixed an album I recorded and produced, and as a mix consultant. It’s hard to find someone more enjoyable to work with. His versatility, talent and capacity to adapt and get involved in a project is amazing. He truly is someone I have no doubt you’ll love working with. I HIGHLY recommend him!

    Had the chance to work with Patrice back in Montreal in 2018 and 2019. He his the recording engineer and co-realisator of my band's first EP.

    During that time he did an amazing job in the rec booth but also while doing sound design and giving amazing advices and pointers in the mixing and mastering process.

    I feel privileged to have worked with such a skilled , professional, creative and wonderful human being.

    If you want a pro that will bring your music to the next level then he's the guy. I would not hesitate to work with him again and I hope it's going to be soon.

    Patrice is hands down the best engineer I've had the opportunity to work with. His recording techniques are on point, creative and always highly effective at obtaining the sound you're seeking with respect to a particular project. He has a beautifully intimate approach which I find complements your vision of a project, while keeping the necessary distance and meticulousness of a professional engineer. Furthermore, he has an outstanding ear for mixing and always delivers something that sounds authentic and well-defined. If you have the chance to work with this guy, I highly recommend him!

    Patrice is one of the best in the game! He is a very kind and easy individual to work with. His skills are equally strong in the room with the musicians as in post production. In the studio, he instills a great working vibe and reproduces amazing sound behind the console. His mixes are very tasteful. In our case, a natural and faithful reflection of the instrumentation and one of the best vocal mixes I've heard to date!
    I would definitely recommend and work with Pat again!

    Patrice is hands down one of the best producers/mixers I know. I have a had a good 10 years in the industry and I don't know many other producers his age with such talent. He is extremely intuitive, hard working and listen’s to the client's demand. And if by any chance you give him a bit of freedom of creativity, he will ALWAYS come up with something inspiring.
    I will keep always recommend him to whoever needs an album mixed fast and professionally.

    Patrice helped us a lot with the production of our first single. When it came to the album we had no choice but to go with him again and again for the following single. He is hard working, professional and creative ! He has a way to work around a song and make it something even bigger ! His producing and mixing were beyond any of my expectations. I would highly recommend you to work with him! I know I will for my next music projet!

    Pat is the man! Brings quality, a great attitude and immense talent to the table. He has what you need to get to the next level. One word: sharp. He mixed our project with ease and flexibility. No matter the size or complexity of your mix or recording session, he’s got you covered.

    Patrice is definitely one of a kind! He's got a great ear (which comes in handy when producing a track) and he knows how to work his way on a session as if it was an extension of his own body! Plus, he's a real down to earth dude. It's a always a pleasure to work with him!

    PS: You should hire him while he's still affordable, shouldn't last that long ;)
