Kauner Michael on SoundBetter

Music is about storytelling - my approach to mixing revolves solely around conveying feel and emotion.

After cutting his teeth at the world renowned Westlake Recording Studios (Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Alanis Morissette), Kauner left Westlake in late 2021 to assist mix engineer Jeff Jackson (Bob Marley, Post Malone, Brent Faiyaz, Ariana Grande).

Kauner mixes for clients wide and far. Kauner specializes in pop, R&B, alternative rock, and the singer-songwriter genres.

    Kauner knows a thing or two! His seamless professionalism and open communication make for a comfortable environment when it comes to working through mixes changes, deadlines, etc. Aside from that, Kauner is an incredibly skilled mix engineer that has a great ability to really make your songs shine in quality.I was quite impressed and am currently making more music just so I can work with Kauner again!

    Working with Kauner has been an unexpected but amazing journey! We started working together late 2019 and since then, he has been my go-to vocal mixer for ALL of my tracks. He has great attention to detail and was very open to mixing a style that was new to him. He's also very open to critiques and edits which is very helpful to any artists out there! You won’t regret working with him!

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kauner almost exclusively for the last year. His attention to detail, his versatility with regards to sound and genres, and most importantly the smoothness of the process makes him my go to guy with any mix. Without a doubt this man puts the needs of the client first, and I always send my tracks in knowing they’re gonna sound great when they come out on the other end. Don’t miss your chance!

Interview with Kauner Michael

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both. We capture and reproduce music in the analog domain; what goes on in-between those two steps isn't really important to me, as long as the performance and production are inspiring and emotive.

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: What does your production make you feel? What are you expecting from the mixing process? How can I best serve your artistic vision?

  5. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  6. A: I can only make you sound like yourself – which is the most special and unique thing you can offer the world!

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

  8. A: Less is more – the magic is in the performance and the composition.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: Engineering jargon is largely uninteresting to me. What I can tell you about my setup is that everything in my signal chain has a purpose, and that purpose is to present a song in its best possible light.

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

  12. A: Mixing and recording.
