Jesse Ford on SoundBetter

I will ensure that the message of your music gets across to your listeners properly. This is my goal, not to show off my technical skills but to serve your music. I pay close attention to each section of every song, each vocal and instrument to make informed decisions about the way I will mix to achieve this goal of an impactful music experience.

I'm Jesse (aka Jeppe), a Musician and Audio Engineer from the east coast USA. I have over 10 years of experience recording, mixing and mastering music. As well as writing and performing!

Short list of my achievements:

Worked in multiple professional recording studios (most notably Eightsixteen and TraxEast, NJ) Began building my home studio in middle-school.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Jesse Ford

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

  2. A: Marianas Trench. Their albums are so epic and huge sounding, not to mention they are concept albums, which means that they have a story. As an audio engineer I'd just be honored to work with them, as a musician I'd love to get a glimpse of their creative process and philosophies.

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

  4. A: Reference tracks can do amazing things for you! You need to have a good idea of what a good mix sounds like, in all sorts of genres. And having a reference track or two in a session while you work so that you can solo it and compare your mix, it eliminates the guess work. And having a monitoring tool that can solo the middle and sides of your monitoring chain do wonders for analyzing as well (check out ISOL8, it's free!)

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

  6. A: Rock and Pop. I've also done Metal, Jazz and Hip-Hop.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: My analytical skills. While mixing I often cross reference my mix with multiple well mixed songs that I've known and loved for years, I do this so that I can analyze what steps I need to take to bring your song to that level.

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

  10. A: 10 years of experience as a writing and performing musician, audio engineer and music lover. I love music that is well written AND well mixed, it gives me goosebumps. That is what I want my mixes to do for you and your listeners.

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

  12. A: I load the song into my DAW and listen intently. I then listen to some reference tracks for a bit. All the while I am taking notes about how certain things sound in the reference tracks versus my clients song. I then create a plan for how the mix will sound at the end, and note down any specific techniques I believe will help me in achieving that mix. And then I get to mixing!

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: KRK Rokit 5 monitors, Fiio K5 Pro headphone amp, Sennheiser HD650 open-back headphones. Motu M4 audio interface. As well as a solid state U47 inspired microphone that I built from microphone-parts.com!

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

  16. A: Josh Ramsey, Jeff Buckley, George Martin, Rick Rubin, Andrew Scheps, the list goes on!

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

  18. A: I mix artist's and band's songs.

Terms Of Service

I typically allow 2 revisions but I'm flexible. Turn-around time depends on the complexity of the project/amount of stems etc... but I would say 2-3 days for one song.
