R. Browne aka ShamsTheProducer on SoundBetter

Over 20 years experience in the music industry, toured with some of the top artists in the genre. Such names like; Shaggy, Sean Paul, T.O.K, Anthony B, just to name a few. I've also produced and mixed tracks for T.O.K, Sean Paul, Jimmy Cliff, Beenie Man... and more.

I am A Bass player (Reggae), first. Playing the bass guitar is my first love. When it comes to Roots, Rockers, Dub, Reggae music, I'm your man!
Aston 'Family Man' Barrett (Bob Marley's bass player) is my greatest inspiration as a bass player, next to my Dad :) (Glen Browne).
However, I do also enjoy mixing a great song.
My belief is that a great mix starts with a great song. The song inspires and encourages my creativity as an audio engineer. Coming from the days of analog mixers and tape machines, I can appreciate how technology has afforded us a simpler workflow and the ability to recall and alter even the smallest details of a mix to "perfection".
All my services offered here will be done remotely and will deliver electronically via wetransfer.com or email.
Looking forward to making great music with you!

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: When I'm done working on your song, it will sound better than before I worked on it.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love music, creating and making it all 'come together'.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Customers usually want to know the cost and a timeline. My response is usually, "What's your budget" and "it depends on the job or song".

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: I think a lot of people think its easy to mix or make tracks. Easy, so it shouldn't take that long. However, creativity takes time and good work takes effort and focus.

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

  18. A: I usually need ask 1. Whats your budget? 2. Whats your timeline? and 3. Is there a reference ?

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

  20. A: You should have a clear idea of what you would want done. This way you will be sure you're getting what you are paying for. Also, be open to suggestions. Good communication is key.

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

  22. A: My bass guitar, my laptop, MPC Studio and headphones.

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

  24. A: I started out playing in a band at age 9 or 10 years old. then went into audio engineering at 17 years old. Four years later (1997) I started my own record label and produced my first couple songs and I've been producing and mixing my music and for clients from then.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I'm a Reggae / Dancehall music producer musician.

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

  28. A: Go with your gut, music is about feeling and emotions. Close your eyes and 'feel' the music. Try not to be distracted by the visuals on the computer screen or the look of an artist. Pay attention to the sound.

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

  30. A: I usually work on Reggae tracks and all sub genres of Reggae (Dabcehall, Dub, Lovers Rock..etc).

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: My strongest skills are Mixing and Song production.

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

  34. A: My creativity as a musician usually helps during the mixing process. Also my experience and culture has given me an edge in terms of making Reggae/Dancehall music more authentic sounding.

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

  36. A: Work process depends on the client's requirements. After we agree on the terms of the arrangement, I usually receive files via email, dropbox or wetransfer.com. When I'm finished working on the track I send an MP3 for review/approval before sending the 'final' files.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have a simple home studio set up. I run a Mac (High Sierra), ProTools, JBL 308's and Avantone Mix Cubes. I work "in the box" mostly. its less complicated this way, especially when it comes to recalling a mix. I'v been an audio engineer for over 20 years and I'm experienced with analog sound so I know how to reproduce it in the digital space. So working 'in the box' is never an issue.

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

  40. A: I'm inspired by various different individuals. Timbaland, Dr. Dre, Dave Kelly, Sly & Robbie as producers and Glen Browne (Father), Robert Browne (Brother) and Aston 'Family Man' Barrett as musicians.

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

  42. A: I mostly mix songs for clients.
