Sid M. on SoundBetter

I have written music for an Oscar-nominated short film, produced, mixed/mastered records found on Spotted Records(LA), Brooklyn Fire (NYC), T-Series (IN), Universal Music (IN), and many more. Experienced with Pop, Alt, and Dance. I would love to have a conversation about your song. A firm believer that the right approach is everything.

ABOUT ME:
Pop/Alt/Dance music producer & engineer. I work on commercial music for TV & Films (brands include Audi, Mercedes, LG, BMW & more), produce for my band, and work with labels and independent artists.

WHAT DO I DO :
My aim is always to produce a radio-ready single while keeping the sound of the artist alive. Understanding your vision and turning it into something people will love is my key strength.
- Create your track from scratch based on your vision
- Create a great track around your lyrics (Don't bother if the idea is rough. A good idea is GOLD. It's my job to make it sound dope!)
- Enhance your track with additional production
- Remix your song and give it a whole new twist
- Mixing & Mastering
- Vocal Production (Including tuning, suggesting harmonies and vocal treatment)

WHAT I DELIVER :
- Fully custom-made track for you -
Every record needs to tell a story, capture a vibe, and I understand that.
My approach to every song begins with a conversation, giving me an in-depth insight into the picture you want to paint for their listeners.

- The Spotify Test -
Your song needs to be on par with your competitor's music, at par with the artists that inspire you. I will do my research and make sure of that.

HOW I WORK :
I'll turn your ideas into full radio-ready songs. Unlimited revisions (with reasons!) till the song is awesome!

    It was a delight to have my tune produced, mixed & mastered by Sid.
    He knows his craft very well.. I can confidently say that with his participation, the song went from good to great. Looking forward to working with him again!!

Interview with Sid M.

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

  2. A: I've usually noticed some of my peers producing a full track and then realizing that it doesn't go very well with the vocals. Over the years I have come to the understanding that Vocals are the main instrument of your song. So like any other instrument will have a groove, vocals should do! When a producer is given a vocal track to produce on, they should spend some time studying it, finding the catchiest parts that they can further enhance and draw the listener's attention to with their instrumentation and treatment. This is probably not a technical music production tip but I feel these things are seldom spoken about and in reality hold more value than anything technical.

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

  4. A: I have worked on a lot of different genres - Soundtrack, Orchestral, Alt Rock, Classic Rock, Indie Pop etc. But I enjoy working on RnB, Pop and Dance Music the most

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: My understanding of the fact that a song needs to be on par with other songs that make it to Editorial Playlists on Spotify. Sonically it needs to sound crisp, clear, and punchy while production-wise it needs to capture a vibe and make people feel a certain way. I understand these things very well and gives me great clarity while producing o.r mixing or mastering a song.

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

  8. A: A great acapella is 50% of the work already done. The rest is my job. Right from creating a vibe with interesting sounds, to making sure the song sounds radio-ready and has the right energy level, from making sure it's hooky and memorable, to giving it the clarity and depth it needs in mixing. It's an elaborate process with a lot of back and forth. What I bring in is the clarity of how the finished product should sound like. And more often than not, I am on the same page with my clients. So everyone is happy at the end of the day.

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

  10. A: When I get a vocal track to produce on, I generally just listen to it a couple of times on loop just to understand what style of production, grooves, and elements will contribute to bringing the best out of it. Once I have an understanding of that, I would usually go to my piano and work on finding interesting progressions, chord voicings etc. At this stage, the focus is solely on the theoretical side. I tend to keep these processes independent because it gives me great clarity. Once I am on the production table, its all about sounds, compression, EQ and all kinds of nerdy things! What I obtained from the jamming process, I would then take all that to build the foundation of my production. I usually start producing by building a great beat/groove that drives the vocals forward. I might experiment with interesting arrangements too (If the artist is open to that) From that stage onwards, its fairly simple. I would spend hours creating the right vibe for the song. Every sound matters in creating a world where the song is rightly expressed. It could sometimes take a few hours, It could sometimes take a day or two. I like the fluidity and unpredictability of it. Not giving yourself an unrealistic deadline to meet helps you be fully creative and experimental. I love to mess around and see what works. The first idea is never the best one!

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: DAW for production is Ableton Live 10 (Its the best!) External synths include Novation Peak, Microbrute. MIDI instruments used are Native Instrument's Maschine & Komplete Kontrol S49, Roli Seaboard Musicman by Sterling, Fender Guitars Extensive Software instrument collection for Kontakt, Omnisphere, Serum (these three mostly get my work done) Mixing is usually done with the best analog-modeled plugins from UAD, Slate Digital, Soundtoys etc After mixing in the box I would usually sum it using an Analog Summing Mixer (Analog Warmth is everything!)

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

  14. A: Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park had a big role to play in my musical sensibilities while growing up. Recently sounds of artists like Illenium, Troy Sivan, Halsey, Ariana Grande have inspired me. From a technical side, the engineering work of Dave Pensado, Jaycen Joshua, Manny Marroquin has been truly inspirational.

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

  16. A: I usually produce for singers, both independent and signed to labels. The work is 360°: Production, Arrangement, Vocal Production, Mixing & Mastering
