    Brian is the best. The finish product is remarkable. His attention to detail was superb. The type of music I create is very unique using many subtleties in delays , and reverbs to create a unique space for the final product . Brian quicky responded to revisions and was able to add dimensions to the final mix ,
    He is the ultimate professional , with world class skills. Very patient and responsive to comments I had during the project .I plan to use him on all of my future projects . !!

    I had an absolutely amazing experience with Brian Losch. He goes above and beyond, is super clear and transparent, and despite all of the work he has going on at any given time -- his level of communication was consistent and courteous. I don't think my review will do justice to how fantastic the experience and process was, from the initial consult, the numerous touch points inbetween, to the actual execution. Not to mention, the final product is stunning! Highly recommended!

    I just love Brian. He is a great person as well as a great engineer. This is the second album I have done with him, and I know I can relax when I send him a project. It will be done right. Not everyone resonates with my music (improvisational classical), but he does, and I am grateful to have him on my team.

Interview with Brian Losch

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

  2. A: Acoustic music recorded in acoustic spaces. However, modern production techniques can be just as useful with a well recorded classical album and I often reference top radio mixes. My interests are eclectic: For example, I like to draw from pop productions for inspiration in making acoustic recordings sound larger than life.

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

  4. A: Typically I am part of a project from start to finish, which includes pre-production, recording, editing, and mixing. Many of my biggest credits are in the classical/jazz genre, but I have a depth of experience in a wide variety of music. I am increasingly involved in post production editing and mixing for a variety of music-based television and film productions.

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

  6. A: The mix starts with musicians, the space, then mic placement. It's much more important to get the capture right, then to attempt a compromised fix later on. (i.e. "fix it in the mix!")

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

  8. A: I come from a musical family and music production has always been an inherent skill in my life. From the age of 15 I began recording music and later studied music recording, jazz guitar and computer science at University of Miami (Bmus). I also earned a (Mmus) degree in sound recording from McGill University. I have worked and studied at the Banff Centre for the Arts as an audio associate and Tanglewood Music Center as an audio fellow. Moving to New York City to pursue a career as a recording engineer, I had the opportunity to work with renowned music producers and engineers which led to multiple Grammy awards and further opportunities not just in album production, but in television and film.

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

  10. A: Please provide references for a specific sound you are hoping to achieve. A production can go many different directions and it's best for me to understand what you are looking for so we are both happy!

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Technical problem solving. Many times I am hired to work in difficult spaces or given audio tracks that are in need of repair. In every situation I strive to bring out the best possible outcome for the music, audio, and production as a whole.
