Jem was a joy to work with, easy to be around, very professional with a great ear. Jem delivered more than we hoped for and recorded the band live in a room as we sound at a show. Jem respected the band mixing notes and very quickly understood what we were going for in the mix. Delighted we've found someone who gets who we are - great experience Jem, will do this again :)
Jem might be one of the best kept secrets on Soundbetter. Guy has serious chops. You won't be disappointed!
Jem helped me produce, mix and master two songs and it does sound good, really good! Easy to work with and has the will to deliver a great result. The instrument/vocals stands out and doesn't get muddy or hidden and i think that's the way a recording should sound like. The finished songs was beyond my expectations. Highly recommend Jem.
Interview with Jem Renshaw
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring clarity and balance to my productions.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When mixing I go through two phases. The first involves gain staging and problem solving, where I eliminate problems such as room modes and establish correct mix-ready levels on my tracks. Then phase 2 involves focusing on the creative sound and making sure the track sounds clear and how the client envisions their music. I always mix to the mood of the music and highlight the tracks where they need to shine through.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I monitor through Yamaha HS8s in a beautiful acoustically treated room, using Burr-Brown converters on my PreSonus Studio 192. I mix using plugins by Waves, Slate, Soundtoys, Plugin Alliance, Neural DSP and various other established companies, in addition to using either Pro Tools or Studio One as my DAW.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by the hard hitting production of professionals such as Jens Bogren or Will Putney for heavier genres. In contrast, I also love the way Riley Bell has mixed Daniel Caesar to create such beautiful spaces in his records. I take inspiration from many many professionals, it's hard to name them all here!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording, editing and mixing audio to achieve the musical vision of the client.
