Abe Stewart on SoundBetter

Mixing for Khalid, Michael Franti, KillTheBuzz, American Idol and many more! Working in Los Angeles, Abe goes toe-to-toe with the best in the business elevating each artist's vision with his technique, ear and 10+ years of experience....and an Emmy Nomination along the way.

I pride myself on long standing relationships with each artist I work with. My goal is to create a mix unique to you, but still be competitive and up with current quality expectations. I believe a good mixer will make or break a release. As far as credits, I’ve been fortunate. I’ve done work for Khalid, Post Malone’s camp, Michael Franti, Nahko, Avalon Young, American Idol, The Voice and literally hundreds of super talented up and coming artists!

Let’s have a chat about your goals!

Highlight Credits: Khalid, Post Malone's camp, KillTheBuzz, Michael Franti, Nahko and Medicine For The People, Avalon Young, Rayvon Owen, American Idol, The Voice and literally hundreds of other amazing artists.

    Working with Abe was great! First of all it started with a phone call. In that way he could really get to know me and what I am planning to do or what my vision for the song was.
    He explained everything and I started understanding the process. After the phone call I was convinced, that Abe is the ideal mixer for this project. Today I got the end result and I can´t believe how well it turned out!! I am so happy, that I found my producer for the future!

    I'm glad I made the decision to work with Abe and invest in his services. His professionalism, mixing ability and friendly communication really impressed me, and I felt I wasn't just hiring someone through a computer screen. I would 100% recommend Abe's services to any singer/songwriter looking to take their craft seriously.

    Abe was brilliant. Hyper detail-focused, friendly and communicative and honestly went above and beyond to make certain the mix was to my liking. Did I mention fast? He was also fast! Abe is a pro at every level of the game and I'd recommend him to ANYONE who wanted a skilled engineer.

Interview with Abe Stewart

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Recently I co-produced and mixed Michael Franti's new EP. They needed a producer/mixer to come in with a 'young fresh sound' and I was lucky enough to get the call.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Digital.

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

  6. A: Less is more

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

  8. A: "How many revisions will you do?" That is a case by case answer. Ultimately we are gonna go until you are happy....but a 1db increase in the snare, on version 100 will not make or break the song. Overthinking is dangerous!

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

  10. A: Is the production done? A mix does not fix poor production. Make sure you are set and happy with all the recording, editing and production. Mixing will elevate, not fix.

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

  12. A: A seasoned, but youthful taste. I've put in my 10,000 hours, but I've also developed my flavor. I strive for a clean, loud, wide and warm mix. I know how to get there and I'm confident I can with your song.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I work in a very modern way. All in the box with Logic. Probably have every plugin imaginable, but I do have my favorites. My room is very well tuned/treated and I actually work at a standing desk! Very weird for music people to wrap heads around, but being on a modern/simple setup, it allows those luxuries. I find you work faster and relax more when standing :)

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

  16. A: I will not cut corners. We will get it 'there'

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

  18. A: Helping an aritst's vision happen. Seriously, I LOVE the feeling when someone says 'its perfect.'

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

  20. A: That a poor recording/production will be 'fixed in the mix.'

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

  22. A: One mixer is not equal to another and having ten different guys mix your song will result in very different versions. Find your guy and stick to him. I bring customer service, pop/modern techniques and vocal that will be loud, controlled and in your face. Let's give it a shot!

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

  24. A: Imac Pro, Logic X, Townsend Labs mic, FabFilter, Plugin Alliance.

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

  26. A: 10+ years. I grew up in a musical family of studio engineers. Basically started mixing at 2 years old haha.

  27. Q: How would you describe your style?

  28. A: Modern, clean, competitive.

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

  30. A: Pop, HipHop, Electronic.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Mixing, Editing, Vocal Tune.

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

  34. A: First thing is to communicate with the artist. My vision is a reflection of them. Then, get the mix balance right, take breaks and be deliberate with decision making.

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

  36. A: Mixing, mixing and more mixing! :) I work heavily in the Pop (radio ready) space, Urban and Electronic world.

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

  38. A: Mixers: Serban Ghenea, Jaycen Joshua and Josh Gudwin.

  39. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  40. A: Adam Neilson or Blake Bunzel.
