An experienced but ever-learning sound designer and mixing engineer.
I am offering mixing and mastering. I specialize more in Indie/Folk music but I am willing to learn and expand on your tracks of any genre. I use Pro Tools mainly and have some outboard gear at my disposal, of all different uses. I listen to the desired sound (maybe of a band or song that you like) and use that for reference. Above all, I love to mix and to see what new techniques I can use to get the sound you want. I attended the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences, and completed an internship at Electric Lady Studios. I am a fellow musician who can record remotely and bring a fresh voice to your work.

Interview with Nina Luther
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. I have good hardware and software plugins that will do the job. I don't have a preference because sometimes one piece of gear works better for one song than any of my plugins and vice versa.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: If they have any references as to what they want your music to sound like. Then I ask if there's anything specifically they are looking for in the song such as a heavy reverb at the end, a fade-out during a chorus, etc. Lastly I ask their desired turnaround.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Big Thief because I love their raw songwriting and recording style. It's very similar to how I write songs. Mixing any of their music would be a fun and experimental process.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Indie Rock, Indie Pop, Folk
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pair of Samson Resolv RX86 Active monitors. I record into my computer through my K6 interface. I have a synth module set-up comprised of the Roland JV-1080. Guitar and vocals are the main ingredient of all my recordings.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some musicians that inspire me are Big Thief, Haley Heynderickx, Fiona Apple for sure, and Hospitality. There is a simple sound that is made big or small by the production work. For some as well, there is a DIY element that makes it human and connects you to the music and the artist.
