WOW! .... Second track with Doug, this time an EDM/Pop project.... Oh my Lord... For many years I have always imagined having one of my edm tracks mixed to this standard, at last it has finally happened. I now have a powerful song yet can hear every instrument in a clarity I did not think possible, Doug literally made my dream come true... Don't bother using anyone else if you want a professional mix, Dough is your man....
If you want a pro radio ready mix don’t hesitate, Doug is the best I have come across in all my years making music.. his first mix was awesome and needed no changes at at all, the guy is a total perfectionist and offers a truly amazing service... I cannot get my next song to him fast enough...
Doug cared about my music enough to scrutinize the finest of details. He is a true gentleman with a kind heart and enough raw talent to bring your music to its highest potential. You can not go wrong hiring this gem!
If you're looking to make your songs reaching the highest level audio quality, don't search anywhere else and hire Doug right now. We're so grateful to him. We gave Doug our first EP (6 tracks) to be mixed and we just don't have no words to express how happy we are with the result. Doug is a really nice person, very reactive and with some amazing mixing skills. Thank you so much Doug for the great experience and the chance we had to work with you!
Doug was a great fit for our project. He navigated our head space and delivered a fantastic mix down right off the bat. Very timely communication and follow-through on tweaks. The master sounds even better than we imagined. Definitely would work with Doug again & again.
Doug is an absolutely incredible talent! Highly recommended!
Once again Doug did an amazing job with our song! He never disappoints! Thanks Doug!!
Absolutely nailed it!
Really makes your track radio radio completely worth the time and wait
Another awesome experience working with Doug. He truly cares about every project! Highly recommended!!
Doug continues to be one of the most reliable, hard-working masters of his craft not only on SoundBetter, but anywhere. I must have had the dumbest, most nit-picky tweaks in this most recent mix and Doug never once complained, working with me until it was perfect. I cannot recommend Doug highly enough -- I sometimes feel like I write music just so that I can hear him work his magic turning the song into something really special.
Another awesome job by Doug! Clean and thoughtful production and was quick and responsive to edits. A satisfied customer!
Always a great experience working with Doug. Honestly, what a dude
Doug is my go to mixing man!! He kills it every single time.

Doug is friendly, understanding and professional! nice quality of sounds he makes!! highly recommend.
Just finished up my second full production with Doug. The song came out amazing. He turned a demo of a good song into a radio ready great song. His hard work was evident in every second of the track.
Besides his immense talent Doug also happens to be an extremely kind and warm person. He is just about all you could hope for when hiring a producer. I promise you will be happy with his work , and come back for more.
As always, awesome mixing from Doug! Absolutely recommended!!!!!!

Doug KILLED it again. I cannot stress how important it is to find a mixer like Doug who not only gives you a sonically good mix, but finds the X factor in your song and brings it to forefront so that your audience listens to your song over and over again.
Doug Weier always takes my songs to a whole other level! He's great to work with.

Doug is the BOMB-DOT-COM. We're a mastering studio and we get tons of mixes in to work on. Doug is definitely one of our favorite mixers who sends us projects regularly. He not only makes everything sound good sonically, but he serves the song and does it justice. The whole point of what we do is to get people to WANT to play the song again after they hear it the first time. Doug will get people to do this, but many times over and over again. Don't second guess it. Hire him.
Interview with Doug Weier
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Most recently I did a remix for rock legend "Skillet" that was feature on a deluxe version of their album. My role was Producer, Remixer, and Mix Engineer.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do whatever it take to make sure you're extremely satisfied with your mix/master. If my clients aren't shocked with how good the first mix sounds, I feel like I haven't done my job.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love taking something raw and making it into something polished and radio quality. It's extremely satisfying and rewarding!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Do you do alternate versions such as instrumentals, edited versions, track stems, performance tracks? Of course I do! And it's included in the price of the mix;)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What commercial reference would you like your song to match? Every song is different but it helps to have references for clear communication and mutual understanding of the sound that we're aiming for.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Never hesitate to ask questions about the process. There are no dumb questions. I'm happy to arm my clients with as much knowledge as I can.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've played in bands and started touring right out of high school. This allowed me to learn production and mixing from veteran engineers as I was going through the recording process with the bands I was in. I've been in music production for just shy of 10 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Modern top 40 radio sound for the most part. Although, I also love getting down and dirty with more indie sounding stuff when the mix calls for it.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to get the best possible performance, quality and consistency in the tracking process because that allows for the best possible final mix. I know it's not always possible, but it's a great thing to keep in mind during the recording process. "Fix it in the mix" should be a last resort.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my production background in the mixing process. I often augment drum sounds with samples and even add production elements to my mixes to make sure they're top notch.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work and my favorite work is mixing. I love taking raw tracks and turning them into a polished, radio ready work of art.
