    Doug is awesome to work with! I felt like I've made a great partnership with him since he is the few that knows what sound I'm looking for. If you would like to hear the track he mixed, the link is https://soundcloud.com/christopher-pinon-944258596/lumacity-dont-let-go. We will be working with Doug on our next song!

    Sincerely,
    Lumacity

    Doug always deliver. He is a great talent and there is no hesitation he is on his way to being at the top of the mixing game. Highly recommended. This guy knows what he is doing. Very musically oriented but with the technical knowledge.

    Let me put it this way: I sent Doug a song that sounded pretty bad and it came back sounding really great!

    Doug crushed another mix/master once again!

    Another killer mix straight out the gate from Doug. He's always so thoughtful when crafting his mixes because he looks at it through the lens of songwriter/producer. He's great about revisions but to be honest he does such a great job from the start, there's very little need for any.

    Sometimes our songs can suffer from an identity crisis, and it’s not really the mix engineer’s job to work the kind of magic that fixes it.
    That’s why I’m so thankful that Doug was gracious and patient enough to do several revisions until this last song was perfect.
    The mix/master sound so good that I can’t stop hitting repeat! 😄

    Doug is a rare find. He has the utmost respect for an artist's work and always tries to be true to their vision. His only agenda is to make the song sound amazing and realize its full potential. A very talented engineer/producer, and a pleasure to work with!

    Doug is amazing at what he does and also great to work with. His communication skills are outstanding - he keeps you in the loop as the project progresses. I can honestly say this is the first time I ever got a mix back that was truly what I wanted in every way! I highly recommend him.

    Once again Doug knocked it out of the park, and on his first attempt. I feel lucky to have him on my "team" because he brings something so new to my songs and makes me hear them in ways I didn't think were possible. I plan to work with Doug again and again -- he's the best!

    Seldom do I get a first mix that blows my socks off, but Doug really did a brilliant job out the gate. Everything from then on out was fine tuning for which he made himself available whenever neccesary. He's a good dude with a great ear that really fits with my vibe. Cheers to working on some more tunes together!

    Doug aka UNIKRON is a rare talent. His attention to detail, inventiveness and creativity are inspiring and the results are stellar. We've worked together on several projects now and his mixes and production ideas always sound mind blowingly cool. I can't recommend him highly enough. To put it bluntly, Doug is superb at what he does. Su-perb.

Interview with Doug Weier

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

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

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

  6. A: I love taking something raw and making it into something polished and radio quality. It's extremely satisfying and rewarding!

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

  8. 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;)

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

  10. 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.

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

  12. 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.

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

  14. 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.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. 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.

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

  22. 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.
