My name is Luke Moorer and I am a Recording, Mixing, and Mastering engineer. Passion, professionalism, and accuracy are what you can expect when working with me. Currently I am running a special to all first time soundbetter clients of 10% off of mixing and mastering service.
At an early age, Luke Moorer was exposed to the sensual sounds of music. Luke started his career playing the drums in various churches. As Luke's talent progressed, he began to study and perform other genres of music including Neo - Soul, Jazz (Fusion and Swing), Reggae, Funk, R&B and Hip - Hop. Currently, Luke plays at a number of venues in and around Atlanta.
In 2012, Luke enrolled into the recording program at Atlanta Institute of Music (AIM). Recently, Luke has had the ability to work with #1 Billboard charting artist Casey J, producer MajorSeven (produced "Devil Is A Lie" Rick Ross), and Carlos Cahee (produced "Down Town" August Alsina). In 2015, Luke received two nominations for the 37th annual covenant awards. In 2016, Luke became a Recording Academy voting member. This gives Luke the privilege to vote on who will win a grammy each year.
Luke strongly believes "good planning and hard work leads to success". Luke uses industry standard techniques to address every song detail by detail, note by note to meet the unique vision of the Artist, Film Director, Music and or Television Producer.

Interview with Luke Moorer
Q: What are you working on at the moment?

Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to be committed to making their vision for the song a reality.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I enjoy bringing a song to life. I enjoy the process of balancing vocals and instrumental tracks and hearing an Artist appreciate the before and after version of the song.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that as a Mixing Engineer, I can click one button and bring a song to life. If you want a crisp song, then you need a crisp recording (i.e. no pops, cut down on sibilance, etc)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Tell me about yourself? What makes you passionate about this industry? How do you want your fans to feel when they listen to this song? When you hear this mix, how do you want to feel? What is your project deadline? Are you looking for tracks for a live show or a record recording?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I'm passionate about providing a project which matches their vision. The advice I have for a customer looking to work with me is comfortable in sharing their vision, and don't hold back. I'm passionate about quality and enhancing projects. They only way for me to make their vision come to life is if they communicate to me what they are looking for.

A: I bring excitement, clarity, and extra character to my mixes.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start each new project with a Consultation to understand the Client's vision for the project. Based on expectations set during our Consultation, I start the mixing process. To begin the mixing process, I start with editing and time aligning. Once I've completed those steps, I proceed with balancing vocals and instrumentation. Next, I add enhancements to the song. My goal while I am mixing is to create an accurate and enhanced version of the rough mix.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a hybrid studio. I start the mix off on my Soundcraft GB4 analog board and continue in Pro Tools with diverse UAD plugins, Lexicon reverbs, and other saturation and time based processing. Based on the song, I send the mix through my custom made summing mixer and a pair of Neve Style Golden Age Pre-73 preamps and or Focusrite ISA two preamps.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I find inspiration from Serban Ghenea (Mixing Engineer for Adele's 25 and Bruno Mars Uptown Funk), Dave Pentad (Mixing Engineer for Jill Scott), and Jimmy Douglas (Mixing Engineer for Justin Timberlake).
