Nathan Hardy

Music Producer, Engineer

Nathan Hardy on SoundBetter

I write and tour with the band Microwave (mcrwv.com). I'm proficient with Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Melodyne, and VocAlign. I'm an encyclopedia of music. I'm confident that I can help make whatever project I work on as good as it can possibly be.

I've toured internationally over the last 6 years and written the lyrics/vocals and much of the instrumentation for 3 LPs, an EP, and 2 smaller releases with the band Microwave. I started recording/editing/engineering in 2016 and have since become proficient with Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Melodyne, and VocAlign. I'm a wizard with all sorts of comping, editing, and tuning. Let me work on your project with you and I promise you'll be glad that you did!

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

  14. A: First, I prefer to get stems for demoes and to play around with the composition/arrangement to see if I can help make it better.
