Remote Mixing & Mastering

Flying Aya on SoundBetter

Australian Audio Producer with 10 years of experience in broadcast environments. I efficiently produce, record, edit and master audio for radio and podcasts, as well as produce mix, and master (afro pop, dancehall) music.

My preferred DAW (for recording, composing, editing dialogue, mixing and mastering music) is Protools - utilising Izotope (RX) and Waves plugins.

I can also edit (news/ lifestyle/ narrative) podcasts in Adobe Audition, and Logic.

I work remotely (within a team) to produce scripts, (news and interview) questions and create templates for episodes.
- source or create music and production sound effects for podcasts, film and radio
- provide feedback and implement editing revisions from the creative team or client
- Mix, master and sound design the final episode

Examples of podcast series I’ve recorded/ edited/ post mixed on my website

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

  12. A: I usually recommend to remove compressors (especially if they are pre-sets and you are unsure what they are doing). Check the balance of your pre-mastered track and make sure your file is no louder than - 6 db. Make sure you add fades to isolated drum hits (to avoid glitches) and fade out effects to avoid prolonged reverb
