Great working with Travis, as always! Very happy with the mix he created. Very talented!
Second time working with Travis, he's fantastic! Very professional and highly skilled mixing engineer. He delivered a super high quality mix, and sticks to deadlines. Communication is easy. Will definitely be hiring him again!
Has been a great experience work with Travis. He is very professional and gave me calm and security about my work with a fantastic job. Thanks!
Travis is a quintessential piece in my mixes and my music. From mixing mu tracks to educating me step by step on what's going on in them my mixing knowledge, sound, and ability has increased 10 fold working with him. I've probably done 15+ tracks with him and he's my go to.
Travis was super cool and patient and knocked every note I had to perfection every time. His mixing skills are amazing I promise you will not be disappointed, if you are, I'll pay for it.
An absolute pleasure to work with! Completely professional, yet extremely friendly and honest if you need advice or an opinion. His mix has brought my vision for the song to life. I'm glad I worked with Travis and look forward to doing so again in the future.
talented, supportive, listens well and delivers great results.
Such a pleasure working with Travis, once again!!!
When you are used to working with people in the music industry, it's nice to work with someone like Travis. Soooo professional, and so reliable. Always gets the exact sound we want. Only negative point... if you work with him once, you don't want to work with anyone else. ;) Thank you!!!
Second time working with Travis on a Mix. Like before, he sent the first mix pass off in the right direction and after a few tweaks we had a final mix. I had a lot of vocals on this mix and Travis was able to get everything sitting right in the pocket. This was not an easy song to mix, however Travis hit all the right notes.
If you're looking for a professional mixer, Travis is right up there. His rates might be a bit more expensive, however it's definitely worth it.
Travis is great to work with - highly skilled, responsive to feedback and revisions, super friendly, and delivers with fast turnaround. The mix sounds amazing! I can't wait to work with Travis again. Highly recommended!
Travis was a consummate professional from the get-go - he understood the artistic vision, and expanded on it to create a polished product that I was extremely happy with on the very first pass. Will definitely be returning to Travis in the future.
He was very polite and sincere.
Wonderful engineer who has both power and efficient!
Great experience working with Travis! First time user of Sound Better. He is definitely a professional mix engineer and I've worked with some notable mixers. The first mix he delivered was really close, however I'm particular and we ended up doing five revisions. Travis was there every step of the way with timely communication and a great attitude to make sure it was RIGHT.
Would definitely work with again and would recommend to others. His mixes are tight, punchy, and exciting.
Second time working with Travis and it's just as amazing as the first. He's done both an EDM / downtempo track and a 1960's style funk track for me and both were excellent.
Just imagine exactly the way you wished your mix sounded. If you want that dream to become a reality then pick travis to mix your song. He has a profound ability to bring a mix to life and give it mass appeal. Thanks so much Travis!
Travis brings my mixes to the next level every time without fail.
I enjoyed every second working with Travis. He catches the vibe of the song and does magic. It seemed like he was able to read my mind because even the first mix sounded exactly as I had imagined. He is very organized, precise, and delivers quickly. I highly recommend Travis and we will definitely be working together again in the future.
Always so quick and easy working with Travis!
Third time going back to Travis this week. He knows what he is doing so everything comes back fast and perfect, couldn't ask for better.
Great work as always !
Travis is a life saver. I'm excited to do more work with him in the future. Super fast delivery!
Travis has been crazy helpful in educating me on how to get better mixes. He gets back to me extremely fast and is open to any and all questions I've had. Fantastic experience and will be working with him again!
Second review on Travis. Second 6 stars out of 5. After finishing a mix for me, he let me buy some time to give me a masterclass on some tips that I've always wanted to know about. Great guy, great knowledge, even more impressive after hearing him talk about his theories of mixing.
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Travis is incredible. His work product exceeded my expectations, but what really stood out was the communication and attitude. I was a little bit nervous using this service and finding someone through a portal like this, but Travis quickly changed my mind. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
A class act. Travis is a consummate professional who always delivers a beautiful sound. I'm very grateful for the time and care he puts in to mixes, aswell as his excellent communication skills.
Amazing work! Highly recommend for mastering on any track!
Great Work and fast turnaround ! A pleasure to work with.
I love this guy! Super professional, works fast, great ears and exactly what I could dream of (and more). Would definitely work with him again!
Travis was very professional and found the sound on the first mix. Great ear, great mixing engineer!
Travis is awesome to work with! He's super quick with turning around notes and has an intuitive understanding of where I want to take a track. His mixes are always creative, thoughtful and take my production to the next level. If you like working with smart talented people then look no further and hit him up!
Travis did a great job on my instrumental piano track. He is very professional and has a good ear for mixing and mastering to make a song fit in with the popular songs of the genre.
Travis is super fast, super professional, super patient, answered to all my requests always with a smile, I will certainly work again with him, thanks again !!!
Travis did an amazing work on my newest track. Totally different vibes than my previous songs, but he managed to mix and master it as it should sound. Just perfect. Looking forward working again and again.
Very pro and easy to work with! Always a pleasure! Delivers fast and almost every time perfect from the first mix.
Travis is amazing! He gives creative feedback, has good ideas, and really spends the time to understand the sound and feel I was going for. I'm really happy with our first mix together. Highly recommended.
Extraordinarily thorough Mix Engineer who provides first class service. I trust Travis to create a professional sound without compromising on my vision. Thank you!!
This is the second time we've worked with Travis.
What a nice, professional and reliable person to work with!!
Not only did he do an amazing job, once again, on the mix, but he also brought new sounds and ideas to our track as an additional producer.
Looking forward to our third collaboration!
Thank you Travis!
Real professional! It was a real pleasure to work with Travis. Hope to work again in a future.
Travis is a top professional and talented engineer! He made my track come to life and shine in a way I didn't think possible. He helped me give the track the "vibe" I'd been searching for. He really took his time talking to me about my track and also about every step of the process, making sure that I was 100% satisfied with the final result. I'd highly recommend working with Travis!
Travis is very quick to respond, very professional, and a pleasure to work with! He's also very skilled and was able to produce the mash up I needed only after a few turns! Would definitely work with him again!
Travis was fantastic to work with! He was super receptive to my notes and lightening fast with the edits. His mixes are extremely cohesive and thoughtful with each instrument having its own space, and most importantly they sound radio ready. Would definitely work with him again - if I could give him six stars I would!
Travis is very quick and amazing at what he does. He made my track sound amazing and can’t wait to work with him again on my next songs
You know when you're trying to find the right person to mix your track? Well... we found him.
Incredibly professional, open, trustworthy, reliable, with great ears!
First collaboration and excited for the next one! Thanks!
Travis was totally professional and did a great job. I would recommend him to anyone.
Travis was very professional and helpful from beginning to end. He knows he's craft and has great attention to detail. He's done an excellent job tuning vocals and delivered one day before the estimate date. I'll keep him in mind for future work.
Travis took my track to the next level despite limitations of my stems. Super receptive about feedback and tried all my ideas. He was also willing to explain in detail what he'd changed and the more technical points of his mix. The track was sounding great from Travis' Mix 1, and he was willing to work with me to get it all the way from there.
My experience with Travis was rather unique but I must say he is the most honest and patient engineer I've ever met on Soundbetter. Do yourself a favor and give him a shot. You will not regret it.Thanks Travis.
Travis knows his stuff. He took my song to the next level with a mix that added both polish and punch. He's a true professional and a great guy, easy to work with and quick to implement any notes I had. You won't regret having him on your song!
I have worked with Travis on numerous projects, he is my first call for Mixing! He can mix all styles of music from live instruments to programming or electronic music. He is great work with!
Travis is my first call as a mixer! His quality of work, and professionalism is the best I've experienced. He is equally adept mixing live acoustic instruments, as he is with programmed and electronic music. Can't recommend him enough!
Travis is an incredible mixer and engineer. I have worked with him on multiple projects and he is always my first choice! He is such a pleasure to work with and the quality of his work is impeccable! Truly one of the best guys in the business!
Travis is a phenomenal engineer, mixer and producer. I've worked with him on many projects and am consistently impressed with the quality of the final mix. He provides a comfortable recording environment while maintaining a productive and focused energy. Not only is he knowledgable with his craft, he's extremely efficient in finishing the project.
I have worked with Travis on multiple projects. He is very skilled mixer and I was very happy with the results. I've worked with quite a few engineers in the past years, I'd have to say that Travis is one of the most pleasure to work with. He gives suggestions whenever needed but has no egos and always try to achieve what I'm going for.
Interview with Travis Ference
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Definitely! If I can't get your mix into my schedule then you need to check with Martin Cooke and Cameron Lister to see if they can do it. If I was making a record I'd hire them to engineer and mix it in a heart beat. Corey Britz is a spectacular all round musician and producer, he can probably do any job in this business. Nik Hughes is one of the best drummers and percussionists I know and is my first call.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I might be too expensive. If the project is inspiring to me I want to do it. Music is why we all got into this business. If I'm enjoy your music then I want to be involved and we can find a price that will work for everybody.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think my strongest skill is to support the artist's vision. If I'm mixing I want to be sure the mix reflects their rough mix but taken to the highest level possible. If I'm working in a room recording an artist I want to be sure that I do what ever I need to do to keep their creative flow uninterrupted and effortless.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: The studio is a well treated control room ideal for mixing and a single live room large enough to easily accommodate a drum session. We have a great analog front end made of up Neve and API mic pres, various compressors, and a vintage Sound Workshop 34B console. The studio is Pro Tools based and includes an impressive plug in collection for in the box and hybrid mixing.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I spend most of my time working on pop music. I look at pop in a very broad sense. Whether it be alternative or indie or something that sounds like Top 40 radio. It's got hooks and the artist wants to appeal to the masses, it's pop in my book.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't write off the use of filters to just clean up sub frequencies or create DJ style effects. A lot of interesting things can be done with some creative filtering both as an insert or in parallel. Try experimenting with filtering something you wouldn't normally filter, or changing resonance settings.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Lo-Fang. Engineering and mixing both his debut album and follow up EP were amazing experiences. I grew a lot musically during those sessions. It changed not only the way I approach a mix or a recording, but also how I listen to music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing is the most common type of work I do for my clients. I also do a lot of editing and tuning for various engineers and producers around Los Angeles.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love music. Getting to listen to music all day and being part of the creative process is what makes me tick.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: My first contact with a client typical involves discussion on the music, deadlines, and budgets. I think it's important to get to the point of whether I'm the right person for the job musically and if everyone's schedules line up to meet any deadlines.
