Jonathan Rosen

Producer / Artist / Engineer

Jonathan Rosen on SoundBetter

I have began being a musician when I started playing the piano at the age of 4. After going through a Russian conservatory where I learned how to perform and learn music theory. I then moved to Berlin to study music full time and after graduation I have opened my own studio where I can work with the best of the best.

I am offering Songwriting, Production, Mixing and Mastering services.

Together as a collective of creatives and Engineers we work together to ensure that we can output the best work possible to you as the client. Our mission is to create a competitive portfolio that can push our clients to where they need to go while sitting down with them and guiding them through the creative process. (This could be as early as the songwriting stage if the artists are involving us with their decisions)

We have started the studio as a collective since we did not feel like we fit into any other studio framework and we really liked the idea of working together to allow for a much more competitive sound.

What we lack from experience we make up for in our modern sound.

If you choose to work with us we can ensure you that we will focus on making this experience as enjoyable as possible without compromising on the final result.

Thank you so much for reading through this. I know your time is valuable.

Interview with Jonathan Rosen

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Im taking the time this year to focus on my own production and pushing my capabilities as a sound designer.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Doesn't matter. All that matters is if it sounds good or not.

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

  6. A: I will promise you that no matter the result of the process, the journey through the process would be enjoyable.

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

  8. A: I love the nerdy stuff. Honestly pushing knobs and refining a track is something that gives me joy.

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

  10. A: First I always like to take the time and talk to my clients. (Usually meet in the studio) Get to know them really well, what they went through and how did they come about both musically and personally. From there, it is about understanding the music and what exactly did the artist intend to create and depending on that we might need to go back to the production phase and fix a few things in order to proceed to the mix.

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

  12. A: I think the most important thing to look in an engineer is his philosophy. At the end of the day I believe that engineering means using technical tools creatively to enhance the overall picture of the track. I believe that this is the basics required to know in order to understand what mixing is. Anything after that is a matter of taste.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: I believe that every song has a base processing that needs to be done right. after that it is a matter of taste and style. I will do whatever it takes in order to let the artist's identity shine through the track and create a full picture for the listener to enjoy.

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

  16. A: Its all about the VIBE! The way I see production is a lot of world building that is surrounding the core idea. what is the aesthetic of the sound that you are trying to go for? and how would you like to achieve that?

  17. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  18. A: Anything from Trap, Hip Hop, Pop, EDM, these are just to name the few of my last projects. As I live in Berlin I get a lot of electronic work sent my way otherwise my specialties lies in Pop.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: Currently I believe that mixing is my strongest skill together with songwriting - melodies, my production and mastering are coming close to my mixing capabilities as I am spending much more time perfecting the art of production. This also helps promote the other skills since there is a fine line between production and mixing.

  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: I help to guide the song in the right direction starting from songwriting and ending in mastering.

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

  24. A: I usually arrive to the studio early in the morning and the way I work with my clients is that they come in and we work together because being an artist I believe in having the person who creates the music helps to shape the direction of the project.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: We have a physical location designated for audio engineering and music making, our aim was to invest as much as needed to allow for the best sound quality with custom made acoustic treatment and acoustician to create the room.

  27. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  28. A: Currently I have been inspired a lot by Dua Lipa and her producer Ian Kirkpatrick. Kevin Jonas and his new album “Spaceman” also made the list together with Majid Jordan and their newest release “Waves Of Blue”. I do listen to anything from Hip Hop to EDM though.

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

  30. A: The clients that come through my studio usually require mixing and production.
