Looking for most cost effective mix to your music? In that case look no further! For 3 years I've been mixing my own songs and trough my own work I attracted many artists to get their songs sounding clean and professional. For beats have a look at: https://www.beatstars.com/donthomaz/tracks

I've been producing beats for 6 years and making my own music on the side for 4 years now. After 1st year of being an artist I got tired of paying for mixing and mastering engineers who wouldn't care for the music or the clients. As a result I started mixing and mastering my own songs naturally with poor results at first, but as the time went by I started quickly getting better.

As soon as my songs started getting tracktion in my own country, many independed artists came to me asking "who mixes your vocals?". Being impressed by my work, they wanted me to handle their songs too. I'm not a pro by any means, but I would say I specialize making the vocals sound natural and sit well in the mix. I focus a lot of my time to smallers artists and thats why I tend to charge less money for my work. I also specialize in "non professional vocals" so room noise and other problems are no hurdle for me.

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

  10. A: Do they have any refrence song they like the sound to be modeled by and what kind of a vibe they want the project to have in general. Of course how much tuning they in vocals too :D

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

  12. A: Check the timezone of the provider and of course the price. I offer a free sample for mixing so you know what youre committing to and I don't believe many offer that.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Natural in mixing, melodic in beats.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Treated room with Yamaha HS8 monitors paired with Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro headphones. I don't believe you need all that fancy equipment to get the sound youre looking for nowdays. Microphones I have SM7B and WA 47jr.

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

  26. A: Has to be Noah 40 Shebib. The way that man makes artists sound different in every track is mindblowing. Artist wise I'm into Russ, Tory Lanez and Noah Cyrus.

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

  28. A: Mostly I've been making beats for other people, but nowdays market is so saturated with the same uninteresting sound so I took interest in mixing so I guess that is my main thing now.
