I mix and master

Steve Lovell on SoundBetter

I am a musician/ producer and have over 20 years experience working with many internationally recognised musicians. I will mix your tracks so they can compete sonically with other records. We can set up a call to find out what you are committed to with your music and how you would like it to sound.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

Interview with Steve Lovell

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Julian Copes ‘Fried’ as I produced it in 1984 but it is still available and doesn’t sound like an 80’s record. Blurs ‘Villa Rosie’ as it sounds fully realised and Still sounds good.

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

  4. A: I have just completed a solo album for my wife. I am mixing an album for a male singer songwriter and producing and mixing an album for a female singer songwriter.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Analog for the sound, digital for convenience.

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

  8. A: I won’t give up!

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

  10. A: I love leaving musicians thrilled with the results. I love hearing the track fully realised and sparkling.

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

  12. A: What music do they listen to and why did they choose me.

  13. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  14. A: An IPad Pro with Cubasis and mastering apps. Then I could sit on a rock overlooking the sea creating music.

  15. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  16. A: I was a record producer for over 20 years retired and now work from home. I am in the process of setting up a record label CowChow records. I currently have 4 musicians making music for the label.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: Kate Bush. She’s a genius and composes and records great tracks but makes lousy albums!

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

  20. A: Don’t be too eager to stamp your authority on the track. Be sensitive to what’s been recorded. Sounds in isolation may not need eq’ing in the track.

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

  22. A: All genres but I have mainly worked with singer songwriters and guitar bands

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Creating a track that satisfies the artists and sounds fully realised and competes with other records in apparent volume and size.

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

  26. A: I am a musician so bring musicality whoever possible to the mix

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

  28. A: I do a quick un eq’ed balance of the track with no fx, compression etc to get a feel for what’s been recorded. I then start mixing bring in eq where necessary and reverbs etc. I then spend sometimes hours sometimes days mixing.

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

  30. A: Brian Wilson. Joe Boyd, Andy Wallace,

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

  32. A: Mixing and mastering
