Found Aaron on Soundbetter when I needed a song co-produced/refreshed. Not only did he deliver, he nailed it. I couldn't be any happier with the result.
Aaron listened to the briefing and feedback and added details to my own song that I couldn't even dream of. The quality of his work is astounding and I will be working with him again sooner than later!
Made my music super cool! i recommend this guy :)
This guy made a live performance sound like a million. Such a great producer + mix and master :) I recommend Aaron to all who wants the job done professionally.
Great working with Aaron he's a very talented producer & guitarist! he goes the extra mile highly recommended! excited to work with him on new projects in the near future. :p
Aaron is a fantastic EDM, Future and Pop Songwriter and Producer. His talent never seizes to amaze me.
Aaron is one the greatest guys I've ever worked with. He's a kind person, who really understands the person behind the artist he's working with. Aaron is at a young age very experienced, and he knows the difference between good and amazing. This guy will work until its perfect. no shit
This guy has his own style! His productions are something you can’t get anywhere else and then of course he do melodies/Topline as well 😱 Just go listen to his work on Small Talk and you’ll hear what I mean!
You’re definitely missing out if you’re not using Aaron for your next song. High recommendations from me 💪
Aaron is probably one of the most prominent producers from our age. With moderne and originale sounds, an impeccable understanding of songwriting, you’re in for a threat. The professionalism he carries throughout every job is almost inspiring in itself. I can highly recommend!
Aaron is an absolute pleasure to work with. We've been working together for over 4 years now and he has always been able to add something special to every project we've worked one. He is a master in creating hooks, whether this is a topline, a lead melody or a guitar. Besides that, he is one of the best vocal producers in the game.
If you want to create modern pop songs with attention to detail, I highly recommend Aaron as your songwriter/producer.
Aaron and I got to meet each other last year during a session. I instantly knew he was going to be a person I wanted to work with for the rest of my life. Kind, crazy talented and amazingly humble all the way! Working with him for my own project is one of the greatest gifts ever. Stay tuned, you’ll hear his name much more often in the future. I’m sure of that. X
Aaron is a super talented guy. I've worked with him multiple times and enjoyed every last bit of it. He gets your vision, is a brilliant all-round musician, and a very kind guy. I highly recommend him without a doubt.
Interview with Aaron Bryn
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'd highly recommend Adinde Ringel. Besides being a great friend and doing the artist project "Small Talk" together, we work on many other projects together too. He's a down to earth guy and specializes at sound design & electronic music. It's possible to hire us together too if you want best of both worlds. Furthermore I've worked with Luke Matthew. He was one of the co-writers on one of our Small Talk singles. He's super passionate and a pleasure to work with!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Connecting with creative and passionate people. I get the most joy out of making people their vision/ideas a reality. And specifically with vocal editing/production, it's a job where you learn your own secrets. Even when explaining them to others, they will never apply it the same way you do yourself. Vocals are never the same, so a lot of it depends on feeling rather than theory.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Making sure to be on the same page in what the goals are with who I'm working with. Know their style, taste and direction. The work and experience will do the rest.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Recently I got the chance to produce a Jason Derulo pitch. What made it unique is that we worked with his actual vocals, which made it extra special.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Writing & producing for a young new artist that's signed to a major label where he'll debut. Also creating pitch tracks/songs while working as (ghost) producer/songwriter on the side.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Understanding the idea, adding my two cents to that idea and bringing ideas to life.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I've got two setups. A small work space at home, where I only produce tracks, record electric guitar and/or record cue vocals. The other setup is an acoustic treated studio space where I record any material that needs a controlled room (think of vocals and acoustic guitar). My favorite gear: DAW - Logic Pro X /// Vocal Mic - SM7B /// Interface - Universal Audio Apollo (With the UAD unison Neve Pre-Amp, or Manley VOXBOX) /// Electric Guitar - Fender Stratocaster (USA) /// Acoustic Guitar - Taylor (USA) /// Acoustic Guitar Mics - XY Mic Technique with 2x SM58 (with caps off - I prefer that over the SM57s) and/or NT1 Condensor
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for character, digital for control. When I don't have the option to use analog gear, I love using the unison pre-amps and guitar amps/cabs with the Universal Audio Apollo line. The interface adjusts to the analog counter part's behavior while recording. That's what gives it that real analog experience while being very efficient. I can't really tell the difference and it works incredibly quick compared to the usual analog workflow.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll always stay true to your ideas and goals. Together we'll discover what is possible to make that idea and/or goal the best we possibly can make it.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: What's your (lowest) price? A: It depends on the project. I can adjust to both smaller and larger budgets. For every budget there's a maximum of time, effort, priority etc. I can invest for that specific project. So it depends on what kind of job, and how much you want me to invest on it.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That vocal production is just another part of a mixing engineer's job. Vocals are a delicate thing. Truly understanding the sensitivity and how to work with it is totally different than any other element in music. It's its own thing and an unique expertise.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you aiming to achieve and in what way do you want me to be involved?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Find someone that respects your vision and can relate to your ideas. Someone you expect to have the right balance between improving and retaining the set goal.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: - Guitar - Macbook - Headphones - Interface - Mic
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: From a very early age I've played many instruments, but mainly guitar. In my early teens I discovered music production and with that found my true passion. I've had several artist projects with two that I signed label deals with (Montis, Small Talk). Since I was 16 I had sessions with other people, and by 18 I started having sessions internationally. I got a degree as Music Producer while exploring songwriting too. I've never stopped learning and growing as an all-round musician and will always be eager for self development.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Storytelling music and/or lyrics. Very clean while atmospheric and emotional.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: As a kid I went to a Coldplay concert with my family. It impressed me so much, it's the highest entry on my bucket list of people to one day work with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to try things you don't know. Always stay adventurous and expand the possibilities. Trust your ears first, analyze after.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Most of my work can be considered as Pop. But I also have a strong connection with the more experimental/indie side.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I visit many writing camps/sessions as a songwriter/producer, but always take up the role as vocal producer as well. At these sessions I get to work with many different voices in different recording settings. Nowadays I recognize any issue recordings might bring and most importantly know how fix them.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I've learned so much from many people I've had the pleasure of worked with, no matter the level. Everyone has something that inspires me or shed new light on the way to work.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Be the help needed to make their ideas turn out the way they envision it. No matter if it's a full production/song or upgrading already done work, I adjust to each project and each budget to make sure I do the maximum possible for their needs.
