Jeremiah Rosenthal (Benjamin Blank) is an award winning Producer, Mixing / Mastering Engineer, with over 20 years of experience. His credits include Prince Royce, Fergie, and Sean Paul among others. His mastery of production, sound design and electronic synthesis sets him apart from the pack.
We offer mixing, mastering, audio post, and production services. EDM, Pop, Hip Hop, and other electronic based genres are our specialties, but we're more than experienced in a wide array of other musical styles, and both drama and documentary film. We can offer a full production, directing every step of the process, or we're equally happy to sign on for a quick edit or mix job. All projects are individually evaluated, and given a customized schedule and budget proposal.
Production, mixing and mastering take place at our studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. We pride ourselves on our Hybrid signal chain combining the digital clarity and power of the Antelope Orion's 32 channels of A/D D/A Conversion with the warmth and fatness of the our Burl B32 Analog Summing Mixer. We have a stellar microphone locker with a selection of microphones from Neumann, AKG, Rode, Shure, and more.
Our mixing rig is based around a Pro Tools Native system, running Pro Tools 11/12 and 10. We can also work in Ableton, or Logic Pro X if that better suits your workflow. We're stocked with hundreds of plugins including the Waves Mercury Bundle, Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate, and tools from FabFilter, Slate, Celemony, Soundtoys, and others, along with a compliment of analog hardware from Antelope, API, Neve, Bettermaker, Burl, UA, and more.

Great working with you!
Jeremiah is a man of many hats. Not only is he a talented mixer and mastering engineer, but he's also a formidable producer and writer. I've had the pleasure of having him mix and master my records and productions, and of getting to collaborate with him as a co-creator. No matter the role, he always took things to the next level.
I've worked with Jeremiah on two different projects, and I love his flexibility between genres. He's generous, meticulous, quick, and professional. Dare I say his abilities know no boundaries. He constantly evolves and adapts to each project. I'll always come back to Blank Canvas Music!
Jeremiah recorded our web-series' theme song, and I was so impressed with his passion for all things sound. He's inventive, passionate, and professional. His enthusiasm for collaborating while recording, plus his creativity in mixing, led to very enjoyable process for our team. You want this guy working with you!
Jeremiah is a not only a great producer but has a musical background and fresh ears! He truly understands sound in all its dimensions, placement of the mixes, sonic textures and vibe of the songs. It's rare to find someone who is as on top of it with equipment and ability. He's very easy to work with for recording, and also great at remixing.
Jeremiah is the consummate collaborator and producer. He is creative, passionate, organized, and brings his work in on time! His professionalism is only surpassed by his musicality, ingenuity and ears!! I look forward to the next project I can work with him on!
I love working with Jeremiah. He's a perfectionist which shines through in his work ethic and tracks. He's also the most inventive producer I know- his sounds are entirely original. Studio time with him is always fun and he's mastered the balance between honoring ideas and giving his own input. I can't recommend him enough.
Jeremiah worked quickly, professionally, and offered us at Bonfire Falls multiple opportunities to tweak and perfect the sound as he went. Our freshman EP Lifetime is all the better for his excellent ear and efforts.
Interview with Blank Canvas Music
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog and Digital. Hybrid setups are the best, By combining the two, I get to have my cake and eat it too. I don't feel the need to be held back by either medium. By integrating the digital world into my rig, I am able to reap the benefits of hundreds of processing plugins, infinite recall, intricate automation, and insane track counts. I get the digital clarity and sound but with the added warmth and fatness my analog gear brings to the table as well. I love the stereo width and beefiness we get from the Burl b32 analog summing mixer in combination with my outboard gear and synths.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise all our clients that I am just as invested in the music and sound as you are. I stop at nothing short of excellence and cut no corners. I promise to take your project and elevate it to the highest form!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the message and vibe of the project? What are you most happy with? What are you most unhappy with? How much time do I have to get you there?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of music with a degree in Audio Engineering. I've worked in several major recording studios, production / jingles houses, and have been writing, recording, mixing, mastering music for over 17 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: In mixing, I work fast and aggressive, while maintaining a meticulous approach. I don't shy away from tedious intricate automation. If its what will make the music sing, I do it! In mastering I am as transparent as requested, or as aggressive as a client would want me to be. My goal is to carve and massage my way to enhancing the music without being noticed, unless the you want it to be. In production our style is gargantuan. We pride ourselves on producing larger than life music ready for the radio and billboard charts.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Francis Starlight from Francis and the Lights. He's a creative genius with an incredible voice and an amazing knack for writing... Would be a dream come true.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: We pride ourselves on our signal chain and utilize a Hybrid setup combining the digital clarity and power of the Antelope Orion's 32 channels of A/D D/A Conversion with the warmth and fatness of my analog gear like the Burl B32 Vancouver Analog Summing Mixer. I have a stellar microphone locker with a selection of microphones from Neumann, AKG, Rode, Shure, and more. Our mixing rig is based around a Pro Tools Native system, running Pro Tools 11/12 and 10. We're stocked with hundreds of plugins including the Waves Mercury Bundle, Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate, and tools from FabFilter, Slate, Celemony, and others, along with a complement of analog hardware from Antelope, API, Neve, Bettermaker, Burl, UA, and more.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I produced, mixed, and mastered the Sony's official remix of Prince Royce's "Darte Un Beso". He is an international mega pop star and an incredible talent. It truly was a dream come true and opened the door for me to remix for more of their star studded talent.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Jake Birch, is a long time friend, colleague, and collaborator of mine. He is an extremely talented Producer, Mixer, and Mastering Engineer as well. When the workload gets a little much, I can always count on him to lend a supreme quality hand. Or if I feel the project needs another set of ears for mixing or mastering, i'll recommend he is the engineer to use. We know each other well, and I can always trust that he will fully understand and interpret the notes given to him accurately and how I and the artists would have wished.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the complexity of our hearing and how it can evoke such a strong enough emotion to bring us to tears or make us elated with joy. I love how, through a true understanding of psycho-acoustics we can transport a listener to a different time and space. I love the science behind the sound and I love how in the right hands it can enhance the art of sound to such wondrous levels.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Thats tough.. I believe there is a lot of unknowns for the common artists, manager, fan, etc. about production, mixing & mastering. There is a lot of room for crossover between the 3 disciplines, and I treat them all independently, and have very distinct mindsets for approaching each. I believe mixing and mastering seem to most like magical moves happening behind the curtain, and in some ways they are right. It does take a well seasoned veteran to possess the knowledge, tools, and decisiveness to make a mix great. I also know that some view mixing & mastering as something that is helpful but not necessary. If you want your songs to truly shine, it is imperative to have them properly mixed and mastered by an industry professional. If not, they almost definitely will NOT sound even remotely as potent as other music on the radio or streaming.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you choose a professional that you vibe with and can communicate clearly with. This although most oftenly overlooked, can reap the biggest rewards, when trying to get your music or project to its final vision. If you can't clearly communicate with the producer or engineer what you are looking for than chances are, no matter how good they are, it won't come out how would like.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take the Roland Juno 106, computer, Antelope Orion, Neve 1073, and a great pair of headphones probably the seinheisser HD600's. Should be able to accomplish pretty much anything with those! But then again what are you doing mixing on a desert island?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The most important piece of advice when starting a new project is to have the proper mindset and a focused goal or idea. When you know where you want to go, you will get there 10 times faster, and the project will be stronger as a result.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic, Pop, Rock, EDM, Indie, Folk, Trap, Hip Hop, Country, Bass, such a wide array.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Although I am well versed and experienced in crafting all genres of music I excel at Pop, Electronic, and EDM production and mixing. I can Master everything equally!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Open ears, open minds, and years of experience learning how to get it just right.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically start by finding a few references as to what we are trying to accomplish, whether it be for a new production, mix, or mastering project. I then take down a list of items with the client as to what our proposed goal is and where we will be taking the project. After I address all these items, we move on to the final mix notes phase. This is where I note any changes or fixes that need to be made before final printing. If need be we do up to two revisions for free. Once the project is signed off on by the client we print and upload all your files to your personalized dropbox folder and we send out any DDP, or other formats out for physical printing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Too many to list. I'm inspired by new artists popping up everyday from all over the globe.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Music and audio post production, mixing, and mastering.
