Remote Mixing & Mastering

Jack Thompson on SoundBetter

I am an up and coming mixing/mastering engineer looking to expand my horizons.

I am a mixing/audio engineer from the Brighton area in the UK. I have years of experience in multiple DAWs including Logic, Ableton and Pro Tools.

I specialise in modern metal and also have a lot of experience with recording rock bands in the local area. I have a massive list of audio software and plugins available for me to use on your unmixed tracks. I will get you the modern sound you hear in many modern metal records.

I will work closely with you and take onboard any feedback you provide until you get the perfect sound for release!

Interview with Jack Thompson

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: I love the workflow of analog and try to emulate it when working in the box. For more fine tuning, I prefer digital because of its transparency and accuracy.

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

  4. A: Communicate how you feel about a rough mix, even if you feel like it's a harsh thing to say. If you don't tell me what you dislike then you won't be happy when it comes to release.

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

  6. A: My laptop, headphones, guitar and interface. It's all I really need!

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

  8. A: I would love to work with Periphery, Muse, or Northlane.

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

  10. A: Check the phase!!!

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

  12. A: Rock and Metal are my favourite genres to work on.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: My strongest skill is doing whatever it takes to get a mediocre recording to sound good. I have worked on some less-than-stellar recordings before from when I was a beginner so I know how to enhance them and get them to a good standard.

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

  16. A: I usually put all of my faders down, bring the most important part of the mix up and then set my levels based on that. After that I will do basic EQ and compression and then do the more complex processing and sends.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I work entirely in the box, but I occasionally get to try some analog gear.

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

  20. A: Adam 'Nolly' Getgood is a big influence on my drum processing techniques and, for me, set the gold standard for real drum sounds in the modern rock and metal space.

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

  22. A: I mainly mix and master clients' songs to ensure they are sounding as good as they can, ready for release
