    Rob mastered my 5 track EP. Not only did he deliver fantastic sounding tracks, within the set timeframe, but his communication and constructive feedback were invaluable. I didn't hire him to mix, but he was more than happy to guide me in that department so that we ended up with the best possible sound. Top man - will definitely work with again.

    Great experience and awesome mixing/mastering. Rob mixed and mastered our first EP and he made our 5 songs shine. He has brilliant ears and a feeling for the vibes of a song - and in case you want anything changed, he'll do it fast and to the point. Besides that, he's not only responding quickly (and nicely) to messages, but also takes the time to explain why and how he's doing this or that, making it easy to follow the whole mixing/mastering process. Cheers!

    My 2nd job with Rob was as rewarding as the first. I don't have much mixing terminology down as of yet, but Rob was still able to deal with that, understanding my wishes and deliver a beautiful mix, and he goes beyond the call of duty explaining in detail what he's doing. Can't wait to get back a 3rd time! Thanks, Rob!

    Rob did an absolutely outstanding job on my single mix/remix project. He is incredibly knowledgable about every aspect of the mixing and mastering process and made that clear throughout our correspondence. Not only is he knowledgable, very friendly and down-to-earth, but he has a very creative ear for what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a mix and mastering engineer. 10/10 would work with Rob again.

    Rob did a fantastic job bringing out the vocals and the piano and balancing and fine tuning the mix to sound as I had envisioned. He is quick, efficient and understands the requirement of the song and is an experienced mixing and mastering engineer with whom I hope to work again for my next song and many more...The song had added complexity of being a bollywood composition but language was not a barrier for rob and he did full justice to the song and I wish him good luck for his future projects.

He is a professional on every level, highly organized and offered brilliant insights into improvements for my music, yet did not "bulldoze" over my vision.

    Rob has a great ear, great Producer instincts, and an all around musicianship that makes the difference between a good mix/master and a great mix/master.

    Second time working with Rob and again, he's an amazing audio wizard. He gave me the first mix and I gave him detailed feedback and he was able to address every issue and make the track sound like I wanted in my head. He went above and beyond explaining certain technical aspects of the sound. Lastly, the track sounds powerful, kick is amazing, bass, wonderful balance and yet the WAV form isn't squished -- he definitely gives tracks room to breathe yet they sound loud and present.

He is willing to try things that sound strange on paper (can you put a phaser over the master fader) and make them sound musical and professional. He made my messy session sound so much better than I knew how, and left us with a single that feels real, and worth sharing. Thank you Rob.

    Absolutely blown away, Rob is the real deal! I'm in the process of having him Mix & Master my album. You can tell that him and his crew do not half ass anything. If you want to take your music to the next level than I highly recommend. My music is a cross breed between electronic and singer song writer vibes and I was afraid that the music wasn't gonna have that punch and clarity that I was looking for in the kick and bas. From vocals, to compression, EQ it sounds much better. Keep it up Rob!

    Rob was absolutely amazing, I will be returning to him for mixing and mastering in the future!

    He was timely and very responsive to my messages. My mix sounded so good! I couldn't be more pleased! I'd also like to add that he was very kind and patient with me. I had quite a few questions about how to break down the tracks after mixing/mastering for my live set up and he was really helpful in explaining some technical terms and possibilities for me.

    Thanks Rob!

    Rob is smart, talented, and very easy to work with. The process was smooth and easy and he really took the time on my song. The final product is detailed and layered and was receptive to feedback and came back with something better than I described. Excited to work with him again soon.

    Rob was very much the anchor of the studio during the making of my album, and just a huge part of what made it the best creative experience of my life. I heartily echo what others have said with regard to his mastery of the boards, ears, and professionalism. In my case, he also became a friend.

The creative process can be strange when you don't really know who you're working with, but with Rob it couldn't have been easier, he's a great hang. We've had some excellent vocal sessions together and his ears and mixing/mastering skills are second to none!

Interview with Rob Murray

  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: As far as close industry friends, two-time Grammy award winning classical engineer Brian Losch. That's who I call when I need a friend to critique or offer advice, and he's the one who told me about SoundBetter. I'm sure there's more if I dug through the lists, and I definitely know a fair amount either personally or by reputation. There's some phenomenal producers on here too, but a lot of them tend to only be client side, and not doing the provider side... yet!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Digital. Recall-ability and control. I like the romance and art of having analog gear and controls in front of me, but end of the day I get better results in the digital domain. That said, I more often than not still use some analog on my 2-buss. Sometimes the downsides of the D/A/D loop outweigh the benefits though. If I were tracking everyday like my younger years then analog would of course be more important as there's no substitute for a good analog frontend during recording. Everything starts in tracking, whether it sounds amazing and it's the producer/mixer's job not to mess it up, or whether there's some shortcoming's that need to be helped.

  5. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  6. A: On the mastering side people tend to think a bad mix can be fixed in mastering... It can't. On the mixing side, there tend to be people who think that mixing will change the song. In an ideal world, mixing is enhancing/bringing out the heart of the song, but not heavily changing production or basic presentation.

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

  8. A: Mostly what aesthetic they're going for, who their influences are, what's their audience. The same song could be released with a Pop, Country, Indie, or "Coffeehouse", vibe. I can get clues from the production but ultimately it matters most what the song means to you, and who you're looking to reach with it.

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

  10. A: Make sure your songs/production are good. No amount of mixing can make a bad song a good one. To quote a friend "I can't polish a turd, but I can at least remove the smell".

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

  12. A: Pro Tools, API 2500, my speakers, converters and my hammock.

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

  14. A: I have a masters in sound recording where I cut my teeth largely doing classical and jazz, and many internships at an analog studio, classical festivals, and a mic company to name a few. I assisted at world class studios like Galaxy in Belgium and Downtown in NYC and worked restoration and remastering for the metropolitan opera and US Air Force before freelancing as a recording and mastering engineer in NYC and moving to Austin, TX where I opened my own space. All told, 10-15 years depending on whether you count starting to record/intern or working full time.

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

  16. A: Ryan Adams, Wilco, or Spoon. Great songs, great production, great players every song is great.

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

  18. A: Here's 3: 1 - "over"-brightening followed by a high frequency limiter can really help add air to a track without making it harsh. 2 - Avoid using phase based stereo processors, while there's a time and place for everything, you'll get a wider/cleaner stereo image through discrete panning. 3 - Fight the urge to make everything brighter and punchier, give everything it's own space (both spectrally and stereoscopic) and make the supporting elements do just that.

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

  20. A: As cheesy as it sounds I think I bring the song to the song. I try to find the core of the music and make sure it's presented in the best light. Often it's the vocal, sometimes it's the beat, but I think my strongest asset is my ability to do what the song needs. Whether it's a bright polished pop mix, a lo-fi indie mix, or a clean acoustic song. Clients most often tend to compliment my vocal sound, and I do tend to build a mix around a vocal.

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

  22. A: Mixing: After I receive files I import everything into Pro Tools, and get a pretty decent rough mix happening. Then I confirm with the client that we're either good to go, or there's something missing or that needs to be fixed. I then put the mix on my schedule and either send it the day I mix it, or sometimes give it a night to finish with fresh ears. I then shoot this first pass to clients, and then if they have notes I recall and address as needed. Turn around depends on my calendar, and the scope of project but is usually around 2 weeks start to finish. Mastering: I generally listen to the song outside of the DAW, making sure it sounds like a decent mix, and that there's no technical issues. Once I've confirmed everything is good to go, I schedule it in and hit it usually within a few days.

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

  24. A: The Music!

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: All-Fi. I can do hi-fi but I'm not opposed to heavy compression, distortion or other lo-fi elements when appropriate.

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

  28. A: Honestly a bit of everything. My clients tend to largely come for my pop, electronic and indie credits, but I love mixing more acoustic music, and I have a history getting my start in classical and jazz.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: I'd like to think my ears, and attention to detail.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: I have a dedicated mix/master suite in Austin, TX with select hardware from companies like API, Antelope and GKL and extensive software and plugins, all centered around Dunlavy SC-IV monitors with Perreaux amplification.

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

  34. A: I'm primarily a mixing and mastering engineer. I have clients spanning classical to hip hop, but most of my credits are pop, rock, or elctronic.
