Hi I'm Jordan, and I am a professional freelance mix engineer, producer and musician. I'm able to get your tracks radio ready so you can progress in your career. I can mix, master and add rock guitars, electric and bass to your tracks.

I like a wide variety of music, but I'm best at mixing genres like Rock, Pop Rock, Indie, Alternative and Hard Rock. Please send me 2-3 songs of your favourite music so I can hear your musical taste as this reduces the need for major mix revisions. I would also be open to a skype call to make it more personal.
I also offer miked amp recordings with a DI track, distorted or clean guitars and thumping beats for your electronica. I am quite flexible just ask me and I'll see how I can help. I will also master your song, but I'll provide the mix only file for your benefit.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Terms of Service

One song turn around will be a maximum of 7 days for quality control. Expect around two weeks for an E.P/album. For mix revisions, I'm pretty generous. EPs and albums I can give you a good deal.

Reviews of Jordan Rea

  • Default-avatar5 months agoby

    Jordan did a mix of an instrumental piece of mine after earlier mixing work had petered out. He's an excellent communicator and provided a great interpretation of the music with a new sense of focus for which sounds to make most prominent - a more unified approach with fewer distractions from competing parts. Would definitely recommend.

Interview with Jordan Rea

Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
My brother, search Richy Rea he is an electronic music producer, and he can record acoustic guitar, drums and he even can play the harmonica while playing the guitar.
What's your strongest skill?
Automating the tracks to punctuate the important parts and enhancing MIDI sounds that aren't so great sounding. If I know the MIDI tracks sound bad, I'd prefer to get them to send me MIDI data so I can totally reinvent the sound. I am a drummer so beat making for pop and electronic tracks is fun.
What's your typical work process?
I listen to the song and assess its strengths and weaknesses. Then I import and edit if needed, lining tracks and removing noise. Then I do a rough balance and pan and have a break. Then I go into the plugins, break then automation and FX. The break time may be the next day or an hour, just depends.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Do you want an upfront in your face close sound, or do you like it to have reverb and more spaced out and epic? I think all mixes can be divided into those two camps.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would like to mix Amaranthe, The Naked and Famous, Smashing Pumpkins if I was around in their peak, Linkin Park and any symphonic metal. Those bands have the ability to take me away to another place and forget about the world.
What do you bring to a song?
excitement, add in something the artists won't expect that highlights the part that needs it.
Tell us about your studio setup.
It's very basic project studio. I mix ITB, with analogue emulation plugins. I use Logic 9 with Alto monitors.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
Being able to turn tracks that aren't well recorded into something gold. The song needs to be recorded well, and arranged well before any more magic can happen.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Be clear about what you want for your project. Keep lines of communication open.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I work on rock/hardrock, electronic and singer-songwriter/acoustic.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
The 3 engineers that have shaped who I am today as a mixer are, Bob Katz, Mike Stavrou and Graham Cochrane.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I mix & master rock/pop and I add electronic beats and bass to tracks for producers.
