"Sound Engineer"

allen_head on SoundBetter

Hey there, I'm in this to do beautiful work that will stand the test of time. Ever since I learned that I learned that Mix/Mastering was a job I knew it was right for me. I like taking great songs and making them sound great, so that wide audiences can find new artists exciting.

I'm fairly new to the professional mix/master scene. Currently I don't have much experience, but I have the education and knowledge to deliver a quality of work that some pros can't match. I do 40+/hrs of mixing for free on reddit. Here are some of my qualifications:

-Trained with Micheal White, a mixing engineer with 30 years of experience, a master who's worked with Whitney Houston, Mick Jaeger, and hundreds of other professional artists.

-Read extensively on mixing, some of the books I've studied: "The Art of Mixing" by David Gibson, "The Mixing Engineer's Handbook" by Bobby Owsinki, and many others.

-Keep up with the latest software; I mix on Pro Tools & Ableton, I have the Waves Mercury Bundle, Izotope 7, Steven Slate Rack, Fabfilter Pack, etc. I have the right tools for the job.

-I've been producing and mixing for several years. I am just beginning to get into the professional scene.

I'm dedicated to doing the best work I can. This is my art and I take that seriously. Because I don't have the extensive resume that some of my mentor's have, I'm also doing all this work for a very competitive price. If you're a start-up artist looking for pro-quality work, I can do some great things with your track. Let me know if you have any questions.

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

Interview with allen_head

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

  2. A: Perspective. I know many artists and I've heard eerily similar descriptions from them about their own work. Once they work on a track long enough, put their heart and soul into it, they lose perspective on what it sounds like to an outside listener. I have the fresh ears needed to translate the artists vision to a listener's expectations.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I work in box on a custom PC. Some studios flout fancy gear as if gear magically makes music sound better. I know that I have all the tools digitally that every older studio has had access to and I know how to use those tools. It's not about gear, it's about knowledge.

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

  6. A: My greatest inspirations are my mixing teachers; Micheal White, Dave Pensado, and Graham Cochrane. They're all amazing.

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

  8. A: Full track mixing. I receive stems via email and I put them together to make an awesome song.
