Remote Mixing & Mastering

Jacob Momjian on SoundBetter

Armenian Record engineer, Mix engineer & Music Producer based in the UK.

As a musician myself, I play four instruments. The drums, guitar, bass and I'm a singer. I believe to really a good sound engineer and producer you must be a musician yourself, to be able to mix a song musically rather than scientifically.

Over the years I've had the privilege to work with many talended producers such as the grammy winning engineer JOE CHICCARELLI. I specialise in heavy rock/metal production, however, my background allows me to be very versatile by being able to work with may different genres and musicians.

  4. A: Listening to new genres and meeting different musicians.

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

  6. A: Make sure you speak to the producer/engineer first to come to terms with an agreement that satisfy you both equally.

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

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

  10. A: I have been recording and mixing local bands all throughout uni, and now that I have finally graduated, I dedicate all my time to producing and writing new records. It's been 4 years now and I hope for many more successful years.

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

  12. A: Bring me the horizon. They're production methods are incredible, and mixes always sound on point. I would love to work with them to challenge my self to their standards.

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

  14. A: Less is more. Rather than adding several new elements in a song, it's important to find the one element that attracts the listener and bring THAT back with a different twist, rather than trying to force the listener to get attracted to a new element.

  15. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  16. A: I recently released my own song on iTunes. I'm proud because I wrote, produced, performed, recorded and mixed the whole song on my own.

  17. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  18. A: Both. Analog has it's warm tone which everybody loves, but at the end of the day, digital is just practicality. I always however make sure I record with analog gear when I have access to them.

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

  20. A: Who inspires you and why?

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: If the song doesn't take me to a different place, it's not produced right.

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

  24. A: Singer Songwriter, Rock, Metal & Pop.

  25. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  26. A: Mixing drums and Vocals. I myself play 4 instruments, drums, guitar, piano and I sing. I always make sure that the Kick, Snare and Vocals sit perfectly together in a mix. Those three to me make or break a record.

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

  28. A: I always listen to songs with an audience perspective. I try to find which part of the song attracts to me the most and which part pushes me away. This way I can produce the song in a way where I can make sure the song never looses my connection.

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

  30. A: First of all I like to talk to the client to make sure I understand what they wants for an outcome. I usually ask for a reference track as well to get an idea and feel of the energy in the song before I start to produce and mix the clients tracks.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: I have a C24 controller with the AVID HD I/O system. I use both Protools and Logic Pro X and monitor my tracks using the PMC 228 & the Genelic 1032B monitors. I have a selection of outboard gear such as the Neve 1073 pre-amps, Manley EQ, Distressors, SSL compressor and many more. I also have access to the best plugins such as waves and UAD, as well as virtual instruments such as native instruments.

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

  34. A: Chris Lord-Alge, Joe Chiccarelli, Tony Maserati & Andrew Scheps

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

  36. A: I mostly produce and mix my clients, however, I have a lot of experience with tracking since I was originally a recording engineer.
