Hi! I have been professionally mixing & mastering for rock and pop bands and artists since 2015. I started out in music production in order to be able to record a few songs for my then solo project Ajna, which happened to get decent attention and since then has been growing steadily, with a few originals and several performances.
I have an extensive mixing & mastering portfolio and am very easy to work with, remotely or in person.
My credibility means a lot to me. If I work on your project, then expect the best. If you are a first time customer with me, then feel free to ask for a free sample on my mastering service.

Interview with Vibhu Trehan
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My credibility means a lot to me. If I work on your project, then expect the best. Customer satisfaction guaranteed.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I will give an advice more relevant for mastering. When looking for a mastering engineer, the best thing to do is to send a song to a few different mastering studios to see who can make your music sound the best. Hiring a stranger to master your music can get scary, but getting a sample from a few different mastering engineers before hiring them makes it a lot easier to find someone you can trust. I’m sure you’ll find that my audio quality is amazing, and that my customer service is second to none.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I finished my engineering in Elecronics & Communications from MIT, Manipal, in 2012 which really got me deep into the study of audio and the whole analog/digital process. I was also writing and producing my own songs during that time. Then to further raise my level in Sound Engineering and Music Production, I joined an institute in New Delhi in 2013 called the Beatfactory, for which i also started working later on. This was the time when i worked with a few artists and was simultaneously working on my project- Ajna. Ajna's first record released in January, 2017.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overdo it!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Alternative Rock, Pop Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Soft Rock, Indie, Bollywood Music are the genres that i have worked most on, as i really like them too.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When mixing a song, I like to work in the following steps: 1. Listen to a rough mix of the song to get the vibe the client is going for 2. Go through all the raw files, number and rename them according to my own nomenclature 3. Convert all files to the same sample rate and bit depth if required 4. Import all files into a pre-arranged Logic Pro X project template with groups & buses, fx channels already setup to save time 5. Route all tracks to relevant buses 6. Again listen to a rough mix of the song from the client 7. Do a basic balance of the song with drums, bass, vocal, guitar and synth 8. Automation moves and establishing dynamic contrasts from section to section 9. Design reverbs, delays and other time based effects for the various mix elements 10. Render a first pass and send to client for feedback
