4 ReviewsEndorse Isaac Diskin
Isaac has engineered and produced countless songs of mine. He is a true talent and I can't say enough good things about him- professional, an ear for good music, and a great guy to be around. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for an amazing tracking/mixing engineer and/or producer. He is a guy of many talents and you won't regret working with him!!!!
Isaac was the tracking engineer for my debut album, Restless. I am beyond happy with how everything turned out. I've worked with multiple talented engineers in the same studio where Restless was recorded and no one was able to capture my sound or my bandmates' sounds with anywhere near the same level of clarity as Isaac. During each of the sessions, Isaac showed up early and was also willing to stay late. He's highly professional, easy to work with, and knows his stuff. 6/5 stars!
I have worked with Isaac on several occasions, and each time has been great! He really knows his way around a recording studio. He has recorded and mixed seberal of my tracks and I have worked with him both as composer and as performer. He’s timely, friendly, and professional. My tracks sound incredible, thanks to Isaac!
Isaac has engineered/mixed/mastered two EP’s for my band Lemon Wizard. He was professional and super easy to work with during every step of the process, and we were beyond happy with the final product! Would definitely recommend, Isaac knows his stuff!
Interview with Isaac Diskin
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is being able to take your creative vision, however unfocused, and make it a reality. Maybe you want your guitars to sound like The Strokes, your vocals to feel a little more "orange" or your drums to be from outer-space. Whatever your vision for your project is, I can translate it into the necessary technical language to bring it to life.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Rick Rubin's approach inspires me to always keep the artist and the song in the forefront. He reminds me to ask the question: "is this making the song better?". Andre 3000 is another whose originality and creativity inspires me to approach the unexpected with an open mind, as you never know what you might find.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Recently I had the pleasure of mixing the debut album, called Allegory, for one of the best songwriters out there, Alyce. Getting to be involved with music I love is always so special and there's nothing I love more than helping songwriters like her to bring their dreams to life.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I am finishing up two jazz records I recorded earlier in the year, in the arranging and production stage of an EP for two different local indie-rock groups as well as mixing a variety of tracks for some great Hip Hop and RnB artists.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That engineering isn't an art!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What does your final product look like? What is left to complete? What do you want from me? What is your timeline for this project?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication is key! A good mixing/production relationship is a two way street.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am a recent graduate of the Frost School of Music Music Engineering program, and I now work at the world-renown recording studio The Hit Factory/Criteria Recording Studios.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to break the rules...once you know them.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: On your average day you can find me recording and mixing for indie-rock groups and jazz artists. However my love for music has never been bound by genre and I regularly take up projects mixing hip-hop vocals, recording avant-garde classical pieces or co-producing a lo-fi house EP.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring the ear of an engineer and a musician. Not only do I have a technical and analytical approach to polishing your music, I have been playing music my whole life and writing my own songs since I was ten. I want to make sure your creative vision stays in the forefront, and I am not afraid to think outside of the box in order to make that happen.
