Joseph Schmidt (Jophes) on SoundBetter

I can turn your pop, indie and electronic ideas into finished, radio ready songs!

I am a laid back individual with a rabid musical curiosity and keen sense of sonic aesthetics- both of which I am eager to put to use in helping you realize you musical vision. If I had to assess my self, I would say my standout production abilities are melody and sound design. Helping others transform their musical ore from its natural state to sonic gold is what I’m all about.

Services I offer:
-Production. I'll take your song idea from an idea to a full scale production. I can play most instruments.
-Mixing. I am an engineer who will mix through the lens of a musician. I also use analog summing which means your mixes will have width, depth and life!
-Synthesizer. I can recreate most sounds by ear or add that special touch your track needs to make it the last10% of the way there instrumentally.

Whats next?
-We call or chat to get an overview of what the project entails
-You send me the required files to start the project
- I do my thing by completing your thing and then send you forth a happy customer!

If you're ready to take your music to the next level, lets get in touch and get rolling

  1. Review by Braydon Germain

    Joseph's work on a track of mine was incredible. I love 80's music, and he was able to enhance my production and take it to the next level. I'm so grateful to have worked with Joseph and will surely be working with him again in the future!

  2. Review by Susan Lucas

    Joseph is incredibly talented and works quickly to create amazing tracks. Lovely to work with and awesome to be in the studio with as well! Highly recommend his services.

  3. Review by Patrick Maresco

    Joseph is by far the best synth-man I know. He has an insanely good ear for filling an entire mix perfectly with the right sound, EQ'ing and mastering to perfection, and riddling it with catchy synth lines, and is easily one of the best, most trusted producers and musicians I've had the honor of working with. If you get the chance to work with him you will get a pro experience and a potential hit.

  4. Review by Lynz Munich

    Joseph is a synth mastermind! He has awesome keyboard and production skills. I can't recommend him enough. I discovered his music online and was hooked instantly. Try him out for your songs!
