Noah Schmidt on SoundBetter

My name is Noah Schmidt, an up and coming music producer, as well as a cover track producer and remote masterer. I live in Kansas City, Missouri, and enjoy its deep musical heritage. I believe your music should sound the best it can possibly sound because it is a direct representation of you.

I produce music on a daily basis, with a broad range of genres. I believe in your music sounding great and will work to accomplish that goal. I also specialize in mixing and mastering. I have run sound for seven years and know what sounds good in your music.

Interview with Noah Schmidt

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Currently, I am working on a Christmas album that will be released on Christmas Day. (Watch my SoundCloud closely... lol)

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: Hudson Watts, and/or Kel Productions. (He and I work closely together.)

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Depends on the style I'm working with. If I'm working with EDM, I would definitely lean towards a digital mix, but if I'm working with Jazz, I would want more analog sounds.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: Your music will be the best sounding music out there.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: Everything about it.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: "How can you make this sound good?" By applying my sound skills to your music and testing it with multiple speaker systems.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: So far, I am not aware of any misconceptions.

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

  16. A: When do you need this finished?

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

  18. A: Look for someone who will take the time to make your music sound like you want it to. If that person is asking for a lot of money for one song, make sure they produce quality music with good sound.

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

  20. A: A MacBook Pro, a 7:1 surround sound system, an Alto Saxophone, a condenser mic, and a digital mixer with FireWire options.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: My personal style is a mix of classical orchestra with a mix of synths and heavy kits. This is not usually reflected in a song you want to be produced or mastered.

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

  24. A: I can't narrow it down to one artist because I like to get a feel for every sound out there.

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

  26. A: You have to recognize the audience for your track. Hip Hop artists like heavy kick and a tight snare, with analog synths. Rock artists, in turn, like to have heavy bass and electric guitar, with no electronic synths anywhere. Each genre has its own unique sound.

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

  28. A: I can work on pretty much every genre of music you give me, maybe excluding opera.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: Basically, I do everything.

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

  32. A: My live sound experience has taught me what sounds good with certain environments and how to combine different elements of music and give them a quality sound.

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

  34. A: Usually, when someone sends me a project, I get right to work on it. I'll listen to the song multiple times to get a feel for the sound, and then I tweak and send it back after playing it through multiple stereo systems.

  35. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  36. A: I currently work from home, but I have two 5" studio monitors, two 8" bookshelf speakers with 3" subs, and a 10" 1500 watt sub. I run off of Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, and StudioOne.

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

  38. A: I am constantly listening to other musicians in order to improve the sound and quality of my productions. Right now I am in an Epic Soundtracks phase and like to listen to John Williams, Steve Jablonsky, and Hans Zimmer, as well as pretty much every composer under the sun. ;)

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

  40. A: Some people ask me to produce cover songs for them, but I also master and remix for most of the people that come to me.
