b̶a̶d̶ ̶m̶i̶x̶i̶n̶g̶, good vibes
I know how pricey professionals can be so I try and help smaller artists out by offering a decent production for less.
I can produce, mix and master your song at an attractive price point. My specialty lies in Hip-Hop/Rap, more specifically in Trap, LoFi and Drill music. You can listen to a sample on the top right. Besides music I'm also able to do basic vocal editing and process podcasts.
My experience consists of six years of music production, three years of drumming and about two years of recording, mixing and mastering my own material or from local artists. From that I've learned how to work with home recordings and make the best out of them. While most of my skills are self-taught, I'm currently attending music academy to improve further.
Feel free to contact me and talk about your project beforehand, I'd be happy to help!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
Interview with Aaron Nguyen (AAcidGreen)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: If you're in search for heavenly female vocals, hit up my colleague Lin! (https://soundbetter.com/profiles/262432-lin)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The satisfaction of the client with the end result, especially if they don't need a revision.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Bring at least one reference song which you'd like your own project to be similar to. It's more difficult to understand an artist's vision via text messages.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Currently I own a Windows PC, a Lenovo ThinkPad E490 laptop, Yamaha HS5 studio monitors, beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro and DT 990 Pro headphones, an Audient iD4 MKI audio interface, a Shure SM58, a Rode NT-1 and an Alesis V25 MIDI-keyboard. I mainly work with FL Studio 20, alternatively I use Pro Tools, Ableton Live or Logic Pro X, when I'm at the academy studio.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Improving my skills.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because it is so much more flexible.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will do my best to help them realize their goal.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I can turn the worst recording into a perfect one.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your budget? Let's work with that.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, headphones, microphone, drum set, midi-keyboard
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: As a kid I took drum lessons for a few years. I started producing in 2016 when a friend of mine showed me Fl Studio. Until now I've been making beats regularly. About two years ago I've started to take interest in the art of mixing and mastering aswell.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Dark, chill and/or ambient
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd like to meet Metro Boomin and Kenny Beats one day.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Improvised ideas tend to be a great base concept for a song.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip-Hop / Rap
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can quickly make a fitting beat on the spot as long as it's a genre I specialize in.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Precision and quality. I work very accurately and ensure that everything sounds as good as possible.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually try to get my ideas out fast so that I don't forget them. Therefore I work pretty quickly, I load up FL Studio, improvise a melody and some drums and then use that as a foundation. Once I'm happy with the result I roughly mix and master the beat, export it and finally upload it to Instagram and YouTube.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My biggest inspirations are Metro Boomin and Kenny Beats. Metro is the reason I started making beats and I admire Kenny's versatility.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly produce beats for rappers, sometimes I mix and master their songs aswell.
