Mixing and Mastering

Trevor B Lewis on SoundBetter

Trevor is a self taught mixing/mastering engineer and music maker from Toronto, Canada. He has always had an ear and a love for music at a very young age. Having certifications for audio mixing and mastering with Waves, Trevor continues to hone his skills and lets the music speak for itself.

Trevor has very Caribbean parents who were always playing music in the house. There would be lots of Peter Tosh and Bob Marley being played but also artists like Stevie Wonder, Donna Summers and Earth Wind & Fire to name a few. He specializes in R&B, Hip Hop, Rap and Reggae. Trevor puts all of his experience into his work to get the best possible result. Currently preferred DAW for mixing and mastering is FL Studio. All DAWS perform at a professional level being the only difference between them is the workflow and how you work in that DAW...A myth that needs to be debunked on which is better. Trevor uses UAD plugins, Waves plugins and other high quality plugins. I love sound and give my best to every song and project.

Interview with Trevor B Lewis

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Depends....digital was suppose to improve on things that analog could not do. Like an overall more consistent clean sound. Nowadays depending on the experience or sound you want to create...you may want a dirty sound or maybe a more 8 bit computer like sound for your song. So for me it depends on the experience I'm creating. Both have their benefits.

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

  4. A: My promise to my clients is that they are working with a mixing engineer who is passionate about music and who is a professional first off. I promise they will get a clear and dynamic sound from their mixed and mastered songs done by myself and who is easy to work with.

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

  6. A: Music can change your mood. It makes you feel different emotions. That's the cool thing about working in music.

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

  8. A: What tools or what DAW is the best. Its about your knowledge of the tool and how you use that tool. DAWs and most plugins are on par with each other. Unless of course you're in a professional studio.

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

  10. A: What is the experience they are creating with their current song or music.

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

  12. A: Just prepare for a guy who loves music and who is very easy going to deal with.

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

  14. A: A laptop, headphones, MPC, some mini speakers...so 4 items. Not all really gear per say but yea.

  15. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  16. A: Since 2010 with a big hiatus due to some personal issues. I've been non stop since late 2020 and don't see myself stopping now.

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: R&B with current Hip Hop drums like a Mary J Blige/Doja Cat.

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

  20. A: All R&B artists would be amazing to work with. That R&B sound just gives me the good feels. Doja Cat in particular tho...my music sound is perfect for her.

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

  22. A: EQ the reverb. If not, you can sometimes get a not as clean mix as you would like if you don't.

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

  24. A: R&B slightly edges Hip Hop for me. I often use Hip Hop drums for R&B. R&B for me creates a certain vibe that I love...like listening to an Anita Baker song...it feels good.

  25. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  26. A: I'd say creating a dynamic vibe for a song. Crisp sounds that will stand out when needed to.

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

  28. A: Dynamic magic. What the client wants I bring that vibe to life. Whether its a sad song or summer time banger. Its about creating an experience. A dope one.

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

  30. A: My work process...In regards to my own music its about the chord progression and vibe. If I feel something with that, then I know others will feel it too. With clients, I'll play the song and feel it out. Then ask about the vibe they are trying to create to make sure I understand and that we're on the same page. Based on the response I'll add the dynamic magic when I mix and master their song.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: Still in a bit of an infant stage...I have a PC and an MPC with studio headphones...that's it.

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

  34. A: Too many to list. I'm mainly a music producer but all the pros have amazing skills. From Hit-Boy, Timbaland, Metro Booming to J Dilla...Just too many to list

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

  36. A: I mainly do mixing and mastering for clients
