Ben Hughes on SoundBetter

I am an independent mix engineer and music producer based in Cardiff. With an MSc in Music Engineering and Production, 10 years experience as an artist and producer, and specialising in rock, punk, and folk, whatever your project I can help realise your vision. I have worked with several up and coming acts in the local scene.

Every musical act has a unique sound. Whether it comes from your voice, your lyricism, or even the crappy guitar you’ve been using since you were a teenager, you’ve got something that no one else has.

I am an independent mix engineer and music producer based in Cardiff. When I’m producing a record, the most important thing for me is to take what is unique about you and make sure people get to hear it. It’s one thing to sound like your favourite artist, but it’s quite another to have a sound all your own.

I have an MSc in Music Engineering and Production, as well as 10 years experience doing sound tech. I specialise in mixing either folk or punk - anything that prizes an authenticity and feeling over an overly polished sound, but I also love working on more polished and powerful sounding mixes.

In addition to being a mix engineer, I also work as a film composer and songwriter. I am comfortable playing a wide variety of instruments and composing in a variety of styles.

    Ben is incredibly responsive and has helped me enormously with my films as both a sound engineer and composer. He is very collaborative and will adapt to the creative process. The quality of work is always of a high standard alongside a kind, professional etiquette.

    I was having trouble setting up a speaker system for my home studio, Ben was able to remotely guide me through all the necessary steps to get my studio up and running. Extremely efficient and professional. Highly recommend.

    I was given extremely short notice to have a fully recorded vocal reel for an audition, and Ben was an utter hero. He set up a piano and a mic and in 10 minutes he had recorded, mixed and sent me an exceptionally high quality recording.

    I worked with Ben on a project I was a part of called Scissorkick Victory. He was an absolutely pleasure to work with and spend time with. Personable, professional, warm and in possession of an excellent ear. He was able to realise our ideas into something we were delighted with.

    Ben was with us from start to finish, from ideas phase to the streaming service upload. His mixes still stand up today and are bright and lively.

    I'm currently working on a new project and would love to have a conversation with Ben to work with him again!
