I met Rob when he was starting out in NC, and reconnected with him on my band Dæmons single “Give Me A Sign”. Even though we’re not his usual genre, his mix competes across the board easily with other pro artists. Rob definitely went above and beyond for us - pushing back another mix last minute to put on finishing touches we wanted to meet mastering deadline. We had over 200 tracks and his mix was expertly crafted! Invest in yourself + your art by choosing Rob Endling :)
I’ve been working with Rob for years now and from the very first first song we did together I knew he was the only producer I wanted to work with. No one else has the passion and understanding that he has for not only the music but for the artist as well. The first song we ever wrote and recorded together “Coma” now has millions of streams and my Spotify has 30-40k listeners every month and it’s all thanks to the hard work he puts into my music and the help he has given me along the way.
rob mixed and mastered a track for me earlier this year. & he absolutely crushhhhed it. he became a homie quick in the process with many facetimes and laughs. if you want an engineer that's more than just strictly business, he's your man. good ass dude, and and even better engineer.
Immediately when you meet Rob, you can tell how much he cares about the product. We went on to make the highest streamed music the band has ever made with Rob. Super genuine person and one of the most talented songwriter/producers the band has ever worked with.
THANK YOU, Colorblind
I worked with a lot of producers in the past, and nothing ever really clicked. Rob saw something in me that no one has before, and we were able to really make something special. We started from scratch & built my project from 0-30k monthly listeners in 3 months. I have collabs with Kellin Quinn, and Caspr thanks to Rob. Also I’ve been able to land on 5 Spotify Editorial playlists, and 1 Apple Music playlist. The project keeps on growing and growing, and it’s all because of Rob.
I worked my last album and some singles with Rob. It was an incredible experience. He understood perfectly what I was looking for in my sound and he was able to carry it out. I definitely recommend working with him. A lot of professionalism and above all very good communication, since I live in Argentina and the way to exchange ideas for work was by mail.
Interview with Rob Endling
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Im particularly proud of my work with KD BADLUNG recently. I've taken him from 0 to 30,000+ monthly listeners on spotify in just a few short months as an independent artist. Also very proud of my songwriting and topline for him. I feel like we are contantly staying on the forefront of an emerging genre.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Mixing 2 songs for Ash Graves today.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Lots of amazing skilled people on here! There are a handful that i would recommend personally.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Whatever gives me the sound I'm looking for! No rules!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To always treat you like my most important client! This is my motto actually. If you book with me, you have my full undivided attention while im working on your project!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Theres no better feeling than helping an artist realize their vision in to a tangible product!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Tbh the most common question I get asked are tips for promoting the music and getting it on Spotify playlists. I actually love helping my artists with this!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That this isn't an exact science and every mix isn't the same! Every song presents different challenges that require different solutions. What worked for one song, may not always work for another.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to profile my artists and get a feel for where they are in their career, where they fit into their genre, and what value I could provide them by working for them. After that, I like to try and gain the clearest understanding of what they are going for creatively. I will ask for as many mix references and you'd like to provide. This ensures I know what I'm aiming for.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Judge me by my work and not my pitch! A lot of producers are good salesmen, but some people are a little TOO good at selling themselves with words alone. To avoid any major disappointment, I highly suggest taking your best 3 options for producers/mixers and spending adequate time listening to their extended portfolios. Be sure to ask them specifically what job they performed on the songs that you like from their catalogue.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Definitely my Apollo interface, Kemper Modeling Profiler, My Fender '72 deluxe telecaster, My DT 1990 headphones, all that and a midi keyboard and we got a hit in the making!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out playing in bands as a teenager. Went to college for recording engineering for awhile but making music was still priority in my late teens. It wasnt until I was 23 that I had multiple other bands asking me to produce them after hearing my band. That led to opening my first commercial studio location in Greensboro North Carolina in 2015. In 2018 I moved to Las Vegas where I was hired at The Hideout Recording studio by Platinum selling and Grammy nominated producer Kevin Churko (Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Skillet, In This Moment). When covid hit, I decided to move to Atlanta and focus more on remote mixing and mastering work from a private studio and Ive never been happier!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Definitely a hybrid of Rock and Pop. I grew up listening to pop punk and rock, but in my early twenties I grew a profound appreciation for pop music. Once I started integrating top 40 pop influences into my songwriting and mixing, I saw my career really start to take shape.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Bring Me The Horizon. I feel like hands-down they are pushing the genre forward more than any other band right now. That kind of constant boundary-pushing is a big inspiration for my productions.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Leave headroom in your session! When bringing samples and melodies in from Splice into your DAW, be aware that those sounds are "pre mastered" and already processed to be as loud as possible, so youll need to turn them down considerably so they aren't over powering your vocals in your demo mix. This will keep you from over compressing your vocals to try to make them louder as well!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly Pop-inspired rock and alternative. But I also have a #2 iTunes Hop Hop charting record so I really do work well in multiple genres. If its current and modern, I work with it.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My attention to detail in vocal production. I like for every not to be timed and tuned correctly. I want the vocals to wrap around your ears in the mix and be perfectly audible and balanced with the music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: For productions I bring my deep experience and knowledge of songwriting including music theory and crafting vocal hooks. For mixing and mastering Im bringing an objective but creative approach to balancing your song. Giving you a sonic brand that will set you apart from other artists while still letting you fit in alongside them!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work 9AM-5PM Monday through Friday and weekends when necessary to meet deadlines. I put a big emphasis on communication with the artist because I like to have as much information as possible to satisfy their desired outcome. I can complete most mixes within 3-4 hours from the time I start working on the mix including session preparation time.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is located in Atlanta GA. I use both Pro Tools or Logic Pro X. I mix ITB (In The Box). I find this to be the most streamlined method of modern music production. I only use the best plugin suites from the top manufacturers as well as boutique plugins from some of the best software developers in the world that make my mixes unique from any others.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am constantly gaining new inspirations from the latest songs and artists on the scene. I am always listening to new trends, genres, and emerging artists to make sure my productions and mixes stay on the cutting edge.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most artists come to me for a full scale production mix and master. This means constructing the song from the ground up, producing the instrumental, co writing the lyrics/melody, and providing the mixed and mastered completely finished song ready to be released!
