    Omg Adam was insane, I literally cried at the finished product, I generally could give him 10 stars if I could, he was so great at feedback and delivery time, I had an issue with my Facebook being hacked so it took a while to get back into my account but im soooo happy with the finished product, Will 100 percent use him again xxx

    Adam is so great to work with. He's diligent, listens to my suggestions, provides edits as necessary, and is thorough to ensure the work is done to meet your needs/desires. He takes your work and makes it better - professional, full, rich, and powerful! This is my second project with Adam, and it won't be the last!

    Fast, Professional, and genuine!
    Adam takes the time to get to know what sound the artist is looking for.
    He also made sure that I was 100% satisfied with the end product.

    Adam even went above and beyond for me by revisiting the mix a while later to point out some things he felt would make the mix sound even better!

    Overall a great person to work with! Very satisfied.

    Every time I've worked with Adam he continues to out due himself. From having great feedback to being flexible. I can't recommend his services highly enough, you really get what you pay for. The tracks that I've had him work on so far sound immaculate. I can't wait to work with him again!

    Adam was amazing - responsive, enthusiastic, helpful, talented. He received feedback and immediately made adjustments (which were hardly even necessary) and provided a fast, and more importantly, AMAZING final product. He knew what I was going for, delivered it, and communicated every step of the way. Highly recommend.

    I will definitely work with him again - looking forward to it actually!

    Adam is amazing to work with. I love his positive energy and vibe. It's such a good state to be in when working on music. He was really patient in order to achieve my vision and brought lots of great ideas to my song. Will definitely be working with him again!

    Awesome!

    Right from the beginning Adam took the time to really get a feel for the sound I like, then he explored all sorts of different approaches to mixing my recording. Any revisions I requested were received enthusiastically and the turnaround was quick each time! Adam communicates excellently and gets genuinely excited about helping you achieve your musical vision - such a pleasure.
    Most importantly, he is great at what he does and the track sounds awesome!

    10/10 would recommend!

    Adam is incredible at what he does, to put it simply. He has a great ear for music and the way things should sound and isn't afraid to contribute ideas that he finds will make your song sound better. It has been a great process and he has a great turn around rate. I'll be starting a new job before the week ends!

    Adam is by far one of the best mixing engineers I've had the pleasure of working with. Not only is he studious, diligent, and dedicated but he really brought out the best in the song I had him mix. Cannot wait to work on the next track with him.

    I’ve been working with Adam Tune for over a decade. From experience, I can tell you that he’s a great mentor to both young artists and aspiring producers a like. He’ll take your production from 0 to 100 while always mainting the integrity of your original vision. No one’s better.

Interview with Adam Tune

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

  2. A: Production/ Creative Mixing is what I mostly do. It can range from an artist handing me their acapella, and I build production around that, or they hand me a full song, and I replace certain sounds to make the track sound better as a whole. Sometimes its easier to replace a sound rather than just mix a bad sound.

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

  4. A: Just Blaze, Cashmere Cat, Mura Masa, Machine drum, Justin Martin, Chris Lorenzo, Izniik.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I used to mix on an SSL and NEVE console, with outboard gear, but with my heavy touring schedule, I do all my production and mixing in the box. UAD/ Fabfilter/ Soundtoys/ WAVES are my go to plugins and Omnisphere, Kontact, and samples are my go to VST instruments and production tools. Ears over gear.

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

  8. A: Find the focus of the track. Sometimes its vocals, sometimes its a lead drop instrument. And complimenting the song rather than getting carried away with all the production tricks. Sometimes I spend days on a vocal sound and let the music be the background and thats all the track needed. I'm also a big believer in seeing the artists vision. I've used mixers to mix my groups music before and I love when I can have a good working relationship with them and they don't have an ego. I'm easy when It comes to changes and I don't charge for changes or have limits. It's done when its mastered and the artist is happy.

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

  10. A: I bring my years of experience working with artists of all types. And also being an artist myself, I've been on the other side of this. I understand what its like. Sometimes you have to try things to know its not right.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Seeing what the artist was going for and not trying to push my vision on the artist. I would say creatively Mixing is my skill.

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

  14. A: Pop/ Electronic/ Trap/ Rock

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

  16. A: Less is more. Sometimes you need to strip the track and introduce each element on its own and see what can stand on it's own. Sometimes people clutter songs and they don't need to. Also, take breaks and come back. I often take a 30 minute break and go listen to some other music and come back and start deleting bad ideas.

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

  18. A: Probably Phil Collins. He was the first Cassette I had, and that would be really nostalgically cool for me. I few years ago I would have said Just Blaze, but I have now haha. He's an amazing producer.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Poppy, but I get down with a lot of underground music, so I have my ear to the ground of whats going on.

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

  22. A: I was initially an engineer with a Big Broadcaster, recording orchestras and jazz groups, while also working on R&B at the time. I was always producing pop, but then got into electronic music with my group Keys N Krates

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

  24. A: Laptop and Hard Drive/ Headphones/ Midi Controller/ SPD-SX

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

  26. A: Find Someone who fits your vibe and doesn't have an ego

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

  28. A: What Music are you listening to?

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

  30. A: That you have to have a big studio to get a big studio sound.

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

  32. A: How much haha.

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

  34. A: I get to work on lots of different music and learn from every project I work on

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

  36. A: I'm not happy unless you're happy

  37. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  38. A: Digital. So much more freedom and less time consuming. And it's getting closer and closer

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

  40. A: Encatada Live - Best vocal tuner on here

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

  42. A: Working on a Diplo Remix with Santigold and Little Yaghty

  43. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
