    Samuel did a fabulous job mixing our song "Totuus". He made me sound just amazing despite of a no so great quality vocal recording, and the balance of the track and the little changes he made to the arrangement are jut top notch. Highly recommended!!

    Samuel is a talented mix-master pro; this is my third work done with him and I recommend. It is good to work with him because of clear communication and excellent result. My work with him was in pop style, but I believe he's able to work in lot of different genres without any problem!

    Awesome job (again)! Very pleased with the results of my second single mixed and mastered by Samuel. Besides the technical aspects, the communication is smooth and the delivery is very fast.

    Samuel is a very talented pro. Overachieved my expectations. The communication was always fast, clear and smooth, no problem at all. He revised as much as I needed without any complaint and the result was amazing! For sure, I will look for him again for my upcoming projects!

    Samuel is awesome! I did some vocals for a great song of his, and he gave me the perfect balance of specific direction and artistic freedom. I loved his clear and fast responses, his professional behavior, and his overall lovely and kind attitude. For a singer, being able to sing songs you actually really like, combined with someone with a great attitude and professional behavior- it's rare and wonderful! Can't say enough good things about working with Samuel! :)

    I just did a mastering for Samuel. This was our very first work done together but I truly hope we get to work a lot more in the future as well!

    This was a great experience! Samuel guided me through the preparation of the stems, and it all made sense. He brought clarity to the song and also made good arrangement suggestions. The balance between compressor/EQ, rev/delay was achieved as only a true professional can do it. His approach and commitment are rare things to find in any marketplace.

Interview with Samuel Aalto

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

  2. A: Adele, the reason is obvious. She is just amazing singer.

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

  4. A: No question is a stupid one. I´ll be glad to consult you about your song before mixing it.

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

  6. A: That mixing will make poor quality tracks sound great, you can do some extreme rescue Eq but it will not sound like Lady Gaga..:)

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I mix in the box. It´s just more flexible and the plugins are really good these days.

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

  10. A: I am doing constantly production and mixing to local artist and here at Soundbetter.

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

  12. A: I try to bring first of all clarity, that´s very important to get the message trough. Refinement also to get that "expensive" sound. Then if needed I can suggest some arrangement changes, maybe to level up the energy in the song towards the end. Or make the flow of the song to go smoother. Of course I will not touch anything if not wanted. Power and punch of course!

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

  14. A: Mostly electronic and pop. But that is just because these are the most popular genres at the moment. I would love to do more rock oriented and band music in general .

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

  16. A: Ha ha, less is more!! But still you need to have the harmonies to relate with the melody line, good beat of course, and don't forget the bass :

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

  18. A: First, If they have a reference song, or otherwise strong opinion about the mixing. Then I´ll try to implement that vision. And do they feel they need help in arrangement. How much tuning they want to vocals etc..

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

  20. A: I´ll give what I´ve got to make you sound hip as long as you are happy with it.

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

  22. A: Most commonly I will do mixing, then producing. I also play guitar.

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

  24. A: First I try to really listen where the client is aiming for with his or hers production. What is the genre and overall feeling of the piece. Usually I will do a fast mix first just to know if we are on the same level with client. Then either I´ll make a different approach or continue to polishing the mix.

  25. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  26. A: Overall understanding of music, I have listened wide genres of different music, classical to country. Played instrument nearly all my life. My father was a musician and so on.
