Another artist and I asked Dominic to master one of our collab tracks, and we were impressed with the quick turnaround time, cheap rate, and wonderful quality! ✨11/10 would recommend, again.✨
Working with Dominic has been a fantastic experience! As a newer artist, I appreciated Dominic's patience, reasonable rates, as well as the quick/professional service. Dominic has also assisted artists whom I look to for inspiration, and has helped produce amazing records. I highly recommend!
Interview with Dominic Rippel
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am fast and patient.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, mastering, and tracking drums and vocals.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: A lot of underground musicians that push the limits of their creativity and equipment. I like to hear new things.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's a hybrid analog/digital set up. I have the 3 leading DAWs along with a host of analog outboard, synths and effects pedals. Sometimes you have to go outside the box to harvest new tones.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I have a template for starting mixes, but am not afraid to veer off the path and get messy to get a good result.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I aim to reveal and nourish the inherent character of the sounds I work with.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Underground electronic, techno, soundtracks and punk rock.

A: As may as possible. The first is: "Can you send me some references, please?"

A: It's beyond technical. You can't just take a course and off you go. Experience and attention to detail must be at a heightened level.
