Niels Zimmer on SoundBetter

Recording's done, the tracks are save and sound, so now you need them mixed to let them shine. Tell me your vision. I will put over 20 years of experience into your tracks to craft a mix that's ready for mastering.

Since mixing is as well a craft as an art, we need to check out if you and your song fit to me as the mix engineer. You can send me your tracks and I will make a roughmix for you. It will be kind of an enhanced roughmix, just to show off the basic skills and style I will bring to the mix.
I will not go on with a mix if I'm not positive to get a great results out of it. Your time is precious, and I would never waste it. The roughmix will be ready in short time and is without charge. This will give us the oportunity to make the best decision for further business.

What I need to get started:
- Your multi track recordings (this can be single files or Pro Tools session files)
- reference tracks (any songs, artists you have in mind about the sound of the mix)

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

Interview with Niels Zimmer

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: I believe this discussion is a waste of time. If it sounds good, it sounds good.

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

  4. A: I work on your tracks until everyone is satisfied.

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

  6. A: I like most to listen to the single tracks of a song and get to these moments, where the performers skills and feelings combine to something exeptional. To carve out those moments in a mix is my challenge.

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

  8. A: Trust your feeling if a service provider is serious about his job. And it's alright to ask decent questions to figure this out.

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

  10. A: As a person I have a perspective, while I'm always trying to be objective. The perspective is the art, the objective is the craft.

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

  12. A: I listen to the tracks I was given. Listening,listening and listening until I get a sound feeling about the artists intention. While listening to the tracks I usualy fall in love with some part(s) or elements, which will be my personal starting point to mix a track. I carve out my personal favorite in a way I want it to sound, and build the mix around it.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I mix in the box with a very deliberate selection of plug-ins. There is no such thing as a "preset mix"!

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

  16. A: 5 x gaffer tape

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

  18. A: Andrew Scheps, Mark Needham

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

  20. A: Mixing
