Remote Mixing & Mastering

Niels Zimmer on SoundBetter

I'm doomed! I have no release credits, no big studio and no awards. So if this is what you are looking for - that's not me. But if your looking for a skilled remote mixing engineer, who knows his stuff and gets mixes radio ready, don't look any further.

Interview with Niels Zimmer

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I mix "in the box" with Pro Tools. Though, I own a cherry picked toolbox, mixing is about techniques, not the processors one can show off.

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

  4. A: I will work hard to realize your vision of a production.

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

  6. A: I'm always working sober! ;)

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

  8. A: A flintstone, a letherman wave, a linen blanket, a 18V / 4.6A solar power plant and my mac book pro

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

  10. A: If your DAWs fan is blowing the curtains, overthink your plug-in-chains.

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

  12. A: I'm most comfortable with natural instrumentations.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: I love to carve out tiny details of a performance. I think of this as little surprises to spice up a mix.

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

  16. A: Communications first! Getting your goals and personal investment is my starting point. After receiving all files I setup my session, look out for flaws to be edited or adressed, get into the structure of the production. Usually a day after that, I start my mixing, and there the flow goes.
