Andrew Robertson on SoundBetter

Music is what i love. I want to take your music to the next level in any way i can. Mixing, Recording, Editing, Tuning; everything is a possible for me. I can usually hear the finished product in my head just from a rough mix, and i work until i get that sound. No compromises and no templates. Every song is unique and so is my approach.

Currently the recording engineer for Jermaine Dupri, but in my free time i like to keep working on music since it is what i enjoy doing.

With recording i work quickly to make sure that everything is sounding right to you and that nothing in the room gets in the way with your creative process. I try to have the sound right within the first few moments so that you have a perfect vibe that is just right for you.

With mixing, i work hard to make sure that your vision is only enhanced. I try to make sure i don't get in the way of the music and utilize my summing rack to ensure the best quality possible.

For editing and tuning, my years of experience with music itself allows me to give you a result that is both accurate and musically tasteful.

Although there is a list of genres i specialize in, i have experience with all genres of music.

    5+++ I was a great pleassure for me to work with Andrew for the mix. He anticipated completely my feeling for the song and gave it a wonderful colour. He carried out the job in great detail. He is also a superb communicator. I enjoyed the contact very much and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Interview with Andrew Robertson

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

  2. A: There is not one style that i usually work on. In one month, i went from country, to gangsta rap, to conscious hip hop, to singer songwriter, to alternative rock, to european electronic, to indie electronic/rock.

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

  4. A: Apogee Symphony 32x32, Uad satellite octo, Computer, Lexicon 960L, and SSL K9000 console. console is gear, so give me that and we are good

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: My style is about connection and quality. How a song connects to a listener is important, and your songs emotional connection has to be right. Once the connection is there, then it needs to be sonically, and stylistically, accurate.

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

  8. A: What record(s) do you want this project to sound like, and what records do you want this project to beat? What would you say is the defining characteristic of your music? Who are your musical influences?

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

  10. A: have everything organized, and provide a few reference mixes that will allow a mixing engineer to hear your musical vision. Also, do not be afraid to communicate exactly how you feel. vague answers get vague results. the more precise you are, the more precise the fix will be.

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

  12. A: Yes, Lance Powell and Pablo D'Yviore are both talented engineers who i have personally worked with, and learned from.

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

  14. A: Most of my work involves mixing, however i still record, edit, and tune vocals on a frequent basis. Live band recordings happen sporadically, but are always a lot of fun

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Listening to others and understanding what they are hearing, and want to hear

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

  18. A: I went straight from graduating college, to interning and working my way up to an in house engineer at Platinum Sound Recording Studios. I then left Platinum after 4 years of not sleeping, and moved to Atlanta where i currently freelance, recording and mixing at a privately owned studio.

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

  20. A: How long will this take? Mixing is about 1 day, maybe 2 before we get into revisions. But that is all schedule dependent. Vocal tuning is about 1 day, depending on the amount of vocals. Editing, and almost everything else, is about a half to full day, depending, again, on the amount of tracks, length of song, and technical detail needed.

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

  22. A: Music is something that is a part of my life, and has been since before i was born (unusual story there), so working in music is the one thing that i just like breathing to me.

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

  24. A: I promise to work with you to make sure your dreams and goals are realized, without making things stressful. Creativity, i find, happens when someone is relaxed, which is the attitude i bring to my work, but just because i am relaxed does not mean i am lazy. I keep up with the pace, as well as maintaining an efficient work flow that is practical.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Both have there uses. Analog works great on the front end during the recording stage, where digital works wonders in the mixing stage, especially when i can have 20 1176's(compressors that cost a few thousand) all doing different things. I have yet to experience a studio with more than 8 of these wonderful compressors. Also, analog modeling technology and algorithms are becoming very accurate, so it makes using digital plugins a bit easier

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

  28. A: Currently working with a new artist named Roxanne.
