Hello,

I am a mixing and recording engineer who has worked on Grammy nominated projects, and a few Platinum records as well. I Have plenty of experience, and i look forward to working on your next project. I can accommodate most budgets, so just reach out and ask. I can also be another set of ears to give you a new perspective.

I offer years working in a major recording studio in New York City, and spending plenty of time getting it right. Whether it is Recording, Editing, Vocal Tuning, Mixing, or a combination of them, i am your guy.

When it comes to recording, i am fast, quick, accurate, and versatile in many different recording techniques. I make sure that you can stay focused and creative, leaving all the technical stuff to me. hear a sound, then let me know what it is and we can make it happen quickly.

For editing and vocal tuning, i can move quickly to make sure that everything is locked in and grooving. Needs some drums quantized? I use different techniques and tools to make sure we get the exact feel you need, whether it is tight and quantized, or loose and in a pocket. For vocals, i work to give you anything from a natural sound, to a processed sound that is stylistic to your record.

For Mixing, i spend about a day or two to make sure the mix is right. All you have to do is send some references, a rough mix, the files, and any notes you have on how you want the record to sound. I make sure that everything sounds balanced, full, and feels great. You will have a professional sounding project that also feels right. Contact me with questions.

Cheers

Interview with Andrew Robertson

What are you working on at the moment?
Currently finishing up the next ep for the artist 1st Vows
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Yes, Lance Powell is a talented engineer who i have personally worked with, and learned from.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
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.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
i have been mixing mostly, but i still get the occasional recording and vocal tuning gig. i really miss the recording aspect because that is where a lot of creativity takes place, and you usually make creative decisions in the moment that help to define the song. it is an amazing process to be a part of.
Analog or digital and why?
My greatest preference is using digital with a hybrid integration of analog gear throughout the process. If it is tracking, then the more analog the better. If it is mixing, everything is more digital with heavy use of slate and Uad plugins. There will be some analog gear used in the mixing process, but the recall process needs to be accurate when dealing with multiple mixes throughout the course of a week or month.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
My promise is to get the project to the level you want it at. it is not done until you say it is, and it will be commercially competitive while maintaining its musicality.
What do you like most about your job?
working on something that is a passion, every single day
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
what record(s) do you want this project to sound like, and what records do you want this project to beat.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Apogee Symphony 32x32, Uad satellite octo, Computer, Lexicon 960L, and SSL K9000 console. console is gear, so give me that and we are good
How would you describe your style?
My style is not defined by sound, but by emotion. My goal is to make music transcend be heard. it needs to be felt. if your music is sad, then listeners should not only feel the sadness, but they should feel the tears forming from the emotion that you are conveying. that is also a performance thing, but i try to make the emotion come to life inside the listener. If it is some hard rap or rock, then each person should want to be moved to jump around and be aggressive. If it is something relaxing, then the sounds should move you to chilling out, and just vibe to the music as you enjoy life in that moment.
What type of music do you usually work on?
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.
