Mixing/Mastering Engineer

Luke Liversedge on SoundBetter

Affordable, professional mixing and mastering with pro level software in a well treated room.

Graduated from Pacific Audio Visual Institute in 2013 (Audio Engineering and Production).

I'm offering affordable, professional level mixing and mastering services.

I've just invested thousands in my Mixing/Mastering studio. I'm now doing audio engineering full time, and looking to get some more practical experience with different genres.

I'll mix and/or master any type of music, will also edit podcasts and other audio.

I use Studio One 3 Professional for all my mixing and mastering.
I have the Ozone 8 Advanced Mastering Suite and every Slate Digital plugin.
I use KRK VXT6" studio monitors for the main mixing and mastering process and test the final masters out on half a dozen different sound systems.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Luke Liversedge

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: All digital for me. I don't record anything, I just mix and master in the box with lots of really good software and a powerful PC.

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

  4. A: Try to give me as clear an idea as possible of what sound you're going for and we can work to achieve it. I'll discuss this with the customer beforehand to make sure I know what sound they're wanting before I start. It often helps if the customer provides a reference track -a song that may sound similar to what they're going for- so I can model it around that.

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

  6. A: To get their mix to sound exactly how it does in their head. Achieving their vision is the point, if it only sounds great to me then it doesn't sound great yet.

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

  8. A: I get to listen to music all day! And make it better!

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

  10. A: How long will it take? And it always depends, I usually have to see the project in its entirety before I give any estimates.

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

  12. A: Most people have no idea how much time and effort goes into the audio engineering side of music production

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

  14. A: Basically just that, what sound are we trying to achieve? Do you have any ideas for reference tracks?

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

  16. A: Assuming I had power on this island I'd take: 1. my computer with my DAW and all my software. 2. my KRK VXT6" Monitors 3. my AT2050 Mic 4. my Maschine MK3 (built in audio interface) 5. ... and I guess I'd need a screen for the computer :|

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

  18. A: Went to school for Audio Engineering and Production back in 2012-2013 then worked mostly in live sound setup for. Been setting up shows and working other jobs for a few years. Decided to get some money together and invest in turning my living room into a mixing/mastering studio. Now I'm doing this full time.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: My musical style is all over the place. I listen to everything, if its a well produced, catchy song, I'll enjoy it.

  21. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  22. A: Not too sure, most of my favorite artists are classic rock and all gone now. But I do like some hip hop for sure, working with Eminem or Dre would be pretty amazing.

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

  24. A: Always try to have a specific goal when you make changes to a track rather than just trying to mess around until you find a good sound.

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

  26. A: Classic rock, hip hop, jazz, blues. What ever I can get my hands on.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Mixing. Just finding that emotion that the song is conveying and translating that into the mix.

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

  30. A: A love of music and fascination with mixing and mastering music. I love what I do and I'll go the extra mile to make sure the client's vision is achieved and they get the sound they were after.

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

  32. A: I start with the big picture. I spend a lot of time getting the levels right then usually edit busses first and work towards more specific things from there.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: I've put a lot of money into turning this place into a full mixing/mastering studio. From the top of the line software and hardware to the acoustic treatment of the room. I use Studio One 3 Professional as my DAW I use KRK VXT6" as my main studio monitors

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

  36. A: All the greats
