Mixing and mastering

Aidan Batzel on SoundBetter

I've been mixing and mastering for a couple years now and know how to make your song sound like it came from the heavens.

If you send me the vocal stems/tracks, I can mix them into the song. For just $5, I will make your song sound like it came out of a professional studio. I usually take up to 3 days to get the finished product. I have executive produced a tape with my friend which we did in 2015 and I've been working on the craft since so I know what I'm doing when it comes to mixing and mastering. I also produce instrumentals. P.S - Im not the one on the track, I just mixed and mastered it for the artist "Andre Jeanson". I would like to do my business on Fiverr: https://www.fiverr.com/aidanbatz#!

Interview with Aidan Batzel

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: When I first talked about how me and my friend wanted to try music, we did a project where he was the lyracist with the actual tape, and I was the producer on the tape, producing 85% of the instrumentals. This was fun because my friend actually had a concept with what he wanted to do and that made the tape a lot more interesting than just getting "lit" on a track.

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

  4. A: Making fire instrumentals.

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

  6. A: Just got on here.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital right now, don't have the funds. But I'd probably go analog, probably because you're sending a physical signal through a physical state of hardware, unlike digital.

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

  10. A: That the finished product will sound like it's supposed to be on the radio.

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

  12. A: Always learning new methods of production.

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

  14. A: Can you make this sound? Yes I can, time will depend on how familiar I am with it.

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

  16. A: I can just turn on auto tune and the vocal is golden when in reality, I have to mess with the vibrato of it and all that so the auto tune doesn't make it sound crazy.

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

  18. A: What kind of sound are you looking for? Anything in particular, and if so, reference the track.

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

  20. A: There are a lot of "engineers" out there, but many, not all, don't put in the actual hard work to make a song sound nice.

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

  22. A: A mic, Soundcard, radio/transmitter, DAW, vinyl player

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

  24. A: Im into business right now, studying. But since high school, me and my friend wanted to get into music. Started with garageband and worked with it until I felt I could use Logic well, which Ive been using since early 2016.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Im pretty dark when I produce tracks, or really funky whenever I hear people describe my productions.

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

  28. A: Post Malone, because he has great instrumentals and hooks. Very "emotional" yet hard hitting.

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

  30. A: Really learn how a compressor works and what kinds there are, like one you'd use on a master, or one you'd use on a kick. A well compressed song makes a huge difference.

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

  32. A: Rap/Hip-Hop

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I'd probably say Mastering at this point.

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

  36. A: I bring clean vocals and a professionally sounding product.

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

  38. A: I ask what the artist would like to do that day, and start from there. Can take anywhere from 30 minutes, to a couple days depending on what theyre looking for.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have an Audio Technica condenser mic, with acoustic foam around the area. The vocal signal gets processed through a Scarlett 2i sound card and I mix in Logic Pro X.

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

  42. A: Metro Boomin, Isaiah Rashad

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

  44. A: I usually record artists and mix them into the song to their liking.
