4 ReviewsEndorse Aaron Ahmad
Amazing job! Really took the time to make sure the sound was polished and all notes were sorted. Very happy with the result.
Did a great job, highly recommended
By far the best experience I have had on SoundBetter. Really easy to work with, knew exactly what I wanted and got it done very quickly. Hope to work together again soon
Aaron is such a great guy! it did not feel like it was a chore for him, but rather he was attentive to what I felt were minor issues and was always available to get the work done on time and with such an amazing quality!
Would recommend a hundred times over!
Interview with Aaron Ahmad
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this for 10 years now. I've was always learning, playing, and recording music when I was growing up, and just kept doing it.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Dom Morley. 100%.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I don't think it matters much. It's more about flow and inspiration. Analog can be expensive, cumbersome, and fragile. Digital can be overwhelming, complex, and excessive.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's not creative.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to hear about their inspiration and references for their work. It helps me hear the music from their seat and helps me understand what they're looking for.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Mac. Auratones. Quad amp. Push2. Backup drive.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Find a set of headphone or speakers you can learn, and trust your ears.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It's hard to say. I make sure to keep working on good music, rather than any one type. Good music is good music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Hearing the space in the music and manipulating the instruments to help build a better mix and picture.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I help bring space and movement to songs, giving them a life outside the speakers so the listen can feel like they're in a space with the artists, whether thats transporting them to the club, arena, an intimate one-to-one performance, or out into space!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I try to keep a balance of working in and out of the computer. I run everything on Macs and use Apogee, UA, and Avid interfaces. These allow me to record in and hardware insert gear around the studio. I then run everything to Quad amps to power the auratones, NS10s, and KRKs.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I really like the work of Ariel Rechtshaid. His writing and productions are always so interesting.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm often doing such a wide range of work with different clients, from recording artists, to editing and organising existing sessions, to mixing and mastering singles and records.
