With a certificate in independent music production Jesse Wieschollek wants to take his career as an engineer to the next level. With outstanding love for music, Jesse Wieschollek is dedicated to making your music sound crispy, live, and filled with excitement. See you in the Mixing console.
In terms of what I have to offer, I would like to help artists that want something better out of their home recordings. The services that I would like to offer would be mixing, mastering, and if at all possible studio time as well.
I have over ten years of experience in terms of recording, mixing, and also being an artist myself. My main strength would have to be a mixing engineer. EQ, compression, and vocal clarity is something I take a deep interest in. In 2013, I applied for an independent music production course at Seneca at York in Toronto, ON. I wanted to further my career as an artist and also as an engineer. The program only accepted 20 people each year, when I got accepted I knew my career was going to get deeper and a lot more serious. Once I graduated and received my certificate I started my journey once again. Since then I have opened my own studio in the heart of downtown Kitchener. My goal is to help my community with following their dreams as an artist/musician, and put them on a right path to accomplish what or who they want to be as a creative artist/musician.
I hope to hear from anyone with questions or inquiries about how I do business. Thank you.

Interview with Jesse Wieschollek
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for my clients would be, recordings, mixing and mastering.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have three separate rooms all isolated from each other and sound proofed. 1st room is the control room where I do all my mixing. 2nd room is the isolation booth where my artists record. 3 room is a band room where I can have a live band record, room for a full band.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First when I meet with a client I find out exactly what it is that they want to do, and find out what I can do for them. Then once I figure that out we book a session at the studio. Once they are here and I get them into the isolation booth the first thing I like to do is set levels and get a nice crisp sound through my equipment. Then once the recording process is done, I start cleaning up the vocals(taking away any noises that are not needed) light EQing, compression, reverb, I sit and listen to the song over and over again and make sure everything is level. Review with client, ask questions, make sure they are happy with everything I'm doing. Once all effects are on the track and everything is sounding how we both want. Then we get ready for mastering.
