Jordan McLeod on SoundBetter

LA based mixing engineer and music producer who will bring your music to a professional level. Unlimited mix revisions (within reason) and 72 hour turnaround time. Let's get started!

Jordan McLeod is a music producer, mix engineer, and songwriter. He began his career by DJing and producing in his bedroom which led to the formation of electronic music duo Kids Want Techno. The duo saw success as their music was streamed millions of times around the world and played gigs with EDC, The Chainsmokers, Matoma, Lost Kings, and more.

Music would eventually take Jordan to LA where he attended Icon Collective College of Music. While at school, he began working at The Fab Factory music studio and gained hands-on experience. Also, as a dream come true, he frequently sat in with legendary Grammy winning mix engineer Dave Pensado to learn everything he could over the course of his time at the studio.

After almost 2 years at The Fab Factory, Jordan took what he learned and left to focus on freelancing and his own music project. He has since diversified his genre range, working with all styles from pop to rock and r&b to singer-songwriter. Jordan brings knowledge of production and songwriting into the mixing process; offering a more creative perspective. His decision making process focuses on the feeling and emotions of a song, breathing more life into the final mix.

    absolutely incredible! it's always such a pleasure working with Jordan, his bio, "record finisher" holds beyond true. if you ever need something looked at, mixed, mastered, or just help with he gives back tenfold. i've been working with him on a handful of my previous records and it's always stellar. He even reached out to me to be apart of his own upcoming project. all around amazing work.

    Jordan's worth every penny and more.

    Not only does he go above and beyond on a project but he is also willing to help you improve your work. He's once again shown to be someone worth any price.

    Amazing mixes from a professional and friendly guy. I had 5 songs mixed and the effort he put into each one really made them come to life. Always friendly and I enjoyed chatting with him. Couldn't ask for any better!

    First off, I want to thank SoundBetter for linking me up with Jordan 2 years ago. We hit it off and he's been my go to guy for everything from producing to mixing. I highly recommend him! He's super professional, a team player and very detail oriented. I'm really grateful we've connected and I'm excited for both of our future projects. Thank you Jordan! :-)

    Half of me doesn't want to leave this review so I can keep Jordan to myself. But I honestly couldn't speak more highly of him and his work.

    Amazing professional (which is often hard to find in the music industry), incredible patience, great ability to let individual sounds co-exist, very knowledgable, and overall just a great experience. You honestly can't lose working with Jordan and I couldn't recommend him more.

Interview with Jordan McLeod

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

  2. A: Kevin Parker. He can write, play, sing, produce, mix, and perform at such a high level.

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

  4. A: Musicians: Tame Impala, M83, Daft Punk, The xx Engineers: Dave Pensado, Serb Ghenea, Josh Gudwin, Tom Norris

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

  6. A: I'm not familiar with anyone else on SoundBetter.

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

  8. A: Is mastering included in the price of mixing? Yes.

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

  10. A: When it comes to mixing, I like to start with the very basics: setting faders levels and doing basic EQ and compression to build the foundation of the mix. From there I begin to work the vocals, then will add elements back in starting with the drums and building up from there.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: My home studio set up consist of Yamaha MSP5 studio monitors, an UAD Apollo Twin Quad, a Custom Hackintosh with Pro Tools 12, Logic X, and Ableton 10. Currently, I work completely in the box with top of the line plugins such as UAD, iZotope, and Soundtoys.

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

  14. A: I have been working with an artist called LEADR for over a year and the music is finally started to be released. He is an incredible singer, songwriter, and producer and I am so happy to have been apart of it. I helped produce, record vocals, and mix a few of the songs that are coming.

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

  16. A: Know what you are looking, what you expect the final product to sound like. Let me know what you like so far, and what you think needs more improvement. Be as detailed as possible to help me do the best job that I can do.

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

  18. A: I have been doing this for about 7 years now. I started out DJing when I was in high school and soon started to create my own music. I moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2018 to attend a year long music production school and graduated at the end of the year. I worked at The Fab Factory learning from the great mixing engineer Dave Pensado for almost 2 years. I now freelance engineer while continuing to work on my own personal artist project that I hope will be ready to release near the end of 2020.

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

  20. A: Don't let your ego second guess creative decisions, feel the music and use that for direction.

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

  22. A: A creative ear that can show you a whole new perspective on your song. If that's not what you are looking for, I will execute your rough mix to perfection just the way you imagined it.

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

  24. A: MacBook Pro, Apollo Twin, Stratocaster, MIDI Keyboard, Microphone

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

  26. A: EDM, Pop & Indie Electronic

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

  28. A: Do you have a reference track? What don't you like about the track? How do you imagine the final version to sound? Are you open to me making creative changes that I feel might be best for the track?

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

  30. A: My own solo project.

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

  32. A: That I do not know what I am doing.

  33. Q: How would you describe your style?

  34. A: Indietronica

  35. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  36. A: It has to be a mix of both. Mixing in the box is a lot easier and efficient, however, there is not denying the warmth and color that analog can provide which is why summing though gear is a great way to keep it alive.

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

  38. A: Mixing and Producing

  39. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  40. A: Being a hybrid of producer and engineer, crossing two different sets of skills in a way that delivers a unique final product.
