Remote mixing and mastering

Tripple Tree Music on SoundBetter

I am an experienced and art school-skilled mixer, owning a small studio with a large amount of hi-res e-drums. I can provide ready to master music tracks using the latest, pro, in-the-box gear (hi-end analog emulations). If your recording is a bit weak, I can provide a killer drum track for your mix. Mastering is possible, be it on semi-pro level.

I specialize in Classic Rock, Alternative Rock, Funk, Blues, Indie. Dance is possible, but will get an analog touch. If you have video material, I can process that too.

My background is Club DJ (1985-1990), Drumming (1996-), Drummer for hire (2014-), mixer (2011 -), mastering engineer (2016-).

I offer mixes (single or album), masters (single or album), drumtracks for your mix (>15 different "Superior Drummer" kits)

Interview with Tripple Tree Music

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

  2. A: Mixing the debut album for my band Tripple Tree. It was damn tricky, with a singer who couldn't sing. That's why I am remastering, the guitarist and bass player took over lead vocals

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

  4. A: Remastering the debut album of my band Tripple Tree. That, and some live gigs in the Utrecht summer scene

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Digital - the analog emulations I use are expensive, too. I don't have the room and money for 20 acoustic drumkits - that's why they live inside my computer. Because I work in the digital domain, I can deliver at really low prices per mix - and fast, at that.

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

  8. A: Your music will rock

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

  10. A: I make recordings shine in ways I didn't deem possible myself

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

  12. A: Why is the mix so quiet? "It still needs mastering" Why is the mix so bland? "It still needs mastering" Why is mastering optional? "I like doing it, but I am limited in experience and ULTRA-EXPENSIVE gear"

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

  14. A: Mixing is easy, anyone can do it. Mastering can be carried out by robots like LANDR.

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

  16. A: What sound are you looking for (reference track)

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

  18. A: Garbage in = Garbage out. Please, take care of a decent performance and record in-sync

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

  20. A: Drums Computer Headphone All my plugins on a usb stick My never failing set of ears

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

  22. A: Hey, I had quite other things at hand. This is a hobby gone dead serious :) Been mixing since 2011 (books, Youtube). Because my band's album needed proper mixing, I completed a full course in mixing in 2017

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Unconventional

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

  26. A: The Prophets of Rage. Because I think Rock should be about strong messages. And because they are old, like me :)

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

  28. A: Used specialized plugins for vocals - otherwise, you will get lost with sub-par material

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

  30. A: (Alternative/Indie) Rock

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: To add a strong live drumtrack if the original recording lacks one

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

  34. A: Punch and arrangement

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

  36. A: First, get a great drum sound without compression on the buss Let the bass shine and cut through the drums. (subfiltering and amping) Then, find a place for all the instruments in the stereo mix, including (re-) amping Work on the vocals, for mid presence and air Finally, add necessary fx - and then, maybe, some more
