Braun Music Studio

Remote Mixing & Mastering

Braun Music Studio on SoundBetter

Hi there! My name is Filipe, but people usually call me Braun, which is my second name. I've got a Diploma on Audio Engineering and Music Technology by Pulse College/Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin/Ireland. I've also got several courses (Mixing in the Box, Mixing FX, among others) I currently live in Recife/Brazil andwork on my own studio.

What I can offer you is all my knowledge and experience on mixing and mastering. I've been doing it for nearly 7 years now and I like to think I'm getting better and better. I study and practice professionally everyday. The thing is I love what I do. So, it's just natural I guess.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

Interview with Braun Music Studio

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

  2. A: Not really. I'm new to the platform and am getting to know it now. But I that's one of the goals: get to know the community and support people who are in here.

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

  4. A: You'll have the best of me. Dedication is the big word here.

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

  6. A: It's a different challenge everyday. We have to deal with people's expectations. The crazy routine on a studio really fascinates me.

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

  8. A: Sound Engineering needs study and dedication. Some people who work on this field just don't understand that. We have to make some effort to understand and dominate the craft.

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

  10. A: Be patient. Don't just hire the first guy you find. Or the most expensive and famous. There's a huge amount of competent people out there.

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

  12. A: I've been working with audio since 2013. When I decided to the this for a living, I really invested on my studies (and still do) to learn all about the job. I've got a Diploma on Audio Engineering and Music Technology by Pulse College/Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin/Ireland. I've also got several courses (Mixing in the Box, Mixing FX, among others) I currently live in Recife/Brazil and work on my own studio.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: That's a hard one. I really depends on what kind of music I'm working on. But one thing a I always like to have solid and well defined is my low end. I like to keep them punchy.

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

  16. A: There are several. Nowadays I'm listening a lot to a band called Scary Pockets. They've been doing some amazing funk covers. I'd really enjoy working with them.

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

  18. A: Never two or more verses or choruses sound exactly the same. Even if the lyrics change, try to bring something new (or even take some elements) to keep listener's attention.

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

  20. A: I've been doing a lot o alternative rock lately. But I've also done and enjoy working with funk, reggae, pop... I believe every gender can have nice music.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: The attention and care I give to every step of the process is my strongest skill, I guess.

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

  24. A: I can produce, record, mix and master. Sometimes I do the whole process, sometimes just part of it.

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

  26. A: For me, music is all about feeling. When you're alone in your room composing a song and think about sharing that with the world, what you really want is to people to understand what went on on your head on that moment. So, what to I bring to a sing? Well, I try to bring up those feeling which are not easy to explain with words only

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

  28. A: What usually happens is a local client gets to know my studio somehow (online or by recommendation). After that, we set up a meeting to talk about the production. Once we agree on what the goal is, we set up a date to start recording and a deadline (which is flexible, depending on how complex is the job). After recording, we start the mixing and mastering process, which I like to do together with the client. I'm really open to suggestions. After all, it's your work.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: I use Pro Tools 10 as my main DAW. I've also got Logic Pro X, which I find better for some little thing in particular. I basically work with digital plugins. I really love the way some of them emulate analogue gear. But, better yet, some of them give us possibilities that never existed on the analogue world. I Listen to my mixes on a pair of Yamaha HS5 monitors, and also on Audio Technica's ATH-M50x Headphones

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

  32. A: I really admire Sylvia Massy's works. She is always thinking outside the box and that's something I try to apply in any field of my life.
