    It's always been a dream to work with the man behind some of my all time favorite songs, and Corey seriously didn't disappoint. His ear and attentiveness to the intended audience as well as the sonics is incomparable. Honestly I'm still in awe with the way he elevated this track and I can't wait to work with Corey again

    Cory was great and very easy to work with. The process was painless, and he followed all given directions very well. Although I don't have extensive experience working with other producers, I feel that he exceeded my expectations.

    Corey's skills in mixing and mastering truly stand out. With a strong understanding of hip-hop, he navigates the technical landscape easily. His patience during the iterative process is noteworthy, leading to a top-notch final sound. Offering valuable guidance throughout, Corey is more than a sound engineer; he is a reliable mentor and a collaborator. Highly recommended!

    A producer dedicated to what he does, and the service he provides. Dedicated to realizing your taste, and overcoming it. Open to sharing ideas, and respecting the one you decide, it is clear, fast, and efficient.

    Corey did a amazing job!
    He explained his direction for my mix once he finished the first go at it. That actually helped a lot with finding the right sound for my project.
    We took a few calls to assure that we were both on the page and after a few adjustments the mix was complete!!! Corey is very professional and patient with the process! If you are looking for someone who wants to get it right for you. Pick Corey.

    Thanks Corey.

Interview with Corey Stocker

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

  2. A: Currently mixing on a couple of exciting Dolby ATMOS projects as well as new artists from Atlanta and LA.

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

  4. A: That we are mixing it in a way that appeals to us as experienced mixers. Our job is to mix it in a way that will appeal to the most listeners possible not to us as individual music industry professionals.

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

  6. A: Recently mixed new songs for artists in Mexico,Singapore, Germany, and Ireland. Also recently finished mixing an amazing new pop duo called Jack & the Other.

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

  8. A: A great ear for vocal pitch, better stereo imaging and a desire to make it the best it can be without losing any of its energy. Also a measured understanding of the sonic qualities of similar songs currently in rotation.

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

  10. A: depends on the project, I try to tailor my process to best fit the current client's needs, while maintaining the streaming friendly parameters.

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

  12. A: Daniel Groover

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: The analog digital debate is now mostly about money. With the cost of true analog recording climbing faster and faster it is completely outta reach in regards to the price of media to record on and the added time needed in studio to record to 2 inch tape for most people. These days only the largest project budgets can afford the money and time needed for an all analog recording and mix. Since it is so cost prohibitive there is no longer a level debate field for the 2 formats.

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

  16. A: Can we negotiate on price? Depends on the music and other variables.

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

  18. A: Deadmau5, I've always been a huge synthesizer freak.

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

  20. A: these days less is more. focus on timing and space. Space is super important in great music.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: Will it sound cheesy if I say listening? It works for both the client and song.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Pro Tools HD. Antelope clocking, UAD converters, Yamaha and Focal monitoring, outboard gear by API, UA, Pendulum Audio, Bryston, power by Furman.

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

  26. A: That it will sound much better when we are done or we will work on it until it does, with no additional charge.

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

  28. A: i get to listen to great music and when I'm not doing that, I get to set up the rooms where others will do the same for years to come.

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

  30. A: What's the style of sound you are shooting for?

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

  32. A: Be upfront with your requests, it makes communication easier.

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

  34. A: a life raft, axe, lighter, sat phone and water purifier. Anyone that takes recording gear to an island with no power would quickly regret that decision. That stuff is heavy!!!

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

  36. A: I started as an EDM dj in the late 90s. After that I attended Fullsail in 2001-2002. From there I moved to D.C. where I began tracking for urban and rock, mostly indy releases. Then in 2005 I decided to move to Atlanta. Once here in Atlanta I recorded a radio single for Dem Franchize Boyz on my first day and haven't really stopped since then.

  37. Q: How would you describe your style?

  38. A: laidback attitude. very deadline oriented. I like aggressive mixes for some songs but soft and glossy on others.

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

  40. A: Pop, Urban, EDM, Alternative, some singer/songwriter

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

  42. A: I'm really inspired by the energy in the music of the newer artists coming out these days.

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

  44. A: Stereo mixing for independent and major label release,Dolby ATMOS certified mixing , studio integration and wiring.
