Jack Rouben on SoundBetter

I've mixed Billboard #1 hits in a variety of genres from Pop, R&B/Funk to Disco including the iconic "I Will Survive", the biggest selling dance single of all time.

Making music is not easy. No doubt you have put a lot of time and effort into getting your track to come out just right. Now it is time to present it to the world with a mix that best captures its feel. You have choices. You can chase the trend and sound like everyone else, or work with someone who will treat your music as its own unique expression. My mixes have generated millions in sales in various genres. Some are classics that are still being played regularly. Experience matters. If you are curious to hear what could be, then let me help you create something that may stand the test of time.

    Jack is absolutely positively outstanding!! I came to Jack with a very big project and he worked with me patiently throughout the whole process and was very sensitive to any changes I had. Jack delivered very clean, crisp, and authentic mixes - rare to find these days. He was collaborative and added his own flare to each track providing me with final products that exceeded my expectations in every way. My songs sound professional and comparable to any quality mix. I'm grateful that Jack agreed to work with me and I'm excited to share with everyone the huge role he played in making this happen!

    Second mix with Jack and he is an excellent mixing engineer. His work is of high quality, in details, and he is a great listener. Very patient, he makes revisions until you are satisfied. We recommend Jack for your projects without hesitation... Next mix with him without any doubt

    Jack is a sensitive genius - nothing less.
    I have worked with top engineers in Stockholm, London, Dublin and LA and never in my life have I got a mix that is so respectful to every channel. The sonic sensitivity to every second in the track was a quality you very rarely see. Jack is a mastermind and I can't wait to work with him on my next release.

    After numerous attempts to get my music mixed professionally, out of nowhere Better Sound popped up in my email, I never knew that this site existed, there I found Jack , One of the most successful and influential sound engineers of our times. I knew this was god sent and after sending him my first song to mix, it was pure magic.

    If patience has a name, it's Jack Rouben. :) Ditto with skill and creativity. We tried Jack after a less successful experience (not on this site), and he gave us exactly what we were looking for: An emotional mix created by someone who truly listened to the music and appreciated the genre we were targeting. It should be added we specifically looked for someone with old school experience, so he was definitely a perfect fit for our project. Also, the project wasn't in English, yet he handled the emotions of the track accurately.

    Jack Rouben is a legend. He mixed my song exactly the way I wanted, and even made it sound better than I imagined. He was very patient and made several revisions for me very quickly, based on my request. I look forward to working with him on all my future projects.

    it was a real honor to work with Jack. he's worked with amongst the best in the industry and has a wealth of experience. his actions, skill set, and experience speaks for itself when he mixed my song.

    Jack was patient, diligent, and understanding the whole way thru. I'm still in disbelief knowing that I had the opportunity to work with him. I would recommend to Jack to anyone and would no doubt be willing to work with him again.

    When I saw Jack's previous credits I knew that he was the right person to mix the particular record I was working on, so I only contacted him and he didn't disappoint! I can't believe that through this platform you can work with serious pros like Jack and he did things to this mix that made it sound polished and professional with incredible separation between the instruments/parts.

    It only needed an easy tweak for a revision and it was done and he provided multiple mix types for my needs.

    The quality of my project went up significantly after Jack's mixing technique was applied. He has great ears, extremely attentive to frequency detail and was making me feel 100% ok with sharing my work with him. He was positive, responsive, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with Jack on many more projects to come!

    It has been an honor to have the opportunity to work with Jack. The music I have been working on of late there are only a few engineers around that truly understand Soul Music's entire history; have been a part of it themselves; have the ear for it and the ability to know what is needed.

    I am very thankful that I met Jack on this plattform because he truly unterstands how to mix a timelesss mix. Nowadays mixing engineers mix their tracks very sqashed but Jack is from the old school and he knows how to mix songs to make them feel alive. I will come back to him sooner than later for sure!

    Jack is DOPE. He just mixed a behemoth of a song for me.
    His work is totally pro, and he was super patient with me. I had lots of specific asks that he deftly addressed. Even during these crazy times, he was available, quick and easy to work with. Would highly recommend.

    Great empathy to my demo mix. He understood immediately what I believe is important for the mix. Warm but exact and full sound, no "clinks" at all. Fast, uncomplicated and effcient communication, very friendly.
