Ryan Hinkle on SoundBetter

I have produced, engineered, and mixed for major label and local artists from multiple commercial studios as well as from my home studio. Session highlights include Justin Bieber, Godsmack, and Bastille. I graduated from Berklee (Production and Engineering) and love diverse genres- Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Dance, Celtic, Folk, Metal. Let's create!

With over 15 years of experience playing sax, piano, viola and programming, I've always had a passion for music. I have been fortunate enough to mix, produce, and record with talented artists from most genres. My professional roles have included Manager/Engineer/Producer at Sanctum Sound, and Herd Studio, MIDI Author with Accel Studios for the game Rockband, Engineer at The Bridge Sound and Stage, and Co-Owner of Hink Creations. My strengths include vocal editing/tuning, mix and production. I have a BA from Berklee College of Music in Production and Engineering and I make a pretty good breakfast. When I'm not working on music, I'm outside walking around Boston.

    Hink brings ideas to life. Every session spent with Ryan has not only been a great time, but has brought each song or project to the next level. Every time I leave the studio I immediately cant wait to get back in!

    Ryan is the most talented engineer I have ever worked with, hands down. He always transforms the ideas I have in my head as to how I’d like my music to sound exactly the way I imagine it and goes above and beyond doing so. He is a GENIUS in the studio.

He makes me feel so comfortable and at ease when I record and that is something I definitely appreciate. I’ve never once questioned his work ability during our sessions; He is a musical genius! I definitely plan on sticking with him as long as I can!

    Ryan is in all around amazing PRODUCER! I have two songs coming out with him soon that he helped me produce. He brings the songs energy to another level. His knowledge in navigating different recording softwares is the best I have seen. He is without a doubt one of the best producers in the game. I am extremely excited to release the tracks that I have worked on with him and I’m very confident that they will be two of my most successful songs. I highly recommend working with him he’s a homey for sure and will help bring your music to the next level!

    Ryan is the best engineer I have worked with. Not only does he create a judgment free environment, but his creative and unique ideas are inspiring and motivating. He gives great feedback and really understood the sound I wanted to create. He’s hilarious and gets shit DONE!!!

    Ryan has been an absolute pleasure to work with since we met three years ago. He has been involved in my development as an artist from the get-go and has touched every song or project in some way - whether via vocal mix/recording, production, or instrument tracking. He is by far the most reliable engineer that I've worked with and always goes above and beyond to give his thoughts and feedback, even when you're not "on the clock." A true professional that I always recommend to my peers and that I trust with everything. Hard to find these days and would recommend to anyone.

    For more than a decade, Ryan has exhibited uninhibited magnificence as my number one and only engineer. And that goes for any type of audio frequencies that frequent the ear. See, people make moves, but Ryan makes them faster. For beat’s sake, he knows how to edit a take at the time you make a mistake. You’ll thank him for schooling you on musical knowledge he drops — after agreeing with what he politely suggests you do. Typing all of this right now is getting me hype for upcoming sessions. I’m telling you; if you are ready to have your sound sound profound, you have found the pro. Think Hink!

    I've been lucky enough to work with Ryan on a number of projects over the years.
    It's nice to know there's a reliable and talented engineer/producer so close by.
    He's a master at bring your project to life, and when necessary, knows how to pull in all the right people to see it through.
    Looking forward to the next one!

    Ryan is one of the most attentive engineers I know and his sensibilities for different genres of music are extremely versatile. No matter which project or genre, his work ethic is excellent and the attention to detail is always present. Also, his studio is very welcoming and has professional gear that can take on any project.

    In addition to his technical/creative abilities, the easygoing vibe that Ryan has makes him a pleasure to work with. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone trying to achieve an industry standard product with someone who will make the process a breeze!

    Ryan is absolutely, hands down, one of THE BEST engineers I've EVER had the pleasure of working with & I've worked with many great ones dating back over 30 years in the music business. A total professional in every sense of the word, he creates a focused yet relaxed & creative atmosphere which is custom tailored to each individual artist. The recordings I've completed with him are some of the very best of my career and the product he delivers is second to none.
