If you're reading this as a self-produced singer-songwriter who records music as a hobby (as I am and do), I can tell you you're in the right place. Sohta wears many hats effortlessly, from creative partner who can consult on artistic direction to technician who will make your track sound *seriously* good to being that professional presence who runs a tight ship and doesn't miss details. I'm already looking forward to sending him my next track!
It was a real pleasure working with Sohta. He is very professional with all the work he do, and very responsive to all the inquiries and questions I've had throughout. I would definitely work with him again in the future.
I had a fantastic experience working with Sohta. He mixed 11 tracks for me, and really took them and made them sing. He was easy to work with, flexible and accommodating of my requests, and delivered a great product. I'm so happy with the final result and hope I get to work with Sohta again in the future.
SOHTA is such a great engineer and person who will execute our requests, punctual, with imagination that will add magic to your music!
Awesome engineer with technique and great communication!
Sotha is amazing to work with.. Understood immediately what we needed and elevated the Sound Design.. Will keep working with him
Working with Sohta was such a smooth and easy process. He is thorough and flexible, helping us mix a single for an artist releasing their first single out. Communication was on point and felt very comfortable leaving him the freedom to mix the way he wanted to. His mix came back exactly the way we were looking for, and I hope to work with him again in the future.
One of the top producers on soundbetter, knows what you need. Took a while to get all details right ....although first mix already sounded very promising, but sohta kept going and knows what the song needs and will tell you when things are good enough for release.
Sohta was a pleasure to work with. He was was very patient and quickly understood anything I needed done for my track. I would definitely recommend!
Excellent work. Sohta, does not just do a great work on mixing and mastering your track. He takes the time to understand you and give you advice on the sound design, to ensure the best possible results.
Really recmended as it's not easy to find a sound engineer that gets the direction you want to take the track.
It was such a pleasure and definitely the best choice to have Sohta to master my music. Sohta really cared about my music and surely is a pro with quality skills and artistry. I would certainly work with him again. :) Highly recommend, you won't regret!
Great collaboration and great delivery.I'll work with Sohta again. Thanks!
Top notch sound with top notch service. Sohta cares about your vision and executes perfectly - highly recommended.
SOHTA was great! Really pulled the song together and got it nice and professional sounding. I gave him pretty rough elements but he made it all work and was super communicative along the way! Thanks S!
SOHTA is a thorough and passionate engineer, super communicative, and dedicated to getting your song sounding great. Great experience working with him. Highly recommend!
SOHTA is very professional, effective and a musician with heart. I am 150% satisfied with the work he has done for me. I can only warmly recommend SOHTA.
Sohta is simply great! He's super professional, delivers on time, it's very open to feedback. It's a smooth ride and always a great project with tons of collaboration. He's always sharing great ideas that go beyond the original vision you had and they always make the song better. I'm glad we mixed this song with him!
Working with Sohta was a real pleasure. He was precise and professional throughout the process and really brought my mix to life. I was very happy with the final product. Would highly recommend working with him!
Sohta was the first person I worked with on soundbetter. I was unsure about this platform in general but he put those feelings to rest. Sohta listened to my demo and suggested that I needed a bigger beat. I sent over my vocal and instrument tracks and he sent back a song that I totally vibed with and was proud to release.
Sohta has just mastered our first single from our upcoming album. Working with him was great! He did a very good job, he cares a lot about sound quality and is patient and easy to work with. Try him!
I have been working with Sohta for a few years now. He always is very communicative and thorough with his mixes. He is very accurate and quick with producing great work. I would definitely recommend him for your projects!
Interview with SOHTA
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I glue sounds. This is a really tough question. Such a cliché but I'd say "What song calls for". Clarity and isolation of instruments, while maintaining connection between them. Heavy and tight bottom, with dense but clear mid range.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Recently moved to fully ITB set up, centered around Slate Raven MTi. ProTools HD 12 as my main tool, but I also work with Logic, Ableton Live, and Digital Performer. Plug-ins I use are UAD, Waves, McDSP, SlateDigital, Softube, etc., etc. Time to time, I go back to analog summing but Waves NLS and SlateDigital VCC serves the purpose for now.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop 80%, both acoustic and electric. (Sub-genre within the category "Pop" is so wide that I work with lots different, tho…)
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Dense mix with clarity. I believe these two completely opposite elements can co-exist.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Manny Marroquin, his dense sounds always surprise me and inspire me.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start by listening to the demo/producer's mix everywhere, in my car, in the city walking around on iPhone, etc. That will give me the basic idea of what the song is about, so I get the vibe of the song. Then I put the ProTools session together, preview each tracks/stems, fine tune each of those. The most fun part starts there, a pure artistic process to play with balances, and draw automation to enhance the dynamics of the song. Once the mix is 95% completed, I send the mp3 to the client to evaluate for as long as you want in different environment. We go through revision processes until you are fully satisfied!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: 80% of my daily work is mixing, 10% mastering and 10% producing.
