Kieran Burton

Producer, Mixing & Mastering

Kieran Burton on SoundBetter

I am a great person to work with if you are just starting out. I am willing to work closely and diligently with each of my clients in order to achieve their individual vision.

I have worked in Ableton for the past 5 years and LUNA for about a month. Within the last year I have expanded my knowledge to adequately mix and master my own music and music that is provided to me by clients. I am willing to go through many revisions to deliver the result requested by the client. My first foray into production was with electronic music, out of high school I quickly became obsessed with all types of electronic music. Some friends and I began producing events in our local community; this inspired me to pursue music further. I have taken all available music theory and piano courses at my nearest community college. In 2019 I was accepted into Berklee College of Music but denied because of the distance. I am currently pursuing a degree in Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts and I hope to use my education to become even more familiar with music and music technology.

Interview with Kieran Burton

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

  2. A: When writing a song, I believe I can bring a strong sense of theory and arrangement, I play the piano proficiently

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

  4. A: If I am producing something, I will usually establish a key and find a harmony that I am happy with. From there I will add other elements and begin to arrange the song, creating new parts with the elements that I have chosen for the particular piece. When I am mixing, I tend to bring everything in and label each track and the different parts of the song. Once that is complete, I will setup my mix buss and adjust parameters until I am happy with the sound. After that, I will dive into individual elements and buss together similar sounds or instruments. I will establish a good balance between elements individually and with their buss processing. Once I like how the mix is sounding, I will pull up my metering plugin and check the true peak level and LUFS level while also observing the stereo field and dynamic range. Once everything looks and sounds good I will bounce the mix and send it out to the client for review and revisions.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I work primarily in Ableton for production and arrangement, I have a lovely modular synthesizer that includes Moog's Mother-32 and a DFAM. The synthesizer also has modules from Mutable Instruments. I have a Yamaha MODX8 for all of my piano and keyboard sounds. This all runs alongside my Universal Audio Apollo x6 and Genelec 8030c's. My space is treated with Primacoustic sound treatment and sounds terrific!

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

  8. A: Tycho(Scott Hansen), Bonobo(Simon Green), Jacquire King, Damian Taylor and Fabrice DuPont. To name a few.

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

  10. A: Tracking and mixing, branching into mastering.
