Here to make your songs come to life the way you've always dreamed! I'd love to make your songs shine and streaming/vinyl ready.
I work with my clients to ensure I clearly understand their vision for their tracks/albums. I provide detailed documents when obtaining the files so the files are the best quality possible objectively. I have various plugins/equipment that allows me to understand the tracks sonically and through dynamics so they sound amazing!

Interview with Isaac Coston
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I work hard to make your songs fit your vision
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Timeframe, which typically depends on how the final mix sounds. Sometimes I need to push back on client's mixes in order to make the best master possible, so occasionally the project takes longer than expected.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Why do you do what you do? What personality do you want for your songs?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Get excited! Instead of using AI or youtube tutorials on mastering, we get to work together to make the song sound how you dreamed it would!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: When I worked with the Biblical Mind podcast. I had the opportunity to make a song a week for them, so I constantly was communicating with them to ensure the songs I made were of top quality and songs that they wanted, not just songs I wanted to make.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ears are extremely sensitive so they catch things most people wouldn't recognize!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently churning out beats for fun, love getting the reps in!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet, but once I find great people I'll be sure to update!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both have great benefits and downsides, so it's not about the gear, it's about your vision for whatever it is you are doing!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to create for a living!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That only gifted people can make music, I've spent a lot of time honing my craft. Practice is no joke.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Guitar amp, my Fender 66, my 2 KRK monitors, and my laptop, I can make a lot of beats with that equipment!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been playing guitar for 10 years, piano for 15, and music production for 2 years. I've been constantly working on honing my craft for a while and I'm glad I finally found a platform to utilize these skills!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like catchy melodies, so I like to fit my personal songs around that.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Daft Punk! Though I know they recently retired so I'm patiently waiting for a reunion.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Have a vision for your song, if you don't know where you're going, you're gonna get lost. I found that out the hard way.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Lofi/hiphop and rock.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity, catchy hooks, and the ability to quickly understand a genre and make songs similar to that style.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Most importantly, I listen to clients. I want to make music for THEM, not just for fun. I want to make music for my client's taste and vision, so the process mainly consists of listening to reference songs and paying close attention to the client's descriptors so I can understand how they work. Then I send some samples, and the client picks which one they'd like to have. I then finish that sample and turn it into a fully-fledged song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have 2 KRK 7" studio monitors, a digital keyboard, a midi keyboard, and a Shure sm57 for recording through my fender guitar amp. I have a Fender 66 guitar with telecaster single-coil pickups and one humbucker, so I can get a variety of sounds very quickly!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Daft Punk, Mateus Asato, and Weezer, kind of a weird list but I like the combination of digital beats with catchy guitar hooks!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I provide either full custom instrumentals for clients or custom guitar loops, particularly in the lofi/hiphop style.
