Mixing Engineer and Producer

Michael Nolasco on SoundBetter

Engineer and producer currently working under multi-platinum, Grammy winning pop producer. Consistently working with major label artists on Colombia, Interscope, Warner Chapel, Capitol.

I’ve engineered records for Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Billy Idol, Papa Roach, Ricky Montgomery, Allison Ponthier, Parson James, Lexi Jayde, and many other great artists.

We usually have sessions every day, after which I edit and mix everything down for the producers and artists.

We hold incredibly high recording and engineering standards, so everything I get my hands on is edited and mixed cleanly and efficiently for pop precision. By being in a professional studio for 12+ hours a day, I've grown an in depth understanding of what pop productions should sound like.

I'm here to remotely mix and add production to projects in order to get them to the high-level industry standard they deserve!

Interview with Michael Nolasco

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: The latest releases by Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness. I feel like I came into my role as an engineer during that record.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I started working in a professional capacity in 2019. I was picked up as a runner and assistant, and learned as much as a could while trying to be as helpful and out of the way as possible. Since then, I've maintained the same "project first' attitude and have moved up in skill and responsibilities.

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

  6. A: If it's a session for mix, I start by cleaning up the session by labeling, grouping, and color coding the tracks. Then I edit everything from top down. After editing, I start mixing from the bottom up until things are sitting right. If I'm adding production, I get the mixed balanced and listen to what is missing, then add what's needed.

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

  8. A: Anyone and everyone that strives to be and reach the highest levels of their craft is inspiring. A few audio professionals I admire are Manny Marroquin, Steve Lilly-White, Flood, Trent Reznor, George Martin, Glyn Johns, Tony Maserati, Spike Stent, and many others I'm forgetting at the moment.

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

  10. A: I mostly engineer sessions. So everything from putting up microphones, to dialing in gear, to in-session pro tools organization, in-session editing, post session editing, recording, comping, and in-session and post session mixing. I've produced tracks for friends and clients, with a focus on making sure the sounds and songs created are what the artist is hearing in their heads.
