Fast, affordable, Pro Masters! I was a bedroom producer for 6 years and I know firsthand the grind of getting things done on a budget. I want to make your track sound professional at a price you can afford. Being a producer myself, I take extra care in your masters, knowing that you have put your heart and soul into your songs. I can compensate for errors you might have in your mix, and get that loud clear sound you are looking for.

On my sample song I co-wrote it, produced it, mixed it and mastered it.

  6. Review by Brolin P.

    I am delighted with the mastering job Arlo Beats did on my song "Groovin Alone"! Throughout the process, he was highly responsive and delivered the final master in a timely manner. The result was a powerful and crisp master that truly elevated the track to the next level. Arlo's attention to detail and ability to enhance the mix's intended sound was impressive. I highly recommend Arlo Beats to anyone looking for a skilled and professional mastering engineer.

  7. Review by Brolin P.

    Arlo Beats did an amazing job mastering my song "Affected By Your Love"! The master was hard hitting and impactful, but without being overly squashed or compressed. Arlo was very responsive throughout the process, and had a great turnaround time on the master. Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of his work. The master really took the track to the next level, making it sound just like we intended with the mix, but louder and clearer. I would highly recommend him for any project!

    Dillon is a super talented producer, mix engineer, sound designer and everything in between! I once sent him a song to be produced and he absolutely nailed it within 2-3 days. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a unique and high quality sound.

    Arlo is one of the most creative, kind, and thorough producers I've ever worked with. He sees music and the world around him through a beautiful lens that is unlike any other person I know, and you can HEAR that in his work. Arlo listens and does everything he can to get your project sounding how you want it to. I am so grateful to get to work with him.

Interview with Arlo Beats Mastering

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

  2. A: Recently I produced a song for Viacom, which is a company associated with Universal Pictures. They reached out to me cuz they needed a Deep Club Dance track for their catalog. It ended up being used on Jersey Shore! I wrote, produced, sang on it, mixed and mastered it all myself

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am Mastering for several artists that I love, including Emilia Ali, Emi Grace, Nolä, and more. I co write, produce, and play guitar for Emi Grace. I am also working on my artist project, Arlo. For my artists project, I make mainly House/EDM similar to Tiesto, Zedd, and Disclosure.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I promise that I will do everything I can to help you get the sound you have in your head.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: I love helping people get the sound they have in their head, out into the world. It's really rewarding when an artist is about to put out a song and they are genuinely excited about the Master.

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: What daw do you use? Ableton. How quickly can you get my master done? 24-48hrs How fast can you produce a song done from start to finish? 1-3 days What are your favorite styles? Mastering: All. Producing: Pop/EDM

  11. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  12. A: I'd say the biggest misconception about mastering is that we put the same chain on every song. I do something different every time I master a song to bring out what the song needs. It depends on the recording, the room it was mixed in, etc.

  13. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  14. A: I always ask for a mix and master reference - what song would you like this to sound like?

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: Make sure you have a clearly recorded vocal. With a good vocal, anything is possible.

  17. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  18. A: My L'arrivée acoustic guitar, My trumpet, a Conga Drum, A piano, A steel drum

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

  20. A: I started producing and mixing when I was 17, I am now 24. I went to Berklee School of Music in Boston and studied music production and mixing for 4 years. I moved to LA 2 years ago and I have been mixing and mastering for people here, in addition to collaborating with many LA based singers and writers.

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: With mastering, I work mostly with DIY musicians. This looks like Indie Pop, Indie Electronic, Singer songwriter, Indie Rock, and Alternative. As a producer, I usually work on Pop/EDM/Dance music. I love Diplo, Louis the Child, Kygo, Calvin Harris.

  23. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  24. A: Yes, Sam Steele is a peer of mine, he is a great producer and mixing engineer.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Analog, because there's a richness that cannot be replicated on a computer. I used digital synthesizers for 5 years (Serum) and just recently started using analog synths. My mind was blown. Quality of a simple sine wav sounds amazing. I now own a Korg and a Roland synth.

  27. Q: How would you describe your style?

  28. A: Dynamic, Organic Dynamic because I love tracks that change in energy throughout. Organic, because I love natural sounds and live instruments like the guitar, piano, flute, trumpet and vocals. I believe every track should have vocals!

  29. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  30. A: MØ - she has always been a favorite singer of mine. I have remixed a few of her songs for fun and it is so much fun - it would be amazing to get to write with her.

  31. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  32. A: Simple is best. A good mix has a few very good elements, not lots of mediocre elements. If it's too crowded, then nothing stands out as special. Make every sound count.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My ear is my strongest asset. In a mastering context, I can hear within 5 seconds what needs to be done to make it a radio ready track. In a production context, I can hear chords and create arrangements very quickly.

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

  36. A: I bring the final, polished sound to your track. I will bring out that final 10% to turn the sound you have in our head into a reality. I have a trained ear and can help you achieve that sound.

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

  38. A: I typically listen to the mixed track once or twice all the way through, taking notes on what I hear. Then I may pull up an eq and check a few specific frequencies that need editing, and take those down. Next, I send these notes to the client. We may go back and forth a couple times until we achieve a final mix that is balanced and ready to master. Then I will master the track. I start with Eq, then compression, then go to limiting. In some cases, I add harmonic saturation before compression.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I am mixing on Focal 6.5 inch monitors. I have a Neumann u87 and an Apollo twin interface. I have 10 acoustic panels in my room, two mega bass traps, and tons of sound foam so that my room is primed for Mastering. I have SonarWorks software running to ensure a flat response. I have lots of VST mixing plugins, such as the Universal Audio API 2500 compressor, CLA 2A Compressor, EMT plate reverb, etc. I also have a couple analog synthesizers. I also have an American Stratocaster Pro HSS.

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

  42. A: I love Disclosure, and the way they are doing modern dance music with a retro flare. I take a lot of influence from old jazz and 70s Disco, so I love the way Disclosure uses those as influences. Disclosure also writes, produces, and mixes their own tracks which is something I do as well.

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

  44. A: Mastering! Most of my clients come to me with a final mix. I help them address the final touches that need to make that mix shine as best it can, and then I Master their track so that it's release-ready.
