Mingus Sol Parker on SoundBetter

Session Guitarist, Engineer, Mixer and Audio Editor dedicated to doing it right!

I have been playing fretted instruments and mastering my craft for a little over 10 years. I have a large collection of instruments and a great recording setup to cover any sonic possibility/ tone requested. I listen to every genre and I'm confident I'll be able to deliver what you're looking for. I'm also an experienced engineer currently working in a studio in London and love to deliver mixed stems, aswell as dry/ unprocessed files to save my clients some time. My typical turnaround time is 24 hours, but I can deliver recordings on the same day for the most part.

My signal chain consists of some of the top amplifiers, guitars, preamps and microphones in the industry. I use a variety of gear for different styles of music. I will work with you until you are 100% happy with the result. I work remotely but can assure you a fluent communication and fast turnaround time.

Every project is different, so don't hesitate to shoot me a message and we'll discuss everything I can bring to your track!

I'm also able to help create parts (riffing over a tune, full arrangements, background parts, etc.).

Interview with Mingus Sol Parker

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

  2. A: Mostly session playing and engineering remotely and in person.

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

  4. A: I'm fairly new to Soundbetter but I can't wait to meet new people!

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: The tone and character of analog is superior to me, however I've heard great digital mixes so I guess it depends on the skill of the user!

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

  8. A: My promise is the client will receive what they want every single time, without a doubt. And I wont stop working on the project until they are satisfied.

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

  10. A: A big misconception is that session players don't take as much care in the recording/mixing process. This is something that's very important to me.

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

  12. A: I always ask the client to send me adjectives to describe what they need. Sometimes people know what they want but dont know how to put it into words, so that's a great way to catch the vibe from them.

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

  14. A: An original Torres guitar, A cassette recorder, A pair of Neumann km54s and my Macbook. That's the dream.

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

I currently have a U47, AEA R88 and a 60s Reslo setup 24/7 running into my UAD twin-finity tube preamp. I love this setup because I can make quick sketches of ideas very quickly and makes my workflow super efficient.

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