Nick Semeraro on SoundBetter

Looking to bring life to your music! Mobile studio can come to you to record! Great for laying down tracks in a comfortable location.

Let's take great tracks and turn them into great mixes!!

I have always had a passion for helping people make music. I believe everyone's work should be taken seriously and given a chance to be heard!

I also love to work with single Mic recording techniques to get that 1950's feel.

I love to record full band in a live play through of songs, to capture the raw emotion that you get well playing in a group, But I also enjoy laying down single tracks and overdubbing.

Interview with Nick Semeraro

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

  2. A: Personal projects, and I am working with the church worship team on some recording and mixing.

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

  4. A: I do not know him personally, but he has inspired me to start this profile, and I have followed his work for several years now, Graham Cochrane

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Tough question. Both have their place in the world. Analog gives you way more forgiveness in the headroom on the tracks, but Digital minimizes the noise. But with digital, we still chase the analog sound a little bit.

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

  8. A: I will do my best to capture the essence of what you are going for in your music.

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

  10. A: The biggest misconception that people have about Mixing Engineers is that you can make magic where there is no magic. A great mix starts with great tracks and great material. If that foundation is not there, you can only do so much in the mixing process.

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

  12. A: Computer Audio Interface Headphones Guitar Keyboard

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: My style is all over the place. I have found appreciation in all kinds of music. I grew up playing classical music, well training on the piano, and started to fall in love with Rock, Metal, Punk. As I got older, I have circled back to classical, and have found that all music that is an expression of the artists emotion is amazing!

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

  16. A: I really enjoy working with my church worship team. So, any band or group or person that has a good heart, and is looking to make great music, I would love to work with them!

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

  18. A: Keep it simple - over complicating your mix can result in a muddy mix. There can always be room to add on, and make it bigger, but if you start simple, you have less of a chance of tripping over yourself in the long run.

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

  20. A: Indie rock, Singer Songwriter, Church Worship Teams, rock bands, cover bands.

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

  22. A: For mixing I like to review the raw tracks, set a static level, and start making magic after that. Before sending out the final mix, I like to wait a day, and listen to it again after my ears have readjusted to make sure everything sounds as good as it can.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Small home studio, but very effective.
