Professional and client-orientated Song Mixing to get your Songs to sound the way you want them to! I am an Indie-Rock guitarist. I mix the songs for my own band and want to give back what I've learned.
I am the guitarist for an Indie-Rock Band called "The Roofs". I mixed and mastered our Songs and managed to get us on a Spotify Playlist.
I am currently watching and learning in the Studio of a renowned Mixing engineer in my hometown Vienna. He mixed for acts like: Bilderbuch, Wanda, Cari Cari,...
In the last weeks I learned a lot and feel comfortable enough to mix the songs of other bands, who don't have the experience yet.
I typically need one week for the rough mix and after the Song is nearly at the desired sound, it takes 1-2 days to finish it. During the process I like to communicate with the artist via zoom, to make sure the mix is going in the right direction. If the mix is taking longer than expected, I will take the time needed, to make sure you are 100% happy.
As I am just starting out, I try to keep my prices as low as possible and give up and coming artists the possibility to sound professional.
Feel free to send me a message if you like to get in touch!
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Interview with Oscar Böhm
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: "White Lies" - The Roofs. It's my second mix/master and it already got us on a Spotify curated Playlist. It encouraged me to keep going and pursue mixing professionally!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I'm working on a single and an EP for "The Roofs" which I almost finished
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet, but I'm sure it changes after a while on the platform
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog! It's more about the workflow than the sound for me. Unfortunately at the moment I heavily rely on plug-ins because of the cost of analog gear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I don't stop until you feel like I did your song justice
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The freedom. Sometimes you need to remember that there is no right or wrong. My job is to find the sound that the song needs and whether it's disgusting or beautiful depends on the vision of the track.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: If you message me, you're the first one to do so! Feel free to ask anything that is unclear!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Mixing a song is very artistic. There are millions of different options to approaching a mix. It is not only making something sound good together, but making something sound like you!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have a reference, How does your release plan look like, Do you have any specific wishes?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have a basic vision and understand that the first mix might take longer than expected. I takes time to get to know each other as individuals and artists and find the right sound for you. Sometimes it's very different from what you've expected
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: my acoustic guitar, my laptop, my piano, a microphone, a vocal teacher
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I founded our band "The Roofs" in late 2017. We experimented with many different mixing engineers in our hometown vienna but none of them worked out for us. I decided to buy logic pro and start mixing myself. The second song I mixed got us on a spotify playlist, so I got confident in my skills and my progress. As of now I am starting my journey as a professional mixer. I feel glad for anybody who takes their project to me!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: open minded and not afraid to try something that should not sound good together, but does!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I don't know yet. I think it highly depends on the chemistry between the artist and the mixing engineer/Producer. I like to work with artists that keep an open mind and like experimenting with different sounds.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to not get intimidated by all the technicalities and listen with your ears and not your eyes

A: Indie-Rock, Rock, Pop
