Producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist with over 7 years formal experience. Creating amazing music is my biggest passion and I can't wait to help bring your projects and ideas to life!
Hey, my name's Nick and I'm very excited to collaborate with you!
All my life, I've been creating and playing music. Growing up, I played saxophone for 10 years and was surrounded by music at home, constantly playing with keyboards, guitars, and drum machines. I formally began producing music while in college for myself and local artists. I cover a very wide variety of sounds and genres and can create exactly what you're looking for, whether it's a melodic hip-hop beat, an electric/pop instrumental, a backing track to set a scene, or a composition that tells a story.
More than anything, I take great pride in my work and settle for nothing less than the very best I can produce. When you start a project with me, it becomes my sole focus and passion until it's completed at or above your expectations.
Please feel free to check out my audio samples to get an idea of the various types of music I've produced -- if you like what you hear, I'd love to work with you and help bring your project to life!

Interview with Nick Fauster
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently, I'm working on production and songwriting for a couple local artists in the NYC area.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Anything I get to work on is not a "job", but a privilege -- you'll receive nothing less from me than the very best I have to offer, no matter the size or scope of your project.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Something I love doing is using very basic/stock sounds while coming up with ideas. If an idea sounds good with the most basic of sounds, it'll sound amazing when you substitute in high-quality sounds and add textures.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically like to build the overall structures and melodies of a project first. Once that's done, I hone in on the specific sounds, transitions, mixing, automations, etc.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I produce primarily in FL Studio, as it's the DAW I operate most quickly in and have been using for over 8 years. I use a suite of high quality, professional plugins for sound design and mixing/mastering, and my outboard gear is key to creating unique sounds and textures that help my music stand out. Check out my full list of gear if you're interested!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some of my biggest inspirations include Daft Punk, Justice, The Neptunes/N.E.R.D., Chad Hugo, Kanye West, Avicii, MGMT, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Joe Hisaishi, Nobuo Uematsu, Hans Zimmer, and all musicians who are dedicated to the art!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do ranges from creating entire songs from scratch to creating specific sections the client requests to help complete a track they have. Some examples include taking a concept/rough demo from a client and turning it into a full production, creating an entire beat from scratch for a client based on their desired sound/vibe, and creating an orchestral composition to set the theme for a short film.
