Michał Nowak on SoundBetter

I'm new here. Let's mix some audio!

I am a sound engineer with experience in various fields. I worked in a live sound, theater, radio and recording studio. Currently, I focus on TV sound, where I produce live programmes or record and do post-production.

I'm proficient with EBU loudness standards.
I'm used to remote (and very fast) workflow used in radio and TV production.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Michał Nowak

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

  2. A: Few years ago I was mixing audio for Europe Conference League football match live in 5.1.

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

  4. A: Preparing to record some guitars. I love tube amplifiers. Both, as a guitar amp or microphone preamp.

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

  6. A: not yet.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both, but if I had to chose one - digital, because it gives many possibilities.

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

  10. A: I will do my best with your song. I sign final product with my name, the same as you.

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

  12. A: I like the most coming back to old recordings. They are the same as they were years ago! Exciting :)

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

  14. A: Yes, I really need ".wav" file. ".mp3" won't work.

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

  16. A: The biggest misconception is thinking I can made a miracle. Song will be great if tracks are recorded great. Instruments should be tuned, played in time.. :)

  18. A: What are they going to do with final material (loudness standards). Which file format they need.

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

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