    Thanks again Samuel! Such a great job. Samuel can find the right focus by editing and also remixing a little our song. The song is now just as good as it can be.

  26. A: Most commonly mixing a pop/rap/alternative song

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

  28. A: First, If they have a reference song, or otherwise strong opinion about the mixing. Then I´ll try to implement that vision. How much tuning they want to vocals etc.. auto tune or Melodyne or both

  36. A: I am doing constantly production and mixing to local artist and here at Soundbetter.

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

  40. A: That mixing will make poor quality tracks sound great, you can do some extreme rescue Eq but it will not sound like Lady Gaga..:)

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

  44. A: Adele, the reason is obvious. She is just amazing singer.
