Producing Loud Genres

Raventhief Soundworks on SoundBetter

Specializing in loudness, punch and bass while having a ballanced and bright mix. Help with arrangements and composition can also be discussed.

I mix any subgenre of rock and metal and specialize in modern metalcore, focusing on loudness, bass, rhythm and atmospherics/melodics.

Can make changes based on feedback on the fly and have a good conversation about what you want your songs to sound like both artistically and production-wise.

There are many unorthodox mixing techniques I can apply to make your songs have a unique clean sound, but I focus mostly on making music sound as analog as possible with saturation techniques and old-school methods used by the biggest studios.

Interview with Raventhief Soundworks

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

  2. A: I was part of a remix contest hosted by one of my favorite EDM artists and was one of the winners, I remixed the song replicating some of the original sounds by ear.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both, one can't live without the other nowadays. I've heard some remasters that are done digitally that sound too pristine to be metal which is terrible, and I've heard some albums with terrible peaks in sound which can only be fixed digitally
