    I've worked with a lot of different engineers over the years, and so far, I've met none better than Lee. Of course, the sound quality is professional and top-notch. However, I was most impressed by Lee's ability to understand the vision of how things should sound and his patience to see it through even with multiple rounds of detailed critique. Looking forward to what's ahead!

    Lee is a remarkably talented composer, he was hugely understanding and receptive of my vision when he created a track for my film. Always making sure that I was happy with the sound and if there were further amendments he could do to better it. The turn around was fast and didn’t sacrifice at all on quality, I couldn’t recommend another artist more. He is professional, has an extensive knowledge around sound creation and very reasonably priced for the product received. Thanks so much Lee!

    Lee worked with me to produce a song I had written for my wedding day so it was really important to me that it sounded perfect! Starting with only piano and vocal Lee brought my music to life by adding bass and percussion (which he played himself) and tweaking my vocals to produce a really fantastic finished piece. He was a pleasure to work with and was always very enthusiastic and meticulous.

Interview with Lee Avant Studios

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

  2. A: I have worked with Sefi Carmel and can tell you that he is an excellent film composer. And Jonny Cork who is an amazing House Producer as well as a talented Sound Designer!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both.. I feel that both sides have Pros and Cons and we should accept both as the top forms of recording Audio nowadays.

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

  6. A: I promise that all my customers leave happy and with no regrets!

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

  8. A: 'How do I know when its ready to mix' I always tell people that they should be 100% happy with their recording before submitting it for a mix. Some things such as source recordings cannot be fixed (to an extent) in mix and so should be dealt with before handing over to me!

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

  10. A: How involved would you like to be? Are there any songs which you draw inspiration for your track/album?

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

  12. A: Please feel free to be as honest as possible! I am a friendly guy and will help you get what you want even if you are not sure how to describe it in 'audio pro' terminology.

  13. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  14. A: My Macbook, my Yam monitors, an SM57, Midi Keyboard and probably some kind of water container.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: I like to describe my style as extreme. I like songs to express the extremes of their respective styles and emotions. That applies to all genres from RnB to Metal!!

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I would love to work with Tom Morello, as he is one of my favourite musicians. He also is one of the most innovative guitarists of all time and manages to get some insane sounds from the most basic setups. Most of them sounding like anything but a guitar.

  19. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  20. A: Electronic and Hip Hop mainly. The occasional Rock song too!

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

  22. A: I recently worked on a song that was used on a very successful Underwear advertisement campaign. It was a delight hearing my song on TV every now and again, even If I was sick of hearing it!

  23. Q: What's your typical work process?

  24. A: I like to communicate a plan thoroughly with the client before even starting a mix. I feel this makes everything run much smoother. Walking people through a mix also helps them, in my opinion, understand the process and makes them feel less alienated.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: Home based Studio, Self built from scratch complete with Spacious live room and Control/Mixing area.

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

  28. A: I like building relationships, and seeing peoples success after working with me.

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

  30. A: Producers enjoy what we do, that doesn't mean we want to do it for free

  31. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  32. A: I have been working my craft for 6 years now, and have been lucky enough to work with some of the biggest names in the industry and I am only getting started!

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I think my strongest skill is being able to translate a clients idea, and understand them. I feel a human touch can work wonders in the studio.

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

  36. A: I can give your song a real edge when it comes up against other songs in a similar genre. Whether that is taking an idea in the song and bringing to the forefront or simply emphasising different aspects off the song.

  37. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  38. A: Tom Morello, Trent reznor, Flume, Liam Howlett to name a few!

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

  40. A: FKA twigs' next LP

  41. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  42. A: EQ... Less is more

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I mostly produce for hip hop, electronic or rock artists. Often I like to merge these genres together.
