DeJuan Cross on SoundBetter

Award-Winning mixing engineer and Multi-Grammy nominated producer that can help you bring your vision to life. My music has been featured in video games as recently as EA Madden 24, on television and commercials. Let me enhance your music with what many have called "The Cross Sauce".

I am DeJuan Cross, a record producer, audio engineer, songwriter, arranger, and DJ. I have amassed platinum and gold selling records, millions in streams, billboard #1 chart placement, and film & television credits, while working with top talent in the entertainment industry. I am an US Navy veteran with certifications in System Administration and Information Security, and have a love for all things tech and music alike. I am also a 3-Time Gold W3 podcast winner so I feel confident that I can help guide whatever audio needs you may have. With being a good producer and engineer you need to have expert listening skills so that you can not only hear, but understand and visualize what each artist is painting with words and sound. I take pride in my craft and love to teach, learn, and really just nerd out with my equipment adding flavor to each session whether it be small or large amounts.

I reside in Atlanta Ga, after relocating back here during the pandemic for Los Angeles. I try to be fair and am open to working with different budgets depending on the situation.

Thank You for considering me!

  14. A: Knowledge of how a song feels in context to its instrumentation and lyrics and also knowing when the song is done.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I have a hybrid mix system, where I start the mix in Pro Tools HD. I am using an Antelope Orion[audio interface], then to a 500 series rack mount where I have outboard compressors and Eq's, routed into a SSL six mixer. From the SSL Bus compressor the audio goes through a Burl ADC B2 Bomber[converter] then to a RME ADI Pro-FS2 [converter/interface]. I am monitoring through a pair of Yamaha NS-10's, Dynaudio LYD48's, and a single Avantone mix cube. I also have synth keyboards and drum machines for production and many plugins to aid in enhancing audio.

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

  26. A: I listen to the song maybe 5-7 times first and understand what the artist is presenting then I identify the strong and weak points of the song and try to make the weak parts better. I reference other songs that are close in style so I can make sure the levels are accurate and then I begin to stem the audio through my mixer so I can level the song. I compress and eq as needed then I add the sweet stuff like reverb and harmonizers to make the records glue together sonically.

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

  28. A: I am inspired by great engineers Bruce Swedien, Dr. Dre, Tony Maserati, and great Producers like Quincy Jones.
