Jordan McLeod on SoundBetter

Professional and affordable mixing, mastering, and production for independent artists.

Jordan McLeod is a music producer, mixer, and mastering engineer. He began by DJing and producing in his bedroom which led to the formation of EDM duo Kids Want Techno. Their music was streamed millions of times around the world and performed at gigs with EDC, The Chainsmokers, Matoma, and more.

Music eventually took Jordan to LA where he attended Icon Collective College of Music. While at school, he began working at The Fab Factory music studio and gained invaluable hands-on experience. As a dream come true, he frequently sat in with legendary Grammy winning mix engineer Dave Pensado to learn everything he could over the course of his time at the studio.

Currently, Jordan freelances while also working at Osiris Studio with 5x Grammy winning mastering engineer Michael Graves. He spends his time shadowing Michael, fine tuning his ears and learning the ins and outs of the mastering process.

In his free time, Jordan writes and produces music for his own project Years of Youth.

Jordan brings knowledge of production and songwriting into the mixing and mastering process; offering a more creative perspective. His decision making focuses on the feeling and emotions of a song, breathing more life into the final version.

    Another song mixed and mastered by Jordan, nailing every request along with bringing attention to details that I overlooked. Having his ears on your track will give it a certain life you didn’t know it was capable of! Im so pleased, looking forward to the next one ;)

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Jordan! Not only did he do an outstanding job mixing and mastering my project, but he also contributed creative details and nuances that i would have otherwise overlooked. He wasn’t just a second set of ears, but a second brain for me when mine was at capacity! Jordan 100% understood my vision, and was so receptive and patient with me when I was curious to hear something a couple different ways. I can’t wait to get my other projects in his hands!

    Such a joy and brilliant engineer to do our latest single with! Jordan has an incredible ear, super responsive and creative with how to achieve the intense, complex feeling of the track we were going for. He is also just a sweet, kind and encouraging person to interact with through the entire process and I'm looking forward to all of the bright beautiful things in store for this track, for Jordan's own work and all of the awesome projects he works on!!!

    absolutely incredible! it's always such a pleasure working with Jordan, his bio, "record finisher" holds beyond true. if you ever need something looked at, mixed, mastered, or just help with he gives back tenfold. i've been working with him on a handful of my previous records and it's always stellar. He even reached out to me to be apart of his own upcoming project. all around amazing work.

    Jordan's worth every penny and more.

    Not only does he go above and beyond on a project but he is also willing to help you improve your work. He's once again shown to be someone worth any price.

    Amazing mixes from a professional and friendly guy. I had 5 songs mixed and the effort he put into each one really made them come to life. Always friendly and I enjoyed chatting with him. Couldn't ask for any better!

Interview with Jordan McLeod

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

  2. A: Kevin Parker. He can write, play, sing, produce, mix, and perform at such a high level.

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

  4. A: Musicians: Tame Impala, M83, Daft Punk, The xx Engineers: Dave Pensado, Serb Ghenea, Josh Gudwin, Tom Norris

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

  6. A: I'm not familiar with anyone else on SoundBetter.

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

  8. A: Is mastering included in the price of mixing? Yes.

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

  10. A: When it comes to mixing, I like to start with the very basics: setting faders levels and doing basic EQ and compression to build the foundation of the mix. From there I begin to work the vocals, then will add elements back in starting with the drums and building up from there.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: My home studio set up consist of Yamaha MSP5 studio monitors, an UAD Apollo Twin Quad, a Custom Hackintosh with Pro Tools 12, Logic X, and Ableton 10. Currently, I work completely in the box with top of the line plugins such as UAD, iZotope, and Soundtoys.

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

  14. A: I have been working with an artist called LEADR for over a year and the music is finally started to be released. He is an incredible singer, songwriter, and producer and I am so happy to have been apart of it. I helped produce, record vocals, and mix a few of the songs that are coming.

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

  16. A: Know what you are looking, what you expect the final product to sound like. Let me know what you like so far, and what you think needs more improvement. Be as detailed as possible to help me do the best job that I can do.

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

  18. A: I have been doing this for about 7 years now. I started out DJing when I was in high school and soon started to create my own music. I moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2018 to attend a year long music production school and graduated at the end of the year. I worked at The Fab Factory learning from the great mixing engineer Dave Pensado for almost 2 years. I now freelance engineer while continuing to work on my own personal artist project that I hope will be ready to release near the end of 2020.

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

  20. A: Don't let your ego second guess creative decisions, feel the music and use that for direction.

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

  22. A: A creative ear that can show you a whole new perspective on your song. If that's not what you are looking for, I will execute your rough mix to perfection just the way you imagined it.

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

  24. A: MacBook Pro, Apollo Twin, Stratocaster, MIDI Keyboard, Microphone

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

  26. A: EDM, Pop & Indie Electronic

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

  28. A: Do you have a reference track? What don't you like about the track? How do you imagine the final version to sound? Are you open to me making creative changes that I feel might be best for the track?

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

  30. A: My own solo project.

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

  32. A: That I do not know what I am doing.

  33. Q: How would you describe your style?

  34. A: Indietronica

  35. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  36. A: It has to be a mix of both. Mixing in the box is a lot easier and efficient, however, there is not denying the warmth and color that analog can provide which is why summing though gear is a great way to keep it alive.

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

  38. A: Mixing and Producing

  39. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  40. A: Being a hybrid of producer and engineer, crossing two different sets of skills in a way that delivers a unique final product.

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

  42. A: To deliver a product that you will be thrilled about.

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