A few months back the band Microwave hit us up about getting help finding someone to master their new record. We got test masters from four different engineers so the band could hear different approaches of how a few mastering engineers would craft their mixes. After they heard their options they let us know which ones they liked and we connected them with John Naclerio who’s been making awesome tracks with acts like Brand New, My Chemical Romance, Knuckle Puck and more. They were able to make an informed decision that made their record better at an affordable rate. Blending a sound of post-hardcore, and strong alternative pop hooks, we think what they came up with is one of the best record of the year. Check it out in the player above as well as our podcast with the band.

A few months back the band The Wild Waiting hit us up about getting help mixing their new song. We connected them with James Wisner who’s been making awesome tracks with acts like Paramore, Dashboard Confessional, The Academy Is and Hands Like Houses. Blending a sound of dark alternative pop rock ala Against The Current or The 1975, we think they are onto something with their sound. Check out the song above!

A few months back the band Manic hit us up about getting help mixing their new song. We connected them with Eric Palmquist who’s been making awesome tracks with acts like Hunny, Bad Suns, Thrice and Mute Math. Together they crafted a pop rock track that reminds me of Acceptance, Parachute or The Spill Canvas mixed with a more modern pop-rock edge, exhibiting a well-crafted song!  Check out the song above!

A common way of getting your music licensed is to go through intermediaries. These are organizations that work closely with creatives, companies and whomever else needs music to license.

We got the chance to do a cool interview to get to know one of Noise Creators talented producers. Ian got his first taste of recording while attending Berklee college of music. He learned the basics of recording and became quickly obsessed, viewing each session as if it was his own band and carefully helping bands to create their own individual sound. The Echoroom has become a hub in the northeast for indie artists and anyone who pursues a true musical identity. From its start in 2004, the Echoroom recording studio has worked with bands of every genre imaginable. A balance realism and studio magic define Ian and the Echoroom. What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen in the studio? I had just moved into a new studio space and half of my ceiling tiles were removed to run wires….. I thought it would be cool to leave some tiles out and put colored lights above the drop ceiling….. as I’m tracking with a band I hear a POP, see a FLASH from behind me and everything goes dark, I turned around to see a friend of the band’s climbing OUT of the drop ceiling saying “SORRY SORRY I JUST WANTED TO Read more…

Will Beasley is a producer/audio engineer from Northeastern North Carolina. Starting out his career as an assistant engineer for producers Brian McTernan (Salad Days) and Paul Leavitt (Valencia), Will has worked with bands such as Emarosa, Turnstile, Handguns, and Dryjacket. He takes a hands-on approach to recording and pushes clients to reach their full potential while in the studio. Currently Will is operating out of his studio in Currituck, North Carolina. In a quiet, scenic area just steps from the waterfront, it is a very comfortable location to make a record. Below is an interview where we get to know some of his thoughts on making records. What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen in the studio?  If you mean a crazy display of talent I’ve seen then I’d say a “holy shit” moment was getting to track Daniel Fang from Turnstile/Angel Dust. I think that was one of the first times I literally didn’t have to edit a single drum hit haha. He’s one of those dudes where I feel like it wouldn’t matter if he was playing the most horrible drum kit in the worst room ever it would still sound good just because he hits so well!

We got the chance to do a cool interview to get to know one of Noise Creators talented producers. Aslan Freeman  grew up as a studio hobbyist while working with his father as a live sound engineer. After completing a BM in Music Composition at UNC-Greensboro and spending time touring in rock bands, Freeman briefly worked and studied under Jesse Cannon, Mike Oettinger, and a few local producers before setting up Freeman Productions Studio in a spacious old house outside of Chapel Hill, NC. Freeman Productions has quickly gained a reputation for its quality and affordability while servicing countless local and national acts in every genre from country, pop and electronic music to indie rock, classical and hardcore. With his thorough knowledge of music theory and extensive experience as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Freeman can bring your project to life, no matter if it’s a string quartet for a film score, a raw punk record, or a radio-bound pop single. What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen in the studio? Over the course of 2015 I did a bunch of work on a record called Hall Street Mural for a good friend of mine named Jake Rogers. I grew up watching Jake Read more…
