Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I've been mixing and producing audio in Los Angeles for over 15 years. I've learned and worked under multi Grammy award winning mixer and producer, Jack Joseph Puig. I've also done years of sound design for the CW network working on the animated series of TRANSFORMERS and SPIDERMAN among others. I took a break from THUMBTACK in 2014 when I got signed and worked on producing bands and music for TV, film and advertising. After having to close our studio last year due to COVID I now have an epic hybrid set up at my house. I'll add a gear list to the bottom of all my outboard gear that is at my/our disposal. All music is different so I go about every mix by listening to the song and seeing what it is trying to say and then empowering that message. Instead of doing the "same" thing every time. My passion and creativity is what separates me from other mixers. The whole process of seeing an idea from someones mind to the point at which it reaches the consumer. Always is a fascinating journey. You've spent thousands of hours creating your masterpiece... why not take care and pride with how you finish it! GEAR: Manley Voxbox, Avalon 737sp, SSL G-COMP, Shadow Hills Dual Vandergraph, RETRO Instruments DoubleWide, SSL EQ611, Universal Audio 2-610, Shadow Hills Mono Gama, Empirical Labs Distressor, IGS S-Type VA Compressor, "Hot Rodded" Apogee Rosetta 800 converters x2 with D-Bus summing with modifications.

I have had a #1 selling album with Sony, I have worked with Grammy award winning producers; Michael Jay (Celine Dion/Eminem) & Nick Patrick (Russell Watson & Katherine Jenkins) and conductors, Engineers (such as Simon Rhodes) at Abbey Road. Rob Heskin is the most warm hearted person in the industry you could meet. This is exactly what you need on entering a recording studio. I have recorded classically laying on top of hip hop tracks, and have also recorded a more pop sound - (voice & guitar) Eva Cassidy raw acoustic style with him. Whatever your genre Rob makes you feel really at ease enabling you to get your best performance. While taking the business side of things very seriously, getting the project delivered on time he also happens to be a very funny person which creates so much enjoyment during the creative process. Rob has the ability to mix with people from all walks of life, whatever your project is, whether you are looking to record dubstep, hip-hop, classical violin or voice or even rock-a-bily or even a commercial voice over reel. I couldn't recommend Rob more. MUSIC PRODUCER of any genre or RECORDING ENGINEER for MUSIC & VOICE OVER REELS for commercial/film he is an all round POWER HOUSE!

Rob has a talent working with various artists in the studio. He pushes you to strive for excellence with each take. Rob balances the line of providing direction and taking constructive feedback during mixing and recording sessions.

Rob was great! I recorded a VO reel with him. I brought in a few scripts and we worked for maybe an hour getting good takes. Rob's background helps suit him to giving feedback on the performance of your reads, but I'm sure if you'd rather not get notes he's fine with that too. The sound quality of the reel is awesome, he's super friendly and fun, and I had a great time!

We absolutely love Rob's creative and musicality. He's always come thru on whatever project we've put in front of him. Extremely easy to work with and the final product is constantly above and beyond our clients expectations.

Rob has been the best producer my band has worked with. Not only did the quality of the production come out top notch but the cooperation was great. Everything went smoothly and the end result was awesome!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It's a matter of what the source is. They're situation. Is it 126 tracks of nightmare edits that was recorded poorly with bad performances. Or does it just need to be balanced? I've done everything from free to few grand a song. Typically I think we can always work out something fair, again it depends on everyone's situation and what needs to be done. Maybe it needs more producing? Better takes? It's hard to pin point it, everything is custom.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It's always been about working with people that compliment what you do. A lot of times I always find it's best to meet or at least talk to see if you will be good match for each other. Always making sure you are both thinking and moving in the same direction and vision.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was one of 14 engineers in the world to be asked to go to "Mix with the Masters" in the south of France. Hanging out mixing with the worlds top mixers and sharing secret after secret and working on all kinds of new genres, from Indian hip-hop to Swedish dub step¦ Always learning because it's limitless. Since being back I've had the honor to learn some of Jack Joseph Puig's tricks personally at Ocean Way Recordings. Incredible!
