Skilled Audio Engineer and Video Editor

I'm an audio engineer and video editor with over 6 years of professional experience recording, mixing, and editing music and audio, and 4 years of experience editing video and creating motion graphics. I believe in putting the clients needs first. I'll work with your vision and communicate every step of the way to create amazing results. I have a professional yet creative attitude towards every project I work on, and I prioritize strong fundamental concepts as the foundation for any project. My specialties are music, podcasts, live sound, video editing, and motion graphics. Keep reading for an overview of my services, or click one of the tabs on the left to read about my skills in more detail. My website is chrisrubis.com MUSIC: I have recorded, produced, and mixed several albums, EPs, and singles, although artists typically hire me just for one or two of those stages. I specialize in mixing rock, rap, hip-hop, and funk, but between mixing records and live shows, I've worked with almost every genre at some point. I can also master your music to get it ready for digital release. I'm a musician (bassist, songwriter) myself, and I approach mixing from an artistic perspective, not just a technical one. I strive to find creative ways to elevate the best parts of your song to create an unforgettable listening experience. PODCASTS/AUDIOBOOKS/DIALOGUE: I'm an avid listener of podcasts and audiobooks, and I specialize in the editing skills needed to create polished, professional podcast episodes. I can mix you and your guests' voices to sound full and clear, free of distracting breaths, "uhm's", and all those weird noises you didn't know your mouth makes when you talk. I can run tools to remove background noise that your mic may have picked up. I'll mix in intros, soundtracks, and special effects to draw in your listeners. I'll also deal with making sure your audio meets technical standards like ACX, so it's ready for distribution right away. VIDEO EDITING/MOTION GRAPHICS: I edit in Premiere Pro and After Effects and have experience creating motion graphics, color correcting, adding effects, animated text, creatively utilizing b-roll, and assembling final cuts across many scenes and camera angles. Check out the Video Editing tab for my website with examples of my work. LIVE EVENTS (Raleigh, NC Area & Virtual): I'm an experienced live sound engineer with 6 years of experience setting up and running live concerts, meetings, and theater. Ability to do Front-of-House as well as monitors. Venues I've worked for include: -The Broadberry; Richmond, VA (600 person capacity) -Jammin' Java; Vienna, VA (200 cap.) -Sara Belle November Theater; Richmond, VA (355 cap.) -Temporary installs at weddings, outdoor events, breweries, and restaurants. I am also an experienced virtual event technician, having run meetings for the Virginia House of Delegates and US Patent and Trademark Office over the Zoom and Webex platforms. Contact me about getting your in-person or virtual event sounding great! CONSULTING/COACHING: Are you struggling with getting your recordings to sound good? Maybe you need advice on how to get started producing music or podcasts on your own? Did you buy some new recording gear or software but need help using it? Perhaps you realized you could use an experienced producer at your side to facilitate your recording session virtually. I love to help out artists and content creators, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you need guidance, tech support, or lessons. I've worked with independent artists, small businesses, and start-up tech companies to help them be on their way to producing content independently.
