I was born in Manhattan, but raised in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, where I currently reside. I also proudly identify as a 2nd generation Asian American (half Hong Kong via my mother, half Taiwanese via my father) and a member of the LGBTQIA+ community (gay and demisexual). Since childhood, I have had a distinct love of music and performance. Having played violin from 4th to 12th grade and sung for even longer, I used music as a primary means to express myself growing up. As I progressed from high school to college, I discovered online voice acting, but it was not until my time in graduate school that I formally decided to become an actor. My interest initially stemmed from a desire to help out in localization projects, but over the time I have spent voice acting, I have come to not only develop a great appreciation of the craft of acting, but also further deepen my love of music and rekindle my love of performance. With my singing experience as a basis to my unique perspectives, I hope to bring sensitivity, curiosity, and innovation to every project I work on!

Vocal Music Mixing Commission Info
Do you need mixing for your own vocal music, be it a cover, original song, or chorus battle? If so, you're in the right place! I am offering mixing services for vocal music of all genres! If you are interested in knowing more information, please DM me on Twitter or Discord!
Standard Job Slot Status: 3/5
Wait List Slot Status: 10/10
Chorus Battle Slot Status: DM FOR INFO
Base Pricing (ALL RATES ARE IN USD)
$15.00 per minute of the full song, rounded down to the nearest minute.
Includes timing all voice parts to the backing track.
Subject to adjustment based on complexity of audio effects.
If the song is less than a full minute long, it will be billed at a minimum flat rate of $15.00, no matter how short it is.
For a rushed deadline, an additional flat rate of $5.00 will be added.
Tuning Fee (OPTIONAL)
$5.00 per voice part.
A voice part is defined as a distinct individual voice in the song. For instance, a song done by a solo artist only has one vocal part, and a duet has two parts, and so on for songs by large idol groups or for chorus battles. The same person recording overdubs or additional ad-libs in a voice consistent with their main vocal tone will NOT be billed separately.
For vocalists who can sing in two distinct voices (e.g. singing in a character voice different from one's natural tone or ryouseirui singers), each unique voice will be billed as a separate voice part.
Ryouseirui is a Japanese term referring to a person's ability to sing in not only their natural born gender tone, but also a different (usually opposite) gender's tone. Examples include 96neko, Mafumafu, and Lon.
Terms of Service
Please provide your own backing tracks. I will NOT take a job without a backing track. THIS MEANS NO ACAPELLA OR INSTRUMENTAL COVERS (for now)!
Payment will occur upfront, before any work will begin. Filling out my commission form means that you are immediately ready to pay in full. Please understand that I will NOT accept refunds after payment has been collected. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions to this rule.
I only accept Paypal for payments at this time!
Please submit a sample of your audio quality. There is a question in the form for that purpose that is required to fill out before submitting. I will not take a job with a recording setup that is not of a certain quality. Please also read the Quality Clause below for more info!
You may request a quote from me for a potential job free of charge via DMs on Twitter or Discord. All quoted prices are final (barring any retake fees), should you be interested in going through with your commission.
Jobs with a quick deadline will result in increased prices.
I will only accept ONE (1) Chorus Battle mixing slot at a time. If you would like for me to potentially mix your CB, please DM me on Twitter or Discord first so we can discuss your vision. See #8 below for details about complexity.
If your song has complex audio effects (examples include, but are not limited to, Billie Eilish songs and K-Pop songs), please DM me on Twitter or Discord before filling out the commission form. I will decide whether I can do it or not with the skills I have right now. I cannot promise to be able to do every song with the skills I have, but I may be open to it in the future. Any discussion about the complexity of a song should be made BEFORE the commission form is filled to avoid unnecessary confusion!
I will not take any job that involves political agendas of any leaning, hate of any kind (subtle or otherwise) towards marginalized groups, or topics that I am not comfortable working with.
Copying this commission information text for your own personal use is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. No exceptions.
Please credit me as Nick Chang and link to my Twitter page in your video description type area (https://twitter.com/CloverHouraisan).
I reserve the exclusive right to refuse a job or close commissions for any reason.
Quality Clause (PLEASE DO NOT SKIP)
Please understand that good vocals do NOT result from editing alone! If you record with any combination of bad equipment or an untreated space, you will achieve a subpar result! XLR mics in treated recording spaces are highly recommended. USB mics are fine too, but I will NOT accept a job where you plan to record with a headset or phone mic or if your recording set-up is poorly treated.
For all intents and purposes, a Blue Snowball USB mic with a blanket fort as a booth are the baseline recording conditions under which I will accept a job.
