I am an award winning Calgary based recording/mixing/mastering engineer and Producer with a passion for Music. In 2002 I started working for Warner Brothers Hungary as an in-house engineer/Producer on wide range of A-list Hungarian artists where I developed a good sense in crafting radio ready mixes.
As I come from a musician background I know how painstaking it is to write and arrange a song and for that reason I treat each song I am working on as my own child. I know exactly how much a good mix gives to productions. I am always exploring new sounds and new approaches to give my productions a unique sound to stand out of the crowd while I aim for 100% customer satisfaction.
I work with a wide variety of genres with artists from indie to major label (Warner, Universal) pop artists. I have learned throughout the years how to get the most out of projects even if the budget is tight.

Reviews (8)Endorse David Schram
David is a true professional. His work exceeds almost all other mixers I have heard. He will give you something you will be proud of.
David is an incredible mixer. He has a talent for bringing out the best in your music.
I had a pretty clear vision of how I wanted my new song to sound in the end, and David was able to make it happen. He is a highly skilled sound engineer and easy to work with. It was a great experience to work with him on my music, and I am extremely satisfied with the results. I would recommend his services to anyone.
David mastered and mixed our singles released in 2016 both of them becoming major radio hits and chart toppers. He's a true song enthusiast and always looking to widen his clients' artistic vision and pulls the songs into perfection. After working with several sound engineers and producers it's safe to say that David is THE man for the job.
David is an open minded, determined and highly skilled professional who I have always enjoyed to work with. From pre-production, via song-crafting, until the recording sessions, mixing and mastering, he was always a proactive partner in creation of music. I highly recommend to work with such music and sound enthusiast person like himself.
While recording producing and mixing the Kolin's latest album, "KRIXKRAX" he not only did a very professional job but he tought us to think differently to music. It was really easy to follow his instructions while he had quite an outstanding perspective which inspired us a lot.
We always turn to Dave when recording a new song. He does everything from recording to mixing and mastering with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. He is capable of adapting to the style of the band he is working with, lo-fi to classical. His sound engineering talent is met with a desire to keep learning and improving every day.
It's always a pleasure to work with Dave. We made 2 LP's and one EP with him, and the workflow was flawless. Dave is a real perfectionist, he takes care of about the smallest parts of the project with true devotion and determination. We are always more than happy with the results.
