Been a professional mixing engineer for the past 8 years and have worked with various musician, agency, and even broadcasting company (MEASAT Broadcast Network Systems).
Having been a part of the Malaysian music scene for the past 15 years as a musician / guitarist, producer and also audio engineer, I come to learn to appreciate various genre of songs and it’s unique beats through experimentation and exposure. It all started from a need, a need for perfection in creating a unique song that I can say it’s my greatest work. Having the same motto was what drove me in the direction of mixing for other artist, artist who have the same passion and desire to create and produce a song that they would be proud to call their own.
Having been mixing for well known artist throughout Asia, it’s been a great pleasure to understand the needs and wants of each artist when it comes to their flavor in music and beats.
For those who are interested in trying my services out do keep in mind I’ll be using Cubase Pro 9 the recommended software for mixing.

Meng is one of the most patient and helpful engineers I've ever met. This guy knows his stuff in terms of mixing and mastering. He would be sure to ask his clients for their opinions on what their album should sound like in terms of mixing and mastering because he wouldn't want dissatisfied customers. Would definitely love to work with him again.
