Engineer Aaron Smith—engineering, production, mixing, and mastering. Specializing in extreme metal and rock.

As incredible as modern recording technology is, the truth is that no amount of advancement will ever adequately compensate for a song that has been poorly written, arranged, or performed. Likewise, even a great song will suffer if not enough care is given to the often less-than-obvious subtleties addressed throughout the engineering, editing, mixing, and mastering processes. The creation of an outstanding recording demands a delicate balance of artistic creativity and technical cognizance; of an emotional connection with the material, and a fundamental understanding of sound. Most importantly, it demands an engineer with patience, diligence, the foresight to envisage what a recording should ultimately be before it has even begun, and the aptitude and tools needed to bring it into reality.
