“Big Studio Sound, Indie Pricing”
I have been in audio production & engineering for 10 years. I do instrumental, vocal, and full song mixes/masters. Advanced mixing techniques will give you that broadcast quality, full sound you are looking for. My specialty genre is Hip-Hop & RNB, but can take on any genre. Clients are typically very impressed with my work. I do a lot of vocal mixes where the artist will send me a beat they have with their recorded vocals (WAV) and I will give them that pristine radio ready mix down it deserves; ask about our first time client special!
