DibS on SoundBetter

I've been doing this for almost 30 years and worked with countless celebs. I'm looking for new musical challenges.

I'm in the process of building out my studio so I'm only looking for Mix and Post work currently.

I've made records big and small. I started on 2" tape and was an early adopter of the 1's and 0's. I can work in both worlds but I love the freedom of modern DAW recording.

What I learned making pop records was how to find what makes a track special and focus on that. There are plenty of mixers who can get you a great snare sound, but finding the emotional impact within sonic subtext of a track is what real mixing is all about.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.
