Todd Carder on SoundBetter

Recording Engineer, mixer, and partner at the acclaimed Brooklyn studio The Bunker.

I began my career over 10 years ago as a recording engineer in humble studios of my home state of Oklahoma. In 2012 I uprooted to New York City and started completely from scratch.

By 2013, I was lucky enough to get a job at the legendary Sear Sound where they put me through the wringer; in other words, I quickly discovered that there is no place like New York City to really get your ass kicked!

Fast forward to today- I have earned my stripes working with the best in a variety of genres. I’ve worked on over 1000 sessions during my time in New York, and each recording and mixing experience has shaped my views sonically and artistically.

I’ve dedicated myself fully to the art of making records. My goal is to help as many musicians realize their vision in as efficient, creative, and stress free way possible, while obtaining a pleasingly visceral sonic experience.

I love deep thoughts, I’m down for the hang, and I take your music seriously. Crazy ideas are what I thrive on, and I hope to trek into new sonic territories with you.

Don’t hesitate to reach out! Even for just a chat!

    It was a pleasure to work with Todd.

    He did a fantastic job mixing and mastering one of my compositions. He clearly understood my musical intention - his mix very well supported my arrangement and he added some awesome creative effects. Communication was fast, clear and kind at all times. Big recommendation!
