Zolton on SoundBetter

Professional mixing engineer and producer. Represented on a global publishing/syncing deal as a songwriter.

I'm a mixing engineer/producer/songwriter with 20+ years experience producing music across a variety of genres. As a producer/songwriter, I've worked on songs with some of the greats of the mixing world - Bob Clearmountain, Mark Needham, Tony Hoffer and Phil Tan. I've also been mentored by Australia's own venerated mixing legend, David Hemming, and learned the art of mixing via Berklee's School of Music.

Mixing is my passion. I LOVE immersing myself in the intricacies of a song. I can add creatively to a mix where needed, or simply enhance what's already there.

I'm into all styles - pop, rock, synth-wave, acoustic. I haven't mixed death metal yet ... but hey, I'm always up for a challenge!

Testimonials:
"Working with Zolton is awesome. He knows how to communicate; his mixes are really great" - Adam 'Yukon' Harr (mastering Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber)
"Zolton has great instincts and is a wonderful songwriter." - David Kershenbaum (producer of 75 international Gold and Platinum albums)
"It is always a pleasure to mix songs for Zolton. I know that the production and songwriting will be top notch" - Mark Needham (mixer The Killers, Imagine Dragons)
"Zolton is very talented and a pleasure to work with." - Nicolas Essig (mixer Daft Punk, Paul McCartney)

    I've recorded throat singing Kargyraa for Zolton, and it has been a very interesting project. His song has a great quality sound and production. It was in a style that I'm not used to, how ever I loved it and loved to work on it.

    Zolton was a dream to work with. I liked the song so much that I heard the drum part in 2 ways. So, I recorded both and gave him two versions. A great song and an easy guy to work with! I hope to do more work together!

Love the communications between us that yields a great mix! His music and production were spot on and very well crafted. Looking forward to collab with him down the road!

Interview with Zolton

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: I've been lucky enough to have some of the world's best mixing engineers work their magic on my own music over the years. Bob Clearmountain (Roxy Music, Springsteen, Rolling Stones etc) was one and he continues to inspire. He does things with the depth and shape of sounds that are just mind-blowing. Tony Hoffer is another who has worked on my music and has always been happy to share his thoughts on his approach to mixing. I've always enjoyed his input in particular around the creative process.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: I mix music across a variety of genres. Because of my experience as a producer/songwriter, I'm able to input creatively where needed on songs, but I'm equally happy just making what's sent through to me sound awesome as it is. Generally I'll spend time at the outset checking and fixing if required timing and tuning issues and making sure everything is lined up perfectly. Then I'll get stuck into the fun part of pulling all the pieces together to create an epic whole.
