Ryan McDougall - RPM Audio on SoundBetter

My main goal in life is to make remarkable records with remarkable people. My primary focus is on mixing and mastering. I've spent 2 decades working on my craft so that you don't have to. Involving a mix engineer who gets your vision and will represent it in a way that has potential for commercial success allows you to concentrate on making music.

I began recording and mixing demos for bands and songwriters in 1998. All I had were a pair of adats, a 16 channel Mackie mixer, an Alesis Midiverb, and a rack of the cheapest eq's and compressors money could buy. I got decent results by using my ears and not over-doing things. Since then I've upgraded the equipment. I've also gone through so many phases of chasing a style of recording, achieving it, then moving onto the next. The technology has changed a lot as well, and that has improved my attitude toward mixing with a mouse as well as it's improved my workflow.

I have no designs on being a huge star or being showered with respect, adoration, or acceptance from anyone. I just want to earn a living while doing the best work I possibly can and to be surrounded by people I enjoy.

I've had the pleasure of working closely with some supremely talented people and have helped many new artists get started. I try to bring an old school twist to modern music. I'm patient and fearless. I draw on experience, passion, and intuition when it comes to painting with sound. This makes me a driving force and major part of every project on which I work.

Thanks for taking a look at my profile and I'm excited to hear what you're working on.

    Ryan is great! We had a webseries that was in rough shape audio-wise and Ryan stepped in and saved the day. Total rockstar and wonderful to work with.

    I know Ryan as an audio student. He has consistently shown himself to be willing and able to come up with great sounding and innovative solutions to the challenges set before him. I can heartily endorse him. He should be a part of your next project.

  4. Review by Audrey M.

    Ryan has a wonderfully creative brain and is very skilled and professional in his work. He has been in the business for a while so definitely knows what he is doing. He will work with you and your vision, making it come to life. Apart from being incredibly talented, he is a delight to be around and super easy to work with.

    Ryan mixed my most recent original song and I am so happy with the outcome- I will be returning to him for more mixes and also once my body of work is ready to be mastered. He was really good about listening to my notes along the way and never made me feel like I was putting him out. Thankful for his dedication!

    Ryan is my go to for mix/master. He seems to actually invest in a mix as if its his song which yields different results that i've had with other mixers. Balancing and doing something that is technically correct or shows up in meters to be comparatively good is useless to me and Ryan gets that too. He's fearlessly chasing after whatever sounds right
