James Auwarter on SoundBetter

I will deliver world-class treatments for your most precious work. **Grammy Award Winning Engineer** / *officially credited on 31 total Grammy nominations.* I generally mix and master remotely, but am available to travel as well. Whatever YOU need!--let's chat!

RECORDING / MIXING / MASTERING ENGINEER

“Studio James” is known for his diversity, having the distinction of successfully working in practically every genre of music over his 15+ year career. This has included credits on Grammy nominated Hip Hop / R&B / Gospel / Jazz, while also having worked with world renowned classical musicians, rockstars, popstars (and even a Billboard-charting Country artist).

After working out of countless big studios as a freelancer, since 2016, James has owned his Chicago-based studio, branded Coda Room Audio. In 2019, James received Arts Council England’s formal endorsement for a UK Tier 1 “Exceptional Talent” visa, paving the way for a whole new adventure (and expansion) across the pond. While still retaining a presence in the Chicago/USA scene, James now also resides in London.

Feel free to check out codaroomaudio.com for more information on myself and my studio.

PS: A lot of people like to claim that they're Grammy-winning or Grammy-nominated...but, unfortunately, many of these people are not. Check for yourself, and don't take their word for it. Simply goto grammy.com and search their name. If it doesn't show up there, it did not happen.

    James really changed the way we heard our song. We were already proud of it as it was and he transformed it into something we could really be proud of. Two thumbs up, a definite 10/10.

    I am so glad to have collaborated with James. As a newbie to music content creation, I didn't know what to expect. I certainly had more than my share of questions. I knew what I wanted, but didn't always know how to articulate my vision musically. James was enthusiastic about my project, and was thorough enough to make sure we were on the same page. Thanks SoundBetter, and many thanks to James. I appreciate the mastering.

    Consider yourself lucky if you chose James to master your songs or albums. He did an absolutte A+ performance on my song, showed sincere interest in what sound I was aiming at, and is very nice and easy to communicate with. My strongest reccomendations.
