@raleigh_thevamp on SoundBetter

I do a lot with music & audio... My goal here is to help you get your audio mix [especially vocals] sounding ready for a world wide audience. I'm an ASCAP award-winning musician, producer, and engineer. Link me for mixing & analog mastering... Or just to say what's up

I'm a producer, songwriter, and mixing / mastering engineer... overall a musical artist and scientist of sound.

My music industry background spirals from NY, to the midwest, and now to California, USA. It began at Def Jam & Capitol Records, then fast forwards to some of NYC's historic studios including ROC the Mic, KMA, Crosby Collective, and The Mastering Palace.

I really care about sound & vibration. Sonic quality is a huge factor in helping musicians tell their story. As an audio enthusiast / gear collector, I utilize refined audio techniques & technology to help enhance the feeling of music.

I run an analog / digital hybrid setup feat. Pro Tools HD, SSL Duality, analog outboard gear by: Dangerous, Neve, Shadow Hills, Millennia, Crane Song, Manley, API, Harrison, and more.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
