Eric Astor on SoundBetter

It's the ear, not the gear. My approach to engineering has been shaped through 27 years as a musician and over 20 working in sound. A combination of all the technical recording elements with the artistry and creativity of musicianship. By understanding music, the creative process, and recording techniques, I know how to work with artists to help

I record, mix, and master at my studio, The Hideaway. A private, pro level studio in Los Angeles, featuring 4 isolated tracking rooms, a Yamaha C7 grand piano, and some of the finest vintage and modern gear around. There is a philosophy here that creating great records requires a blend of great equipment, a great room, great ears, and an understanding of great music. If you add to that a great work ethic, you'll get a great record - guaranteed. I aim to capture YOUR sound, mix YOUR songs, and help YOUR music be the best it can be.
