Will Palmer on SoundBetter

I'm a Middle TN based mixing engineer and my passion is mixing! I love taking audio that you put your heart and soul into creating and taking it to the next level. It's my mission to give artists a quality mix they'll want to show everyone!

I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Audio Production to hone my mixing skills. From the moment I started college I gained as much knowledge as I could to take audio and make it fantastic.

I specialize in mixing Rock, Punk, Alternative, Pop Punk, Metal, and anything related to those genres. However if you like what you hear from my portfolio I'd love to discuss further with you. I strive to make everything I mix great!

Please contact me if you have any questions or inquiries!
