I am a music connoisseur at heart, and being entrusted with the client's creation is something I hold sacred. I make sure to honor his or her direction in addition to giving the project my full attention and care. While my primary expertise is in hip-hop, R&B and soul, I have worked extensively on everything from folk and jazz to psychedelic pop.
When it comes to mixing and mastering, I use only the very best, up-to-date plugins and a variety of outboard gear. Turn-around time is 48 hours on average, and I offer a reasonable amount of revisions to ensure that the client is fully satisfied. Rates for my mixing services are inclusive of vocal tuning and mastering if requested.
