Jeremy Donovan

Mix Engineer and Sound Design

Jeremy Donovan on SoundBetter

You've done the hard part and plucked this random, amazing idea from your mind. You've organized it and made it into something that has never been heard by anyone except for you and possibly your neighbors as you stay up until 3am trying to figure out what exactly is this crazy idea? All of the hard work is done so let's let the people hear it.

I am an all around audio engineer. Meaning; I edit, mix, and master anything audio related. Songs, films, meditations, audio books, podcasts etc. I have been doing this for about ten years mainly all over the Chicagoland area.

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