Future Zero Studios on SoundBetter

I believe that emotionally-driven mix decisions create the “goosebump” moments in music. A technical approach to engineering is how it starts, but when I compose and mix, I am decisive and clearheaded in my creative decision-making.

Based in ATX, Future Zero Studios is the project space for lead producer and session guitarist Marshall Benson. The studio is equipped with high-end microphones, pre-amps, and compressors capable of capturing 'the magic'. Acoustically-recorded as well as programmed drums are a Future Zero specialty, with special attention paid to creating a massive drum sound. DAW control is performed in Ableton Live, which lends itself to a modern, electronic music-like texture to the productions.

Future Zero also offers compositional arrangement of guitar parts; lead melodies and solo spots are available on a quick turn-around.

Looking for sound design? The studio also sports a mixture of analog/subtractive, FM, PCM, and sample-based synthesizers.

Future Zero also offers overdub and vocal recording in an acoustically-treated space using high-end AKG condenser mics in combination with API and Manley pre-amps patched into a Focusrite Thunderbolt interface.

    Marshall is a skilled, fluid and Knowledgeable guitarist. He knows exactly how to play to a song and doesn't "overdo" it. His approach and technique is top notch. If i need a quick turn around on a solo or a track. I give this guys a call.

  • Droplift is getting ready to release their first single, "Blurred"Apr 18, 2019

    I am happy to announce that Droplift has entrusted me with the recording and mixing of their single "Blurred". The song is a sludgy, heavy post-grunge rocker with sailing vocal harmonies reminiscent of Alice in Chains. 

    Local engineer Eric of Wonderland Studios is applying the mastering to take it over the finish line. Stay tuned for a release announcement!
