DennisCalvin on SoundBetter

I love to get the most out of your project. But ! Without losing its soul. I`m a purist. In Recording and Mixing , I try to get the most out of the Song / Project , without bringing to much taste of mine into it, so I could keep the original idea of the Artist, but adding or bringing up its strength ! Peace and Love Dennis Calvin

I love to make music. I think its the direct link to our souls !
