Stephen Freeman on SoundBetter

My name is Stephen Freeman and I am the owner of a home studio now located in Phoenix, AZ. My goal is to remain affordable to the bands or artists who can't afford a high end studio but still deserve to be heard in the best way possible.

I am Stephen Freeman and I am a freelance audio engineer currently based in Phoenix, AZ. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a bachelors degree in Recording Technology in 2010 and have also been a musician for over 15 years. Over the years I have honed my skills as an engineer and have worked hard to gain the skills which allow me to provide the services I offer today. Working in the music industry is something that I've wanted to do all my life, which is why I opened my studio. My goal is to remain affordable to the bands or artists who can't afford a high end studio but still deserve to be heard in the best way possible. Feel free to check out some of my work and please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Although limited compared to larger studios, my studio contains everything needed to record, edit, mix and master a full production from the ground up (including live drums) with a sound that competes with larger, more expensive studios.

Services I offer:

Editing (Drum Editing, Instrument Editing, Vocal Tuning, etc.)
Mixing
Mastering

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Once in a while, your musical enthusiasm gets in the way of a usable musical experience: my freely floating track was in such a state. If it weren't for Stephen's musicianship and robust technical craftsmanship, it would have been lost.
    Stephen works fast, gives regular feedback which you need to okay, so you're always on the level.
    I cannot laud and praise this professional enough: highly recommended!

    Stephen did a great job editing my drum tracks, always got back to me fast, and finished the project in a few days when I asked for them within a week. I definitely recommend working with him on your project.

    Stephen time-aligned and vocal corrected my tracks. He was professional and accommodating and he made sure I was satisfied before closing the job out. I would recommend!
