Big sound for a small budget
Remote mixing services where you provide the stems and I provide a bangin' mix for your next song or beat! I used to work for a massive studio before I became tired of all the dramatics so I decided that from then on I'm going to focus on providing for smaller indie artists. I still do label projects but I really feel I can connect with smaller indie artists and bands!

Tyler is a pleasure to work with and does great mixing. We will definitely be return customers!
His policy on revisions is very helpful and he is patient and polite during the entire process. We recommend Tyler! -The Dirty Vice Band
Tyler has such great energy & a fun personality! He instantly makes his artist comfortable and ready to perform at a top-level. I've had the chance to work with him professionally and he's always been rock solid. Coming from a love of many styles of music (especially jazz) he understands what it takes to achieve a quality product for his clients in many different styles. If you're looking for an up and coming engineering with Nashville chops, look no further. Tyler will run circles around the competition and do it all for an affordable price.
Tyler is a perfect example of “The Next Generation”. The kid comes with the full package. Need a song mixed? He’s got the ear and know how. Need a bass line or an acoustic part? He’s got the playing skill. Need ANYTHING else? He can do it or get it done. Honestly, he’s going to give you a product that you should’ve paid more for... in a good way. He’s going to go above and beyond to make sure your project sounds right. No need to look any further.
Interview with Tyler Callahan
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If I had to take five pieces of gear, it would probably be an SSL G-Comp, a pair of API 550s, an API 2500 and a maag EQ4.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would absolutely love to work with John Mayer because he’s influenced me from the very early stages of my career. I’ve studied his music so intensely I feel like I could knock a mix out of the park.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Please make sure that the performance and song always comes first. You have nothing if you don’t have a good song, and it’s really hard to make a weak performance stand out in the production or mix.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process all depends on what the client wants! Normally for a full mix, I start by importing stems, and making sure they all line up, I then do the typical mix engineer stuff like labeling, coloring, organizing, top and tailing then cutting dead space. I then make sure that if there are drums that they’re in phase, I can’t stress enough how important this is and how easily out of phase drums can ruin a good recording. After the drums I go ahead and tune the vocal in Melodyne, once the vocal is tuned I then go ahead and make sure everything is in time, once that’s done I start actually mixing! I use a lot of parallel compression and saturation, I feel it makes things louder and more full overall.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: There isn't much to behold with my setup as I'm very much a small time mixer. I've got an Apollo Twin running through a Macbook Pro with a pair of the classic Adam A7s.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Oh god, there are so many different professional producers and engineers that inspire me, but if I had to pick two of each it'd have to be Andrew Scheps and Glyn Johns on the engineer side and Greg Wells and George Martin on the production side.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I normally do vocal editing, vocal production and mixing for my clients, as well as whatever they tell me they need help with! That's really what I'm here for, helping artists and producers get the most out of their songs.
