Hey I'm Mark - thanks for checking out my work. I've been producing / programming / and mixing professionally since I was 16. I'm fortunate to have worked on Billboard #1's, multiple Grammy Award winning projects, gold and platinum records. I have my own label distributed through X5 / Warner Bros. I can produce, mix, master, program and more.
I enjoy working on a wide range of projects and rates are quoted per project. My programming and mix rate is $250 per hour and depends on the project as well. Once I have information about your project I can quote a fixed rate that allows for some revisions (within reason). A guide would be $2,500 and up for fully programming a track (all instruments), and $2,500 (label) or $800 (indie) and up for mixing. My mix audio path is Apogee conversion into my SSL console, and back into the DAW with Apogee conversion. My process includes gathering as much insight as I can, with references, goals, and guidelines for tuning, balance, wet vs. dry, and more before we start. I like to upload references via dropbox throughout the process to ensure we are heading in the right direction. I enjoy working with great indie artists as much as I enjoy working with labels (Sony, Universal, EMI, Motown, Integrity, Warner Bros.). Looking forward to hearing your music and being a part of the process.

Mark Townsend is a Grammy worthy engineer and producer whose worked with a lot of great artists! He mixes a record I tracked drums on and he made the experience very enjoyable and memorable! Proud to call him a dear friend
Mark is a musical savant. He has his own voice and has something uniquely great to offer every time he sits down to make art. He has the sweet spot of head and heart music. He has the skill set to do anything but heart to make something special. Above all Mark is a great hang and a great dude.
