Mainframe Multimedia on SoundBetter

My job is to make your music connect with the consumer. I am voting member of the Grammy Association / Recording academy. I have been in the music business for over 40 years. I experienced the music industry and music production when they were at their peaks. I know what hit recordings are supposed to sound like.

i am from Brooklyn NY.
i started writing and playing instruments onstage at 16yrs old.back in the 70's.
i love the sound of analog tape and a good analog board.
To be honest i think a large percentage of todays recordings sound like cardboard mush / AM Radio,.
My goal is to give my clients a sound that lives up to the golden years of the recording industry.
I mix and master to achieve a quality sound that will stand the test of time.
I use a combination of analog and digital outboard gear.
