I produce and mix quality sessions with quick turn around times that compete with commercial records. Services Include mixing/mastering (all genres), instrumentals, and songwriting sessions for hip hop and RnB genres. The DAWs I use are ProTools and Logic for mixing and FL Studio for beat programming.
Hey, I’m Quentin and I’m a Producer/Engineer from Panama City Beach, FL. I started my music journey as an Artist/Songwriter and realized quickly that if your production and mix is bad, then it doesn’t matter how good the song is. With that being said I decided to learn as much as I could about the entire process. Throughout my journey I fell in love with mixing and producing and have made that my primary focus. I’m currently trying to make engineering my full time profession and I’m looking forward to working with new and creative artist while expanding my client list.
