Alastair Sims on SoundBetter

If you need your track or recordings to be tight and sound awesome, look no further. I've been working as a professional audio editor and Engineer for over a decade. RUSH, Three Days Grace, Loud Luxury and Whitechapel are just a few of the great bands and artists I've worked with. I'll give you perfectly edited drums or vocals that sound natural.

Vocal Editing
I've been recording and editing vocals for most of my career. From comping to using tuning tools like Melodyne and Auto-Tune and timing vocals to sound as natural a possible. I'll make sure to give the cleanest tightest vocals possible. You can hear my vocal editing in Loud Luxury and Nikki's Wives songs.

Instrument Editing
Any instrument you can record I can edit, clean up and put on the grid. Drums, bass, guitars and keys, anything you need edited.

Mixing
I've with a number of great mixers (Rich Chycki, Matty Green), also on projects that have been mixes by some of the industries biggest (Chris Lord-Alge, Robert Orton). Whether mixing your whole song from multi-track or just elements like vocals I'll use my extensive knowledge and techniques learned from music's top mixers to make you song shine. I will make your song ready for radio, streaming or the movie scream.
