I've been in the audio world since 2000 and in a studio setting in 2015. I've worked with Grammy nominees in Rock/Metal, and with producers and engineers from all over the U.S. I have worked with genres including Folk, Country, Blues, Alternative, Grunge, Rock, Metal, Pop, Hip Hop, and R&B since 2015 and mastered multiple Rock projects since 2018.
I will take your session audio files and drop and organize them in Pro Tools. After having the session organized, I will begin any desired combination of the services I offer: editing, production, mixing, and mastering. If editing, I'll quantize drums, time align all instruments, vocals, and production effects, and begin the mix process, if also desired. I'll drop my plug-in templates that I've developed for 6 years and begin working from there. I have multiple templates to adapt to any genre or production, so desk time is greatly minimized in searching for the "right" sound (which in turn helps your pocket). From there, I begin the stereo and leveling process, getting everything blended smoothly. After perfecting the mix, it runs through my custom mastering chain, which has also been 6 years in the making. After getting gain structures dialed in comes crafting shimmer, dynamics, and creating a huge master track. The end product is nothing short of explosive, deep, and animated in ways most never even notice.

Interview with Nathan Walker
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I normally handle everything with the process that occurs after tracking, but not exclusively. A typical project for me begins with me editing and comping each track to as close to perfection as is achieveable. I would then normally compose the mix and master it, usually in the same process and deliver the end product promptly.
