Remote Mixing & Mastering

Deadhorse F.A.S. on SoundBetter

My name is David "Smout" Martin and I specialise in mixing punk and alternative rock. I've recently mixed the debut album and follow up EP for Randale Record's Takers & Users. I'd like to help you bring out the best in your songs with a professional and "in your face" mix.

I have a keen ear for what's good or bad, and am a stickler for detail. I'll make sure I get every last bit of goodness out of a recording session, and translate that into a great mix.
Use me for your mastering and I will guarantee you consistency across your album, in terms of tone, dynamics and volume. Don't become a victim of the loudness wars. I'll make your songs loud, but never so loud that they lose dynamics or punch.
I have played in bands, writing, & recording for over 30 years. I've been professionally mixing for the last 10 years, and mastering for the last four.
