Anthony Shackell on SoundBetter

High-quality, remote digital mastering, mixing, trumpet, and electric bass work for clients located anywhere in the world! Specializing in Reggae, Jazz, Soul, Indie, and Singer-Songwriter genres.

All bass tracks will be sent with a DI and an Amp track that I feel is suited to the song. Trumpet tracks will be recorded through a microphone that suits the demo sent, and sent raw for further processing. Any special requests are welcome!

I hold a combined degree in Music and Computer Science from the University of Victoria in Canada, a diploma in Music Production and Recording at the University of Stavanger in Norway, and have been playing music for over a decade. I also work as a software engineer, live sound engineer, and professional musician, and write VST and AU plugins in my free time.

    I cant put into words how happy I am with Anthony's work. He understood what the project was about instantly, knew where I wanted to take it and put his own stamp on it. Exactly what I was looking for.
    10 stars my friend for a professionals job!

    Tony gets music better than anyone I know. He has a way of figuring out what you want your song to sound like, even when you don't really know yourself. He gives really excellent suggestions and guides the client towards a sound they love, while still granting them the control all musicians need when crafting their songs. This guy is the real deal, if you want your stuff to sound amazing, hire him.

    My band and I recently had the opportunity to work with Anthony. He is extremely professional and personable, which definitely contributed to an overall wonderful experience. The recording sounded awesome and he was totally receptive to our ideas and had great ideas of his own as well. Would highly recommend!
