Anthony Shackell on SoundBetter

Remote mixing, mastering, trumpet and electric bass work in most genres! Specializing in Reggae, Jazz, Soul, Indie, and Singer-Songwriter styles. Demo is of an engineering, mixing, and mastering project.

Remote trumpet and electric bass work backed by years of live performance and recording experience. 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.

I hold a combined degree in Music and Computer Science from the University of Victoria in Canada, and have been playing music for over a decade.

  1. Review by Amanda Dundas

    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.

  2. Review by Aidan Engel

    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!
