Rich mixes full of character and beauty. I'll mix and master your songs with care and respect for your vision while I add professionalism and depth to their sonic makeup. Quick communication takes priority. I love working with gritty textures and songs with character.
I'm a remote mixing and mastering engineer located in Seattle, Washington. I specialize in broadly alternative music, including indie, punk, metal, folk, and experimental genres. If you're a DIY musician with a beautifully imperfect home recording in need of a facelift, I'm your person. I'll mix and master your music to a professional standard while keeping its true spirit intact.
I work in the box, using Logic Pro X and a variety of industry standard plugins by Waves, Izotope, and others.

3 ReviewsEndorse Sam Hendricks
Came to Sam with a song I needed mixed and mastered at the very last minute. He not only came through time-wise, but did a great job on the mix! He was able to take the descriptions of what I was looking for and get the perfect result! I would definitely work with him again in the future.
I had a batch of demos that I personally recorded somewhat slapdash and had no intention of showing to anyone due to their *rough* nature. Sam came through and changed ALL that by bringing the recording way up in standards. He was easy to work with and listened intently to what I wanted. I was super happy with the final product and would definitely work with Sam again in the future.
Did good work on some songs I recorded and needed mixing. Worked fast and able to make changes as I requested. I would definitely ask Sam to do mixing again.
