Mark Pistel on SoundBetter

Experienced producer, mix and mastering engineer based in San Francisco with great gear, a room full of vintage analog synths and 30 years of production credits to my name.

I specialize in indie electronic dance music (house, techno, dub) but also work in many other genres, ( Americana, hard rock, indie rock, Industrial, etc).
I can do remote mixing/mastering or invite clients to attend sessions if they are local.

I take a low key no BS approach to working with clients. Ultimately it's your music and I'm here to help you realize your vision.

My private studio, Room 5, is filled with top shelf gear, including a large selection of vintage analog synths and drum machines. Mini Moog Model D, Arp 2600, Oberhiem OBXA, Roland System 100, A Serge modular system and much more!
Preamps from Neve, API, Telefunken and Amek.
Mics from Neumann, AKG, Royer, Shure and Sennheiser.
Compressors from API,Summit, UA and DBX.
Room 5 also has a great sounding live room for drum tracking.

    I can't recommend Mark enough. He worked wonders on my track and only one revision needed to get it spot on. He knew exactly what was needed ! Great communicator and if you know his previous works you'll know what an amazing producer / engineer he is. Look forward to working with him again .
