Your music deserves a professional experience without having a professional budget, understanding and accepting the evolution of sound, realizing that the results, the feelings and the immortality it gives both the creators and the consumers are the only things that matters when it comes down to commercialization. I CAN MAKE THAT HAPPEN
You probably won't read to this point but since you are here then ill make it short and straight to the point. I am an audio engineer and producer with over ten years of experience. I mix fully ITB and my summing goes through dangerous box (i love the roundness). Asides preamps and a summing mixer, I don't own other analogue gears and i don't believe they make mixes better if there's anything to them ill say its a different approach in creating records as i fully believe the results on ones musical product is all that matters, how the creator feels and what the listener interprets. The upper side of not owning gears is I get to give you premium quality without the price tag that necessarily comes with it. whooop you made it to the end!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
