Dereck Tabata on SoundBetter

I've been a musician for over 25 years. Tracking and mixing for over 10 years. I write, arrange and compose for just about any genre of music. My influences vary widely from rock royalty artists like Van Halen to film composers like James Newton Howard. Regardless of the music scenario, I work with artists to get the best out them and their music.

I help artist bring out the best in themselves and their music. I specialize with artist beginning their musical journey that need guidance and mentoring to get them off on the right foot. Collaborative song writing, mixing, and remote session work with guitar and keyboard represent my strengths.

I use the various tools to get the round sound happening. Native Instruments, EastWest Sound, Audient, Eventide, TC Electronic, STL Tones, Reaper, Waves, Plugin Alliance, Yamaha, RODE, Shure, James Tyler Guitars and Blankenship Amps are my main tone generators and manipulators.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
