I am a mixing engineer based in LA; I specialize in rock and electronic music.
Before I started working as an mixer and engineer, I was pursuing a career a composer. This has caused me to approach mixing and producing from the mindset of a writer rather than that of a technician. I approach every mix with the same amount of thought and emotion that you did putting it together.

Reviews (1)Endorse Calum Brockie
Cal pegs himself to be an engineer but his abilities exceed that of an ordinary mixing engineer. He is the most insightful, creative and talented engineer & producer I have ever worked with and his work is nothing short of professional. He is a patient perfectionist, easygoing and usually has better ideas than you do for your own project. He is a joy to work with and someone you can truly trust.
