I am a producer, mix engineer, and musician based in London.
GhostMachine studios specialises in remote mixing and mastering, as well as production for all genres from pop to hip hop to rock and metal.

The mixing studio is based on a high-end Pro Tools HD and SSL summing setup.
With this hybrid setup I am able to get the best of both analog and digital worlds.

I am able to work to any budget in order to fulfil you needs for a professional mix and master.
If your budget permits large format vintage SSL 4000e console mixing is available.

Believing communication is the key, I work with email to ensure all needs are met and offer unlimited revisions - I strive to make sure you are 100% happy with the end result.

    I really want to type a longer review, but the site limits length of reviews... When I first started working with Darren (mix/master), I had no idea that the final product would be to the level he ended up achieving. My project was black/death metal and Darren ended up turning it into a masterpiece worthy of the greatest studios. Well done, man!
