Attention to detail
Providing a HQ product
I can take your demo and turn it into a real song or we can start a song completely from scratch. I have the ability to add live instrumentation. I can provide additional production to an existing song. If you are in Los Angeles area we can meet in person at my studio to work together.
I can get your song radio ready. I do all means necessary to improve the mix. I can tighten up vocals and tune if the job calls for it. I am detailed in mixing vocals to give them a pop sheen like top radio hits. I can help make your drums punch and groove. I am able to give each sound their distinct place in the mix not just with volume but also width and depth in the stereo field along with any FX processing. My years of experience as a producer and DJ provides me with a skillset that many mix engineers don't have. I strive for a clear, balanced and grooving mix that feels good.
In mastering I process your song so it has clarity and translates well on all systems, has the right vibe/feel/tone/emotion, give it the final level boost to compete with commercial songs in the genre. I also provide stem masters if you feel your mix needs a little help.

Ken was a pleasure to work with! Great communication and so patient with me throughout the project. Super receptive to all my little changes and gave me helpful feedback to declutter some of the messiness that I wasn't hearing. Highly recommend!
Excellent work. Obviously, that’s why I came back a second time, and hopefully will come back again and again and again and again because his work is phenomenal.
I asked Ken to mix & master 3 tracks with an extremely fast turn-around. He went above & beyond delivering on time with beautiful sounding masters. He understands the nuances of audio mixing & how to really make the instrumentation & vocals shine in a way I could only dream of!
Ken is the man, always on point. He's got the skills 🔥
Ken did an amazing job! Delivered the quality master I was looking for.
Working with Ken has been great. He really cares about the final product and will work with you to make sure the mix is up to par before mastering. Learned so much from the insight he provided and will now apply to future mixes to make the handoff smoother. Completely nailed the mastering style I requested and was happy to make edits where requested.
Would highly recommend for producers and engineers who might need that final mix critique before submitting to mastering.
Ken is an incredible engineer, his perspective and ears really helped me sculpt the sound into something I couldn't imagine at first! It sounds incredible now.
Ken did a great job mixing and mastering my track. He was patient and flexible through a few rounds of revisions and I'll def be tapping Ken for my next project. Thanks!
Ken was very helpful and understanding throughout the process. The product came out amazing, and I look forward to working with him again!
