I make things sound good

Larry Crane on SoundBetter

I'm a record producer/engineer/mixer, Tape Op Magazine founder and editor, Jackpot! Recording Studio owner, author at, and archivist for Elliott Smith. I currently do a lot of mixing projects as well as production, tracking, etc.

I have been involved in music since the late seventies, when I self-released home recordings of my own music. Since then I've been a musician, record producer/engineer/mixer, Tape Op Magazine founder and editor, book editor, studio owner, archivist, disc jockey, small label owner and even a record distributor employee. I am available for hire as a record producer, recording engineer (studio or live), mix engineer, writer, editor, archivist, lecturer or panelist. Lately I've been mixing quite a few albums for folks from all over the world and my clients have been more than happy and my rates are probably far lower than what one might expect. Drop a line if you are interested in working with me in any capacity!

My Music Production Secrets courses are now offered at These focus on recording and mixing, and cover many techniques that have taken me years to accumulate. I'm really proud of these courses and feedback has been very positive so far!

Several times a year I offer Larry Crane Weekend Recording Workshops in Portland in at Jackpot! Recording Studio. I also do One-On-One recording coaching.
