David Pettit on SoundBetter

My goal in every mix or master is to make sure that the best qualities are brought out of the music and that the artist is ecstatic!

I have engineered, mixed, and mastered for major and indie label artists such as A$AP Rocky, Natalie Imbruglia, Travis Scott, Motion City Soundtrack, Bow Wow, and Spank Rock. My engineering work and love for music also extend to classical music where I have recorded albums for the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Westminster Choir, and the American Boy Choir.

My career started off at the famed Quad Studios in NYC working with top level hip-hop and pop artists. Nowadays when I"m not at Jungle City Studios then you can usually find me at any one of the many great studios in New York or Philly.

Looking forward to helping you get the highest quality out of your project!

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

    Working with David was an absolute pleasure. He completely exceeded our expectations with his mix and master of our track. Throughout the whole process he was nothing but professional, friendly and courteous and always prompt with communication. I would not hesitate whatsoever to use David's services and will definitely be back to hire him again in the future!

    Beautiful mastering job! Nailed the eqs and the dynamics. Very happy with what David sent back. Will be my go to person for mastering henceforth.

    David was able to make perfect improvements at the mastering stage that would normally have been done at the mixing stage and saved me hundreds of dollars in the process. David uses the highest end in the box plugins and can perform revisions very economically (doesn't have to recalibrate outboard gear from scratch.) I look forward to working with him again.

    This was the best $70 I ever spent on Soundbetter. R David Pettit is one of the truly great talents on this site. He did a significant remix for me after I corrected mistakes I myself had made with VST instrument programming. It was an absolute bargain: showing once again the advantage of in the box mixing. He can pick up exactly where he left off without having to charge for time spent recapturing external analogue settings. Sounds incredible!

    David does world class mastering for a fraction of the price and he delivers very quickly. David also helped me reverse engineer some of my favorite songs and taught me some great mixing secrets behind their production. He really knows his stuff.
