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!

    As usual Dave's mix was clear and huge! All the track's we've had mixed by Dave sound consistent and bring out the best of the production.

    If you find a really good engineer they are worth their weight in gold.

    David is just such an engineer.

    Did a incredible job! And I am picky beyond believe. Lol

    I have absolutely nothing but praise for David. He was super responsive to feedback between each iteration of the track, generously delivered even more than was initally promised, and elevated a rough mix to a well-balanced, professional, and high-quality mix with a complete mastered version alongside it. I'm excited to work with David again!

    David Pettit is the consummate professional
    his 1st mix was 95% of what i needed on my project
    and more especially he nailed the lead vocal

    i highly recommend David for just about any type of music

    I have selected David to do the entire album that i am producing

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby Verified Review

    Previously I've worked with many engineers in the past. But after working with David, I made the decision to only send my work to him from now on. This guy is "a beast"! Worth every dollar.

  • Listing_thumb_i_am_rectangle5 months agoby Verified Review

    Absolutely awesome! He took a hip hop track I produced to the next level. Tight and punchy bottom end, crisp highs, nice stereo balance, all vocals up front, great use of effects, and has a nice energy to it. Very, very happy with this!!

    Once again R David Pettit has fully realized my vision for a song. If you compose classical music using orchestral software as I do, but also like to throw in live acoustic performances - he's your guy!

  • Listing_thumb_burningwilltolive7 months agoby Verified Review

    Once again R. David Pettit has taken one of my humble compositions and turned it into a juggernaut of awesomeness!

  • Listing_thumb_burningwilltolive9 months agoby Verified Review

    I was aware of Dave's work going all the way back to the early 1990's, when Whale's Hobo Humpin Slobo Babe, a song he engineered, was a huge hit at nightclubs. Even Beavis and Butt-Head loved that song. Dave has gone on to engineer many large scale classical music projects. I'm 100% happy with the work he's done on my music.

    He's the best.

    Absolute pleasure to work with David, turnaround was super fast, tweaks done accurately, and the whole mix had Davids own twist to it. Cannot reccomend him enough.
