DCross on SoundBetter

I am an award-winning engineer and producer that has mixed many radio singles and whole projects. My most recent award was a gold plaque and a hot 100 billboard award for Smile by Lil Duval and Snoop Dog. I mix multi-genre, and I can help you bring your vision to life.

I am a professional mixing engineer currently residing in Los Angles with over 15 years of experience in creating records. Now I mix for labels and indies as well as work with NCredible entertainment and the Hip Hop Caucus where I edit a weekly podcast.

Interview with DCross

  6. A: I have 2 setups a home setup where I mix thru Pro-Tools and my tonelux 16 channel mix and the studio setup where I mix through a SSL Matrix2.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: I listen to the song maybe 5-7 times first and understand what the artist is presenting then I identify the strong and weak points of the song and try to make the weak parts better. I reference other songs that are close in style so I can make sure the levels are accurate and then I begin to stem the audio through my mixer so I can level the song. I compress and eq as needed then I add the sweet stuff like reverb and harmonizers to make the records glue together sonically.
