Dave Way on SoundBetter

4x Grammy winner Dave Way has dozens of multi platinum credits and hits: MJ, Fiona Apple, Pink, Phoebe Bridgers, Weird Al, Ziggy Marley, Kesha, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Jakob Dylan, Christina Aguilera, Prince, TLC, Spice Girls, Guy, and MANY more. “My broad experience and love of music helps me bring out what is unique in each project.”

I’ve mixed a lot of records over the years, with a lot of success. My state of the art Dolby ATMOS equipped studio enables me to do pretty much everything from soup to nuts and I have long time relationships with the finest musicians in L.A.

I’m fortunate to have had success in most every style: Pop, rock, hip hop, Americana, Soul, Singer/songwriter, Jazz, Film scores, television. I particularly specialize in pop music but I do enjoy projects that are unusual and unique.

The price quotes are just a ballpark but since I’m
new to SoundBetter, I’m hoping a discount rate will get the ball rolling and connect me with people looking to work with a pro. Once I know more specifics about your project, we can hopefully find a suitable rate.

    I went with Dave because I wanted to work with someone at the top of the industry who I could rely upon. My track now sounds significantly better from my rough mix, and he was able to guide me with his years of experience and good taste. I am happy with my final product. Dave answered all my questions up front to help put me at ease making the investment. Good communication and reasonable turnaround times. Lots of details in his mix which help bring it to life. Good work, Dave!

    Working with Dave was a blast! He's like the final form of Luke Skywalker from Episode 8. A true master of his domain with infinite wisdom to execute your vision. I could achieve objective production alternatives because of his sharp insight behind the boards. If you're hands-on like me, working online could be a bit of a challenging process to create. However, with Dave, the process was manageable and engaging. I was able to learn and experience a genuine connection from a Jedi.

    Priceless.

    Mixing my Rock and Roll song Dave Way did not settle for anything less than perfection.
    He was able to find immediate solutions for the things I brought up and he also kindly offered to update some parts with his tasty own twist.
    The clarity from the mix is amazing and the master was excellent right away with no revisions needed!
    Working with Dave Way was a great journey, he really delivered with his mixing and mastering and made this title something very special !!!

    I put words to music. That’s pretty much the gist of it. So whenever I get creative input on what can actually make my music better, along with the mixing, I’m very happy. Dave did this on our first track, with great results. I’m looking forward to sending more work, and seeing what he comes up with. Highly appreciated Dave.

    Dave was really great to work with! This was a pretty involved project with (10) songs that I think were pretty hard to mix. Dave did a really great job not only mixing the tracks in a way that made them sound fuller, more professional, and more focused, but also would offer ideas or sounds that really made the songs better.

    Turnaround times were fast, but not at the expense of quality, and it was easy to go back and forth asynchronously. Would def work with Dave again and highly recommend.

    Dave made magic with my track, bringing extra power and precision to its sound and mix. It sounds far better than what I heard in my head. And Dave worked quickly, responding with perspective and revisions on a tight turnaround. I'll be sending more to Dave.

    I was incredibly fortunate to have Dave work on one of my tracks. He took the song to a whole another level and knew exactly what it needed. Additionally, he was flexible working with my schedule and was very easy to communicate with. Overall, it was a privilege having him work on my song and I look forward to sending him more material! Thank you Dave.

    This was my second time working with Dave and it reminded me just how great my first experience was. He is super quick and thorough in his responses, always delivers exactly what I ask for, and adds his own special touches and ideas to the song in the mix that brings it to another level. Can’t recommend him highly enough. You’re the best Dave!!!

    Its not everyday you get to work with someone who has this much experience. Needless to say I had high expectations and Dave delivered and then some! He brought the song to life giving each element a place to sit comfy and add to the song as a whole. Really happy with his mix, and so are my band mates and I can't wait to release this track! Thank you Dave, would highly recommend!

    Dave saved my EP, he mixed 2 songs I'd previously had mixed by a top producer but wasn't 100% satisfied with the results. Dave more than beat the mix on the first pass. He added a creative spark, a polished sheen, and an edge, all while nailing my mix tweaks with a lightning quick turnaround. Moreover, he has a kind and professional demeanor. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and look forward to working again with him in the future!

    I cannot recommend Dave Way highly enough. He nailed everything I asked of him, breathed a fresh creative spark into the mix, and was very prompt, kind, and professional in his responses. He is truly a class act. I look forward to working with him again as soon as possible.

    I came to Dave with a track that had become a staple of the band's live set that needed a remix. He got it there on the first mix, was quick and precise with the revisions I sent, and I'm thrilled with where we got the track

    Another brilliant mix from Dave. His creativity permeates through his work. He not only tightened up my production/tracking work, but pulled instruments in and out to make the final sonic palette far richer and way more dynamic than I had it. Dave is also a really nice guy to deal with, which made the whole process even more enjoyable.

    Dave is an incredible professional and worked closely with us to execute our vision for our song. His ability to transform an idea into a fully produced song is incredible to be a part of and we hope to work with Dave for a long time! Can't recommend him enough

    I mean, it's Dave Way! The guy is a living legend in the mixing world and the fact that he has made himself available to unsigned artists at what would be a considerably reduced rate speaks volumes to the sort of person he is. Dave delivered an incredible mix for me. You can see that he thought it through in depth and used his years of experience to add in all the mixing tricks it needed to make the song pop. I will be using him again as soon as I have another song ready.

    Dave is extraordinary. His aesthetic and sensibilities are as artistic and modern as it gets. He took a difficult track and made it sound amazing straight away. A huge honor and pleasure to work with. Really hope to work together again one day.

    Working with Dave was fantastic. As soon as he sent me a mix I knew I had made the right choice - I was completely blown away. Not only did he pay careful attention to the notes, references, and rough mix I had sent him, he took things much further in a way that could only come from an enormous amount of wisdom and experience.

    If you want your song to be the best version of itself and translate effortlessly, go with Dave. Simple as that. I will definitely be sending more projects his way.
