Simon Da Silva on SoundBetter

I'm a professional Audio Engineer specialized in Metal, Rock and Extreme Metal productions. I run my own studio - The Empty Hall - located in Madrid, Spain, where I have produced, recorded, edited, mixed and mastered hundreds of albums and EPs. Also, I have assisted and done preparation work for other renowed Audio Engineers worldwide.

Many of the albums I have fully produced or partially participated in have been released by outstanding labels such as Listenable Records, Debemur Morti Productions, Avantgarde Music, Season of Mist, Peaceville Records, I Voidhanger Records, and many more.

My services are:

✅ Professional Mixing and Mastering for Albums and EPs.

✅ Preparation and optimization of Masterings for Vinyl release.

✅ Advanced Editing: drum editing, cuantization and sampling, MIDI, vocal tuning and comping, etc.

✅ Solve format issues between files (sample rate, bit depth, mp3's, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, AAC, etc.)

✅ Audio restoration for old recordings and masterings.

✅ Podcast, Interviews and Audiobook editing and cleaning.

Prices and methodology:

Some services (as editing) are charged by the hour, but for most projects a discussion of your requierements will first be needed before an estimated price can be given. For example, for mixing and mastering projects are charged depending on the running time (minutes). Mastering is charged depending on the number of songs.

1️⃣ Don't hesitate to contact me via SoundBetter to explain your project. Good communication and in-depth conversation about your vision and needs is crucial to success.

2️⃣ After a detailed discussion, I will offer you the best solutions, estimated deadline for delivery and a precise budget.

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

  1. Review by Yulia L.

    It was a real pleasure to work with Simon and entrust him mixing and mastering of my album. He was very creative and patient in his work and now my songs have very professional and atmospheric sound. I'm happy that I found him!

  2. Review by Jason K.

    I have never used “ SoundBetter” before, this was my first experience with everything on here. I’m not sure everyone gets this lucky but Simon was a perfect match for my album. He was very communicative, assisting, and professional. I will be going back to him for future projects.
