Mixing Engineer/Sound designer

droweaudio on SoundBetter

Sound designer and mixing engineer working to clarify audio for artists and visual media platforms. I have worked as the sole audio lead on albums, animations, and video games. My goal is to help artist get professional help at a price that is most affordable for them because everyone deserves to have their art in the best quality possible

I can work help to make music of any genre sound much better as well as compose for instruments seeing as I have also made arrangements for violin ensembles, saxophone quartets, and percussion ensembles. I have mixed music for indie rock albums, country, hip-hop, jazz, and classical. My experience as for music is very versatile and diverse because I see working in all genres as a learning experience that only perpetuates better results. Now I have also worked on many songs in 5.1 surround sound which is actually the thing that has piqued my interest in animation and video games. I have worked as the main audio lead on multiple animations as well as creating original sound effects for a video game. I am someone who is willing to do anything for the benefit of the project and I am always open to trying new things at any moment.
