Dalton Allison on SoundBetter

I gained experience while being producer/engineer for Post Animal, and other artists in the Chicago/Midwest area. I have evolved into an eclectic style, blending classic sounds with modern processes to taste - often complimented on the depth and live energy of my mixes. Always down to insert myself but I know how to be transparent!

I am a mix engineer/producer, based in Chicago, IL. Most of my work has been with rock/pop-oriented bands; however, my approach is heavily-informed by an early dive into electronic music and a hybrid-workflow of analog and computer-based methods. I specialize in a heavier, pop-adjacent sound and approach ambient and dynamic effects in a very nuanced and climactic way.

My experience in various fidelity has equipped me with the tools and tricks to make any recording shine. Obsessing over production at an early age has compiled endless sounds and processes for me to share with you. If you need it - we can replace drums, layer sounds, build a tone from DI, touch-up vocals, quantize and everything in between. As an artist myself, I know that creativity is first and the best takes aren't always in the most traditional environments; so go ahead and hit record wherever/whenever you can and we will paint it up just like you pictured.

If it all clicked for you in the studio, amazing! Send the session/multitracks/stems with some references and we're good to go. I have all the tools we need to finish the job.

I don't get anything out of delivering you a product you don't like, so let me know how you really feel about it. Like everyone else, I am learning and improving every day; thanks to your feedback. Can't wait to hear from you and make something great together!

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

    There is a reason I’ve used Dalton many, many times. His skill is second to none, he brings creativity but also open to ideas and follows the brief and understands what I like. It’s great being in sync in a creative sense.

    Dalton went above and beyond with these mixes - he dealt with very complex arrangements and prioritised things in a musical and practical way that few could. It couldn’t have gone any better, and I can’t recommend him enough.

    I had Dalton master a song for me, and he did a fantastic job. My song sounds much more full, and overall better. Thanks again, Dalton, and don't forget to stream Aging Forest ;)

    Yet another amazing result from Dalton. Always cognizant about references and vibes, and always super professional. Dalton is one of those mixing engineers that you can always trust with your song because he's a talented musician himself!
