Remote Mixing & Mastering

Deadhorse Audio on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm David "Smout" Martin. I specialise in mixing punk, metal and rock. I'll help you take your songs to the next level.

I have a keen ear for what's good or bad, and am a stickler for detail. I'll make sure I get every last bit of goodness out of a recording session, and translate that into a great mix.
Use me for your mastering and I will guarantee you consistency across your album, in terms of tone, dynamics and volume. Don't become a victim of the loudness wars. I'll make your songs loud, but never so loud that they lose dynamics or punch.
I have played in bands, writing, & recording for over 30 years. I've been professionally mixing for the last 10 years, and mastering for the last five.

Send me a note through the contact button above.
