Glen Franklin on SoundBetter

Experienced engineer, specialising in punk and heavier styles

Hi, I’m Glen Franklin, and I own and operate a fully equipped Project Recording/Mixing Studio here in inner Melbourne (Essendon), Australia and I’ve been involved in recording, playing and producing music for 30+ years.

Punk and heavier styles of music are my passion, both as an audio engineer and music fan. My recording studio specialises in these heavier genres, so I can focus my skills specifically on achieving the powerful, energetic mixes that punk and heavy music calls for.

My goal is to help bands and artists transform their songs into exceptional sounding recordings that they can be proud of, will connect with their audience and will compete with other iconic releases in the genre.

    Glens passion for music, getting the ultimate sound and attention to detail was evident from the get go. His involvement with heavier music made it easy to communicate the sound we were aiming for, and we were stoked with our recording!

    Glen always sends me great mixes to master. A lovely guy to deal with that pays a lot of attention to details. Keep up the awesome work mate.

    Glen recorded and produced our band's first EP, which will be released very soon. We are beyond stoked with the sound he captured. Patient and calm in the studio, Glen's got a great ear and a work ethic that doesn't quit until he finds your band's unique sound. Highly recommend. We'll be back for more Glen.
