Experienced Mix Engineer

Devon Kirkpatrick on SoundBetter

Hi! I'm a studio veteran of 28 years. I started my career at Unique Recording Studios NYC '96-'97 before moving on to become a senior staff assistant at Sony Music Studios NYC '97-'99. I moved back to my home town and established my own commercial recording studio in 1999. I am also a Valedictorian Full Sail graduate and a GRAMMY voting member.

My biggest credit is as the Assistant Engineer and Pro Tools Editor for Lauryn Hill's "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill". I have also worked on sessions with Jay Z, Nas, Alicia Keys, Pharrell, Timbaland, DMX, Mary J. Blige, Aaliya, Backstreet Boys, Marilyn Manson, KRS-1, etc.

At my studio I have had GRAMMY nominations for my work in the RAP category for Mystikal's "Tarantula", and in the Best Traditional Gospel category for The Williams Brothers "The Journey Continues".

I have worked with almost all of the major Rap & R&B artists that have come out of Baton Rouge (Jigga City) in the last 20 years. Including artists like Lil Boosie, Kevin Gates, Level, T-Bo, etc.

I do all of my mixing in the A room of my studio. It is a Pro Tools (HDX) based room. I use a hybrid mixing approach featuring my API 1608 II console.

Services offered are Mixing and Mastering in all genres. I have extensive experience using Auto Tune and Melodyne but have found over the years it is best to have the artist present when making some decisions. Having said that I am open to editing and crafting a vocal sound working with clients remotely.

I currently do not have any playlists of my work to share as I've been doing this since before they existed ..I have always relied on word of mouth. I will post some examples asap.
