Mixing & Mastering

Max Challis on SoundBetter

Specializing in rock/alternative, my mixing and mastering services will bring your song to life. My mixes have helped secure both label and top management deals for various artists I've worked with.

I offer remote mixing and mastering services for clients worldwide. Working from my home studio in Boston, my clients send Pro Tools sessions, stems, or WAV files, and I work tirelessly to bring the music to life until it meets the client's needs. Artists/clients will usually give me an idea for where they want their mix to go, and I send bounces until the client is 100% satisfied.

I graduated at the top of my class from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Contemporary Writing & Production, a major focussing heavily on music production and music technology, and also acquired a minor in acoustics and electronics. I also worked at a recording studio in Boston engineering on a variety of sessions for clients at the studio, and offer freelance production and engineering services for local artists.

I also offer various piano, keyboard, synthesizer, guitar, drums, and bass parts to add to your production if necessary through my connections to professional studio musicians.
