Josh Powell on SoundBetter

I mix and engineer records. With 18 years of experience I apply my practiced, listening ear to not only making great records, but also hearing your vision for your music.

I founded and run The Map Room recording studio in Portland, Oregon. Our clients include Band of Horses, Aminé, Gossip, Other Lives, Grandaddy and so many more. I have extensive experience working on rock, singer-songwriter, pop, jazz, and soul music.

I work out of The Map Room recording studio for $60 per hour including myself as engineer and full use of the studio and instruments. I mix songs for $150 per song. The studio is full of unique and classic recording equipment, much of which I built. One-of-a-kind microphones, a gorgeous-sounding and highly modified Speck M72 console, Studer A800 tape machine and an Ecoplate plate reverb round out the lovely sound palate.

    Second time workin with Josh, and he's truly awesome to partner up with. Great communication on mixes and revisions, and he's got a really solid feel for finding depth in a mix.

    Needed a song mixed quickly and Josh did a really terrific job with it. Super easy and enjoyable to communicate with, and he found just the right kind of balance and dynamics for the song I sent.

    Do your music a favor - hire Josh.
    Josh was wonderful to work with! He mixed my latest single and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He is a true professional: talented, great communication, flexible, patient, and supportive. He made it his mission to serve my artistic vision and went above-and-beyond to raise the bar of the song. I found him very easy to work with and I’m thrilled with the quality results he delivered. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again on future projects and I hope to do so soon!

    Josh was spot on with everything I wanted, step by step. I couldn't have been happier working with someone for a first time mastering an album. I almost can't imagine working with anyone else, at least over the internet like this. He really does want to see it "your way" and does a fantastic job of working toward and complimenting your vision, as long as you know what you want! Couldn't be more happy!

    Josh is both talented and extremely easy to work with. He did a great job mixing two of my songs and brought a lot of creativity to the process. The Map Room is also an excellent studio with some cool unique gear. I was very happy with the end result. Definitely recommend.

    Josh is the complete package:
    1. An incredible engineer with really, really good taste.
    2. A professional, soft-spoken, selfless, and genuinely nice guy who works very hard to please his clients...a rare breed in the music business.

    I look forward to seeing him every time we work together and I trust him 100% with my music. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
