Charles Sublette on SoundBetter

I've helped hundreds of artists hear the potential of their music. Let me power up your next project.

Hi, I'm Charles,
I've been working in the music industry for 10 years. I've in worked multiple of genres from hip hop, punk, to indie pop. I played Warped Tour when I was sixteen and graduated from Beatlab Academy engineering school in Los Angeles California. In 2018 I opened my own physical recording studio, Studio Z. I've helped local artists garnish hundred of thousand of streams as well as making a compelling sound design that has reached over a million people.
My own project Zard also has garnished over 100000 streams on all platforms in its first year.

Now I'm bringing what I learned in my career to you.

I also offer powerful mastering techniques that use serval different mastering chains to bring every inch of your sound to maximum clarity. I make sure that clients' db levels are concurrent with all streaming platforms so you don't lose the quality of your sound.

~~~1 year anniversary update ~~~

Thank you to the many ppl that have used my services! I have been on Soundbetter now for over a year. So glad to be part of this community!
