We do all the audio sh*t you don't want to do.

Rhoten Studios | Professional Mixing & Mastering

Level-Up Your Music

We understand how it feels to keep tweaking a mix because it’s just not there — at the radio-ready level.

And that’s not cool. Nobody should have to keep wasting time in the “frustration zone”, when they could be spending time working on the things that really lights them up, & makes them feel excited.

Like you, we’ve had plenty of artists come to us who have wasted so much time trying to mix & master themselves. Or even spent time with the wrong sound engineers! (*Palm to face*) 

That’s not what we want for you!

Here at RHOTEN Studios, our experienced sound engineers ask you the right questions so that we nail down your energy & vibe right away.

When working with us:

Testimonials

Satisfaction that speaks

I've tried other mixing services before, but they just couldn't make my songs sound the way I wanted them to. I was worried that I was going to have to waste even more time waiting for a studio to fix things. But Jon and his team were so fast! He knew EXACTLY what I was after, and honestly it sounds better than I imagined. Thanks guys! xoxo

If you googled 'Rock Star' Jon's picture would be there. He's incredible at what he does. He's so detailed in his approach, and very technical. If you've been dragging your feet on using RHOTEN Studios, you're missing your chance. Just get on a call, and I promise you're going to be mind-blown.
