Beginning at the ripe old age of 19, Rob began his career at the world famous Record Plant Studios in Sausalito, CA. At the time, The Plant was considered one of the world’s finest recording and mixing facilities, catering to a who’s who of legendary artists, musicians, producers and engineers. The perfect environment for the habitually habitual Rob to learn and absorb from the consummate professionals plying their craft day in and day out.
Music mixed and mastered by Rob has appeared in hundreds of trailers, promos, music libraries, video games, and TV shows.
Here are some of his featured works.
“I have always been impressed with Rob’s intimate knowledge of 100s of plug-ins and his ultimate collection of pricey complicated out-board pieces of rack gear but what has set him above his peers is the musical way in which he uses them. To have someone understand musically what you are trying to achieve by getting in your head and joining forces with you to help you reach those goals is all you ever want as a creative person. He is first a musician always keeping that perspective, not afraid to break the rules and always looking to tackle something challenging. He has helped me shape ground-breaking recordings for a long time and will forever be my go-to mixing and mastering engineer.”
“Rob is the quintessential professional, and we’ve had the pleasure of trusting him with our mixes and masters at Brand X for nearly a decade. He’s easy to work with, fast, efficient, and produces a product that stands apart from the pack each and every time.”
“I used to mix everything Brand X released. Mixing often took me longer than writing the piece itself! Then I met Rob. Huh? What took me so long??? Rob’s mixes not only sounded better than mine, I now can spend more time writing and less time fussing! Needless to say, I do not mix anymore. Thanks Rob.”
Rob Beaton has become a “go-to” solution to mix projects for Position Music. Once our composers work with him, they don’t want to have their music mixed by anyone else!
