Don Smith, Music Producer/Engineer/Mixer is know to many in this business as 'Golden Ears'. A lover of music myself I do know that Don has this magic ability to hear the most faint mistakes and create it into something powerful, crazy, and wonderful. His style is always creative as he will recycle objects into the mix that finish with such an awesome sound. His been around to experience some of the changes in our music world and has worked with amazing musicans. He is a true music genius.
If only ears could tell.
