I have worked as a full-time recording, mixing and mastering engineer, producer, and pianist for over 25 years in the Hollywood area. I taught recording and mixing at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Extension for 10 consecutive years. I taught mixing, Cubase and Reason at the Musician’s Institute for one year.
I've mixed and mastered 38 songs that have been released by "Bone thugs N Harmony" alone. Other recent clients include "Do or Die". "Crucial Conflict" and Pharcyde.
Along with teaching I also produced a bestselling video series entitled “The Basics of Home Recording”, which was distributed to 4,000 stores in the United States. Volume 4: "The Complete Guide to Mixing" has become an industry standard.
Currently, I am the senior producer, board operator and on-air talent for a top talk show on the entertainment industry called "Samm Brown's for the Record". It includes my segment "Dave Banta's Home Recording Tips and Advice". The show airs on KPFK-FM every Thursday at 8 p.m. Pacific Standard Time 90.7FM Hollywood/L.A., 93.7FM San Diego, 98.7 FM Santa Barbara, and 99.5FM China Lake/Ridgecrest.
