ABOUT THE STUDIO
all music is unique
I want you to reach your goals, whatever they are.
Whether it’s to get signed to a label, get a million streams on Spotify, or to make music that is part of your legacy, I’m here to support you every step of the way. I’ve helped others achieve all these things and I want to help you too!
As an artist, it’s easy to ONLY focus on making a great sounding song. We can get caught up in the technical aspects of the creation process and it drains us of creativity – which is reflected in our songs. It doesn’t take long before one loses sight of the big picture and forgets why they wrote the song in the first place!
I’m here to help you stay effortlessly creative by taking care of all the technical aspects of the music making process so you can simply create great sounding art.
By making sure every detail of your song sounds the best it can possibly be, we setup a great foundation to help you build momentum and achieve your goals.
Mixing/Mastering Engineer, Producer
About The Studio
Bobby produced every aspect of our last album: engineering, mixing, and mastering. We had a very strong vision of the album, and the fact that Bobby is also an incredibly talented musician made communicating these nuances painless. He’s an amazing producer and we couldn’t be happier about how perfect the album is.
Raytown Productions is an online mixing, mastering and production studio in outskirts of Washington, DC operated by Bobby Balow. Building significant momentum on the east coast, Bobby has been composing and performing music for over 15 years and understands the needs of a recording musician. Bobby connects with artists to ensure the vision of each song has been captured and brought to life.
Bobby also launched the Raytown Productions Blog, an online educational platform providing top-quality tutorials and tips for musicians, producers, and home studio owners looking to take their music to the next level.
Bobby works with many diverse musicians, with musical tastes ranging from pop, hip hop and indie to rock, metal, dub and reggae. No project is too abstract! If you have an idea, it can reach it’s greatest potential at Raytown Productions.
Don’t take our word for it, let your ears be the judge: listen to our before and after song mixing and mastering services now!

Creative additions to your songs will help separate your band from the crowd. Pitch correction, harmony generation and alignment, restructuring, and rearrangements are at the heart of Raytown Productions. Poorly recorded drum tracks can be enhanced by blending or replacing with one or more of our drum samples from our vast library of drum sounds for all genres taking your music to the top of the charts. We offer reamping services to help make your bass or guitar DI tracks more powerful and thick. Bobby works with you to push your musical abilities to their limit.

We also have tools to add harmonies, strings sections, pianos, bass drops, samples, live guitar, bass and drums, etc. We do it all: your imagination is the limit!
