Dave Pensado is one of the recording industry’s preeminent mix engineers. With multiple Grammy nominations and wins under his belt, Dave has had an astounding career. Christina Aguilera, Pink, Shakira, Beyoncé, Flo Rida, Afrojack, Frank Ocean, and more are a fraction of the superstars who keep Dave on speed dial. From pop to hip hop, country to Latin, and R&B to alternative, Dave’s special niche is making radio-friendly records while enhancing artistic intent.

In 2010, Dave and his manager started a web series entitled Pensado's Place. The show is wildly popular, is seen in over 150 countries by 600,000 people a month, and is used as curriculum in over 100 colleges around the globe. Every week audio artisans who work with superstars like Coldplay, Kanye West, Rascal Flatts, and more join Dave to discuss all things audio. The show has been featured in Forbes, Huffington Post, Boston Globe, and Last Call with Carson Daly among others.

With all the success, what is Dave’s favorite part of his career? "Nothing is better than being able to teach," says Pensado. "The ability to share and watch it positively impact a life is incredibly powerful." It’s that ethos that makes Dave so revered by his peers and makes him a legend to his fans.
