Dalton "Doc" O'Conner (Audio Engineer)

IMG_0021.JPG

Hey! My name is Dalton, but I usually go by Doc. I'm an audio engineer specializing in tracking live music and mixing. I'm a guitarist and drummer of 15 years, I’ve played with countless bands across many genres and have played on many recordings. Excellent quality recording is important to me on a personal level.

My career in music grew naturally out of my lifelong love for it. I first began playing guitar in middle school, then I picked up bass and drums in high school. I started learning to record during my freshman year due to a lack of accessible recording studios in my small home town of Poplar Bluff, MO; playing in a punk band isn’t cheap for a suburban kid on a part-time McDonald’s salary. I officially went into business my sophomore year while taking a job working sound at a local music venue. After many phones calls to professionals, blogs, videos, and tedious trial and error, I began to be able to navigate the treacherous waters of audio engineering.

Over the past decade, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a myriad of genres, from traditional country to emotional hardcore and hip hop. I’ve also had the pleasure of mixing front of house for numerous national artists, including Memphis May Fire, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s, A Plea For Purging, For Today, Convictions, Spoken, Life on Repeat, and Wolves at the Gate. I’ve produced and mixed for clients all over the Midwest and even worked on a tracking/mixing project from England. I’ve also served as an audio engineer and worship leader in multiple churches over the last decade; I’m currently serving at Live Church in Republic, MO.

Music is my life and passion and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. If you’re looking for someone who knows music, instruments, tone, and will work hard to see your vision for your art come alive, I’m your guy.
