Two-time Golden Melody Award-winning and 2x Diamond engineer Scott Banks has become one of the top engineers in the field through his dedication to upholding the artistic integrity of electronic music and imprinting with his signature style.
His experience as a live musician gives him the ability to utilize distinct techniques and ideas that aren’t commonly used by most pop/dance-focused engineers.

Andy Lin is Studio DMI’s latest homegrown mixing and mastering engineer. Beginning as a student of Luca Pretolesi's while living in Taiwan, Andy committed all-in and made the move to Vegas on 2 weeks notice to serve as an assistant engineer to both Luca and Scott. Through their mentoring and training along with developing his individual style, Andy has become an exceptionally technical and detail-oriented engineer in his own right.
Despite spending most of his youth drumming, Andy thought his involvement in the arts was over after getting his computer science degree and aging out of the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps in 2008. Little did he know that a friend’s fateful invitation to a festival (EDC 2009) would result in a few years of late nights spent as a resident DJ and turn his entire career path around.
With a deep understanding of electronic music culture, Andy has the perspective to approach projects with the mindset of both an engineer and an audience member, seeking to maximize each track’s potential for emotional impact when played live. His engineering background and passion for researching new tools and techniques allow him to fit tracks into the tight sonic requirements of certain electronic sub-genres. All of these components create his unique style that is an extension of the Studio DMI signature sound. Andy’s mixing and mastering credits include Toc Tien, Touliver, Rhymastic, Marz23, Patrick Brasca, G5SH, Julia Wu, Soobin Hoang Son, Phuong Ly, and more. He has also contributed as an assistant engineer on projects for Diplo, Jolin Tsai, Daddy Yankee, Tove Lo, David Guetta, Jason Derulo, Flo Rida, Prince Royce, Willy William, Sikdope, and The Kite String Tangle.
