Greg Bester


Greg Bester is an audio engineer and musician based in Johannesburg. Greg’s career began in 1999 in the United States, where he studied music and got his first job in audio heading up Megatön Records recording studio in Orem, Utah with wrestling great, Maxx Payne. It was only after a few short months that his promise began to show and he was promoted to the principal engineer. It was there that he received his mentorship under Maxx, and accomplished his first recordings and subsequent early albums.

Greg was a musician first, playing in bands from a young age, which eventually brought him into the world of music production, live sound, and the art of recording. This gives him a versatile edge in that he knows how to communicate with musicians/artists, aiding the translation of the music into something that matches the producer/artist/musician’s vision.

In 2003 he returned to Johannesburg, eventually settling into the Edenvale-based studio, Shifted Audio as chief engineer. There he recorded and produced a variety of genres, including: rock, African traditional, jazz, gospel, R&B, and more. In addition to music, Greg is also proficient in mixing sound for video and film both in stereo and 5.1 surround. He has worked with acts such as Zama Jobe, Erik Paliani, Mphumi Dlamini, Jay Hlungwani and Sharon Dee. In addition to mixing, Greg also offers his services as a mastering engineer. Many of the albums he has mixed he has mastered as well.
