Offering music recording and mixing services.
Wanna make a record? Looking for some fiddle overdubs? Perhaps a string section? Got some tracks you want mixed? Anything else?
Contact me here.
It all started in the late 90’s with a Tascam Portastudio 4 track cassette recorder and an SM57. Then, a ½ inch tape machine, more mics, digital interfaces, better mics, better preamps….
I’ve got a pretty sweet setup here that’s been a work in progress ever since. A lot of industry standards to date including 16 Channel Lynx Aurora, Pro Tools (with a range of mixing plug-in tools), U87, Royer 122, Pearlman Tube, Blue mics, Vintage Seinnhesiers, a freezer bag full of sm57’s, LA601, some Great River pre’s, Sytek, Pendulum, CAPI 500 series, to name a few. Balwin piano, vintage Wurlizter EP, Leslie 147, drum kit and a bunch of nice stringed instruments. It’s nothing crazy, but it I know how to work it.
Lately, I’ve been using my Tascam 238 to capture bands live in their natural habitat. It’s easy to bring around, takes cassettes and sounds surprisingly not lo-fi!
Contact me here for any recording/mixing inquires.
