I’m a session bassist-composer turned professional producer and mixer.
With an in-depth knowledge of the entire music process, I can understand the need for songwriters and bands to bring their art to the next level.
Specialising in the pop, rock, blues and songwriter genres, I bring a solid foundation to your art.
Recordist, Producer and Mixer
Above all, I capture and balance all the elements in your song, bringing clarity and definition.
I polish your music, check the quality and make sure the material is approved for public release.
Also, I have experiences in different audio production workflows, like game sound design, animation soundtrack, podcasts or sound effect creation and editing.
It depends on the nature of the job.
I break down the project before it starts. Using an online form designed to collect as many information as possible from the client, I try to solve all the potential grey areas.
I work using accurate estimates to build efficient tasks, defined and mutually accepted upfront.
Whether the job is remote or not, I involve the client from the start by providing full real-time access to my workflow. It’s a great way to reassure the client that I’m going to execute their vision, and deliver on time.
I’m in Cambridge, UK. Therefore, I can efficiently serve the Cambridge/London area. I can also offer attended sessions, or come to your place with my mobile setup.
Of course. We can work together, regardless of where you are. I’m well versed in remote working, after many years delivering for multiple industries.
I have an established professional workflow, evolved in years of experience with clients all over the UK and overseas. My goal is to avoid working in isolation. I love to have my customers directly involved and happy to know where I am in the production of their art.
I don’t mind experimental electronic material and synths, I use them myself in my compositions sometimes, but as a recordist and mixer, I do specialise in everything acoustic. Rock, blues, pop, funk, reggae, folk, singer-songwriter, modern classical and a few others.
Yes! I can serve the Cambridge/London area as a live session bassist. I can also record bass tracks for your music in the studio, whether you provide a written score or not.
Yes. I have a vast experience in related fields such as sound design, effects, Foley, animation soundtrack, game audio, audio synchronisation and editing, audio tuning and correction, drum doubling and drum replacement.
While I worked with analogue equipment in the past, I’ve been using digital equipment for almost two decades.
My current studio is centred on my two Focusrite Pro devices. Everything is converted from analogue to digital using the Saffire Pro 40. The workstation is a maxed out 2015 MacBook Pro i7.
I mix and master in the box, completely in the digital domain.
For listening, I use two different pairs of speakers. I work on the Focal Alpha 80; I test on the Yamaha HS5. Headphones in use: Beyerdynamic 770 Pro and AKG K240.
A few SansAmp DIs are available for bass and guitar, along with a series of microphones, large/small diaphragm and dynamic. I also use a Zoom H5 with two different stereo mics (XY and shotgun) for ambience live recording.
My bass guitars are a 1991 Warwick Thumb and a more recent Fender Jazz fretless. A Fender Stratocaster electric guitar is also in the studio.
The room’s acoustic treatment is from GIK Acoustic.
Logic Pro X is my DAW, since the eMagic years. I currently use the version 10.4.x on macOS 10.14 (Mojave).
Many plugins are available, both as software instruments and effect/processors. My usual go-to plugins, besides many Logic stock ones, are:
- Tokio Dawn‘s TDR Nova GE Edition
- Tokio Dawn‘s TDR Limiter 6 GE Edition
- Soundtoys 5
- Addictive Piano and Addictive Drums from XLN Audio
- EastWest Hollywood Strings Gold for modern orchestral material
Yes. I’ve spent a long time perfecting my backup and archive strategy. I believe audio archiving is a must-have feature to offer to clients. It allows for a future remix or remasters. Every single project is carefully filed to guarantee the preservation of the material for years to come.
