RECORDING/TRACKING

Analogue guy living in a digital world

 

Ive always been a fan of classic outboard gear, however, I firmly believe that owning expensive gear isn't the difference maker.  What is key is our ears, knowledge, experience and craft. Im an in-the-box recording, mixing and mastering engineer that utilises the industry leading software, plugins and hardware that does not compromise creativity and workflow. I liken recording to photography, im in the business of staging audio snapshots in ToneCrafters Studio, Houston.

Feast our ears on good quality audio!

MIXING

Developing musical personas

 

Ive been known to bring clarity to mixes and deliver a large console sound at a cost that is wallet friendly.  I was born and raised in England to West Indian Parents, studied and trained in generally a British and European approach of mix production in London. Since I have emigrated to Houston, Texas I've continue to expand eclectic taste in music and therefore develop North American approaches and styles. I believe that my eclectic musical taste, knowledge and ability to listen may allow me an asset to your production desires.

Interested in capturing the sound you desire...?

The Beginning of The End 

Mastering is the final part of the process that can make or break your masterpiece.  The goal is to take your mix and balance and enhance aspects of a audio track with the sonic character.  By adjusting certain various levels to "sweeten" a mix, I aim to make your craft capture your vision and impact the audiences its suppose to target.

Below are some examples of mix and mastering projects Ive worked on recently..


Engineering Dynamic Experiences

 

Every week Im blessed to be out of the studio and engineer at venues in and around Houston.  I work with bands, orchestras, theatre production or conference events.  I also provide recording, mixing and mastering services.
