THINGS I CAN HELP YOU WITH
or even related things like
fixing your guitar cable and other small gear repairs
consultations on recording gear
consultations on room tuning and soundproofing
I can even help you design your album art or website
During my >15 years in the audio industry
you may have heard my work
on the radio
in an advertisement
in a movie
at a house party.
But I'd rather talk with you about
your gear that isn't working
your room that doesn't sound quite right
then you can tell others yourself how I've helped you
on my behalf.
GEEK WITH ME
Just because I have a hammer doesn't make me a carpenter.
But I actually know how to use my tools (small font, lots of tools)
Lynx Aurora(n) via TB3 for lowest possible latency
Flock Audio patchbay for instant recallability
ATC SCM20ASL mains (in a well-treated room - VERY important!)
Avantone Pro MixCube Active secondary monitors
Pro Tools 2020.12 (or the latest one if I haven't had time to update this page)
Many MANY plugins (over 300)
Phoenix Audio DRS-Q4M mk2 mic preamp
John Hardy M1 x4 mic preamps
Manley Massive Passive 2-channel EQ
Pendulum Audio ES-8 2-channel compressor
Bricasti M7 (AES to the Aurora(n), remote control via plugin)
Coles 4038, Josephson C42 matched pair, Lucas CS-1, Microtech Gefell UMT70S, Sennheiser MD441, Shure: SM7/SM57/Beta 57A
Gotham and Mogami cabling throughout (mostly made by me)
I know music theory.
I am familiar with recording, editing, mixing, and mastering techniques.
(ProTools, Logic, Reason, Harrison Mixbus, all sorts of outboard gear)
I can manipulate images.
(Adobe suite, Capture One)
I'm comfortable pulling bits apart and soldering them together.
(my Hakko soldering iron was SO worth it)
Wix is pretty cool, but I remember coding websites with HotDog before WYSIWYG.
I've lived all over the world and speak a couple of the languages.
(and can count to 10 and say "thank you" in a few more)
