"I hope this page will give you a little background on myself and touch on just a few of the many projects I've been involved with, and things I've done BEFORE I opened up my own facility, Alchemy Studio Ltd in 2001"

 

Personal Info:
I'm familiar with all popular mixing desks and standard outboard equipment, including, Digidesign Protools hard disk recording systems, and editing systems including Sony 1630 and of course analogue tape splicing!

I like microphones, especially old valves, play guitar and program in ProTools.
I've done a lot of different stuff, and can now bring a great deal of experience to a session, not just in the area of 'sounds' but also being able to develop an artists' own performance and song writing abilities. I got into the business to work with bands and this is still my first love. I'm good with drums and gtrs, with a lot of experience in combining people and computers.

 

Producer / Recording Engineer / Programmer / & ProTooler!
