I am not an engineer who bought his way into owning a studio. I earned it. I learned from scratch, started with nothing and now I’m here. A quality engineer has plenty of experience. You can’t buy that. All the gear in the world won’t make you a good engineer.
As technology advances, recording has become more and more accessible. Tons of facilities exist that are capable of turning out an acceptable product. The search for a studio is not only finding a quality studio, but also an engineer who shares your musical interests, goals, and ideas. Someone who is willing to see a project through from beginning to end.
Yes, your end product will be comparable to other modern day recordings. Yes, it will be of top quality. Yes, it will be professional. Yes, I have the knowledge and gear to make it happen. Those are the easy questions. The more difficult job of audio engineers are: Are they efficient? Are they always thinking ahead, allowing for minimal downtime? Are they communicating clearly? Do they remain positive, even if things don’t go as planned? Are they able to be transparent as to not alter the original idea the artist is trying to present? Are they able to offer advice and input when needed? Do they work with you and they don’t boss you around to push their own ideas? Are they organized? Are they willing to go above and beyond for your project if needed? Are they clear and upfront about their prices? To all of these, I can answer an absolute yes.
Whether you’re new to the studio or a seasoned veteran, you’ll have my respect, creative input, and hardworking mindset. If it is your first time to the whole professional studio, don’t be afraid to ask for help. I’m more than happy to answer and questions and guide you through the whole process. The last thing I want is to sit back and take your money while watching you get frustrated. You’re going to be treated you like you should be treated. You’re paying money for studio services. The last thing you want is an overly expensive engineer or big name to not give a damn about your project. I give each project the attention it deserves.
