Access to world class facilities and a drive for perfection
Let me help you get the sound your songs deserve.
My name is Connor, I'm 29 and currently in my second year as a sound engineering student.I have 12 years of experience producing music, mixing and mastering included and am now pursuing a full time career in the field. I'm very passionate about electronic music, especially House but also have a love for many other genres and am confident working with anything.
Coming from a competitive and professional environment as a carpenter I am used to putting out high quality work at a high rate and am a great communicator.
As a student I currently have access to my schools brand new music studio facilities, rooms designed for mixing and mastering with large well tuned playback systems. I can work with outboard gear as well if you would like some of that analog goodness :D
I am proficient in Pro Tools, Cubase, Ableton and Audient ASP8024 desks. With me you will get good communication, fast turnover and high quality work at a low cost.

Interview with Connor Turnbull
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog is awesome sounding and a lot of fun to work with but I prefer digital for clarity and workflow. Somewhere in between is best I feel.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Relaxed and thoughtful.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Efficient workflow and an ear for detail.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Before mixing I will get reference tracks and do a lot of genre related listening. Once in the studio I order my project, do some levelling and then work upwards from the drums. I will get my mixes to about 80% completion before testing on a master bus to see what obvious changes I need to make, after this is done I finish the mix, give it a day then reasses and make any final changes the next day.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A project where bands come into the studio and are recorded live and filmed, then mixing, mastering and editing the live performances for promotion.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Bring reference tracks
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been a carpenter for the last 12 years and producing music for the last 15, I am currently at the transitional period in my career where I want to move to mixing/mastering full time.
