Lets make a #1 Gold Record

NewBlackMusic on SoundBetter

I'm after the sound of the music industry's Golden Age! I am voting member of the Grammy Association / Recording academy. I have been in the music business for over 40 years. I experienced the music industry and music production when they were at their peaks. I know what good recordings are supposed to sound like.

i am from brooklyn ny.
i started writing and playing instruments onstage at 16yrs old.back in the 70's.
i love the sound of analog tape and a good analog board.
to be honest i think 99% of todays recordings sound like cardboard mush.
My goal is to give my clients a sound that lives up to the golden years of the recording industry.
I have had several songs on the grammy awards ballot and i have had my productions goto #1
on various record pool charts.
Beating out and besting the biggest major artists in the music business.

I mix and master to achieve a quality sound that will stand the test of time.
That means reasonable levels.
Personally i think the loudness war has ruined the music industry.
I use a combination of analog and digital outboard gear.
I very rarely use plugins.

I would love to speak with you.
