Being both musician and engineer myself, I comprehend and highly value your creativity / vision. Whether it is clarity, depth, weight or definition, I will bring the missing bit to your music production. Let me know about your inspirations/ references and the vibe/message your music is conveying and we can start from there.
I am a mixing / mastering engineer / sound designer trained and graduated from SAE London. I had experience working as a live sound engineer and had the chance to work with some of the best musicians in the city. Meanwhile I am also a sound designer and Foley artist working remotely for my film sound post production company(www.sigmasonics.com) based in London.

  10. A: Nope sorry. I just got here.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

SSL X-desk is my centerpiece of the studio, routing/ monitor control/ summing are done thru this gear, together with 2 patchbays on the rack. There are some of my selected 500 series modules, a lexicon reverb and other utility devices on the rack as well. See gear highlight for more detail. I use a pair of Focal Alpha65 and Hifiman Edition XS headphones to monitor sound. Most importantly the control room is acoustically treated, minimizing the effect of standing waves.
