Tiny Dynamite Studio-Inspiring Recording & Music Making

 

Tiny Dynamite Studio

 

Recording, mixing and mastering can be done from anywhere in the world. You can upload your tracks to Drop-box or any other service and I can carry out the work needed to give your music the best possible sound using the ultimate combination of analog and digital equipment collected over 25 years of professional work... When done and you're happy, simply pay via PayPal.

(See the short gear list at the bottom for the nerdy details...)

I pride myself on my work and I'm not happy until you are so changes are often easy and expected. Just ask.

 

Services offered:

 

*Recording

 

from a shaker overdub to full production.

I'm able to record solo instruments or an entire acoustic drum kit in my professionally designed studio set in lush beach-side surroundings crammed with the most desirable vintage and modern equipment in the world. I have connections with many fantastic musicians across all genres and instruments who would be happy to play on your track too so just ask!

*Custom made drum tracks

 

hand crafted specifically for your taste and musical style. Delivered as hi-resolution, multi-track audio and any MIDI data if required. Using a full acoustic setup with numerous choices of world class drums and cymbals or V-Drums combined with custom sound libraries for infinite sound choices.

 

*Editing and mixing

 

 send me the drums, bass, guitars, vocal stems and I can mix your tracks. Depending on the material, I can also de-mix stereo audio and send you the individual parts-extract lead guitar, voice or other instruments from a mix for karaoke or 'minus' instruments for learning and performance. Great for teaching.
