Studio

About the Studio

Though I have been making and recording music for years, it only now has occurred to me that I should open my doors to outside talent. After tweaking my setup for a year now, this little audio cottage nestled in the heart of Downtown Pensacola, Florida has all the bells and whistles of the best home recording studios. Able to handle 26 tracks simultaneously and mixed down on a 32 track console, I am capable of handling almost any size project. Granted, the live room space is limited, so orchestras are out of the picture! I also must add that my mobile recording setup is limited right now, so I am restricting my services to in-house work until further notice.

I specialize in your typical 4-piece rock n’ roll outfits, but have the tools to handle a number of setups. Singer-songwriters are welcome as well! I can aid in tracking additional instrumentation or hiring local musicians to lay down the perfect tracks. Send me a message about what you’re looking for and I should be able to fill you in on the details.


The Equipment I Use

Though I do use digital plugins where needed for additional audio processing, I try to incorporate analog devices into the signal path wherever possible. The majority of the mix is handled through my mixing console, a refurbished and modified Fender MX-5200, but that’s not to say that I don’t utilize the conveniences of digital tracking to hasten the tracking & mixing process. I’m always up to try out new experiments in the studio, so if you ever have anything crazy in mind, don’t be afraid to throw the idea my way.

All of the equipment in the studio is available for use, but bringing in your own equipment is always welcome and encouraged to capture the sound that best represents your music.

Previous Work

I’ve mostly worked with young original bands around the Pensacola area, and I’m not going to lie, a lot of the work that I’ve done has been for projects that I have been involved with, whether it be my own music or written by friend’s of mine. Going forward, I’m hoping to work more with a variety of musicians and genres outside of my comfort zone. If you’d like to be one of those acts, reach out to me, and I’ll look forward to speaking with you about your next project.
