Want 3 different basslines from a Minimoog, ARP 2600 and SH-101? Need a Jupiter string sound for the verse, and a Prophet string for the Chorus?
Want to add some dirt, distortion, compression, tube overdrive into your cold stems? Need something instead of plugins? Want me to master your project?
The best sounds often come from hands on experimentation and discovery. Want to record vocals through some of the world's best vocal chain? Come over, f*ck around and find out!
What you send: MIDI files, tempo, and a description of what you think you need.
What you get: Stereo 44.1 audio versions delivered back to you until you're happy.
I've only done this ̶h̶u̶n̶d̶r̶e̶d̶s̶ thousands of times. Maybe you want a bassline but have no idea which synth to use. There is no right answer, but I can send you some choices to pick from.
Maybe you need some dirt added to your sound? Some saturation. Some inaccuracies. Some punch and distortion that you can only get from lusty hardware pieces. Perhaps you need a track "louder". Or maybe you're not sure what you need, but you think hardware and someone else's ears could improve your work.
Are you a control freak and cannot bear to put your music in someone else's hands? Fair enough! (Me too!)
Book some time at your convenience, come over and play with some synthesizers and I'll hit record. Or bring me your tracks and I'll show you how to process them with the undeniable girth of a Culture Vulture, then show you how to dial in a sound with the Overstayer Modular Channel. Almost every track can benefit when being run through external processing, inserting some imperfections along the way.
Or maybe you just want to belt out your song into a tube Neumann U67, through a Neve 1073, 1176, and LA-2A and see if it's all really worth it?
Hint: ...it might not be!
Not much. Often times its cheaper than renting from me.
