About Me

and why me ? :- )

With my 53 years of age I have an impressive 36 years of working experience in the professional audio and music industry.

 

Starting in my home-country Australia, I quickly worked my way from TV spot and demo-recordings to complete album productions.

 

Today, I can look back on almost 30 years of work for the European market  as a successful producer and sound engineer (with over 20 Gold and Platinum Awards), which includes - the recording of, - the creating of the sound design for, - and the mixing of countless documentaries, industry and image films.

 

Due to my world-wide experience, covering all music styles from Pop to Metal and from Classical to "Schlager", I can guarantee an improvement in quality for any mix in the areas of transparency, comprehensibility and above all pressure.

 

For some songs it could be an improvement of 20%, for some, more than 100%.

But even if it's only 20%, isn't it worth making every effort to have a better chance against so much competition?

 

My countless contacts to studios of all categories (and the flexibility to obtain professional results in even the simplest equipped home studios and rehearsal rooms) makes it possible for me to find a solution for each and every budget.
