TP Sampler

Audio Production

Live concert and studio audio recording and production.

I have been offering professional recording services since 1996 with projects released commercially,  internationally and broadcast on RNZ Concert. My focus now is on location recording of orchestras, choirs and chamber music ensembles as well as sound design for film, web and live performance.

In the studio, which has acoustic treatment designed by Marshall Day Acoustics, my setup is based around a UAD Apollo interface with Focusrite ISA preamps going into Logic Pro on a Mac. Monitoring consists of Neumann KH80DSP monitors and Beyer D770, D880 and D900 headphones controlled by a Audient Nero monitor controller. Plug-ins include UAD and SSL emulations of vintage gear.

Microphones include, Neumann SM69, Microtech Geffel UMT 70S, Sennheiser MKH8020 (2), MKH8040 (2), MKH8050 (2), Beyer MC740N, M201 (2), AEA N8 Ribbon (2) and Shure SM7.

Location recording is largely undertaken with a Sound Devices MixPre-10, an 8-channel portable recorder with ultra low-noise Kashmir preamps. Monitoring as per above.

Bookings are by negotiation.
