Acoustic and Concert Recording in Nelson
Working with musicians to create wonderful recordings is an absolute pleasure. It can be a complex process and a key ingredient to success is providing a positive and relaxed environment in which artists can create their very best work.
In addition to recording in the studio I also provide location recording services for live concerts including orchestras, choirs, brass bands, chamber music ensembles and acoustic music groups, many of which have been produced for commercial CD or broadcast on RNZ Concert.
Esoteric Recording Equipment
In terms of gear, my home-based studio is centred around a UAD Apollo 8p interface along with many UAD emulated plug-ins of classic studio hardware, all addressed in Logic Pro on a Mac. For location work I use Sound Devices MixPre 3 and 10m units.
Microphones include Neumann U87, SM69 and TLM193, Microtech Gefell UMT 70 S, Sennehiser MKH 8020, 8040, 8050, 8090, AEA N8 Ribbon and Shure SM7B. Focusrite ISA Two preamps compliment those on the Apollo and monitoring is on Neumann KH 80 DSP speakers.
Necessity dictates that I am quite selective about which projects I undertake. Enquiries about new projects are subject to negotiation.
My studio and location rates are $90 per hour exclusive of GST plus expenses. Students and selected artists may enjoy a one-third discount.
