A Move from the Attic

Not that I've been sequestered there for the last three-and-a-half years....
Those who know me fairly well may remember how much I love to record good acoustic music.  It's a kind of passion of mine that has been neglected somewhat over the past few decades, while I was trying to run a retail business and spend insufficient quality time with my family.  Now retirement has arrived and a major project involving the recording of the stories of folk who live or have lived in the Alvie / Red Rock district has been completed, I have decided to offer my services for a very nominal cost to performers who have in mind a Project requiring high quality sound recording and production of an album, EP or demo, etc.
Over recent years I have invested in a number of world-class items - Metric Halo digital interfaces, various types of studio microphones and editing and mastering software in particular.  And I think by now I have a fair idea how to get the best results from my gear.
To me, true stereo recording is the way to go:  when the recording is replayed on a decent system the impression is one of "You are there!".  Multi-mono "stereo" tends to sound contrived and somewhat harder to listen to.  (We do multi-track work as well, if that is the way you want to go down that path.)

If you would like to discuss your project with me, I can be reached at
