Track Record

Play Examples

Are you listening to your music and thinking that one or more of the tracks aren’t quite right? You can replace existing tracks and/or add new tracks to your mix. Whether you need to replace a track that isn’t working for you or add something extra to finish your song or instrumental. Enjoy the sound of an expertly played and professionally recorded instrument playing in the style of your choice.

All the guitars are recorded through the ART valve pre-amp using the high quality Studio Projects TB1 valve and the Electro Voice RE20 dynamic microphones. Choose your guitar and the type of amplifier you’d like too.
Record several tracks to fill out your mix and give it the full sound required for broadcast standard. Double tracking guitars for a full stereo placement. Complete string or brass parts with full harmonies can make all the difference to your mix. You may need a different arrangement for the bridge or more instruments to power up the chorus.

Send your material minus the tracks you want recorded. Include reference tracks with the type of sounds and playing you’re after. Receive the new tracks in return. You can suggest changes and the new tracks can be sent directly to you or the finished song can be mixed and mastered for you first.

You  may be able to work collaboratively with me by connecting through  VST Transit, a free app by Steinberg.
