Mixing, Mastering, Recording and Live Mixing
I am available to work in the studio or on location to help record, mix or master songs and also to control the sound at your live gigs. Editing and Mixing can either take place at your studio or in mine. I will work on projects from the start or after you have done all your recording. I will master tracks in my studio. Please contact me for an estimate of costs.
I am happy to help with all parts or any part of the process.
I have experience using Analogue and Digital desks, hard disk recorders and using software based tools such as Cubase, Logic, Digital Performer and Pro Tools. When recording it is important to ensure that the correct tools are used whether it be condenser microphones such as Neumann, AKG and Audio Technica or dynamics such as Shure.
I have been FOH engineer for the Paul Raymond Project at gigs to launch Paul's albums "Rewind 50" and "Terms and Conditions apply". These gigs were at the Borderline in Charing Cross Road. Go here for some recommendations from Paul and Rob.
I recently worked on the recording of Paul Raymond's guitar parts for the songs he had written for UFO's "Seven Deadly" album. If you click on this link you will get to the All Music website showing the credits for the "Seven Deadly" album.
I worked on a theatre tour for 4 + years and have been the Engineer for over 250 shows. In venues ranging from 600 to 3,000 capacity. I have also been the sound engineer for various bands and events.
All musical styles catered for, and any instrumentation.
I am currently on the look out for talented individuals or bands who would like to record and try and get a recording deal. I can help write the songs for you or you can bring your own songs and record them. If you are interested please follow the link at the foot of the page.

Its Rob Wolverson here, guitarist with P.Raymond Project. Thanks a lot for doing what you do last night, had some great feedback from the audience and that's the first time a live engineer has done my guitar sound justice, look forward to working with you in the future. "
A big thank you for your sterling work on friday night. From my point of view it is vital to have good technical support so I don't have to worry about anything going wrong and you both handled everything like the true professionals you are. Steve, I've the been told the FOH sound was great, which is the most important thing." - Paul Raymond
