“Patience pays for productivity and I have never met a man who is noticeably unaffected by difficult and artistic people wanting to get it right and often changing their mind! Not only do you get the services of a recording engineer, Dan is a competent musician and producer, often stepping up to the mic to offer a harmony or a bass line, which will often end up being the vital ingredient that you spent months trying to find yourself, only for him to find it in minutes. He is devoted to precision and is passionate about what he does. Having spent over 10 years trying to find a studio that gave me a product that I was happy with for a reasonable amount of money, I can honestly say that I have never ventured elsewhere or considered ever needing to. Very recommended.”

As a set of 60 somethings who had never used a recording studio before, we were unsure of what to expect! What we found was a well equipped studio operated by Dan, who turned out to be a very accomplished sound engineer with the patience of a saint. We hired the studio for a day long session and as a three piece folk / acoustic group, we managed to record and then have Dan mix a total of 13 tracks. We were very pleased with the way Dan managed to improve the sound of our instruments (including a banjo!) and get a good mix from some fairly ropey vocals. We left with CD’s and the same evening Dan forwarded a Dropbox link so we could download the tracks. All in all, we had a good and productive day out in Birmingham.
