David from Kilmaurs, Scotland. An online three CD project with David who is a singer/songwriter in his 60's with a home studio using Logic on an iMac. He provides me with guitar & vocal demos of his songs, I create suitable backing tracks with guitars bass and drums which he downloads into Logic and then records his own vocals. I import his vocals into our system, add solo instruments as appropriate and then mix and master the songs. We keep in regular contact during the process to discuss ideas and review progress. CD1 is finished, CD2 is almost finished and CD3 is work in progress.
Phil & Estelle from Steeple Claydon, Bucks. A two CD project with Phil & Estelle who are a husband and wife duo with Phil playing guitar & both of them sharing the vocals. CD1 was a studio based recording and was finished before Covid. We started CD2 in the studio with us creating suitable drums and bass backing tracks to which we added all of Phil's rhythm guitar parts and their combined vocals. That was all done just before the first Covid lockdown leaving Phil's lead guitar parts (electric & acoustic) to be done. Phil bought a Tascam Model 24 mixer/recorder, downloaded everything we recorded in the studio and set about recording his lead guitar parts at home. I'll be adding those to the project on our system soon and will then mix and master the songs and prepare a CD production master for them
Robin from Spain. Robin & I recorded two albums together many years ago and he recently got in touch with me about the possibility of recording some of his more recent songs. It will be on online project with us providing backing tracks and Robin recording his guitar and vocal parts on a Tascam Model 12 mixer/recorder in Spain.
Christine from Northampton. An online project creating a compilation CD of songs we recorded together several years ago. Our mastering software was significantly upgraded recently so we'll take advantage of that and also create new artwork for the CD booklet and then supply CD's to Christine.
Home Studios. I'm often involved with clients who have their own home studio but need help with putting a good finish to their projects. That might involve advice on their recordings and mixes or mixing their songs for them but the most popular request is for professional mastering.
