  • Favorite Equipment : The Neve 8816 Summing Mixer, although in the box mixing does sound great the difference I noticed after the addition of the Neve Summing Mixer was astonishing and having the optional Digital I/O card made it even better. I found my mixes had more depth, definition, clarity and separation between the sounds. The built in Widener makes a huge difference it not only gives the mixes more space but makes everything sound bigger as well.

Testimonials:

Joe is an engineer par excellence,he did some brilliant work on our "Punkara" album plus our latest "Signal and the Noise".We often call Joe for programming stuff too because he's so quick on the click...
- Steve Chandra Savale - Asian Dub Foundation

Joe is one of the nicest people in the business to work with. He has that rare innate quality where he can instantly make you feel like you're working on a project with one of your best friends despite having never met the guy before! Joe has become our 'go to guy' for a number of different reasons and projects which is testament to his skill set and versatility. He has engineered, edited, mixed and produced things to a consistently high standard for us no matter what the budget and isn't afraid to go the extra mile to get things right. If you want someone who's in it for the right reasons (the music) - then Joe's your man
- Will Whisson - Electric River

Joe is a true professional. I have worked with Joe on two occasions, both of which he delivered excellent results. As I am a singer-songwriter with no formal music training, Joe's ability to understand and translate my ideas and hopes for the project to a finished product is critical. I would highly recommend Joe.
