Sea Minus Mountains

Featured

The last band I mixed, The Ugly Stumps, have turned into Sea Minus Mountains! This round we tracked bass and drums at our local studio, then completed guitars, vocals and mixing here at my project space.

Great alt rock vibes here, I really enjoy their style! Slow Down is more Rock Ballad while Regardless is uptempo. Enjoy!

NEW MIX: CLO – Blackout

One of my favorite producers is having a Remix Contest! Prizes are a bunch of cool gear from Audient and Lewitt Mics, and since I’m a gear head I thought I’d enter….
The Produce Like A Pro academy released tracks for multiple instruments, besides the vocal I grabbed the strings and piano then worked around those changes.

Here is a link to the original:

And this is my rocked-out version!


Gear Review: Mackie HM 4 Headphone Amp

I’ve been wanting to get headphones near my drum set and in my vocal booth so I sought out the Mackie HM-4. This small piece of gear has been very helpful!

I have only two of four outputs in use at this time but will get another set near my keyboard/percussion, also I like having one spare output for anyone else that needs to listen in.

The sound is very transparent and has plenty of headroom. I wedged the unit between some window and door trim for now but would like to have it permanently mounted in the near future! Another band in my building uses the HM-4 and really like it as well! If you have a need for a simple headphone distribution amp, this is a good deal and performs great on a daily basis!

Again I thank my good friend Shawn for helping me out with some studio goodies 😀

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams


I know everyone and their mother has had enough of this song, but I had the acapella and wanted to take a swing.

“Cold” by Maroon 5

Finally updated the site a bit! Also happy to announce that I have been busy producing music… taking the acapella from popular songs then arranging my own music underneath. Here is the latest that I did using “Cold” by Maroon 5 and playing Guitar, Bass, Drums and Keys:
