//Production and Engineering

   Audio engineering is two things in my eyes - a huge, subjective game of problem fixing and trouble shooting and another artistic, creative outlet. I primarily work on Apple's Logic Pro software and have used this since 2007 (before Logic Pro, I used Cubase) for composition and songwriting, arrangement work, scoring, audio engineering and post-production work. I treat digital audio workstations such as Logic Pro as another instrument and means of creating artistic output as I take much advantage of tools such as automation, complex signal chaining and thick, dense layering of tracks to create my desired sound.

   I also like to experiment with running reel-to-reel tape in tandem with Logic Pro software to achieve a hybrid setup. I would typically do this at the last stage in the mixing process, offloading vocal tracks, synths, clean guitars and sometimes drums to the tape to achieve authentic saturation and warmth.
