Engineer/studio for hire
« on: November 26, 2009, 01:57:45 AM »
Hey all. As a small number of you may already be aware, I'm studying sound at waapa, having just finished the second year of the three year course.

After having worked on a few projects over the last couple of years, all of which have received praise from my peers and from other musos, I feel I am in a position to advertise myself as a freelance recording engineer (albeit a student engineer).

Past jobs include Primea's Optical Illusions - http://www.myspace.com/primea13
I also mixed Sight Transcend's For The Sake Of Your Tommorrow - http://www.myspace.com/sighttranscend
I'm also currently recording Psychonaut's upcoming album which should hopefully be finished and released in the coming months.

Over the last couple of years I've worked closely with an incredible engineer who has around 25 years experience in the industry and we have plans to work towards developing a more permanent and professional relationship as mentor and assistant (an opportunity I am extremely grateful for). Consequently this means I have access to his high quality professional studio.

As far as prices go, I'm flexible. My current rate is $30 per hour. This does not include studio hire. This is a very cheap rate and as my experience grows, inevitably the rate will too. The use of the particular studio I mentioned earlier will cost roughly an extra $700 per day, however on certain dates when the owner is working away from the studio, the rate will be significantly lower.

I understand that a lot of bands don't have huge amounts of money so what I'd suggest when there are budget restrictions is to record drums at the studio, then I can record the rest of the project at home (whether it be my house or the house of a member of the band). I have a very capable setup.

One more thing I'd like to mention is that as I'm trying to earn a name for myself in the industry, my main goal is to make great sounding records no matter how much I have to work (within reason of course!). So what I'm saying is I don't just down tools when the clock hits 8 hours, I'll continue until I feel the job is sufficiently done.

So if you're looking at recording an EP/album/demo, please feel free to contact me on 0431 936 079. My email address is simwk@hotmail.com

Cheers guys,
Simon.

I thought I noticed your name in Primea's booklet, sounded really good too.

All the best with this mate.
