My Studio Equipment

I have a small studio set-up that achieves just a touch over -60db noise floor.
I use The Apogee Condenser Mic, which has a built-in pre-amp and analogue to digital converter, plus adjustable gain control, via the lightening connector into the (fan-free and therefore silent) iPad3 and record raw .wavs either Twisted Wave or DAW Multitrack.
I have always done my final editing and mixing down on Cool Edit Pro 2 (which became Adobe Audition) On my Dell Dimension 9100 PC with back-up hard-drive
I am skilled at mixing down seperate files into a final mix bed with music and effects and noise reduction, compression and EQ adjustment.
I can edit finely without causing digital glitches such as clicks, doubling breaths or them off half-way through

I can use email or my Dropbox account for delivery of high quality .wav or mp3 files to a client.

Skype available on both iPad and Dell Dimension.

I will continue to improve and refine this set-up to meet industry standards

Additional Skills

A PROPER trained actor with plenty of Theatre, Film, TV and Radio Drama experience since 1977. Loads of experience behind the microphone!
