Record anything, on a huge range of instruments Have a basic idea of what you need? I will compose it and record it.
Professional musician since 2002. In my studio I will record the music you've written.

I have a large collection of traditional woodwind instruments from around the world to give your track or film score that perfect sound.

Interview with Joshua Hyde / musician
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My clients often get me to record lines they have improvised into a midi unit, or to improvise based on their brief. The woodwind lines are usually the last ones to go on the track, this is best for rhythmic precision and especially for tuning.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Røde NTK large diaphragm condenser and a pair of Oktava small diaphragm condensers in my studio, to add to the DPAs and Shures that I sometimes add to give color and personality.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Listening to the whole track, getting an idea of the feel, vibe and style. Listening to other tracks by the same artist. I usually improvise over the track a bit, practice the lines, and then lay down a few takes. I usually send through a couple of different versions if the notes are all written down.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The colors and personality of all the different woodwinds. Each instrument can evoke a place, a feeling, a culture - just through it's sound.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Versatility - with the right brief I can make the sound you need!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Anything from classical to new-age to jazz.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: All the production in the world can't change the original take - it's best to record quality and go from there.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have a passion for recording, for meeting musicians from around the world and for playing music. I have been performing around the world for years, starting out as a jazz musician, playing piano, and later studying woodwinds and specialising in saxophone. This work is relatively new for me, it allows me to travel less, and still be productive and creative.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be clear with what you're looking for, provide examples of similar tracks, and if you're not happy let me know - I'll keep working until it's right.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: All my woodwind instruments are analog!
