I like valves, transformers, transistors and tape. I've noticed most things that sound good feature at least two of these in tandem. Over the years I've assembled a bunch of gear sporting the aforementioned components and fashioned them into a Recording Studio.

I offer - remote mixing either ITB or analogue through vintage mixing console and outboard.
- handle any editing jobs large or small.
- midi drum / synth programming.
- session guitar work.

Familiar with Logic, Reaper, Ableton, Audition and Reason.

Reviews of Mot Bollox

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby Verified Review

    Mot is one of Melbourne's best kept secrets when it comes to mixing engineers. His rates are reasonable and his approach is direct but helpful. His combined use of analogue and digital gear is very tasteful as well when you want to put a bit more edge in your mix. Recommended.
