Mot Bollox on SoundBetter

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.

    Fun and rewarding project with Mot, who is excellent at what he does. Delivered a convincing production and a solid rough that just needed to be pushed further in the mix. Communication was top notch and I’m excited to work together again in the near future.

    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.
