  1. Review by Andrew H.

    Simon is a highly professional producer to work with, and given that this is my first track, he guided me through the process with ease and made me feel comfortable and confident to try new things creatively. A great musician, a great producer, and top bloke. Would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking for a music producer.

    Simon did a fantastic job mixing and mastering my single. His experience and skill was plain to hear as he carefully went about extracting the best possible sound from the raw tracks. I couldn't be happier with the result.

    If your new to the music industry, in terms of recording, getting the best sound out of your music, cleaning it up so to speak or just fine tuning it, Simon at Four Doors is the guy for you.
    Not only mixing and producing amazing sounding tracks, also helped with the printing and designs of the Cds, digital artwork and music video with his team of artists.
    I could not recommend him enough and be happier that he is offering these services to fellow musicians.

  4. Review by Gerry K.

    Simon is an exceptional sound engineer and a consummate professional.

    His relaxed manner and encouraging words boosted my confidence and made for a comfortable recording environment.

    I was impressed with Simon’s technical proficiency, quickly setting up mics and tracks to make the most of our studio time.

    The studio itself sounds superb. Fully sound-proof and featuring an array of guitars, amps, a keyboard and a drum kit.

    Terrific bloke, terrific value - I look forward to working with Simon more in 2020.

    I engaged Simon's services to record a number of guided meditations to provide clients learning how to meditate. I was daunted by the task of recording but Simon and his team put me at ease. Simon was patient and happy to re- record when I stumbled over my words and even helped me to fine tune my scripts. The outcome - 10 guided meditations that I can provide to clients on my mindfulness workshops and courses. I struggle w new technologies so I appreciated Simon showing me how to upload the sound files to Dropbox and save onto a USB. Thanks Simon! Look forward to working with you again.

  • Latest Josh P Single!Oct 12, 2020

    Mixing and mastering on the latest Josh P single finished! Completed remotely as he lives in London and we are based in Melbourne, Australia. Josh was very happy with the results and gave us a great review. We achieved Josh's idea for the track. When the vision from the artist comes alive this gives us much joy! It's about the artists sound and not the producers. Great work Josh!

  • Remote Mixing CompleteJun 10, 2020

    I've just finished mixing an LP for artist Nick Kiveaux from Sydney, Australia, mixed remotely and tailored to Nick’s sound. With great results, Nick said "I can hear everything perfectly now!" I love to help find the artists individual sound. If you need some mixing, recording or production work done please contact me. Cheers, Simon.
