Although mixing is my main focus, I do offer other services such as:

- Vocal Tuning (Vocal pitch enhancement, to have a smoother more accurate sounding performance, used subtley or for effect)
- Time Alignment - Quantising (To get a tighter performance, to sort out timing issues behind or ahead of beat)
These steps must be done before mixing, either by my self, another service or yourself. Don't hesitate too get in touch!

If you need help on anything production related this is the only person for the job. He is efficient, and professional, and most importantly has a great ear and passion for music. I could not be happier with the improvement to my compositions thanks to working with him. Highly recommended.
Joe is a hard working, mindful and well researched individual. Such a lovely guy with a passion for music and for making music sound as good as it possibly can. He knows his way around a multitude of instruments and how to capture the full potential of them. Whether is mixing, production, recording, composition or advice, Joe is a sure bet.
