I'm a recording engineer, mixer and guitar player. I have a home-based, treated studio suitable for overdubs and small ensemble recording. I have a degree in music production studied at Newcastle collage and have been honing my skills for nearly nine years. I am an accomplished guitar player and also have experience programming and composing music

I am willing to take on any recording, mixing or production project and can work in most genres. I have quality recording and mixing facilities available in my home-based studio. I love music so much that most of my house is given over to it! My treated room is suitable for a three piece ensemble recording, drum kit recording and overdubs as well as meeting the demands of any mixing project. As well as being well equipped, my studio provides a comfortable homely and enjoyable setting for the creation of music. Located on the edge of the city, there is a garden and tropical conservatory for you to take breaks, collect your self and get inspired to make great music.

I will work tirelessly to make every new project the best thing I've ever done.

I have played guitar for over twelve years and can readily play on any session. I've played in several bands and on most productions I have been involved with. I can also provide on-request guitar samples via the internet using any guitar set up you wish courtesy of state of the art amp modelling in the world renowned Axe FX unit.

Interview with Ralph Stokes - Blueleaf Studio

Analog or digital and why?
Both. Use your tools to the best of their ability. Both analog and digital have merit.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
An Axe FX II XL+ and the most expensive shur guitar money can buy. And a macbook pro. Thats it, who needs 5 pieces of gear? Oh, Id' better take a jack cable and a USB cable along.
