Robin has many years of Musical training under his belt, that's what makes him such a great engineer, as well as a great set of ears and fantastic taste. Being a Recording/Mix Engineer that has worked with many as well as the brilliant U2, he knows what a great record should sound like.

I was trained in SAE, London & Berklee College of Music, Boston. After SAE I was an assistant in Dublin working for great acts including Dervish & U2. Having drummed for many years and featured on many studio recordings my musical ability is a massive asset in the studio.

I'm a little obsessive about sounds/sources, that translates into my recordings and what makes the albums I work on special. I'm move mountains to make sure your record sounds like a Grammy!

    Robin is a pro. Excellent communication. He brought our songs to life. He was able to translate the vision we heard in our heads to our ears. Will be working with him again!

    Robin is a highly gifted and professional mix engineer. He has a great ability to identify the strengths of each song, creating sonic landscapes of bright and rich tones. His comprehensive studio background illuminated my music and propelled each mix beyond expectation. It’s a joy working with him, and I’m thankful for his contribution to my album.

    Robin is an absolutely wonderful mixing engineer. He approached my track with a lot of care, giving equal importance to the technical and musical sides of the song. Was always in touch and made sure I was 100% happy. After many bad/lackluster experiences with other mixing engineers, I finally found someone I can trust with my music. Thanks Rob!

    I worked with Robin on a project live full band session for a national radio station. He went out of his way to come to our rehearsal space for pre-production before the date. During the recording and mixing stages he was spot on with everything, having honed in our sound. He's a fast mover and very professional, hugely pleased with the results.

    Robin Ball is an outstanding studio engineer. We had robin project manage our recording.A stress free experience.Rob had played drums on an album previously recorded by a band member so we already were aware of his skills in organizing the people involved, our best time management and the overall sound of the record.Micheál Roche from 'Root Cellar'

    Robin’s knowledge of every aspect of the recording process has evolved into an intuitive art form. You know that when he advises you he knows exactly what he’s talking about, and you should take note and listen. He's also a genuinely lovely guy with a great sense of humour! Lucy, Factions.

    Rob's worked with me on a few projects and I'm always amazed with the results. He’s a real pro. Everything you could want in an engineer/producer. Also - a great drummer. He came in (as an engineer) to listen to a few tracks pre-recording - we ended up asking him to play drums on the entire record!

    Robin has an exceptionally musical ear and a highly refined ability to focus on subtle tones from instrumentation and mixes. I have played bass with Robin in a band context; his calm demeanor, observant nature and robust sense of focus make him an ideal colleague for any collaborative situation.

    What can I say about Robin.....he's an absolute legend! He just mixed our second single in New York in September and we are delighted with the result! He kept in constant touch all through the mixing process to make sure we were happy with the progress and has an amazing attention to detail. Thanks Rob! Late City Edition

    I've had the pleasure of working with Robin on a couple of mixing projects both in Ireland and New York and he has achieved outstanding results. His direct and professional approach is second to none and he strives for perfection ensuring all the time that the artist gets the sound they envision and more. Would highly recommend to any band/artist
