3 ReviewsEndorse Jean Prat
I did a lot of productions with Jean at his Purple Sheep studio, and everytime the result is amazing ! And now with his new (old) 24 tracks tape recorder the sound is warmer than ever with a wide range dynamic ! Highly recommended !
I can't recommend Jean Prat enough. I recorded my first album at his studio, and the result is simply sublime. I'm a perfectionist and as soon as we started working, I knew I was in good hands. The quality of the takes and the mix is incredible, and his knowledge of music was priceless every time I needed his input.
It is very pleasant to work with Jean who has a very good knowledge both as engineer and a musician. He is efficient, had great ears and great gears and is able to understand and listen to what you need and want...
