Hi , I'm Mike Smith and I specialise in production and programming.
I've worked on many projects as producer/engineer or programmer and have credits on over 30 albums and numerous singles/ep's.
I can help manage your project from raw song to final mix either in my project studio or in a larger facility for that ultimate polish.
I started in the business in the 60's as a guitar player in pop/rock bands and my first studio experience was with Micky Most at the old RAK Studio. Micky told me that I would never be a session guitarist and having then seen Jimmy Page and big Jim Sullivan I totally agreed.!! I moved to Keys very soon thereafter . My first single as a keyboardist was a cover of "Get Ready" with disco band Hi Profile ...this became rock band Amazon with an album produced by Ashley Howe,then the inevitable split and the end of my band career. The bass player and I became The Waveteam.....a programming and production team based around the PPG Wave system.......and went on to produce and perform on several successful albums (and more not so successful ones!!) which we still do. I now live in Wales.
My credits include
- PPG wave 2.3 and Waveterm
- Cubase 5 and huge array of plugins
- Focusrite i/o 26 pro interface
- Focusrite liquidmix
Terms of Service
I work completely by negotiation until the project is complete. I'm convinced the creative process is impeded by time constraints, however if the budget is tight I am used to working to deadlines
