Hi, I'm Connor. I'm the partial owner and house engineer at Casino Time Recording Studio in Minneapolis MN. I've produced music for The Minnesota Vikings, MTV, and NBC. If you need a drummer, guitarist, or bassist, I can take care of that as well.
My services vary quite widely. I offer competitive rates for remote recording, session work, production, mixing and mastering services. I mainly provide real instruments (Drums, Piano, Organ, Bass, Guitar, Percussion, SFX, etc.) to record for clients but we have plenty of softsyths and virtual instruments for things like cinematic production.
Send me a note through the contact button above.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I believe I do a great job at bringing the emotional element out in a song and well as a motif for the listener to latch onto.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Our control room has predominantly diffuse-based treatment. Our main interface is a Presonus Quantum 48x48 (48 Ins and 48 Outs). We have a vintage 16 channel Allen and Heath System 8 console, Focusrite Octopre, and an Audient ASP800. We have one live room with an ample amount of Gobos for adaptive isolation and treatment (kind of a 70's vibe). We have a Kawaii upright, 3 Ludwig kits, A wall of guitar amps, upwards of 20 guitars and basses, A stacked mic locker, a closet full of pedals, random synthesizers on the walls, and a ton of ambient lighting to set the mood.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: HUGE inspirations include Keith Kenniff (Helios), David Maxim Micic, Noah Gundersen, Andy Shauf, Whitney, Toe, Bibio, Alex G, etc.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording and mixing are the two most common services I provide. I usually prefer to live track with or without a metronome to best capture the bands natural sound. The same philosophy applies to my mixing. I want to bring out the strengths in the band's sound and give them a record that they're going to be proud of.
