I can record professional quality trumpet and trombone for your tracks using top pro equipment. I'll write the parts, stack harmonies, improvise solos, or copy exactly parts you have written on keyboard or midi brass.

For a few years now I've been building up my home studio of high-end mics and equipment, writing and mixing, but my speciality now is BRASS.

If you want horns on your tracks I can play and record them, trumpet and trombone, with a very high-end recording chain. I can get a saxophone player too.

If you have brass lines in mind I can copy them from midi brass or a keyboard part, or I can write brass and stack up harmonies with trombone and trumpet, add improvised solos.

If you want changes afterwards I'll make revisions until you are happy with the work.

I also play a bit of bass, guitar and synths. There is a Moog here :)

    Second time hiring Golden Mile Studio with an equally fast and high quality deliver just as before. They even picked out and recorded some extra parts for the project, just for good measure! Excellent all-round; great communicator, quick turnaround and super professional results = 100% satisfaction and most highly recommended. Thank you!

    Great work from Steven and the guys yet again. He even re-edited some audio stems without me having to ask and delivered the work much earlier than expected! Always bang on point for any brass work I might need, top class results.
