See my reviews. Trumpet and trombone recorded with a Neumann tube mic and Neve preamp.Pro horns at a good price. Vocal tuning word by word, note by note, syllable by syllable, in context with the music, the notes you meant to hit :)

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

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

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.

Vocal tuning. Let's face it, singing perfectly in tune is really difficult. Do you need a few tweaks to perfect a performance or a full salvage job on 'all over the place' vocals? I'm up for it.

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