I am an experienced audio engineer with nearly twenty years under my belt in the industry. I specialise in recording and mixing, and am equally happy working digitally, fully analog or a mixture of two. I am adept at getting a punchy, organic sound from the source - I like bold sounds and like my productions to be three-dimensional and exciting!
RECORDING ENGINEER: Whether it's tracking a band, recording punchy drum tracks; vocals, overdubs or an on-location recording of an entire orchestra - I have a large array of industry-standard mics and outboard preamps and processors to get the most detailed and natural-sounding raw tracks for your project.
MIXING: I am fully-versed in the digital world, and have a huge plug-in suite at my disposal. I also have the ability to use my large array of analog gear to either sum the mixes 'outside the box', mix in a hybrid digital/analog environment or mix down fully analog to tape. Monitoring is provided by ATC, ADAM, Yamaha, Genelec and KRK.

I spent 4 days with Samuel Bates at The Ladder Factory and have to say, It was the best studio session I've experienced. Sam knew his way around the studio and his knowledge of mixing and production made me feel at ease straight away. His ear for music and mixing is second to none. I look forward to working with him again soon.
Sam is a terrific talent, with a great ear and a humble sensitivity that was keyed in for my project. After adding lap steel to one of the singles off my record, he mixed it to where it stood out among the rest of the cuts. Further, he responded quickly with any of my edits. Highly recommended.
