Producer/Engineer/Studio Owner based at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco... works in wide array of styles and specializes in helping independent artists get the best sound for their project. Check out the Soundcloud playlist below for some examples of past work.

Mixing, Producing, and Recording. Generally interested in helping artists either refine their sound, or define themselves a new sound all-together. Odd jobs, recording on location, Live recording, Songwriting, Sound design, etc. Very open to experimentation, with 12 years of experience delivering tried and true service. Mainly I work from my own studio (because it's affordable for artists) but have no problem traveling or working at other studios to change the sound/vibe. Lately I've been serving as a Governor on the board of the SF Chapter of The Grammys in order to meet new people and help with advocacy for musicians rights, working on my own music with my friend Rob (in order to experiment and get some of these ideas out of my brain), and since producing a couple chip tune records have started collecting circuit bent/hacked toys and pedals and other things that make weird noises. My taste in music is really broad. Anything in search of the right sound. I also drink lot of coffee.

Interview with Patrick Brown

Tell us about your studio setup.
I run two studios within the same facility right now. The first is a 48 channel SSL4000G room with 24 channels of Studer 2inch, 48 Channels of Protools i/o and racks of outboard. This room was built around 1968 and has been host to thousands of artists including Herbie Hancock, Primus, Mr. Bungle, Too $hort, Bobby Brown, MC Hammer, Stevie Wonder, and on and on. My new second studio is primarily a mixing and production room, with 32 i/o of Protools and a vocal booth. Tons of plugins, 4 racks of outboard effects, eqs and compressors, etc.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
These days I typically focus on mixing and producing, though i will still do location recording and mastering on occasion.
