I am a music producer and sound engineer from Buckinghamshire, UK, specialising in live recording, mixing and mastering. With a first class honours degree in Popular Music Production and a great deal of experience picked up from working at multiple studios and with online clients, I am often praised for my calm approach to recording sessions, organisation and meticulous attention to detail. Having worked with a wide range of artists and genres, from pop to orchestral music and rock to hip-hop; I love variety and music with a little something different.
I use top quality equipment and software to make sure that your tracks can become radio ready hits, including Avid Pro Tools, monitoring from Focal and a range of high quality plugins from developers including Universal Audio, Plugin Alliance, Slate Digital, Waves and Soundtoys. I understand that getting your vision across online can be difficult, so for that reason I offer unlimited revisions at no extra cost within 10 days of receiving your mix so that we can really nail the sound that you're after.
All of my clients are provided with masters that are optimised for their release strategy. I offer masters optimised for streaming (Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music etc.), for CD and SoundCloud and for club and venue play. Just let me know where you will be releasing and I'll give you what you need!

Interview with Philip Marsden Music
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The range of music I get to work with, seeing clients happy with their mixes/masters and seeing the finished tracks out in the world!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: It can be really hard to get across your creative ideas over the internet - make sure you provide some detailed notes on how you want your project to sound and some reference tracks. Also make sure that the provider has a reasonable revisions policy. Aside from that just make sure that your tracks are recorded as well as they possibly can be and that any edits are clean!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Record like there is no mixing and mix like there is no mastering.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I tend to mix from top down. (In reverse if you like) I start at the mix bus, applying some compression, very subtle EQ and some console and tape emulations. From there I treat each bus (for example the drum bus) before working my way down to each individual track or microphone. I find that working like this helps me to keep the bigger picture and end goal in mind.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mostly in the box on Pro Tools, with monitoring from Focal and a range of high quality plugins from developers including Slate Digital, Waves, Positive Grid and Soundtoys. I use the New Old Sound LTD McONE for monitor control and my trusty Faderport for DAW control.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Sylvia Massy, Will Yip, Dan Lancaster, Donald Glover (Childish Gambino), Enter Shikari, Maggie Rogers, Creeper, The Story So Far, Ben Howard and many, many more.
