Located in Seattle, Studio C is a project studio for singer/songwriters, solo musicians or small groups playing folk, classical, jazz, ethnic, experimental, or any mostly acoustic music (the space is not suitable for drumkits or loud electric guitars). While many musicians can record into their computers, most do not have high-quality microphones, preamps and a/d converters, or the experience to get great-sounding recordings.
I have a selection of nice microphones, preamps, compressors, and good a/d converters, as well as years of experience playing and recording music. I enjoy working with people as well as engineering and producing music; I try to achieve a comfortable and relaxed environment.

I also do remote recording running ProTools on a laptop with an MBox2, using the Apogee Mini Me's preamps and a/d converters. With this arrangement I can record up to 4 tracks at once.
