ABOUT SOUNDBYTE STUDIO
Bringing Your Music to Life
SoundByte Studio is a professional, private home studio based near Worthing, West Sussex.
I offer Recording, Mixing & Mastering services and more often than not all 3 together in one very fairly priced no time restraints project!
I deal with bands & artists mainly in the more noisy Rock/Metal Genres, but i have loved having had experience with all sorts of music in the 15+ years
I've been engineering including; Folk/Indie/Punk/World/Classical/Choral/Electronic music and more!
I have an easy going, down to earth attitude and
I'm always told how creative and un-pressurised people feel tracking in my studio, specially when projects don't involve time restraints.
Here at SoundByte Studio I have a particular mindset when Recording & Mixing records. I find that right now there is a lot of overproduced music around especially in some of the more heavier genres, lots of people using the same tones & samples which I personally find not only a little boring to listen to when everybody's got the same kind of generic sound as each other, but often in my experience they don't often reflect the band/musician's live sound!
However do love a lot of elements of modern music production so what I try to do is walk that line between a tight modern produced record that is still sounds true to the Band/Musician's live sound, capturing sounds with real instruments/amps etc and importantly trying to achieve something that is unique and interesting to listen to that will compete with other modern productions.
If anybody is interested in any recording, online mixing, mastering, session drums then please do give me a call, drop me a text or email :)

I have over 15 years experience recording many instruments in many different genre's of music and have particular experience with tuning and recording/mixing real acoustic drums being a drummer myself!
I have an array of the highest quality equipment from amps/drumkits/microphones/preamps/outboard to a vintage A&H analog recording/mixing console to capture these. Contact me to arrange a recording session now!
MASTERING & STEM MASTERING
Need the final Icing on the cake from your already mixed tracks!? I run a state of the art Digital & Analogue hybrid setup and have the experience to turn your mix into a next level professional master.
I will provide CD & or DDP files for duplication for E.P's and Albums, and of course singles for radio play.
Stem mastering is also a great option so you can have your mastering engineer have access to individual elements of the track and be able to treat them separately if needed.
Personally I think this is the future of mastering. Contact me to reserve your next Online Mastering session or alternatively arrange to have me do a Demo Master FREE of charge!

It's worth noting that if a track needs any editing this is totally fine but will be cost extra and will need to be discussed prior to sending your track/tracks in for Mixing.

I am available for guitar re-amping with either an online or attended sessions.
I have a few amps (Marshall JCM2000, Peavey 6505) and various cabinets (Vintage Marshall JCM800, Zilla Fat Boy, Blackstar Artisan) I can use for this purpose. Please contact me to discuss this if interested.
I've have been playing drums for over 20 years and in bands for 17 years up until recently. Though admittedly mostly a self taught drummer I can play many styles of music in the blues/folk/rock/punk/metal genres and more.
I've played in a covers band and in the original bands - Bad Billy Band, Gunshot Straight, Bleed Again, Aten & Gershwin Warriors.
I'm really keen to get into doing some session drumming as I think it would be great fun and I have the skills and perfect facilities for it.
For this reason I'm open for discussion on session work.
