PRODUCTS - With over forty years of electronic design and manufacturing experience, mostly in the audio industry, I still love taking on challenges and winning! For me, designing something and seeing it through to a commercial product, is as creative as writing and producing in the studio. Under this category,  you can browse through the things I make to help musicians, producers and engineers, along the way. 🙂

SERVICES (Technical) - Don't let the fact that you're unable to install one of my systems into your beloved piece of vintage equipment scare you off! I'm more than happy to do that for you. I also repair and  service studio and live performance gear as well as renovate vintage synthesisers, signal processors and guitar amps.

SERVICES (Creative) - I've been involved with studio and live music production, since 1985. It's my passion and I have a huge wealth of knowledge and experience. Being a musician myself, I'm able to connect with my clients while I make magic things happen. I'm also a keen photographer, website and graphics designer. If you think I can be of assistance, please do check out this category.

UPCYCLED AUDIO - My project for 2023, Upcycled Audio offers vintage equipment that's been renovated and / or upgraded with a view to deliver classic quality performance with modern convenience. You can read more about it here.

MARSHALL JMP-1 STUFF - Putting all my bits 'n' pieces for the Marshall JMP-1 into one place will hopefully make things a little easier for fans of this legendary MIDI valve pre-amp.

Modern, state-of-the-art recording equipment and some beautiful vintage synths and guitar / bass systems, is just scratching the surface. Being a musician / song-writer himself, Alex loves working with fellow musicians towards achieving the best possible results. Squeezing every ounce of juice out of his studio, he applies the same to the people he works with, often without them even being aware.

A few words from Alex:

Over the decades, I’ve had debates and even passionate arguments about DAWs, monitors, plug-ins, effects, guitar amps but at the end of the day, it all comes down to your senses. And your senses only get tuned with experience.

I don’t want my time wasted and I won’t waste anyone else’s time so sometimes it’s easier to stop and take a step back. People don’t do that anymore because time is money so more often than not, artists end up with recording perhaps not their best performance. That upsets me.

Now-a-days, many studios are very reliant on plug-ins and many engineers / producers have their ‘go-to’ patches. Yes, it’s quick and can even deliver impressive results but for me, that’s not what music is about, I’m afraid. My philosophy is to use as little compression, eq and effects, as possible and 99% of the time, I only use such processes to enhance an incredibly excellent take. I do NOT use processing to try to ‘mask’ a bad take or mix. What a waste of time!
