Contact

Please do get in touch via email at the address below, but I respectfully ask that you be mindful of the following:

It might take me some time to get back to you if you catch me during a run of tracking sessions – As actual ‘studio’ time is now typically very limited, those days can be extremely long, with little or no opportunity to focus on anything other than the project at hand.

I am not a manager. I’m not an A&R guy. And I’m not a good source of ‘Industry’ contacts and relationships. If you’re looking for a professional contribution from me as a producer, mixer or engineer, if you have a project you’d like to discuss with no obligations, or if you just have a question for me personally, I’d love to hear from you. If you’re sending out generic, copy and paste emails to anyone remotely connected to the music industry, that go something like ‘We have made a record, and are looking for A-List management, a major-label deal and a global booking agent’ please leave me off your list.

I take all communications from artists seriously. I will always take the time to read messages carefully, and respond in detail to those that are relevant. Generic emails that bear no relationship to my role can still cumulatively take up a great deal of time and energy to sort through. Please be understanding, and only email me if it’s actually me you wish to contact.

    Hi, I just signed up for the SOS forum, and saw a post of yours recommending mic amps. Glad to hear the vintechs hold up to the Neve stuff well enough. I may grab a pair.

    Then I listened to your music on your site.

    AMAZING stuff man!

    Great job!

    You got almost that Freddie M thing outta the vocalist. Sounds real nice, and the drum mix is great too. Nice punchy snare, still real clear though. Lotsa space in the mix., nice and open yet still full. Sounds top notch!

    I mean that. Great set of ears attached to your head there.

    I have been doing this stuff since 1989 or so for a living, take it for what it is I reckon. Was it mixed on a console?

    Just thought I’d drop in and leave a remark.
    Highest regards,
    John Maheu

    P.S. The SOS forums seem a bit more civil than the likes of the folks @ Gearslutz.com etc.
    Man it gets ugly over there. I wish I was in the UK sometimes, as the people seem a bit nicer and less overtly egotistic and emotional. Just my point of view. Plus, most of the great music came / comes from there IMHO.

    • I have a singer that is looking for a music producer to help him move to the next level to a more broader stage nation wide. I would love to know if you can help him with pursuing his life long dream?

      Thank you,

      Randy Wiley

  2. John, thank you so much for your comments. It was really nice of you to take the time. I really appreciate it.

    It was in fact mixed…Pro Tools, to a Folcrom, with a Buzz Audio mic amp as make up gain. I used a Dramastic Obsidian and an Anamod ATS1 in the chain too. So very much hybrid. But crucially no desk.

    I love Gearslutz, but you have to be a little thicker skinned over there. You make the Brit vs US comparison, but GS is a UK site. Jules has been here for years.

    Where are you in the U.S?

    For Nick Tauber………
    I’ve recently seen a 2 track stereo original recording on reel of a Feb 1970 session by Cardiff Junction for GDA records engineered by yourself. A&R – Saxon & Roberts
    Two songs….
    1. Laugh at me if you want to
    2. Move on to the sun
    Do you recall this recording? what’s your views on the quality? One of your best/worst?
    Hope all’s well in your life
    Thanks
    Jeff

    Hi Jack,

    just wanted to say thanks for the article you wrote on recording guitar amps with multiple mics. Very relevant, as the band I’m currently recording were after that big sound and the reamping pink noise trick worked a treat for getting the sound we were hearing in the live room to come through the monitors in the control room! Wonderful weapon to have at my disposal.

    I also bought my AE22s on the back of your recommendation to another SOS forum poster and have to say, they’re turning out to be the best investment I have made in my studio thus far.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    • Thanks very much for taking the time to comment, Sam. I’m really glad those things worked out well for you. I’d love to hear the tracks when they’re done. All the best for now, Jack
