The track playing was recorded by Jake at a live gig in Thame, Oxfordshire. This track and 11 others performed by Paul Vernon Chester & Nick Mellor are available on the Fret Records CD "Duets for Django" (FJCD120)

With over 30 years of practical experience in recording, editing and mastering for commercial releases I specialize in Multi-track recording, Digital mixing and CD mastering using the latest technology.

I have a fully equipped digital studio based in Oxfordshire and can provide on-site recording using some of the best microphones available anywhere.

Results are everything - let your ears be the judge!

- Quality costs, but not always as much as you might expect!

I have a vast range of experience which covers: playing, engineering, production and the use of analogue and digital recording equipment. Having specified and built 2 commercial recording studios I also have my own superb dedicated studio and editing facility. I continue to play live and also work on sessions. In addition I have extensive live recording experience and can produce ‘Red Book’ mastered CD’s for release….along with graphics.



The following are samples of live recordings made over the last few months:

School choir

Solo piano

Guitar duo

Saxophone Quartet

School Big Band

Below is a sample from a recent studio multi-track recording session:

House of Rhythm

Mastering - from this to this (extracts)

Blue Eyed Assassin - Original

Blue Eyed Assassin - JK rework & Master

(Blue Eyed Assassin is an original tune written, recored & produced by Tom Ivey)

EQ'ing, compression, limiting, stereowidth enhancement, de-clicking, editing, track ordering, track level balancing, topping & tailing, mixing, fault finding, repairs, noise reduction or removal are just some of the capabilities. I can produce Red Book CD-DA (with text), Blue Book CD-XA (dual platform) or vastly superior sounding MP3's for download sites.

I use processors and plugins from the accepted industry leaders including Isotope & Waves (Diamond Bundle). The backbone of the set-up is the Universal Audio hardware accelerated plug-ins including Pultec-pro EQ, Fairchild compressors and the superb UA mastering suite.
