The Matt Heinecke Ghost EP (right click and "save-as") 2003
Producer Dave Tough teamed up with guitarist/vocalist Matt Heinecke to record a 5 song demo
of some of Matt's best recent work. Dave recorded the five songs, then asked me to mix and
disc. Mixing was done in Pro Tools, utilizing a Pro-Control 24 surface.

Jonny Ill performs Hot mp3 (right click and "save-as") 2001
Jonny brought me this track as a basic drum machine track with some well mixed vocals, and
wanted to shoot a music video. It needed a little more. Taking the 2-channel mixdown, I then added
multiple layers to the mix, bass / keyboards / samples to spice it up a little. Later I did a little
EQing and enhanced the bass using a subharmonic maximizer plugin.
Lambs Among Wolves performs Hold Me Down mp3 (right click and "save-as") 2000
Brent Wheeler, the lead vocalist / songwriter for this project was a regular at Musician's Institute
in Hollywood where I attended recording classes. This mix was my final project for the last
semester. It has a unique, acoustically driven tilt to the mix - I liked the way the acoustic guitar
seemed to rock. The track was mixed on a Neve VX.
Destined performs I Believe in Jesus mp3 (right click and "save-as") 1999
A project began while I was in high school and not completed till 2 years later, destined was to
be a compilation of the songs our chapel band performed on a weekly basis at school.
I Believe in Jesus started out as a sequence in Cubase. With a basic scratch vocal track as
a guide, I miked all seven of us singing together with a stereo pair of CAD Equitek 3000's
positioned in a triangulated pattern. Live drums were overdubed, as were then guitars, and
finally bass. In case you are wondering, yes, that is an actual Fender Rhodes 88 I had the
honor of playing. Final mixes were done using 2 computers to sync the cubase material into
a SoundCraft console. Mastering was performed in Pro-Tools by Chris Jensen.
