Confessions of an Audiophile

I have been interested in knobs, buttons, and faders since I first learned to work a stereo cassette player. I began recording music with a 4-track machine at age 13. That same year, I entered my first commercial recording studio complete with a Harrison analog console and I have been hooked on 'the little red button' ever since. By college I had acquired my first digital recording program, Cool Edit Pro. Since then I have continued to build a collection of analog and digital gear to suit my music production needs. I have worked with ADATs, DA-88's, MiniDiscs, and DATs as well as Pro Tools and Cubase DAWs. Apaulo Productions currently uses Logic Pro for tracking and editing and Harrison's Mix Bus software for mixing and mastering.


Aside from my own experiences, I have benefited from the sage wisdom of my peers. My passion for recording has been recognized and nurtured by top engineers and producers like Mark Moffatt (The Saints, Yothu Yindi), Shawn Berman (Guns n Roses, Toto), Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steve Miller Band), John Billings (Monte Montgomery), and Michael St Leon (George Thorogood, Buddy Guy) - all of whom have inspired, advised, and encouraged me along my journey as a recordist. I try to honor their contributions by passing along my love of the studio to others with an interest in the recording arts.          



My engineering and production credits include several Indie and DIY releases as well as a mountain of unreleased demos and EP's. (Samples Below)
