tech and consultation

Here are some other recording and live sound-related services that I can provide. Please contact me and we’ll discuss details.

Audio Editing, Noise Reduction, Restoration, Archiving

///Eliminating or reducing noise on audio files.
I have done this in a variety of capacities: from interviews on old cassette tapes, to cleaning up 911 calls for better legibility, and noise reducing soundtrack music for film.

///Editing
I can trim and arrange audio files to seamlessly eliminate unwanted material.

//Archiving
I have experience with organizing and archiving audio files through my experience with Pickathon

Live Sound Consultation & Instruction

///Live Sound Seminars
I have organized and conducted live sound seminars at Portland’s Mississippi Studios for groups of middle school students through the French American International School.

///Live Sound Instruction
I am available for live sound instruction for any size group, and also for live sound-related consultation. I have experience teaching small groups of teenagers how to do live sound through the Portland School of Rock and Young Audiences, and designed a curriculum for Young Audiences, which I co-taught as a series of classes in Spring on 2015.

Tech

I can calibrate your tape machine to whatever specifications you need. I have access to a 2″ calibration tape, but you’ll need your own with other formats.

Want to know how so you can do it yourself? I can run you through the process and explain how and why.

///Wiring and cable repair.
