Tracking/Editing/Mixing: 

~ Cozy Tracking Spaces ~ Great sounds ~ Individual Headphone Mixes ~ Enough separation
to record a full band and punch-in individual parts ~ Great sounding live-mixes at the end of the session.


Mastering

~ Final projects are delivered as DDP Files and/or Red Book Masters ~ I use Digital and Analog gear to make your mixes, louder, wider and more detailed. Most of all, I make them more consistent from system to system ~ If you are selling your cd on the web, it’s a good idea to encode ISRC Codes on your Master CD. ”Encoded ISRC provide the means to automatically identify recordings for royalty payments.”
ISRC Codes... You can get them here.

Remote Recordings:

~ I have a 64 Channel redundant-record rig for remotes. 
There are rental rigs in town to cover track-counts beyond 64 Channels.


Comforts:
The studio is walking distance to great restaurants and bakeries ... and, I can always make great coffee!

I'm a bassist and playing bass brought me to Los Angeles from Baton Rouge in the 1980s. I also play the piccolo bass; a hi strung bass that sounds like a thick guitar. It can be played acoustically or through guitar amps. This instrument has become a unique sound in my productions. Since the early 90's I've recorded, mixed, mastered and/or produced many different artist. Over the years, my desire for good recordings has deepened, making odark30 what it is today. I’ve played bass with different artists including Tommy Tutone, Tori Amos, David Cassidy, Stryper, Wendy Maharry, Thompson Twins, Eric Carmen, Leroux and Cory Sipper. Commercial recordings include:  Coke, "ABC 7" Chicago, General Mills, Asics, Kawasaki, Outback Steakhouse, Saturn and Korean Airlines. I also have background in Analog Tape-Archiving and building "Super-Pro-Tools Rigs" for Film Orchestra Dates.
