“Digital audio has come a long way in the last decade. The options available in sample-based midi and effects processing are overwhelming. It’s easy to become buried in all the technology at hand.”
Jono has been immersed in these modern methods of sound design and manipulation over the years and continues to try to push their limits in terms of possibility. At the end of the day however, these are only tools; a solid background in old school technique is required to use these tools effectively and transparently. “I think a lot of the best editing, processing and sound enhancement goes unnoticed (as it should…)”
With 25 years invested in music production in all forms, Jono has encountered the compass in all corners of the studio with a specialty in the recording, mixing and editing of acoustic instruments and vocals where his arrangement skills come into play.
Jono’s “Victory Drive Studio” is well equipped both physically and virtually featuring a variety of vintage instruments, pro audio gear and the most progressive audio applications and sample libraries.
