Studio Production

Producing a CD is more than just twiddling knobs – it’s about creating a comfortable working environment and getting the best out of people. Then it’s about capturing what the musicians have played to get the most out of it for the listener.

Andrew Cadie started recording music as a child on cassette tapes and reel-to-reel machines, bouncing sounds backwards and forwards, building up soundscapes, cutting and sticking the tape and experimenting with textures. He then moved on to multitrack tape machines, ADAT and then while studying at Newcastle University, he was introduced to computer-based recording and editing. Having worked with all these media, one thing has stuck with him – it’s the performance that counts. His open, focused, easy-going nature puts musicians at ease and helps to create that special take.

During his teens, Andrew spent his weekends helping out in-demand engineer Paul V. Smith with live sound, who trained him up in the basics of the trade. He got plenty of experience in Paul’s studio too.

Now Andrew Cadie has more than 10 years experience as a studio producer/engineer in his own right, with countless commercially available recordings under his belt, many of which have been play-listed on radio stations in Germany, the UK and worldwide.
