preamble Having gained my skills as a sound engineer working for the BBC for over a decade, mainly for Radio 3 and 4, I now provide these creative and focused services on a freelance basis. I specialise in audio drama and documentary, but have also worked in theatre sound and produced audio packages for the web. I have a full drama /doc OB kit including Neumann 191 MS-stereo mic for the best location sound, and work from various UK locations including my own post-production facility in Manchester. A high level of post-production expertise mixing with Pro Tools 8, a 1TB sfx library and many waves and audioease plug-ins to create the best sound world and provide a solution to all audio requirements.
