In house engineer David McCabe has over 10 years of recording, producing and mixing experience. He has material released on Universal Publishing, EMI and Warner Chappel. Music he has written/produced & mixed has gone on to be broadcast on XFM, Radio 1. Channel 4 and Sky Sports.
David specialises in anything electronic, indie, dance orientated and loves working with bands of all genres. He’s recently collaborated with Owen Morris (Oasis, The Verve, Electronic) on a forthcoming release and also worked with Steve Osborne (U2, Happy Mondays). For a showreel of David’s work please click HERE or check out any of the list of bands he has worked with in the side bar.
The key to a great recording is the sound of the rooms in the studio itself and at Muthers there are some amazing sounding spaces. The control room has a large, dry wood cabin feel, it’s great for recording acoustic instruments and voice. The smaller live room is acoustically dead and this allows any sound to be captured cleanly & accurately whilst the large, open conservatory space makes any drum kit sound Huge and the room is large enough to track a big band, choir or even a small orchestra!
