Concerto is equally capable in the audio disciplines of recording and mastering. Both disciplines are similar in that they demand close attention to acoustic detail and artistic integrity in order to achieve the most accurate recordings.
In mastering, David offers seventeen years of experience having mastered over five hundred projects (please see credits) that include classical, rock, country, jazz, gospel, vocal, R&B and hip hop.
David's thirty-eight years of experience in recording has developed from the hundreds of live performance and studio sessions all over the Cleveland area, in addition to Cleveland State University, where he resides as full time audio engineer in the music department. His experience includes years of recording sessions with The Cleveland Chamber Symphony, The Cleveland Comtemporary Players, The Cleveland Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra in residence at Cleveland State University.
His approach to each project is the same: plan, execute, and make it sound the best it can, all at a reasonable cost.
