Remote Recording Services

Beethoven Sonata’s

I have been recording some classical piano remotely with ProTools 12 on my laptop. So far, so good. Stable, fidelity is excellent.  I can do remote recordings in either PT 12 or 10 depending on your expectations.  Call for rates!

We’re Moving ~ So, let’s Party! Open House Party 11/19 at Freds Place (Next Door)

Fred Place

By now you may have heard that this location of The Cave is shuttering due to new owners and “progress”.  I’ll be relocating to my home in Woodside, so stay tuned for updates as to when that “Cave” is up and running.  On Saturday 11/19 I will be throwing an Open House as well as a Jam at Freds Place, right next door to The Cave in Mountain View, CA, on the border of Palo Alto. You’ll be treated to the Cave Hospitality and music to be performed by The AJ Crawdaddy Band with many Special Guests.  So, put it on your calendar and come say goodbye to The Cave as we know and love it today!
