My name is Declan Taylor, I am 19 years old and currently in the second year of studying HND Sound Production at Glasgow Clyde College. During this course I am studying different aspects of sound production such as acoustics, sound production theory, creative industries infrastructure, digital audio theory and multi-track recording/mixing. My interest in sound production started in advanced higher music and has expanded from there. I hope to attend Glasgow Caledonian University to study either Audio Production or Audio Systems Engineering for a further 2 years and attain my bachelor’s degree. During my time at college I have met some talented and inspiring engineers who will influence me in my work in the years to come.
After studying sound production at both high school and college level I have developed the ability to record, mix and master multitrack sessions to a high standard. At home I have an iMac with Pro Tools 12 software. My interface is a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. I also have a Behringer DI box and an Akai MPD218. I can arrange for studio time where appropriate and where either wanted or needed.
As part of my HND course I study audio for multimedia. I can reproduce sound to go along with a video clip or movie reel.
Thanks to studying the creative industries I have a broad up to date understanding of the current music industry so as well as doing all of the engineering work for your album, EP, or even just one song. I can produce, promote and sell either physical or digital copies of your recording. Whatever you desire. I can also cover all of the boring legal stuff with contracts, copyright and licensing for your music as well as giving advice for issues in this area so that you get what you are entitled to.
