Introducing Amplifindr: Get local studio time

Thanks for joining me!

I have loved music since my childhood, I’d always enjoyed singing and listening, but I wanted more involvement so once I reached school age I began lessons on the violin and piano. I didn’t know anything about production until I reached 17, I took a music production A-Level by recommendation of my guitar teacher and found that I enjoyed it even more than playing. After sixth form, I went to the Abbey Road Institute to do an Advanced Diploma in Production and Sound Engineering. Upon finishing the course, I interned at Studios 301 in Australia for 2 months and then returned to England to begin working as an assistant at Dean Street Studios where I currently am.

As a young assistant engineer, producer and musician, I have found that many creatives are not getting the exposure they deserve for several reasons. For artists – getting studio time or equipment can be expensive, and knowing how to work it all is another issue entirely. On the other hand, many engineers and producers with setups find themselves working for free to gain clients in the earlier stages (up to 93% according to a survey we sent out), or wish to attain more experience in recording others, but many opportunities in commercial studios such as internships are not feasible.

Amplifindr is creating a way for everyone to win. Hosts can list their home/small scale recording setups on our website and get paid when artists book time at their spaces (with or without assistance from the host as an engineer and/or producer), whilst also allowing hosts to gain more experience in recording others, build up a client base, and of course – get paid for their time. Simultaneously, we are allowing artists to access recording equipment that they may not have, meet producers and engineers that they could end up working with long term who understand their music and visions, and also have a chance to learn more about recording equipment, workflow and production in general.

Amplifindr is being developed with everyone in mind – we want to see young and new creatives thriving, networking, doing what they love, and getting the recognition they deserve.
