"The Artist's vision is ALL that matters!"
The Artist's vision is ALL that matters! To get there, it involves developing a bond that allows complete trust between you and the artist. This trust enables the artist feel safe and secure because there will be times whereby they need to show vulnerability in order express their emotions whether it is in the song-writing or performance process. During this creative time, no problem should ever be too much and no stone left un-turned when exploring creative avenues in order to achieve the final vision.
Ultimately, the process should always be fun!
"I'm one of those musicians who truly only wants to worry about my part in the process and he's been there supporting my creative and technical needs in every live sound situation and within the studio." Dave Soothill
- Wouldn’t it be great to be able to sing from the comfort of your own home?
- Being able to perform in a space where you feel safest.
- Having an engineer that can take care of all the technical aspects of recording, allowing you to concentrate on the most important thing, singing.
- What if you were able to do this in something like a Zoom call so that you can see and talk with your engineer?
Well, it is now possible to achieve this using Cubase and VST CONNECT.
More recently, it has really come into its own during the global pandemic of 2020 because it has enabled artists and producers to continue working.
The benefits are that:
- Artists aren’t paying higher studio costs.
- The times are more flexible to suit.
- You are able to perform in the comfort of your own space.
What does the artist need?
Essentially, all you require are:
- Stable Internet connection (Ethernet to router is best)
- A microphone
- An audio interface
- A pair of headphones
"VST remote recording is a great option to Artist and musicians who cannot get around for whatever reason. I will continue to work with Robbie Dwyer, he is an artist's dream team dream. I will recommend Robbie to artists who really want a great audio engineer/musician/producer they can trust, making sure things are done right!" Jhelisa Anderson (Bjork, Chaka Khan, The Shamen)
Objectivity is something that can be very difficult to do when you have been spending many hours crafting your music. It can lead to a situation where your song feels like a very good representation of what you are wanting to achieve. However, by collaborating and working together, we are able to get your music to its full potential and taking it to the next level, ready to be mastered and released to your awaiting audience.
What can I offer you?
Firstly, I am happy to do one *Free Sample mix of your song. It is an opportunity to see whether I am right for your project. That way there is no obligation or exchange of money initially and an opportunity to build a working relationship should you wish to continue, then we can discuss your project and rates per project whether it is just one song, an EP or Full Album.
Again, the main objective is ensuring that the song and your vision is served as you intended.

Making music whether it is as a song-writer or band should be first and foremost fun! However, this does take a bit of time to prepare to ensure that the song is the best it can be. This maybe in the form of working with loops and trying to find a vibe or spending time with a band and exchanging ideas. Once this has been achieved, then it is time to decide the best way to record depending on budgets and time.
It is important to have the right tools for the creative process whether that is through drum sounds, loops, synths and other effects, which is why I make sure I have a range of these different tools at your disposal and to enable you to achieve your sonic soundscapes.
When working with bands, I particularly like to be able to try and capture everyone together because the results in terms of performance and energy are vastly different to the linear recording approach. Likewise, it is not always important to work with a click because ultimately you want something that you can be proud of and not have the technology dictate the performance.
Once the core elements have been laid down, we can then work on repairing and overdubbing the parts. It is important to have everyone involved in the process and to be ready so that members are able to lay down their parts as and when, including the singer because you can guarantee that if you leave the vocals to last, they will come unstuck pretty quickly!
