I'm Stephen Sherrard. A professional music producer, recording engineer, and award winning mixing engineer, with more than 20 years of experience.

I love to write and share my knowledge for the next generation of music producers and engineers! The Music And Technology Blog will be where I post my own articles and advice on such topis as: Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Music Production, and more.

Check back from time to time, or use the email subscribe form or RSS feed to keep informed when I post something new. I'm lucky if I have time to post one new article a week, so you won't be bombarded with noticed!

In addition, I've consolidated some of the better music and recording industry feeds under the Industry Feed tab, so it's a great place to stop by and see all the latest news!
