TESTIMONIALS

Don’t just take our word for it.
Read what some of our clients have to say about their experience working with Redshift sound.

Dr. Kuiper’s Elixir of Sound produce cinematic sound scapes which tend to be complex and multi layered. We found that Si had the ability to, ‘hear,’ all the nuances in our music and understood both where we were coming from, as creators, and where we wanted to be upon finishing the mastering phase. Si accomplished that professionally for us by bringing his technical, diplomatic and listening skills to our project. We can confidently say that the polish, presence and quality feel of our final sound is directly attributable to Si’s work on this project. As far as Dr. Kuiper’s Elixir of Sound are concerned Si comes highly recommended. You won’t be disappointed.

“I have known and worked with Si Hardacre now for more than 2 years – in a number of capacities – and Si never ceases to deliver in spades and impress me with his professional approach, his enthusiasm, knowledge and his hard work.

We first worked together as fellow musicians – and he is an annoyingly talented, adept and confident guitar player.
More recently he has become the number 1 call as live sound engineer and producer/engineer for the Pink Floyd tribute band that I am in.
It’s fair to say that he has become an indispensable, much respected and well liked member of the gang – and that we wouldn’t think of trying to find anyone else to look after the critical front of house mix for us.

His unflappable nature inspires confidence – and the results he achieves never fail to win us amazing feedback from a discerning audience for the quality of the sound that we (or more accurately – he) deliver. Si always finds ways to improve our sound and his investment of time and effort are massively appreciated.

It is the same with our recorded output too. There is an extremely knowledgeable and critical audience for Pink Floyd’s music – and Si works tirelessly to ensure that what we capture is not only faithful to the original (where it needs to be) but also stands on its own in terms of quality and production values.

Having worked with sound engineers in my day job as the owner of an events and video production agency for the last 30 years or so there is another quality that I have concluded marks out the people that succeed – it’s the “Do I actually want to spend time with this person” test – and Si passes that with flying colours. He is a top bloke who cares about what he does, listens to what you say – and repays that with first rate results. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

I needed to record a CD for my Hypnotherapy Practice sessions and was extremely unfamiliar with the process of recording, having never done anything similar before. Si was the person who made the whole process not only easy and stress-free but enjoyable. His knowledge and ability was clearly obvious and I felt instantly at ease. He gave me clear guidance and instruction and I found it interesting and if I am honest it was a pleasure. He was patient and the CD was recorded relatively swiftly. I received the completed recording a few days later and it’s quality and the volume balance of voice to backing track was perfect. It allowed my voice to be clearly heard and the background track to be subtle. A difficult and demanding ask and he did it without a problem. I was delighted with the CD which has proved extremely effective and I have referred many of my hypnotherapy colleagues to him.

“Just a line to say thanks again for the recent gig at The Fleece and to generally keep in touch. The rest of the band have all said since the gig how good the sound/ monitoring was on stage and friends have said how good it was out front.”

Simon is a first class sound engineer with the “magic ears”, a calm and reassuring approach and the audio skills to give me a fantastic monitor mix that enables me to relax and focus on my playing. Simon has engineered a number of shows in which I have played and I can honestly say that each time he has given me the best drum sound I have ever had. Really looking forward to recording with him!
