Preproduction

Ian places a heavy emphasis on preproduction prior to track recording. The aim of preproduction is to ensure that both songs and performers are ready for studio recording, and that the producer understands the artist's aspirations for the final product.

 

Preproduction is usually informed by:


Demo recording

Song development day

Tempo mapping and building groove tracks

Guide tracking (if required)



Recording

Ian has ongoing collaborations across numerous studios having previously worked in Windmill Lane, Konk, Unwound and Strongroom Studios. Studios are picked according to the artist's budget and desired sound. 



Mixing

Mixing is tailored to the artist's needs. Artists are free to attend all mixing sessions. Ian is determined for artists to be 100% proud of the final product, by ensuring that artists are aware and involved with the decisions made and the expected output.

 


Mastering

Ian also has extensive experience in mastering across a vast array of genres including but not exclusive to tracks he has produced.


I've had the pleasure of working with Ian Flynn for a number of years, across multiple music projects. I always keep coming back to Ian, and I have recommended him to plenty in the music industry who have gone on to enjoy successful relationships with him too.


Ian is straightforward in his approach. He knows his stuff inside out, and will work with you to get what you want. He is super-prompt, and the most reliable man in music. Everything is done to a high standard, ahead of schedule.


On top of that, Ian is a great communicator who understands the often touchy dynamics of music.

Nishant Joshi - The Palpitations/Kill the Icon


My band and I have worked with Ian on a number of projects. He has been nothing but professional from start to finish - always super efficient and communicative, and also such a fantastic creative input.


He will always go to extra mile to get it right, and will prioritise getting the best out of the track above all else. He creates such a great working environment and puts everyone at ease.


We will also put the work in up front to understand exactly what will work best for the project. Can't recommend Ian enough.

Siân Alex - Gold Baby

Ian goes above and beyond for every project i have worked with him on.
He understands what I am trying to achieve and gets me across the line every time. He is incredibly patient with the more troublesome musicians, and knows how to get the best out of people, plus isn't afraid to give criticism to get even more out of you. He has helped me to get vocal takes i am actually happy with.
He helps to build your sound, chips in good ideas, a good selection of pedals and makes you often think outside of the box.
An incredible chap and wouldn't want to work with anyone else going forward.
