This Los Angeles based British music producer has played a fundamental part in the creation of platinum winning and billboard-soaring albums; as well as the development of many of today’s successful artists’ careers.

Warren Huart is known for his hard work ethic, positive attitude and respect for the artist’s vision. Many of his long term work relationships have turned into close friendships. With over 20 years of experience in the ever expanding music industry (record production, engineering, mixing and song writing), as well as his extensive knowledge of musical equipment used yesterday and today, Warren manages to create the most diverse sound around. I love to listen to someone that really knows what they are talking about and Warren knows what he’s talking about.

The 1-minute Microphone Set-Up for the Zoom Q4n Recorder

I fell in love with the Zoom Q4n Portable Recorder. It’s a powerful recording device that is capable of making fine quality recordings that can do your original songs justice. Do yourself a favor and check this instrument out. I use it for quick song ideas and even music that I use for Youtube videos. Actually the quality is soo good and the settings with mic techniques like A/B or X/Y configuration are built-in along with room effects and auto gains. It’s pro recording whether your in a recording space or out in the field. Awesome!
