Adam Staff

Music producer, engineer and programmer.


Music Production

Making each song its best; whether booking rooms, choosing microphones, tweaking synths or talking philosophy.

Read my making of the 2016 Town of Cats album here.

Recording, Editing, Mixing and Mastering

Expert ears and an acoustically treated and calibrated mix studio. Full live recording rig.

As heard on recordings for ABRSM, Town of Cats, Cloude Atlas, Tout Croche, Deadwall, Black Water County and more.

Audio Programming

Customised music and sound programming in Max and Pure Data, for OSX and Windows.

As seen at the Tate Modern, Aberdeen University and online.


In my 15 years as a practicing musician, I have been at one time or another a rhythm guitarist, jazz bassist, hip-hop basement producer, bedroom songwriter and recordist, post-modern improviser, audio programmer, recording studio technician, music tutor and record producer.

As musician, engineer and producer I have worked at hundreds of venues, dozens of festivals (HCMF, Brighton Fringe, The Great Escape etc.), numerous professional recording studios (Brighton Electric, Limefield, Metway, GTM) and plenty of bedrooms, attics and kitchens.

Located near Brighton in Sussex, I work from a treated and calibrated project studio which combines key pieces of world-class gear with a collection of DIY and classic mics and synths.

I also run a full 24-channel live recording rig, along with a compact rig perfect for acoustic, classical and jazz concerts.

Typical Rates

Per track / project deals, and multiple role deals (e.g. production + mixing) negotiable. Let me know the details and if I like what you're doing, there's usually a way that we can make it work on your budget.
