TDA is locally operated in Cincinnati, Ohio - a beautiful location, in itself - centrally located within easy striking distance of Columbus, Indianapolis and Louisville, and within five hours of Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Nashville and Charleston. I have been in business since 1991, featuring the FIRST Portable Timecode DAT Recorder in Ohio, (if not the entire Midwest). Quite the pioneer, I know. 

Of course, these days, everything is non-linear. The DAT machines have long since been retired. 

I am a Sound Supervisor, responsible for overall sound design, production sound recording, dialog editing, ADR, VO, Foley, sound effects design, and/or final re-recording.

What's in the box: 

Production • In order to capture all the sounds and voices, over the years, I have acquired quite a collection of devices and doodads. The collection contains, but is not limited to: Sound Devices 664 Mixer/Recorder, allowing recording of six iso-tracks, plus two separate stereo mixes, complete with timecode; Sound Devices 744T Audio Recorder; Fostex PD-4 Timecode DAT Recorder (hasn't left the house in years, but I keep it around because it's pretty cool to look at... Technically, I still have a PD-2, but it popped and fizzled and nearly caught fire the last time I tried to power it up); Ambient and Denecke Smart Slates; SQN 4S Four Channel Stereo Mixer; A handy little collection of Schoeps Microphones including an M/S Stereo Rig; A similarly impressive collection of microphones by Sennheiser - MKH 50, 60 and 70 (a microphone for every occasion); Rycote Shockmounts and Windscreens; Lectrosonics Wireless Microphone Transmitters and Receivers; Sonatrim, Tram and Countryman (hair mic) Lavs; Comtek Wireless Headsets; Zaxcom Stereoline Camera Hop; Transcription mp3 Recorders; And, of course, piles and piles of cables and miscellaneous support equipment. 

Postproduction • The heart of the studio is Pro Tools HD. For serious, down and dirty mixing to picture, I don't think anything else can compare. There are lots of great DAW software packages out there, but there's a reason Pro Tools is the "industry standard."
