Jeff works mostly in Logic Pro, recording through an Apogee interface and monitoring through Genelecs. His equipment list includes a Harpejji K24, a Haken Continuum, a Roland RD-800 piano and controller, a pair of AKG 414s and Neumann KLM 184s, a Neumann U87, and various keyboards and percussion. There is a separate 18' x 11' recording room adjacent to the control room, which can easily accommodate up to 4 players or singers.
Downton Shabby is a chill, creative, and welcoming space, and most importantly, what comes out of it sounds great! With Jeff at the helm, it is available for all sorts of musical projects, from composing, arranging, and producing to straight recording. Jeff is also happy to add keyboards, vocals, harpejji, and continuum to whatever's rolling.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Downton Shabby is currently not offering in-person sessions. Jeff still is producing tracks there, however, and working remotely with others.
