Hello and welcome to my humble Phat Monkey homepage hailing from Wales in the United Kingdom. I dabble with music production, mixing, basic mastering, a sprinkle of ghost writing and other boomage as well as being a photo editor. In the distant past I have been involved on the Dj side of things and had a slight resurrection a couple of years ago when I released the chart topping annual mix series ‘Ibiza Beach Bar Grooves’which was made available via Beatport, volume one reached chart position 8 followed by volume 2 at chart position 4!! Unfortunately as of December 2017 Beatport no longer support DJ mixes. I recently in 2019 created a profile called V.C.A for ‘VoiceAttack’ which allows users to use spoken words boasting over 321 commands for Cubase by Steinberg speeding user work-flow by up to 20% or more. Cubase is a professional digital audio workstation by Steinberg allowing users to create awesome music, go check Cubaseout today! If you have any questions feel free to ask me, I am nobody special, just a normal humble approachable laid back guy on a journey through life same as you. All that is left for me to say now is peace love and respect, may your journey lead you to your chosen destination xXx
AVAILABLE NOW AND ONLY $8 USD!
I am pleased to announce V.C.A (Voice Command Assistant) profile for ‘VoiceAttack’ to use alongside ‘Cubase’ by Steinberg is now available to buy. Steinberg were kind enough to allow me to give reference to Cubase in the description and the awesome developer of ‘VoiceAttack’ has given the green light. There is nothing worse while starting out remembering all the keyboard short-cuts for your DAW that may interfere with your creativity and that feeling of being totally lost. V.C.A can help with all that but on the other hand it is very important to learn keyboard short-cuts in your own time simply because not all studios will be using V.C.A and knowing short-cuts that will help you look professional in front of your friends and clients. I have spent many countless hours programming in and testing over 321 commands, yes I went crazy over the top, I just kept adding but at some point I had to stop. Please download the PDF manual above for a full list of available spoken commands and watch the brief overview video on this page. Many years ago I had to use another studio to produce my music as I could not afford the equipment involved, I remember the studio was owned by a wheelchair bound music engineer John, he suffered with a muscle wasting disease and thinking back something like V.C.A would have been perfect for him and I am sure right now as I type this short story there is someone in a similar situation, I really do hope V.C.A can help and assist you in the studio no matter your circumstance, everyone deserves an opportunity to make awesome music…

Want an affordable master of your track(s)?I will master your song so that is ready for club play, balance the low end, widening or lowering the stereo field in certain frequencies ensuring your track is mono compatible for playing out!I have a wealth of tools at my disposal to make a basic master of your song, note this is not professional mastering, this is mastering on a budget a service I am offering to help those starting out that cant afford hundreds of pounds or dollars to get their song mastered. Things to take into consideration:Make sure your song is as good sounding and mixed down well as it can be, this will ensure that the mastering process can take your song to the next level. Do not be fooled into thinking that a lazy mixed track is going to sound better during mastering, if your song is mixed badly then mastering will make it even worse although some issues can be dealt with during mastering.Ensure you leave enough headroom for mastering, - 18db to -5db should be fine, if you are sending a 32bit then as long as your song has not clipped during mixing then do not worry if it is closer to 0db. Do not send MP3 files, send a WAV (wave) file and ensure you have bonced it down to 44khz and upwards at 24bits (32 bit float would be a bonus). Please email for more info: email@example.com
Do you want your DJ mix to stand out and sound consistent? Then this is the service for you, I was a DJ for many years starting in 1998 and being a music engineer with his own home studio gives me countless tools at my disposal to master your mix.Why Master A Dj Mix?Imagine the scenario, you are DJing live (or not) and your volume is bouncing all over the place, in fact listen to your mix first few songs then skip to the last few songs and I can guarantee a noticeable volume change. Most people may be tempted to reach for the normalise option but this can mess with the dynamics, my approach is to dynamically compress the mix getting them volumes under control. Sometimes songs that feature in a DJ mix can sound lacklustre and weak compared to the original track, this is usually because of extra processing during the mix session, I can warm things up by gently adding harmonic distortion to the mix warming the mix back up!Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Want a simple homepage like mine?Main benefit to my design is based on the layout and speed in which a page will load for your visitors, last thing you want is a slow website as visitors will be put off. My approach is to design a site that actually loads almost entirely as your visitor enters whether is it a one page site or several pages, this means navigating will be extremely fast as you may have noticed already.Lets talk numbers:An average visitor to this siteon a decent broadband connection can expect to download the site in their browser within 0.32 seconds on top of that you have to add server speed which is around 0.11 seconds, yeah that is fast!Important:Before having a website built you will need to have bought a domain name, this is the URL address of your website, for example mine is PhatMonkey.me. You can buy domain names from companies like Godaddy. You will then need somewhere to host your website, your website can then be uploaded to your host and linked to your domain name. My advice is to buy hosting from Godaddy as they also give you a choice of a free domain name with your hosting account.Please note I have no affiliation with Godaddy but I have used them for many years.Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
