Bringing the ondes Martenot to you.

If you are working on some music and you want it to feature the sound of the ondes Martenot, it has never been easier than this. You are only a few clicks away from bespoke, high-quality recordings that will slot right into your project.

I have provided material for soundtracks, albums, and events from the comfort of my home studio, and my clients have always been happy with my work. Previously, I have worked from scores, parts recorded on other instruments, and I have written my own ondes parts and arrangements, so I will be able to work in a way that suits your project.

I record in my home studio with the following equipment and software;

  • Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre X

  • Focal CMS50 Monitor Speakers

  • Microphones by Audio Technica, Beyerdynamic, Oktava, Rode, and Shure

  • Ableton Live 9 & 10

  • Logic Pro X

  • MacBook Pro

I currently have D1 (principal), D2 (resonance) and D3 (métallique) speakers. D4 (palme) will be available soon. Additionally, my ondes also has an insert on the D1 channel, and a number of line outputs, so can be used with effects pedals, etc.

The beautiful sound of the ondes had me wanting to include it in my own music. Josh recorded a part for me which I am incredibly pleased with! I hold Josh’s talents in very high regard and look forward to working with him again in the future
