Let's face it, there are many recording studios in Toronto and the GTA that can set up some mics and press record. Ashton can do that too, but his projects come to life with his production and arranging skills. He also has help along the way with his team of session musicians. Whether it's rock, hip hop or pop music production, Ashton has proven himself as one of the best guys to get you a radio-ready product at a reasonable price - in the GTA and beyond!
If you think "talk is cheap", you're right. What really matters is the finished product. Click on the above demo link to listen to Ashton's demos and beats while learning more about Morph Productions. Feel free to email if you have any questions or would like to book a meeting.
Check below to see some of the exciting things that have been going on at the studio.
14 New song from my band "As the City Rumbles Underneath. I think this is one of the best things I've ever been involved in:
Here's a pic of him on the mic in the toronto studio:
10 Most of this month was spent finishing up mixing and recording numerous tracks on The Airplane Boys new mix tape "Brave New World". I've been working with these guys on and off for about 6 years and I'm just so proud with what we accomplished with these latest recordings. These guys just get better and better. Mixtape drops Feb 19th.
01 I had to replace my permaloan Fender Deville amp so I decided to get a high end '63 Fender Vibroverb kit from Marsh Amps and get local amp builder, Steve Moratto to build it. Steve was such an enthusiastic guy and put so much care into what he did and you can hear the proof. The new Fender amp just sounds incredible! It's nice to have such a great classic sound available to all those I work with. You can follow Steve here:
05 The track I produced and did the beat for for Action Jackson got licensed again, this time to "Degrassi". Congrats Bruce!
01 The Airplane Boys are back working on another album/mix tape that's going to be released in February 2013. I gotta say these guys are taking things to another level here. Album is going to turn a lot of heads.
03 Ottawa band "Connected" comes up from Ottawa for a day to lay down two new tracks. We get all the tracking done in a day and then I do all the editing/mixing after they've went back home.
Here's links to her youtube and twitter account:
Here's a fun picture collage she made of the first day in the studio.
12Begin recording Brampton recording gospel artist Moya's first EP. Moya gets her beats from various producers and writes her own songs. Gospel with an urban twist. Very cool stuff.
03 The Airplane Boys are back in the studio off an incredible first part of the year playing at both Coachella and Oceaga.
02Finished up Chadd McArthur's audio book "Don't Be A Donkey - Life Lessons from Chef Gordon Ramsay"
15 This was the month of a bunch of new toys at the studio. Also picked up a Gretsch Baritone guitar. Baritones are generally used in really heavy or country music. Go figure, there is a similarity! At any rate I really wanted to be able to add that sound to my productions and this one sounds great.
13 Recording Kirin Singh's audio book "Ki to Success". Kirin was a real trouper and got through it in two sessions.
11 Started working with a Toronto rock band called Ozgoode. We're doing pre-production demos of everything and then going to record an EP this winter. Definitely something to look forward to.
01 A few years ago when I ventured into electronic drum kits I didn't realize how much use I'd get out of it. I still do a lot of real drum stuff as well obviously but for the people who use the electronic kit the big complaint was the snare. I had the opportunity to get a bigger/better kit with a mesh snare that feels more realistic and went for it. Behold Roland V-Drums!
12 Toronto hip hop artists One Mike and Judah dropped by to lay a few tracks down before shooting a video in the coming weeks. I'll post the video up when it's done.
05 Begin Recording Bozana Skojo's audio book "Don't Get Mad, Get Successful"
02 Toronto hip hop artist Temi drops by to do 2 tracks for his mix tape.
