= Tom Garneau =

Hi, my name is Tom Garneau. Based in Minneapolis, I'm a freelance engineer/producer involved in all aspects of recorded music; recording, mixing, live recording, mastering & consulting. I also teach an advanced engineering course at I.P.R.

I started out in my own basement 1/2-inch 8-track studio in 1981 and in the following years recorded many of Mpls' great and near great. AUDIOACTIVE, my all purpose audio and production company, was established in 1987. From 1988 till 1996, I was on staff at Paisley Park Studios. By nature I'm a Neve/API/GML kind of guy, but I'm equally at home on an SSL. These days you can make a great record anywhere. I work at commercial studios, artist studios and sometimes I setup my portable 24 track studio (complete with vintage mics) in the strangest of places...

On April 24, 2000 I received the Minnesota Music Award for Engineer/Producer of the year. Thanks!

All Music Guide has an extensive listing under my name.
(Even stuff I forgot working on.)
