Eric Valentine has been obsessed with recording music and sound for over 25 years. From his very first Tascam 244 Portastudio to the Neve 88R, Eric has had his hands on just about every piece of equipment designed for the purpose of recording sound. He brings the perspective and vision of an end user – that is still actively making records every day – to the design process. Striving to fulfill needs and solve problems of todays record makers, Eric has created UnderTone Audio as an outlet for these ideas to be available to studios, engineers, mixers and producers outside the walls of his own studio.
