About Me

Hi! My name is Steven and I am the owner and operator of 4D Audio Productions. I started my first recording studio internship in 2004 at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, NY. I immediately fell in love with the music production process and I soon found myself researching how to build my own studio. My friends and I cleared out a guest bedroom in my parents basement, and soon that became my first studio. I spent countless hours in there writing, arranging, and recording my own original music.

When I was applying to colleges, the most important criteria was finding a school with an on-campus recording studio. I committed to the Frost School of Music, at University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. I majored in Music Business, and spent most of my extra-curricular time either playing table tennis, or recording music. Being a Music Business major, I could only work in the on-campus recording studio when teaming up with a Music Engineering major. This didn’t hinder my efforts. I fostered great partnerships, friendships, and was a part of many projects there. I was more motivated, however, to begin building a recording rig of my own, to use on my own terms. I started recording projects for artists on campus, and slowly built both a collection of recording equipment, and a good reputation. I began taking on projects for University students, musical artists, and small businesses in the Miami area. I also began running live sound, and worked with three on-campus ensembles, many senior recitals, and various University-affiliated events. After graduation, I moved back to NY, and into the city intent on building my first full-time recording studio.  

In 2014 I had the pleasure of working with Ron Saint Germain. (If you don’t know him, look him up. His work speaks for itself.) Soon after I started 4D Audio Productions. I have been fortunate ever since to work on so many great projects with so many great people. My recording sessions seem to always have an underlying excitement and positive energy. I encourage you to listen to my recordings: they best represent what I do. Hope to see you on the other side!

Finding Steven through Thumbtack was perhaps the best thing that’s happened to me as a musician. In working with Steven on my debut EP, I not only found a great musical collaborator, but a trusted adviser and partner in the music industry.

I worked with Steven to record and produce my debut 6-song EP. Not only are his rates beyond competitive given his skill and equipment, but Steven believed in the project, took a personal interest, and leveraged his industry connections to bring in some world class talent to contribute to the record, making it of a quality beyond my expectations. Through Steven I can say that I’ve worked not only with the talents at 4D Audio, but with top notch session musicians fresh off international tours, and a 12-Time Grammy winning mix engineer.
I can’t recommend working with Steven any higher — you can find plenty of people who will bring you in, press record, and send you on your way...Steven will help bring your music to the next level. I look forward to continuing my musical partnership with Steven for years to come.

Steven was able to rectify some huge issues that I had with a previous producer, and returned my files to their more organic and natural state. The project turned out much more cohesive and professional-sounding than I could have hoped, and I’m so grateful for all the hard work he put into it!

Working with Steven on my newest EP was a fantastic decision. It’s one thing to work with a producer who knows how to properly put together a good sounding record, but this guy also quickly grasped what I was going for and helped me get the best out of my performances (guitar/bass/keys/vocals) to help me sound the way I wanted. Great set up, very professional, affordable rates, and easy to work with artistically, both from the vocal booth and in production. Most importantly, he always took my notes when there was something specific I wanted in production, but he also never lacked an explanation for any part of his process.
I would absolutely recommend 4D Audio to anyone looking to get their music recorded and produced.

Steven is one of the most professional people in the music industry I have ever worked with. Don’t let his rates fool you. He is a top notch engineer and producer that will get you even better results than the other studios who charge far more.

From the very get go I knew that I was in good hands with my project. Steven can work with any budget and make sure that you are happy with your songs. He will get the best performances out of you so that you can showcase your true talent to the world.

I could not have done my EP without his help. I am so glad that I met him and worked with him on this. I can tell you right now he will be my first phone call the next time I ever want to record something in the future.

This is NO B.S. Steven is the real deal and he will deliver for you. His studio and equipment are great and he has everything you could possibly need. Don’t hesitate to go with him. You know you are getting a brilliant producer who will understand where you are coming from and get you to where you want to be.
