Welcome to studilaroche, the studio home of Benjamin Price: fellow human, engineer, producer, musician, papa.
I’ve been working professionally with audio since 1998: recording engineering, mixing, mastering and producing music, voiceover, audio for film and video, sound design, location recording, sound reinforcement, musical performance, consulting.
Some background: I interned at Tree Sound under Paul Diaz and Jim Zumpano, worked for pro-audio rental company Eclipse Audio with John Rogers and Jimmy Z, was mentored by Ricky Keller at Southern Living At Its Finest recording studio for 5 years, rising from intern to house engineer and studio manager, and co-founded Red Tuxedo with Alex Lowe. Since 2006 I’ve operated studilaroche productions, inc., where I’ve focused on music production, recording and mixing. Over the past 5 years or so I’ve been diving deeper into mastering. I’ve also done some time in sales at Sweetwater and taught mixing, plug-ins and production courses at AIM.
Guitar is my primary instrument, but I also play bass, french horn, drums, vocals, percussion. I’ve played in some bands: John Wayne with the Power and the Glory, Disguise the Sky, HIGH BIAS, DeadPan Alley, Population (once), PENN BRYCE, Water Liars, Chris Childs Orchestra, Rock Lotto/Happenstance x3, et al.
