I was super impressed with Hamish and the studio. The service was brilliant and the end result fantastic. I will definitely use the studio again and can highly recommend it.

I’ve worked with engineers who were clearly just going through the motions for my hard earned cash. Not Hamish - he works with you, not for you, pushing you that little bit more to get the best out of you; there is a huge difference and the result is the lush sounds he helped us create. It’s a pleasure, not a chore when working with him.
— Steven Healy, Firewall
Hamish knows his craft and gets what you’re trying to do. I’ve started working recently with him on TV and film soundtracks of mine for Romalpa Records. He’s the real deal: excellent ear, clear breadth of experience over a range of genres, and top notch technical engineering and production knowledge.
— Robert Sandeman
We took our first album “Life & Lessons To Be Learned” to be mixed by Sound Sound and from that moment on we had no hesitation where to go with our future recordings! We found not only a mixer/ producer of our work but a friend and collaborator who really bought into what we were trying to do. With a wealth of knowledge and experience at very reasonable rates the whole process was almost as much fun as recording it. We will hopefully be able to use the studio in future to make some recordings and continue our association with Sound Sound.

Sound Sound are fantastic to work with. They have provided professional sound recording and sound conversion services for us on a diverse range of projects for corporate clients. Specifically the sound engineering they provided on the Turnberry website and kiosk were exceptional.

I commissioned Hamish to create an album length composition as a gift for my girlfriend. The resulting piece was perfect - atmospheric, danceable, and exactly what we wanted, even though the instructions I gave him were pretty vague - sexy and banging with a big introduction. He was able to take the brief and run with it, and made ‘our song’ personal and evocative.

Hey Hamish those sound brilliant :)
Thanks again with all the effort you put in we are very happy with the outcome.
hope to work with you again.

(and from their blog)

We’re really blown away at how much effort Hamish put in to getting us to sound as genuine as possible. Without him pushing us and giving input we don’t think the vocals would have sound anywhere near as good.
— The Party Program
Have worked with Hamish on several projects, including solo acoustic bass recording and band song recordings, which is a testament to how pleased I’ve been with the results! Final products have always been spot on!
— Jim Strange
Hamish @ SoundSound is an absolute recording Oracle. Hamish not only recorded my music using new and innovative recording techniques, he made it way greater than I ever imagined it could be with his in depth knowledge of mixing and mastering techniques with a meticulous ear for perfection. He is a joy to work with and enjoys his work. He has a strong, strong desire to do his best to service your music in making it as good as it can be which I guarantee will be way better than you will ever have imagined. Hamish clearly takes pride in what he does and it shows in the end product.

Managed to put up with us for 2 weeks, stay sane and help us make an album. Nice setting, easy access from town. Easy to work with, knowledgeable at his craft.
— William, Disposable
I felt very comfortable working with Hamish. He totally understood my sound and what i wanted to create. He was able to take suggestions and create his own ideas to enhance the music even further. Nothing was a bother and I was very pleased with the outcome.

Hamish created a soundtrack for our Edinburgh Fringe Festival show, “Some Explicit Polaroids” by contemporary British writer, Mark Ravenhill. The play was a compact hour and a half long and moved swiftly from scene to scene without pause. Alternately, we found ourselves in a living room, a street, a nightclub and finally, a morgue. Hamish’s soundtrack helped to create a strong sense of atmosphere across the various scenes, balancing the need for atmosphere with a soundbed that enhanced rather than drowning out the action. His remixes of superbly chosen pop classics punctuated the scenes and for me, provided the icing on the cake of a cracking Fringe show.

‘I’ve worked with Hamish on two projects and his commitment to creating high quality material is awesome. He has a great work ethic, I’d recommend him to anyone and I will certainly work with him again in future. He’s also very affordable.’
— Nash the rapper

"It was an absolute pleasure recording with Hamish at Sound Sound. He was incredibly helpful and even managed to sort out a live Skype session with the director of the audiobook I was working on - all the way from Los Angeles! The atmosphere in the studio is very relaxed but also very professional - making it the ideal environment for any and all recording needs. I would HIGHLY recommend Sound Sound to absolutely everyone! Thanks again.

Friendly staff, flexible with time and procedures, and personal attention when it comes to “weird” stuff in rock bands, like synthy sounds, samples, fx and the like.
Hamish took good care of us, especially in recording the drums and bass for my band, The Tide Inside, even though it took ages. Never a frown.

Totally advised!

A great wee studio with a dedicated, professional, flexible and competent sound engineer.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the engineer Hamish Campbell for his brilliant and faithful public recordings of my works i.e. my 13th Symphony for Full Orchestra. I look forward to further professional recordings by Mr Campbell in the near future
— Michael Garrett, composer
Thank you for the CDs which arrived as promised today. We are really pleased with the result, crystal clear recording with a hassle-free and prompt service.

Sound Sound provided a professional, friendly atmosphere to our first recordings. It was clear to us that Hamish wasn’t focusing on the pay cheque at the end of the recording, he really wanted to make the songs the best they can be just as much as we did. Whether that be staying in the studio after hours or bringing ideas to the table for the benefit of the tracks. Sound Sound delivered. Not just in the studio too, we used Sound Sound for some live recordings and at a more than reasonable price we got bang for our buck. A live recording so professional it was used on our 1st EP.

Hamish has mixed music for individual routines for my dance exams, competitions and dance displays. His work is first class and he recently edited my whole dance production which was fabulous. I would recommend his work to anyone

Hamish just took control of the sound and you knew it would be perfect. He was responsive to the musicians and flexible in circumstances which were not always perfect. He is thoroughly reliable, pleasant and professional.
— Mae Shaw, Event Organiser/Performer of Folk concerts and Portobello Book Festival Variety night
My favourite place to record! Great quality, great knowledge and always get the finished article I wanted! Top equipment and relaxed atmosphere... Always found Hamish a pleasure to work with. Brings out the best in us and always has great ideas that in some cases have made the track what it is! Always happy with all masters and will continue to use the wee legend as long as I’m making music.

The mixes that Hamish puts together for our team is exactly what we ask for and more. The sound effects are great and links from 1 section to the other are smooth. We all love his mixes.

"Now here's a producer that treats music as Picasso did paintings. Morphamish's works seem similarly varied in terms of both style and subject matter, and he's just as prolific. When it all goes cubist, his glitched up blends of fragmented bass music act like the Three Musicians packed in gear for a sampler, synth and sequencer. Needless to say, he's a nutter, but the good kind that always smile as they rock back and forth to a sinewave LFO." - Massie (Boiler Room, Electrikal Sound System)
