“If you have any audio related issues, Rob can help. I purchased some extra gear for my studio but was unsure of the best way to integrate it all into my existing setup. Rob brought his wealth of knowledge (& thankfully a car full of extra leads) and had my new mixer & pre-amp set up in no time. He explained how it all works in simple terms. We identified a problem with my old audio interface, and I now have everything working perfectly. Thanks Rob.”

“Rob Bee is a brilliant sound engineer! He is fantastic to work with and really knows his stuff. I’ve been on his workshops and I learnt a huge amount from him. If you are looking for a sound engineer, help running a home recording studio or someone to run workshops I would highly recommend him.”
“Rob recently assisted me in refurbishing my voice-over studio. He made several long-distance visits to assess my requirements before spending many hours researching and sourcing a range of equipment options. His rates are very reasonable and I can’t recommend Rob’s service highly enough.”

“Rob offers great peace of mind to the techno shy Vo like myself. I now have a foible free studio with the right kit in it for me. This was achieved calmly and confidently by someone who understands VO. If you’ve any niggling doubts or it’s time to upgrade and you’re not sure what you need, invest in a bit of Bee time!”
“The best thing about Rob is that I can 100% categorically rely on him! Quick and efficient service, bang on spec and work is always returned with a smile :D”

“As a busy Voiceover, to have the exceptional production skills of Rob Bee available to me, adds great value to my business.
Being able to offer a ‘complete service’ to all my clients is so important, whilst remaining competitive and reliable at all times.
We are currently working on an on-going audio project for Hampshire Police Force and ‘recently delivered a large e-learning job to a client, that without Rob I would not have been able to guarantee on time.”

“Many thanks, Rob, for coming to our rescue when we needed you urgently. Entirely because of you, we were able to recover unscathed from a technical disaster, and get back to work sooner than we ever thought possible.
A huge thank you from the team at Sayer Hamilton for your skill, knowledge, patience and efficiency – and for just being a great bloke!”

“Rob´s input to our long running music sessions has helped us transform our live event programme from being potentially ordinary to achieving recognition as a leading tour itinerary fixture. Over the last six years that Rob has been involved at Garstang Unplugged, there has scarcely been a guest artist that has not complimented him on the quality of his live sound output, his reassuring confidence, and his ability to calm the nerves! Many of our upcoming and emerging talent have also entrusted Rob to produce their first recorded demos and albums. Hugely experienced, Highly recommended!”
Pete Hardman – Garstang Unplugged
“After having the same home studio set up for many years, I knew it was time for some adjustments to keep things running perfectly.
Rob knew exactly what I meant when I explained my situation, provided me with several brilliant options and help me select the best one for my circumstances.
The end result has meant that I am working from a studio that sounds the best it ever has, thanks to Rob’s guidance. He has an unbelievable amount of knowledge on all things audio (but doesn’t bamboozle with techie terms!) and will remain my first port of call as I need advice, equipment upgrades or input on keeping my studio sounding great over the years to come.”

“Rob was a great assets to the production of VOX in 2013. He helped with the production of collating all the voice demos and making them all sound the best they could be and of equal measure. A helpful, trustworthy and honest guy, who we would work with again! I also had him help me out with one of my demos and he went beyond the call of duty! :-)”

“Hi my name is Ollie I am a musician and songwriter. I have recently started to use a PC to record my music and found I was lacking finesse in the recording department. I had the good fortune to meet Rob and arranged an audio engineering tutorial session at my home. Rob showed me how to get a better sound and to organise my work in a logical manner. I am happy with the friendly way that Rob conducted the session and I feel I got good value for money.”
“I have known Rob in a professional capacity for several years. He is a first-class Sound Engineer… cool, calm and organised. Rob has worked for me recently in his other capacity as a Studio Consultant. He successfully sourced an ISDN Codec for me at a very competitive price and had it installed in my studio the same day. I would recommend to Rob to anyone who needs a professional Sound-man.”
Tony Hawkins – tonyhawkins.co.uk
“Had great fun the first time I used Bee Productive. Speaking via Skype, Rob very patiently managed to talk a technophobe like me through taking an ISDN card out of my old computer and placing it in my new one. It took a while, but it worked! And at a reasonable price too. Which is why I had no hesitation in hiring Rob to do the final production on some stories I recently narrated. They sound lovely. Highly recommended.”

“Rob has been very helpful in providing me with tuition on Adobe Audition when I re-vamped my voice over studio last year. He offered practical technical support, but also some additional tips on providing the best audio possible for my clients, invaluable to any professional voiceover artist who is keen to set high standards on their audio output. If you need some technical help with your studio set up, or some audio software tuition at reasonable rates, get in touch with Rob!”
Lindsay Abbott – lindsayabbottvoiceover.com
“Despite working 99% of the time on my own from my own studio, I need to know I can develop my skills so that I can always meet the needs of my clients. I turned to Rob for training earlier this year, and will be back in the future. He was flexible in fitting around my schedule, cost-effective, and most importantly – effective. It’s a great resource to have easy access to!”
Emma Hignett – www.emmahignett.com
“I have called upon Rob at Bee Productive a few times now to help me put together voiceover demos for particular jobs and clients. He goes above and beyond and his results are always better than I hoped they would turn out. He is a very skilled producer and editor, and that is why I would return to him for advice and service.”
Katy Maw – katymaw.com
“I’ve worked with Rob for many years and he’s always been not only highly professional and an expert in sound production but jolly nice to work with! So I never had any doubts when I asked him to help me with some studio alterations. Initially he talked through what I needed and gave me some options to consider – he came out quickly to install and I knew I could contact him with any problems I had. I’ll be using Rob’s services in the future!”

“You expect a good sound engineer/designer to twiddle the knobs right. But the thing that sets apart a great engineer is harder to put your finger on. It’s that invisible hand, the light touch, that gives the most frantic of sessions a kind of serenity, a clarity – a slight suggestion here, a reassuring confirmation there. The little things that make a massive difference, make a great ad, make your client happy and make you look good. Rob does that. It’s quite a skill. And when I booked him for an away leg to come rig my own setup, he did it with all with the same cool, calm effortless efficiency; sorted out a right old mess, solved a few rather tricky problems – over and above the call of duty, and got my shed sounding great. And didn’t make me feel stupid. Top sound man.”
Ant Bryan – Gasworks creative
“I have no hesitation in recommending Rob for his expertise, patience, professionalism and industry knowledge. he helped me set up my ISDN studio and is an invaluable source of technical skill for voice over artists. Honestly, I wouldn’t use anyone else!”
Rachel Darcy – racheldarcy.co.uk
“A very big thank you to Rob Bee of Bee Productive. I have learned more about Pro Tools recording software/hardware in one day than I have done in the last 5 years… thank you. I would recommend Rob to any voiceovers who would like to enhance their recording technical abilities.”
Robb Dee – robbdee.co.uk
“Investment tip: Just spent 4 hours in the company of Rob Bee. Very productive evening of learning. If you fancy a bit of education as to why things work, how things work, which will ultimately lead to getting more work then give him a call. Got an issue with your software? Want to get the most of your kit? He is a minefield of knowledge.
Now, I know a fair bit about my kit and how it works, but there were some bits I felt I needed to know more about and Rob sorted me out. Bee Productive… and book a visit.”
