Innermuze is established with a foundation
of over 20 years of experience in electronic repair.
with a few broken items such as a SCI Prophet 600 and Arp
and a background with electronic classes, a future began with a dream
to bring life back to equipment that would otherwise be unaffordable.
time, enough gear was restored that attributed to a commercial studio.
This brought both the chance to learn and use all the equipment used in
music creation, as well as being able to repair and restore gear for
others so that they too could put it to good use.
opportunity arose in California not long after. What was first going to
be a job as an engineer, quickly became the chance to be the tech in a
large recording studio all because of a Trident Series 80B breaking
down during use. Repairing the mixing console on the spot established
the position, and made RadioStar Studios (run by Sylvia Massy)
the new home to J Beste.
The vast amount of analog
gear that was used in all of the studio buildings catapulted the
knowledge and experience beyond anything imaginable. From mixing
consoles to amplifiers, and processors to synthesizers, the world had
opened its giant doors to something truly remarkable.
the time at RadioStar, other opportunities also arose. One such event
was the chance to travel to Green Day's Jingletown Studios to
recap their Trident 80 board. Another was when Melissa, owner of
Studios in Jamaica, Iowa (home to Slipknot) had flown J out to inspect
the SSL 4000 that was being used there. Thanks to the experience gained
from Sylvia's SSL 9000, their board was worked upon so that life was
brought back to it for future recordings.
Almost four years
had passed while at RadioStar when out of nowhere, another
adventure presented itself, a chance to work for
Zimmer's Remote Control Productions. This was an extraordinary
opportunity, and it was accepted immediately. The experience
gained there was also life changing. Meeting so many wonderful and
extremely talented people was just the tip of the iceberg, being
allowed to sit beside Hans himself while he worked was truly a dream
come true. Unfortunately, as with all dreams, things had to come to an
end. This was a personal choice though, and nothing against anything or
anyone at all, but that desire to continue repairing and
restoring equipment on a personal level was missing.
appreciation from each individual that was given from saving the life
of their most precious gear was missing. Not to be misunderstood
though, those involved at Remote Control were thankful for J. However,
to be in a position where many could be helped felt like more of the
right thing to do than to focus just on one company. With this being as
it is, J decided to move on one more time and establish a foundation to
where he could positively affect more lives.
Returning to the
Detroit, MI area, J sought out those who might be in need of help. With
the assistance of satisfied customers, word of mouth had spread faster
than expected. J now remains in the Detroit area and business
continues to grow daily.
If you (or anyone that you know of)
is in need of repairs/restoration/modifcations/etc of items such as
amplifiers (solid state and tube), synthesizers and keyboards, drum
machines, processors, mixing consoles, effects units, and anything else
pertaining to the electronic side of music, and would like to have an
experienced professional on their side, then feel free to contact me, J
Thanks for your time.
