Some stuff I've done

Overview

    Tim is known for his unique conceptual vision and masterful expertise when it comes to producing award winning audio for radio and television advertising as well as for films and corporate programs. He created REP Productions in the late 1980's in NYC as a freelance Recording Engineer for Jingle writers. Working with Mambo Music, Feldstein Music, Easy Writer, and Debbie McDuffy. He co–produced for clients such as L'Oreal, Coke, Coors Light, Hertz, and General Motors. 

    In 1991 Tim designed, built and opened REP Studio in Ithaca, which was an outgrowth of his many talents, and has become a creative environment that continues to support local artists such as the Sim Redmond Band, the Ithaca Community Chorus, the Burns Sisters, Wingnut, and Samite. 

    Composer, bassist, recording engineer and producer Tim Reppert studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and has worked as a recording engineer and studio session musician in New York City, Boston, and Ithaca.
