Since I crossed paths with Kyle Porter at the High Sierra Music Festival 15+ years ago.  I became  aware of his reputation and talents as an audio engineer.  I hoped the time would come that he'd be available for my live broadcast of music festivals and single events at venues scattered around Northern California.  Now for the last eight years, with his help, KVMR has set a new standard for our audio quality which includes his masterful mix of the audience and stage making the live broadcast sound as if you were sitting in the best seat in the house.

My name is Kyle Porter, owner of Paradise Audio Services. I am a 1995 graduate of the recording arts program at CSU Chico. I have been mixing and recording music since 1988. I currently am head engineer for North Valley Productions shows in Chico, CA. I provide equipment and engineering for all KZFR concert events. I also have worked as monitor engineer at Laxson Auditorium for Chico Performances and Sweet Spot Sound. I am the archivist for all of Sierra Nevada Brewery's Big Room performances, and have worked on all of their "Sierra Center Stage" PBS video broadcast series. I work as a live FM radio simulcast engineer for KZFR, KVMR, Sierra Nevada Big Room, Grizzly Radio, Hog Ranch Radio and various festival radio broadcasts. Some of the festivals include: High Sierra Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, California World Fest, American River Music Festival and more. 

I presently provide equipment and engineer stages for the following Northern California and Oregon festivals: California World Fest, High Sierra Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, Wildflower Music Festival, Gold Nugget Days in Paradise, California Nut Festival in Durham and many other outdoor events. I provide sound and engineering for Plumas Arts Council events in Quincy CA. and have been engineering at the Paradise Performing Arts Center since 1996.
I own an EAW LA series sound system that can sufficiently cover an audience of up to 1500 people. With two digital 32 channel Front of House and Monitor consoles I can provide up to 12 monitor mixes on stage as well as Front of House mix. I have a variety of microphones and DI boxes (Neumann, Shure, Sennheiser, EV, Audio Technica, Nakamichi, Countryman). Paradise Audio Services has plenty of gear and resources to handle most all riders and performances.
