Many musicians have a favourite venue. It may be that the acoustics are great for your musical style - cosy and intimate or perhaps filled with presence and atmosphere. It may just be that you are comfortable there and confident of performing at your best. Whatever the reason, we are happy to meet you there.
We can capture your music with all the ambience of your favourite performance space. Studio recordings can attempt to impose a feeling of space and location to your performance by the use of artificial reverberation and delay, but none equals the real sound of a great church, auditorium or intimate club.
We have the sensitive microphones, specialist pre-amplifiers and digital recorders to capture your performance at better than CD quality.
The purest form of recording involves careful placement of a stereo microphone configuration, skillful adjustment of recording levels and an excellent performance. The resulting stereo recording can then be published without further intervention.
Sometimes, multiple microphones are used, with different instruments or voices on each. These can be mixed live to produce a stereo file, or recorded on a multi-track recorder for later mixing in a more controlled environment.
The digital clarity of CD recordings has raised standards and expectations. Our studio is fully equipped to keep your pristine recording in digital form at better than CD quality throughout the mixing and editing processes.
Our digital mixing console has full automation of all functions enabling complex mixing tasks to be performed with ease and repeatable precision.
Making a recording is only part of the story. To do something with that recording may take a number of further steps.
A continuous recording of a live performance will need to be trimmed to define the start and finish points. You may even need to edit out excessively long applause!
Your production may need to be assembled from tracks recorded at multiple sessions. The tracks may not have been recorded in the sequence required. Adjustment of the relative volume of successive tracks may be required, and sometimes tuning of the tonal balance is necessary to give the overall compilation of tracks a cohesiveness - the feeling that they were meant to flow from one to another.
Our state-of-the-art computer based editing system allows us to edit your recording to an accuracy of less than one thousandth of a second. So simply removing unwanted sections, or totally re-arranging the content can be achieved in a truly seamless manner.
Once the recorded material is all ready, we can prepare a
CD master. This step defines the final structure of your CD, including the labeling of tracks, and the lengths of the gaps (or for a live recording, the absence of gaps) between each track. Our CD compilation software gives us total control over all the CD parameters, producing master disks ready for full scale CD production.
