We take pride in creating top quality, great mixes for all of our clients. Wether it be a live event or recorded material, regaurdless of where the recording originates, we go through all tracks separately and clean or fix, if possible, any problem areas (noises and un-desired sounds, bad pitch or chord(s), etc.). Once we have performed the "inspect and clean" processes, we then go through each mix extensively, always staying focused on the overall soundscape, feel, and "precense" of each mix, always focused on keeping the clients goals and wishes met.
Our control room is set up to be acoustically accurate, as well as ergonomically functional. With cost effective, but highly useful control surfaces to aid in mixing, effects adjustments, and mix automation. These tools aid in making the mixing process fast, and accurate.
That being said... It is worth pointing out that whenever you are planning to record in a studio, if you expect quality results, always plan your time accordingly. For a great example of what we are talking about here, check out this article about Budgeting - Quality over Quantity .
When we where setting up our control room, we kept mastering in mind at all times throughout the design and construction process.
Our recording facility utilizes a high grade, studio master clock for perfectly synced audio and equipment. This has a tremendous
effect on the quality of what is being recorded, mixed, and mastered. It is a crucial studio tool that helps us make better choices
when working on recorded material.
This allows us to make better sonic decisions in recording, the mixing phase, as well as the quality of the final master.
We offer our mastering service to anyone in need of this service. Contact us for more info if interested.
We also offer video recording and / or editing, and animation. High Definition, multi camera shooting and editing, animation, music videos, demo videos, product videos... We think you get the idea. Our video shooting, editing, and animation capabilities are quite extensive, not to mention we run our own linux servers, to help in speeding up the final output (where applicable).
Do you have an event that you need sound for? Or maybe you have a system, but just need a sound engineer? Whatever your situation may be, we have you covered! Our sound system is a GREAT combination of new age technology, mixed with some good, old school power!
