Tracking/Overdubbing

We’re set up to record full bands with as much, or as little isolation as you desire. The studio is full of amazing instruments, gadgets, pedals, drums, noisemakers and oddball gizmos that are available to become a part of your music.

Our studio is extremely well-maintained. Vintage equipment takes an awful lot of care to keep it sounding great and we keep a close ear on all of our instruments to maintain their integrity. So when you go to grab something out of our collection, it will function like it should.


Mixing

We have 32 Channels of discrete analog summing, hi-resolution digital converters, a variety of rare and highly sought-after compressor/limiters & effects, and an accurate high-quality mixing environment.

We offer the capability of mixing down to an analog 1/2″ Studer tape machine and delivering the reels to a reputable mastering engineer. Reels of tape can be found here and a 10-song album typically runs between 3-4 reels at 30ips.


Mastering

We offer an in-house mastering service at a rate of $50/song, which includes one round of free revisions. You can receive up to 3 reference CD’s, and a Red Book Standard text encoded CD. Along with the recorded material, we ask that you provide at least one or more reference mixes that you would like your master to be comparable to. This gives us a general idea of the loudness you like and the sonic pallet you’re looking to accomplish. 


Film & Television

We’re set up to allow composers, musicians, actors and directors to track to picture while recording the score or doing voiceovers. We have a large 32″ hi-def monitor in the control room for composers and directors, as well as a more compact hi-def LCD display for musicians and voice-over talent to track to.

For picture setup, we need the movie files in a DV-stream. Quicktime Pro 7 is capable of converting .mov files to .dv format and if needed we can do the converting for you. But please be advised this process may take some time if converting an entire reel (or several).


Remote Sessions

We have a national and international client base who use any combination of our services. We can accommodate long distance sessions in many ways, be it as simple as IM, email, or an FTP service like Dropbox or WeTransfer.
