Tracking.

  • With our three individual tracking rooms (not including the control room), we have multiple rooms to work with. We have world class equipment and software that will allow you to to get great sounding tracks quickly and efficiently.

Audio Editing

  • With our large selection of software applications and plug-ins, we can do anything that is possible with current technology.
  • We always recommend getting the best performance possible at the start. After that, we can help tighten up pitch and timing issues with a variety of the latest tools. We use Melodyne and AutoTune for the best sounding and quickest pitch correction possible.
  • We can deliver and convert audio to mp3′s, aiff, wav and various other formats.
  • We specialize in audio editing for books on CD. We have been involved in multiple Books on CD projects including many of Steven Covey’s “7 Habits” series audio books.

Mixing.

  • Because we own TDM versions (plug-ins that allow processing as we record) of all of our plug-ins, we can do a lot of mixing as we are tracking your project.  However, we will still need additional time when you are finished recording and editing.  The rest of the mixing is usually done on our own time but clients are definitely welcome to be present.  This is the time that we spend polishing, balancing, and creatively turning your multiple recorded tracks into a great sounding song. It consists of adding dynamic processing, effects, panning, EQ, detailed automation and several mixing tricks.
  • We have mixed thousands of songs and can mix very quickly and efficiently since we can start from numerous templates that we have created. We have a large variety of great sounding plug-ins and our DM-3200 (Digital Mixerboard) can help us mix quickly.
  • Mixing can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 or more hours depending on the complexity of the project. Songs that are a single instrument and a vocal will take the least amount of time, where projects with acoustic drum kits take at least 2 hours a song. If you are recording your full band with live drums, a minimum of 1.5 hours are required per song for mixing. We will not rush the mixing process to deliver poor quality.
  • We do mix other projects done outside of our studio. We prefer Pro Tools files, Logic or Garage Band files, OMF files or you can also export the individual tracks saved as broadcast wav files (please call us to get instruction on how to prepare these properly).

Mastering

  • Mastering is the process of adding the final touches to your final mix as a whole to make it sound its best on a variety of sound systems. It also involves proper CD programming to create a CD Master that can be sent out for replication or duplication.
  • We master with Pro Tools and Wave Burner using high quality, mastering plug-ins.

Audio Restoration.

  • We can clean up audio by removing clicks, pops, unwanted constant noise such as buzzing, hums and other unwanted noise. We have the most modern software to do this. Contact us if you would like a free sample of a piece of your audio restored.
