LIVE CONCERT RECORDING
Using our 24 track Alesis Adat HD24 we can provide top quality concert recordings that will have the clarity and professional sound that you are looking for to capture the magic of your concert.
Mixing is the process of taking all of the individual elements of a song and combining them together to form a cohesive and balanced recording. Using the techniques of tone-shaping, dynamic control, as well as time and pitch correction, this process turns the initial tracking into a song that projects the emotion of your work to the listener. We can also provide drum replacement and various software plug ins to shape the music in a variety of ways.
Once your mix is complete and you are totally satisfied with the results, it is time for Mastering. Mastering is the process of preparing the final mix to be competitive and compatible with current consumer formats and sound quality. This can involve slight frequency adjustments and overall loudness. The importance of mastering is most apparent when putting together a collection of songs and achieving a cohesive sound among them.
Our studio rooms work perfectly for voice overs whether it be spoken word, commercials, taglines or narration. With top of the line microphones and preamps your voice over project will be recorded with maximum vocal clarity and no background noise.
