Our recording rig is specifically designed for working on location. Projects can be set up as dedicated recording sessions, capture of live performance(s) in front of an audience - or a mix of both.
We will travel and set up all required equipment at a location of your choice. We are happy to offer advice and work with you to choose a venue appropriate to your project.
Having trained with some of the best classical music engineers in the business, we have experience of how to achieve a great sound for a variety of ensembles and make the best use of the available acoustics.
This service all covers post-session work, including noise removal / audio repair, editing of multi-tracks, mix balancing and mastering.
In most cases, problematic levels of background rumble, clicks, coughs, emergency services sirens or enthusiastic audiences can be reduced significantly or even removed completely.
During mixing and mastering, we use a mix of classic analog hardware and state-of-the-art software, careful technical skills and lots of patience to achieve the best possible results.
VOICE-OVER, STUDIO RECORDING,
At our London-based studio, we can record professional quality vocal and voice-over tracks, which can be tailored to suit any project requirements.
Our studio space is also well-equipped for overdubbing and recording instruments such as acoustic/electric guitars, bass and keyboards.
A vintage Neumann U87 is our usual vocal mic, with Shure SM7B, Gefell M930 and AKG C414 also available.
LIVE SOUND - FRONT OF HOUSE MIX, MONITORS
With experience on Soundcraft, Allen + Heath and Yamaha digital consoles, we can provide Live Sound engineering services for clubs and indoor venues.
We can also offer multi-track recording of amplified concerts, by taking analog inserts directly from the mixing desk and recording these via top-end analog to digital converters (or just taking the digital output from the desk, if available / preferred).
These can be augmented by our additional room microphones to capture the venue / audience sounds.
