We recognise that people respond differently to the recording process: Some musicians buckle under the pressure, while others sail on through with no concern. Recording is an art form we take very seriously. We know when to keep the session lighthearted, when to push a little, and when to bring you back to that ‘safe’ zone. A recording is as much technical as it is about capturing the right emotion, to deliver the best version of you possible.

SESSION PLAYER

The production sounds great, but you still wonder if it needs live players. Wonder no more.

Virtual instruments have improved considerably in recent years – particularly drums, though nothing is more real than a living & breathing player. Real musicians are sympathetic to the arrangement and interactive with the song. The professional influence of a live player elevates the sound of a record to a whole new level. We carefully select players from our existing network to recommend only those whom we believe are best suited to your style.

Session Players include:

  • Drummers
  • Guitarists
  • Bassists
  • Backing Vocalists
  • Keys Players

VOCAL TUNING

The vocal is electrifying and moving, though lacking some polish in execution. Transparent pitch correction can help it shine.

Great vocal tuning is like great make-up: You never notice it. It’s often surprising to learn of singers using voice tuning to enhance their vocals. The fact that you otherwise never suspected it says a lot about the work of their production crew. We understand how to achieve this level of transparency with our vocal tuning, through our specialist techniques. When we’ve worked our magic, you will believe the vocal went down that way in the studio. Need a more obvious “hard” tuned vocal? We offer that too.

We provide:

    • Detailed Manual Tuning By Ear
    • Authentic & Transparent Through To Hard-Tuned Results
    • Vocal Editing And Clean Up
    • Timing Tweaks (if needed)

EDITING

There’s a fine line between a mathematically note perfect performance and sloppy mess. Allow us to walk the line.a

Attentive and careful editing is a vital part of preparing music for mixing. It removes distractions from the song, enabling the right quirks of a performance to stay. We believe in preserving the authenticity of a performance, using manual editing techniques and a fine-tuned set of ears. We rarely lock anything to a perfect time grid, as we value how instruments work together musically.

  • Realise Your Performance Potential Through Careful Editing
  • Receive Support & Encouragement To Take Risks
  • Lay The Foundations For A Great Sounding Mix
