Recording studio Miami: What are the rates for mixing?

  What are the rates for mixing?   You know, we can do an hourly rate, and it takes what it takes. If revisions need to be made, you pay for that time, because it is studio time and it is the engineer’s time. We may be able to work out a flat rate, depending upon the engineer and how many songs it’ll be. It really depends.

Recording studio Miami: Where is Miami’s Fish Tank recording studio located?

  Where is the studio located?   We are located basically in Central Miami right off of Bird Road and 74th Avenue which is very close to Palmetto. It’s really dead center. We have everything close by, hotels. The airport is a 10 minute drive or less. Hotels all over the place, restaurants, all types of shops. It’s a great location.

Recording studio Miami: What are some of the services that we offer?

  What are some of the services that you offer?   We have a bunch of really talented staff that can record, mix music incredibly well. We have people who can compose and help you write. We have staff that are also really great teachers, so if you’d like to learn how to record, and how to mix, one on one with somebody, we’re able to do that. We also do voiceover work and some jingle work as well. We have grads from Berkeley, who are just like phenomenal programmers and songwriters, that have done commercial stuff all over the place. Let’s see, we’ve done some Foley work, sound creation, over-dubbing. I guess I said over-dubbing?   Voiceover.   Yeah, voiceover, over-dubbing. Generally, I like recording music, and I think most of the engineers here are into music with instruments. I would say that’s our specialty.

Recording studio Miami: Why Josh started working in the music industry

    Tell me about why you started working in the music industry.   Oh, wow. That’s a great question. Sometimes I think I’m paying the price for making that decision, but I think it was a good one. I was studying economics at Colgate University. In my senior year, I dropped out and decided that I wanted to get into engineering and recording albums. I was doing it with a laptop out of my dorm room, and I had taken a couple course in recording, and I was a keyboard player in a band that would tour the frat circuit all over the north east. I had always been fascinated by the recorded art form, the recording arts; that medium just seemed incredible to me because it was like you could really capture … It was like lightening in a bottle. You were really able to put together something that just kept on giving. I was always amazed by the fact that I could play a song over, and over, and over and still get that feeling. I love what does. I think it really connects people. I think, more than anything else, that’s why I’ve stayed in the business. It’s just I like being connected to people in that way.   I’m a musician also. Let’s see. I got out of school. I graduated, pretty close to the top of my class at full sale, and won a couple competitions there. They had these mix competitions where they’d […]
