Here at the Fish Tank studios we take our recording equipment choices and acoustics very seriously. Actually, the physical properties of our studio were well thought out and designed by award winning designer Jeff Hedback (formerly of Auralex), who specified that we use recycled bluejeans within our walls! We have been painstaking about our attention to accuracy in our listening environment, and choice of studio equipment. Avid HD Native, Universal Audio Octo Ultimate plugin suite, every plugin known to man, fantastic microphones and vintage outboard gear are not what make the Fish Tank Recording studios great. It is it’s engineers that make it great! Chief engineer Josh Lewis has worked with a who’s who list of current recording artists like Lil Wayne, Madonna, Shakira, Ricky Martin, and many others. Our engineers have been through countless arduous major label recording sessions, and have paid there dues with years of apprenticeship, and a boat load of very expensive education (Full Sail)! Their ears and abilities, their mastery of their craft are 90% of the value you get at the Fish Tank. Without them our $100k in equipment would be useless!

What would you say makes Little Fish Audio special? I think Little Fish Audio is special because we are a small company that is trying to do big things. We deal with a lot of high-end recording equipment that a lot of people locally don't even know about and could really benefit from. This is a place where you can come try these things out so you don't have to take the expense or the risk of ordering it and then maybe trying to return it. You can just come here and take your time and also talk to people who have used the gear before and see if it's really the best bang for you book. A lot of times someone will come in with an idea of what they think they need and we end up recommending something that is much more cost effective and may give them a lot more.
We were more than happy to have Novation use our facilities for the filming of their promotional video. The Launch XL looks like a great product with a lot of potential for both Live and Studio use.

Ever since the proliferation of digital technology within the world of recording, many artists have chosen to get lazy and, often rely on pitch-tuning plugins, or think that there is a plugin for every mistake they're prone to make while recording. They're wrong. As an audio engineer, I can confidently say that, despite the wide array of tools at our disposal, it is ALWAYS a better idea to record something correctly from the get-go. Naturally, not all circumstances allow for fine-tuning during tracking, however, a project will ALWAYS become much more time-consuming and tedious, when corrections need to be made that could've been avoided during tracking. More time equals more money. Plus, any time spent correcting mistakes, and cleaning up sloppiness, is time taken away from honing in on the sound of the final product. Over time, having tracked big name acts, with vocal coaches and vocal producers, I can attest to this fact: Every word, every note, must be completely perfect in terms of pitch, inflection, energy, and desired effect. Many times we will track a single line over and over again with multiple takes, until the line is just right. This is not to say that many artists will not repeat a verse 40 or 50 times (especially with rap) until it is flawless. The artists should be comfortable enough to play the part in their sleep, backwards, forwards, with the ability to be playful because it is so well ingrained. This takes time and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. […]
