The Importance of Being Prepared

Although working in the studio can be a lot of fun, it is also a lot of hard work. Specially when you’re literally paying for each minute that passes by. One of the biggest mistakes artists make before coming into the studio, is to not have a CRYSTAL-CLEAR vision of waht they want their product to sound like. I have seen this happen time-and-time again, regardless of the genre of music, etc. If you, as an artist/producer/musician, don’t have a good idea of what you want your end result to sound like, chances are the engineer won’t either. Do your homework by warming up at home, going over each part of your recording, have lyrics, chords changes, rhythm notes all written down so as to not waste time, which as we all know, time =MONEY. Our recording engineers and first class facilities can polish your work into something formidable, if and only if you have put the time into crafting your music.

Recording studio Miami: Should songs be recorded and mixed by same person?

  Should I have the album or songs recorded and mixed by the same person?   I would say probably not. You do want a fresh perspective when you get to the mixing process, a fresh set of ears providing feedback and maybe giving you ideas for production at the mixing stage. The only reason why I would go with a mixing engineer who has already been involved with project is if maybe one of the writers is a mixing engineer and wants to be the mixing engineer on the project or somebody that just has a clear vision for the project and has already planned out aspects of the recording process to be addressed in the mix and is already thinking of how they’re going to mix and that relates to how they recorded it.

Choosing a Recording Studio Miami, Fl

Miami, fl has an abundance of [intlink id=”7″ type=”page”]recording studios[/intlink]. With the Latin, EDM, and enormous hip hop market, and as a destination for national and international acts, there is no wondering why! Getting the most out of a recording studio means knowing exactly what you need, and what is available. Are you tracking vocals only? You are likely not in need of an enormous SSL mixing room that books at $1000/day or more. Are you recording a big band or group with 8 or more performing at the same time? You may need one of Miami’s larger live rooms with facilities that can accommodate. Today more than ever, major label recordings are being made, and albums are being mixed by smaller facilities that have two critical pieces working for them: incredibly well trained, vetted recording engineers, an accurate studio environment, and the might of high end analog and digital recording equipment. Aside from being a recording and mixing engineer with over a decade of Major Label recording experience, we own a retail company that sells the bleeding edge equipment that recording studios are using today. Not only are we fully informed on what the latest and greatest equipment being used, we actually own most of it. Software plugins like Waves, Universal Audio, McDSP, Sonnox can cost recording studios tens of thousands of dollars. We have all of this at our clients disposal, as authorized dealers for these brands. The same too can be said for the latest Avid HDX […]
