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 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.
What would you recommend that people look for in a recording studio? Aside from the engineer, I think, believe it or not the acoustics of the environment are perhaps more important than the actual equipment, although the equipment is important. Basically, you want to be creating in a room that is accurate, so that what you’re recording and what you hear actually translates everywhere else. You’re recording something, for example, at your homeboys’ studio and it sounds great and you throw it in the car and it’s like, it didn’t sound like this at all. There are usually reasons why the acoustics of the room can throw things off completely, where you’ll have standing waves and reflections and things that that make your mix and your recording sound good, when in fact those are phantom sort of sounds and they’re not really there. The accuracy of the room is critical. After that would be the equipment. Now more than at any other point in time you can do a lot with a couple thousand dollars worth of equipment you can great sounds. Back 10, 15 years ago there were quarter of a million dollar consoles, really super expensive digital recorders that were sometimes up to half a million dollars. Now you can get awesome conversion great pre-amps at reasonable prices. The gear is important, it certainly is, but obviously the engineer needs to know how to get the most out of the equipment. I would say really only 20, 30% […]
