Recording at Starsound Studios. What is the first step towards a great sounding record? It is an excellent initial Multi-Track Recording. The recording requires five ingredients. The first is a proper microphone placement. It makes sure there is no bleed between instruments. The second ingredient is a solid pre-amplifier selection. The right preamp can make all the difference between a good and great sound.
The third is an excellent analog to digital converter. It is a simple concept to grasp. Excellent converter equals a great sound. An average converter produces an average sound. A fourth component is an acoustically treated room. The room should be the very first place you spend your money without a doubt. Next, is a pair of great speakers. Speakers in tandem within a treated room con not be beaten. Finally, an experienced engineer gives you the final ingredient.
Starsound Studios uses high definition audio converters. It also uses pristine microphone pre-amps with an analog equalizer and compressor on every channel. Together they form a modern version of an analog console. We capture excellent sound using these digital and analog pieces of gear. Also, we have a selection of plug-ins and analog outboard gear as well.
Solo artists track their final vocals on our studio microphone. Vocalists are getting aggressive radio sound. It is due to our many vocal pre-amplifier choices. Our acoustically treated vocal booth is a vital cog in the vocal sound. A recording engineer can achieve the perfect take by addressing the listening environment. Also, the many pre-amp options help the engineer select the right vocal sound.
Our Studio Is The Best Choice
The gear we have is first class. The technical expertise is among the highest of levels. Great gear and technical knowledge are the ingredients to a fantastic recording. The ears and vision of the engineer are necessary components as well. The ability to see the song's final result is the mark of a true professional.
The engineer must be able to hear what an instrument sounds like in a room. He must then translate it to the recording medium. In other words, he must alter an instrument's sound through microphones and recording gear to a computer. This step is the most vital. The trick is to capture the source correctly. Let us show you the correct way to record your music.
At Starsound Studios we understand those complicated steps and make every effort to get a recording right. There is no such thing as fixing it in the mix. An engineer must capture the instrument sound with accuracy. The audio tracks will blend with more precision because of that precision. Our philosophy is simple yet remarkably accurate. Record correctly to mix less.
Let us show you the correct way of capturing your music. On a tight budget? We have an hourly rate for almost any budget to afford. For the amount of equipment and experience - you just can't beat our recording studio.
Added Bonus and Words of Wisdom
Starsound Studios had the Dynamount. Remember the previous statements about the proper way of recording? Get ready for this! The Dynamount lets us dial in the guitar/Bass microphones remotely. That's right. You can play in the control room with our engineers and they can remotely move the microphones on your cabinet to dial in your guitar sound perfectly. Think about it, instead of trying to mix your way to the guitar sound...how about just having it to begin with?
We take it one step further. So you have the perfect guitar sound right? Then it is the bassist's turn. They dial in the perfect sound just like you did. Now we make you play together to see if there are any frequencies fighting each other. Then, pull them out of one, down on both etc. Now you have the perfect band sound. That was the original reason you came into the studio in the first place right?
Now play the bass guitar with the kick drum. Do the same thing. See which frequencies are fighting each other and repeat the steps mentioned above. Now your band sound is complete. Think of it as a sandwich. The meat is never inside the bread. The mayonnaise is never inside the meat and so on. The same is true with instruments. Otherwise, the band would sound mushy. Ever seen a live band that sounds that way? This is why.
You can dial in a perfect guitar sound but it may not work with the other guitarist or bassist in your band. Same with the kick drum and the bassist. They should not fight for sound, but be a cohesive thump in your chest. We realize this problem and help you solve it. Remember this is not a personal attack on your sound. It is the sandwich analysis. We just try to capture the purest sound rather than trying and failing to fix it in the mix.
