  • Cleveland Recording Studio: What makes Starsound Studios the Best?

    A Full Range of Services

    Starsound Studios
    is a Cleveland recording studio that provides recording, mixing and mastering - as well as graphic and web design services - all under one roof. That kind of continuity is essential.

    It takes more than creativity and musical talent to make a hit record or best-selling album. Sales, radio play, record deals, a loyal fanbase and online popularity, depend as much on how your music sounds like how good it is.

    Recording in one studio, mixing in another and mastering elsewhere isn't just tiring and expensive - it can hamper the creative process, and the quality of your recordings may suffer. Working with the same Cleveland recording studio from start to finish helps ensure that your artistic vision meets its fullest potential.

    Carefully Chosen Equipment

    Starsound Studios'
    broad range of outboard and digital gear - including the industry-standard digital audio workstation, Pro Tools - allows for maximum flexibility and the best possible sound.

    Renowned ATC monitors have the sonic clarity necessary for a perfect mix, while Avantone MixCubes provide a "real-world" reference that lets you hear how your music will sound in a typical listening setup. Each recording passes through a high-quality microphone preamp - from the highly flexible Focusrite Liquid Channel to the warm-sounding Universal Audio LA-610, or Audient's pristine Console Grade preamps - to capture every nuance of your voice or instrument.

    Accurately recording and playing back sound is one part of the equation; being able to balance and shape the elements of that music is another. An impressive collection of analog equalizers, compressors, tape emulators and audio processors make Starsound Studios one of the best-equipped Cleveland recording studios, capable of transforming a series of recordings into a polished musical product.

    Accurate Recording and Mixing Environments

    All the equipment in the world won't make a good recording if a studio's acoustics are poor. Tracking, mixing and mastering in an untreated space is a recipe for disaster. Steer clear of any recording studio whose walls are bare. Why? Higher frequencies bounce off of hard surfaces, while low frequencies can be dramatically exaggerated or underrepresented, depending on the size and shape of a room.

    In a recording setting, that can lead to an overly "live," incoherent sound. In the context of mixing, a finished track may sound awful - too much or too little bass, a harsh or dull high end, or muddy-sounding midrange - when played outside of the studio.

    Starsound Studios' generously-sized recording, mixing and mastering rooms incorporate strategically placed absorptive acoustic panels, bass traps, and diffusors, making it one of the most accurate-sounding Cleveland recording studios and a perfect environment for creating an album that will sound great no matter where it's played.
