We can complete your project through initial recording, overdubs, mixing and final mastering for you release format (CD, vinyl or digital download), with an efficient and cost-effective workflow, all in a comfortable and friendly environment.
We record into Pro Tools ‘Ultimate’ using iZ’s state-of-the-art Nyquist converters, giving the sweetest analogue-style sound combined with unrivalled convenience. The vast collection of specialist ‘plug-ins’ offers a huge diversity of additional processing and creative options.
In addition to recording, we offer specialist audio tape transfer and restoration services. We can optimally digitise most analogue reel to reel tapes, in almost all mono, stereo and multitrack formats, to industry-standard 24-bit WAV files. All our tape decks are perfectly maintained and our devotion to ‘tweaking’ adjustments to achieve the best possible sound is second to none. Tape ‘baking’ is available to cure ‘sticky tape syndrome’ – chemical decay suffered by most tapes over time, even in perfect storage conditions. Digital tape formats are data-cloned for best possible sound quality, and error-status is monitored to avoid ‘glitches’ due to contamination.
Specialist restoration, using both hardware and software, can eliminate or significantly improve many problems such as tape hiss, hum, clicks and distortion.
We also offer technical assistance with many audio-related technical issues, for example electric guitar ‘screening’, equipment repair, studio installation and custom cable assembly.
