Recording

Using the digital technology operating at up to 24 bit 96kHz supported by a range of outboard equipment our aim is to record you sounding as good as possible. The main recorder uses a 24 track system but has a total of 384 tracks available and almost no limit to the number of takes that can be recorded and kept for review. Once recorded we can apply a range of effects as needed, compression, reverb, delay, modulation, chorus, mic and amp simulators and even if needed pitch correction to bring back into pitch that flat note on what otherwise would be a perfect performance. Editing down to the actual waveform is possible to remove any unwanted noise, pops, clicks, or the odd sniffle and cough. We also have a range of instruments and amplifiers for use.
