Studio Engineering

included in the studio price
Making sure the recording of audio parts are as good as they can be, it’s important that things are recorded correctly.
Studio engineering skills are crucial in blending sounds that need to work together on the same track. When comparing studios and rates, it's not about the cost per hour, it's about what can be done in an hour! And with our decades of engineering experience we will save you all the cost and pain of using inexperienced engineers. 

And naturally we have the best tools for the job. That means a professional array of top quality microphones including condensers, valve and tube and ribbon mics, each of which will be chosen to match the characteristics of particular audio applications.

Signal processing is employed at the recording stage too, so that the fundamental sounds that exist in the track are properly optimised. 

Noise Gates, Compression, Expansion, EQ and of course recording at the correct levels are all crucial.

Save Time

If you have written a song and need musicians to create and play parts for the song this can be very time consuming and expensive , even if you have your own band.

Save Money

We can work with a basic demo of your idea and develop it along the lines of your own preferences, influences and references to music you like which you think might fit with your song.

Save Worry

We create custom backing tracks from a wide pallet of live and sampled instruments, sound designed to suit a range of styles. If the budget allows we can also employ our roster of top class session musicians to add to your tracks.
You can take our recording as separate stems into the studio where you live and add your own parts there and mix to your own taste too if you want. Or if you live locally to our studio you could book into Offbeat to add your parts.
