Bands, duos and soloists
By first capturing the whole band playing live primarily to get the drums spot on, and by a process of then overdubbing each musician in turn to get the best take of their performance, we record your tracks with great feel and sonic fidelity.
If many tracks are to be recorded in just one day then we’ll aim to do less overdubbing, sticking to just re-tracking vocals and backing vocals. This will speed up the recording process and still allow us time to mix.
Audio Sorcery has the ability and professionalism for any recording scenario whether capturing twenty-one live demo tracks in a day (record set by the band “Malarki” in July 2006) or by having a full on production day with just the one track.
Singer Songwriter production
We can compose and play instruments to accompany your guitar or piano based music. We can even add or create harmonies to your singing melody if that is required.
Real instruments to compliment your track, played by the producer for your session, can include drums, piano, electric and upright bass, electric, acoustic and classical guitar. Programming electronic instruments widens the spectrum further with sounds from strings and parts thereof, to vintage synths and drum machines. We’ll discuss further at the time of your booking to get a clear indication of how you’d like your track to sound.
Various recording techniques are available to hand, so you can sing either while playing the guitar/piano, or sing after your playing has been recorded (what we call in the trade multi-tracking or over-dubbing).Studio rates
Podcasts / Audio books / Dramas
Our live rooms are the perfect environment for recording pristine, echo free vocals. What’s more we can have up to eight different microphone positions, with plenty of separation even for the most complex of editing.
Up to sixteen channels of top quality microphone signal is fed in to our broadcast quality pre-amps, where the signal is digitised and captured as standard .WAV files.
We can provide your audio files in most common formats. We can adhere to the correct content for upload to Amazon’s ACX, or for uploading to the internet for immediate download and use anywhere that you require. You may also wish to take your recordings with you on DVD, CD or memory stick, as an .MP3, .WAV or both.
Using our beautiful Neumann microphone we can record a voice-over for you. Whether it’s a pre-recorded telephone message you’re after, a radio commercial, or voice parts for a computer game release, we’ll capture every nuance in high detail. We can mix the final edit out with EQ and compression if you need that rich, full sound to cut through any music track.
We can add backing music to your edited voice-over. This can be either purchased from the many libraries found on the internet, or we can offer you a unique composition based on your requirements. We can also add sound FX where needed.
We can provide your voice-over files on CD/DVD to take away for editing and sound design elsewhere, or we can upload them directly to a file sharing site for fast downloading where it’s needed.
Studio CD mastering
The mastering process involves various techniques to bring the best out of each track. We’ll increase the perceived volume you hear, and balance the levels against one another for seamless album or EP mastering. All the tracks are then compiled on to a red book standard encoded CD, complete with track markers and pauses between tracks – and a hidden track if that takes your fancy.
Sit with our engineer as we go through each track so you can have final say on it’s sound.
Original music sources can be from .WAV files, .AIFF files or from Audio CD.
We have a large selection of popular backing tracks to choose from, and we can offer you personalised gift vouchers to give to family, friends and loved ones. See our recording experience gifts website for extensive details about the studio sessions available and online purchasing.
