Do you record only on location?
Correct! Not owning a studio costs less, so you pay less, and it's more convenient for my clients. Besides, if we can find a good acoustical venue like a church or local hall, there are sound benefits for our advantage.
Aren't studio recordings better?
Not necessarily. It just takes a little time and patience to locate a good-sounding, acoustical venue free of excessive extraneous noise. Once that is done, the musicians can connect with the space and use it to their advantage, thereby eliminating unnatural-sounding special effects.
Can you overdub or multi-track my music?
Yes, but If at all possible, I want to preserve the original musical interaction between all participants.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use a collection of more than a dozen different microphones, each one suited to a different sound. I can connect as many as 14 of them at a time for simultaneous 24-bit, 96 kHz recording through my Tascam interface, which hands the signals over to my laptop computer DAW.
Once you finish recording us, what's the next step?
I will mix tracks and e-mail/dropbox some mp-3's for your approval. Once we agree on the overall mix, I will make WAV files available which you can use any way you like, including mastering.
