RECORDING

Heading 1

You've got the inspiration. I've got the gear and the experience. Let's choose a space and get your music captured with great detail and emotion!

When it comes to capturing your talent, the recording process is the absolute most important. Cut no corners here. My hope is to capture the sounds with the utmost care, knowledge, and experience. If you want to make your mixing engineer happy, not to mention your fans, don't short-change yourself by just going to any random studio. Get some reference recordings and hear what they can do for you.

Many times, I offer to help find places to record, but if you have a place in mind, we can evaluate it and see if it will work. With the portable and well-built technologies we have today, great recordings can be made from even the most modest surroundings. I've made some incredible recordings in living rooms! However, in the Nashville area, there's many great rooms that you can rent, and we only need to record there. Mixing/Mastering can all be done later. That's one of the benefits of using Soundporter. You don't need to keep paying the rental rates for the post-recording work. This means we can spend a lot more time on your project at a much lower rate.

Also, keep in mind, you can split the recording duties between myself, yourself, or any other engineer. I'll work with anyone that wants to help you realize your gift! Some artists prefer to track drums with me, but track guitars, or even vocals at home, then send me the sessions later to mix and Master. No problem!
