RICH ANALOG SOUNDS

"I’ve always been a fan of the older, warm analog sounds and the ease and reliability of digital editing so I created a hybrid of the two! My philosophy is to record with lush, rich analog sounds through good microphones and preamps, then sum and mix all the tracks through an analog Neve preamp/SSL bus compressor path via the Roll Music Folcrom summing box."

~ Mike McKyes

 

TOP QUALITY RECORDINGS

You will have access to some of the best facilities, recording and mixing equipment available on the market today and be provided with competetive prices and the best service from the beginning of pre production to a finished, mastered recording ready for pressing! If I don't have it, we'll get it. Contact for rates.

 

FOR THE BUDGET MINDED/DEMO PROJECTS

There's no general rule for how much you can spend on a recording project, sometimes you may want a more cost effective demo to shop for investors or a CD to sell from the stage and have a certain budget in mind. No problem! We can work out something that will sound good enough to be proud of and use as a vehicle to save up for the next, bigger project! Contact for rates.
