Recording

Choosing an audio engineer is often an overlooked part of the process. It's important to choose an engineer who can identify your sound and musical style, and accurately capture that performance in the recording. Little details like mics types, and placement during recording, can make all the difference. Diligent engineers like to experiment until the sound they are going to record is just right. This is vital when your track is ready for mixing. It saves the mix engineer from having to over process your recordings to make them work in the song.            

 

Below is a song that I helped record for a Christmas album. I also performed the mastering for the album at Custom Model Studio. Denney Fuller & His Elaborate Elves was released December 12, 2014, on Bandcamp.

Mixing

The mix of your recordings is incredibly important. No matter where you record, you can still send your recordings to Custom Model to have them mixed. This means helping your sounds find where they fit best, and at which levels they most compliment the rest of the arrangement. This is the final stage before mastering.      

Mastering

Once your song has been mixed, it is a good idea to have it mastered. Mastering helps filter out any unwanted resonant frequencies, or to help clarify certain frequencies. If you're having an album multiple songs mastered, your engineer can also make sure the songs flow from one to the next without any harsh differences or changes of intensity. Think of mastering as a subtle refinement or polish of your song. This part of the process can really make your recording shine. For larger projects that consist of a lot of tracks and different kinds of instrumentation, we will refer you to one of our preferred mastering engineers. Having never heard the recordings before, they can work their magic with a fresh perspective.
