For band sessions i generally record at Unit Studios in Lansdowne, Bournemouth
This is a great space with good facilities for tracking loud drums, bass & electric guitars etc.
For solo / acoustic acts or rappers with backing tracks who don't need the facilities of a full drum room etc
i would record at my home studio space or i can come to you with my mobile recording setup.
Mixing is the process of blending all the individual tracks in a recording to create a version of the song that sounds as good as possible – the “mix”. The process can include: Balancing the levels of the tracks that have been recorded. Fine-tuning the sound of each instrument or voice using equalisation (EQ), compression &FX
Audio editing is the process of manipulating audio to alter length, speed, and volume or to create additional versions such as loops. Audio editing is almost always done using a computer and audio editing software but used to be done with analogue tape and razor blades by splicing and taping in a pre-digital world.
Correcting things like pitch & timing are now problems of the past & the results sound very natural if needed.
Mastering is the final step of audio post-production.
The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and optimize playback across
all systems & media formats. Traditionally, mastering is done using tools like
equalization, compression, limiting and stereo enhancement.
