The first step in recording is making sure that all of your gear sounds great. For guitarists not only do new strings make the world of difference but also getting a professional setup on your instrument is the best thing you can do for your recording. Intonation problems, especially when playing up the neck, can make a flawless take sound slightly out of tune with other instruments. If it isn't in the budget for a drummer to use new skins on his kit, at the very least he needs to tune his drums. There are many video tutorials online if you can't afford a professional.
When recording instruments we love the depth given by multiple microphones. We have used anywhere between 5 and 11 microphones on a drum kit, some up close for a hypersound, blended with room mics to keep the sound big and natural. We run all mic inputs into a Behringer ADA8000 preamp into Pro Tools.
Recording vocals can be one of the most challenging parts of making a CD. A great warmed up vocalist plus a comfortable atmosphere are the two ingredients of making a good song great. We have several vocal microphones including the Audio Technica 3035 and the A.R.T. M-4 Tube Mic because everyone's voice is different.
At Kerr Village Productions we can track anything from saxophone and voice-overs, to full band projects. Give us a call to book studio time and discuss your project.

Audio mixing is the process by which multiple sounds are combined into one or more channels. During this process we are able to manipulate the audio sources signal level, frequencies, dynamics, and panning, while adding effects such as reverb and delay to create space and depth.
Mastering is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from the source containing the final mix, to the source from which all copies will be produced (duplication/replication).
Mastering requires not only the tools to facilitate the process but also the technical knowledge, critical listening, and an accurate listening environment. Through corrective equalization, dynamic compression, noise reduction, we can make your individual songs sound like a CD that flows from one track to the next.
