We have 15 years of experience, we have worked with hundreds of musicians, we made thousands of songs, we are constantly growing, there is always more to learn, but above all, we love what we do (that's the secret).
We have a recording room specially designed for this purpose, suitable for recording all kinds of instruments and voices. Due to its acoustic conditions, it allows technicians to design the audio outlet looking for a just balance between direct sound and reverberant. We have a wide range of professional tape, dynamic and condenser microphones to ensure the fidelity of each of our recordings. Another important factor is the preamps that receive the microphone signal and transform it into a line signal, we have valve and solid-state equipment that allow us to find the sound for each instrument. In the combination of different types of microphones and preamps we can find a huge palette of sonic possibilities. Regarding monitoring, our Focal monitors provide us with great detail of the tracks and allow us to make the appropriate decisions in each case. When recording, musicians can make their own monitor mix (without modifying the overall mix) for maximum convenience.
Each song contains a message, sonorous and poetic, the mission of the mix is that these contents can be appreciated in the best possible way by the consumer. For that to happen, a fair balance between technique and art is necessary. A good mix is one that "accompanies" the artistic sense of the song, with a technical support to transmit that art to the listener.
