Low noise Microphone. Neumann TLM 103 Binary Recoding Studio

 We have been using this mic the Neumann TLM 103 for voice over / narration work.  This mic has also been requested by some of our big clients.

The reason is because of its low noise and flat eq.   The mic does not add any color either.

Mastering audio at Binary Recording Studio

Mastering is a high art!  It takes a special set of ears to put the final touches to a song / album / film.

Aside from the over all sound you need to be very aware of the levels.  We  do a lot of mastering for film / PBS, Discovery Channel, etc... which has very specific needs.

One of the software tools we use is Steinbergs Wavelab.  Recommended!

Analog Board Neotek, Binary Recording Studio

A lot of recording people are doing these days is done on a laptop which is an amazing time in the development of the technology we are using.  Over a short period of time we have gone from analog recording to digital. I have been in the biz long enough to see this change.   I still like using a recording console!

Piano Recording at Binary Recording Studio

 Recording piano's to represent the quality of a great piano and player is different every time.  I have seen that some studios / engineers have a one way method that they use to capture the sound.

I have found that the piano which is really a percussion instrument sounds different with every player.  It really depends on the style and how the player strikes the keys of the instrument.  One player seems to play in such a way that the sound is brighter or darker.

This require possible different mics / setup then what you may have used before.  Binary Recording Studio
