Always looking for the unique sound in the studio. Used this mic the other day, it's the Bob Baker "The Price is Right". game show host mic. Added to the Shure Sm57 on the snare drum, giving it a little bit of distortion and punch. Binary Recording Studio

We were given the Solid State Logic Fusion processor by a great friend of the Studio. This device adds some amazing color / tone to a 2 mix or individual stems. Looking forward to using this on some of our mixes. Binary Recording Studio

The other day I had a great singer in the studio with a very dynamic , loud vocal delivery. I tried some of my great mics but he would distort the capsule of the mic every so often. Ask him to back up on some of his parts and play the mic, no luck.
So the mic that ended up working for the session was the Shure SM7B Cardioid Dynamic. I used a tube mic pre and let him rip. The mic worked great for his style of singing. Binary Recording 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 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!

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!

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
