Recording, editing and mixing is a fun and creative process. At Phoenix Sound Studios your ideas will certainly come to life and sound the best they possibly can.

Recording

At Phoenix Sound Studios we aim to make sure every vocal or instrument is captured correctly by selecting the appropriate microphone, placement and preamp within a suitable acoustic space.

When recording, having just the right monitor mix is paramount. Because if you can’t hear, you can’t perform at your best. Surprisingly, adequate headphone monitoring can be often overlooked at many studios. Fortunately, at Phoenix Sound Studios, clients have complete control over their individual monitor mix throughout the recording process. This is completely independent from others that may be recording simultaneously and gives everybody what they really want – “more me!”

Large bands and small chamber orchestral groups, up to 25 musicians, can record live on up to 32 individual tracks simultaneously.

Editing and Mixing

The next step after the recording process is editing and mixing. Phoenix Sound Studios edit your material appropriately to achieve a true musical result while utilizing the very latest technologies. Whether it’s fine tuning a lyric or cleaning up a guitar track, good editing can really improve the outcome of your music. We have the tools that enable us to do whatever it takes to get your tracks sounding the best they can be.

Mixing is a process by which all recorded and edited elements of a song are balanced and blended together into one or more channels. Mixing can be very subjective and is a real art form. Phoenix Sound Studios ensure that all the effort put in at the recording stage will be represented the way you envisaged. Balancing your tracks and adding processing such as equalization, compression or reverb, if required, will enhance your tracks and bring your music to life.

A remote editing and eMixing service can also be offered at Phoenix Sound Studios. Send us your source tracks or stems and Phoenix Sound Studios will send you back a completed mix. For more information please contact us.
