Audio Recording -
Demos, jingles, practice tapes/CDs, vanity recording,
amateur concerts, bridal-birthday-anniversary gift recordings, etc. can be recorded on up to 16 simultaneous tracks on professional
ADAT (Digital Audio Tape) Recorders.
The recording session can be at a location provided by you the customer, or
at HSM's project studio near Baltimore.
We can accommodate small vocal or acoustic groups up to 6 performers (without
drums) in our project studio.
The event can be either a "live performance" with an audience, or a dedicated recording
High Society Music (HSM) can provide the sound system as well if it is a live performance, or we can only
perform the recording of it.
HSM will provide all recording microphones, cables, mixers, recorders, stands and tape
media. (Amps and speakers will be provided by HSM for immediate playback if requested.)
The exact sound of the
final master mix can be accomplished by HSM alone, or in conjunction with HSM and the performer, or by the performer alone,
working at HSM near Baltimore Md.
HSM will provide a master CD or Tape of the event, and can provide multiple
copies. Custom designed labels and jewel box inserts are also available.
For very simple recordings, we can also instantly
mix and record several mic and instrument inputs onto two stereo tracks directly onto a hard drive and burn up to 10 CDs right
on the spot, in your home, apartment, auditorium, etc.
