SkyRoom Studio has a very accurate control room where over 100 albums have been Recorded AND Mastered, and over 400 TV Shows, Cartoon and Film Soundtracks have been recorded the past 25 years! The isolation booth can fit up to 4 adult singers, 6 to 8 children, 2 acoustic guitars/singers, but most comfortable with one. A singer/guitarist could be in the booth and another acoustic musician could be in the control room as a pianist plays the Steinway Baby grand in another room. A small drumkit could fit either in the booth or control room. Normally a producer uses the Soft Symphony in the master control room to make then"track". Then the artist lays down a reference lead vocal. Then the producer records acoustic overdubs. The artists delivers an amazing lead with the awesome vintage vacuum tube mics and preamps, and then the backup vocals. The producer mixes and then our platinum engineer/producer masters the project.
|Note: If it is a Rap session, only the Artist and a Manager are permitted. (A $4,000 Neumann Mic was stolen by a "rapper" named "Sir King/Maestro, and has unfortunatley has now caused this policy. This Mic was a 25 year old "classic" and hundreds of voices were majestically recorded with it, It has been replace with even a betrer Neumann, but this incidence has raised out fees.)|
