Working With Drums

Do you know exactly what you want in a drum recording? We are here to help. Our recording studio is ideal for recording acoustic drums. Over the years we have discovered the best gear and techniques for capturing live drums in our recording studio! We have numerous channels of the revered API 3124+ preamps. These are perfect for drums. These preamps make the drums sound huge, while maintaining pristine quality and definition. API preamps are the best in the world for recording transient material like drums. We have accumulated a large number of microphones that are great for drums. These include modern condenser microphones, old vintage microphones, and even ribbon microphones for that old school sound. On request, we can also include drum triggering. “Drum triggering” is where electrical triggers are placed Recording studioon the drum skins and will activate a drum sample when the skin is hit. This is ideal for drum replacement. For example, you may want to try different components on your kit like a new snare, kick or tom after the drums have been recorded. Alternatively, we can trigger the replacement samples with our software. Programs like Drummagog and Trigger allow our recording studio engineers to integrate samples into the drum recording after the kit has been recorded. We keep loads of drums and percussion at the recording studio for our clients to use when they need it. This includes various snares, toms, kicks, cymbals, congas, bongos, shakers, tambourines, wind chimes and much, much more. You’ll need all this recorded material to be mixed .

About Our Sydney Recording Studio

The acoustics inside have been deadened and isolated from the noisy outside world. No interference can enter the recording studio Recording studiovocal booth from other sections of the recording studio, either. The absence of acoustic reflection (any kind of echo) and noise interference will ensure that the sound recorded in the booth will be Recording Studioclean, uninterrupted, and as pure as possible. This makes vocal processing and sweetening much easier. It ultimately leads to a higher-quality finished product. The vocal recording booth has other features like a built-in computer screen for remote recording (Skype etc), reading lyrics, or synching to video. Your engineer can provide you with on-screen information you need while recording in the booth. We also understand the importance of accommodating different kinds of vocals. Not everyone sounds the same! Not every final product should sound the same! For this reason we have a wide selection of different microphones for all kinds of vocal recording purposes. Some are excellent microphones for singing. remote production servicesOther microphones are the right choice for voice-over and dialogue. Some microphones work well on female vocals. Other microphones are more suited to male vocals. It is the job of our expert recording studio engineers to make the right choice in pairing up a microphone with the your voice. Every step in the recording studio process is critical in attaining that world class million dollar vocal. Does your project require the recording of a real drum kit?

Analogue Outboard Equipment

Need that expensive analogue sound on your recordings? Pop us an email. There is no question that analogue outboard equipment makes a big difference to the sound of Recording studiomusic made in the studio. “Outboard” refers to an audio unit that is separate from the recording system. These processors are standalone units. The audio signal passed through these processors is an electric signal. The electrical components inside these analogue devices gives character to the recordings. Just like our microphones, our analogue outboard equipment can be modern or vintage. Both types have a different impact on the audio that is being processed through them. In our Sydney recording studio, we have compressors like the warm vintage-sounding LA2A, and we also have modern compressors like the Empirical Labs EL8-X Distressor. Often when we are mixing music in the studio we have the option of processing the signal inside the computer (“in-the-box”), or running the signal out of the computer and into one (or many) of these analogue outboard audio processing units. The processed result is then recorded back into the computer. Both options (hardware vs software) have different pros and cons. Often mixes will have a combination of both operations. The best of both worlds are combined to give the best possible mix. At Crash Symphony, we strive for the best and this has brought most of the world’s house hold name in music to rank us as their preferred recording studios Sydney has ever produced.
