Sure, you can make a "Right Now Song" with an old PC and a USB mic, and go viral. But there's still nothing like a professionally recorded song produced with quality gear and a dedicated engineer in an acoustically sound environment.
At VU Studios we strongly believe in the importance of capturing the best possible sound at source. Although modern technology can solve problems from the recording stage later, we believe there is no substitute for the use of classic microphones to capture the best performance in the correct sounding environment. The design of the studio reflects this.
We are happy to record in whatever way best suits a project. Whether that's tracking a whole band live together, working on instruments individually, or programming & editing from the ground up. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to recording and we believe the studio has been set up to excel in any genre or recording style.
Martez is a very experienced mix engineer, used to working both with projects where we have recorded everything in the studio, or with projects using files recorded elsewhere. At VU Studio, considerable time and energy has been put into creating a mixing environment where we can deliver the highest possible quality results from whatever source we are working with. We are very proud of Lead Engineer and studio where mixing takes place . We have designed it to be a very fair and unbiased listening environment.
VU Studio is an ideal choice for projects with a greater level of production input from the in-house engineers. Our background is in producing music and as such we can provide a rare level of production, songwriting, arrangement and musicianship to help fulfill a project's full potential. We also specialize in co-production projects where help is needed but there is a strong direction already existing. We're also happy just to engineer and help with the technical side if it's clear what the production aims are already.
We provide mastering for both projects recorded at VU Studios and those recorded elsewhere. Whether for subtle changes to the EQ and dynamic for that professional finish, or beefing up tracks for maximum punch and volume, our listening environment and speakers allow us to provide that final touch that's hard to achieve outside of the studio.
Commercial services are endless. We can provide the highest quality in production for Television, Film, Radio and the Web. If you are recording voice-overs for multimedia or film, we offer standard recording.
CD/DVD Duplication and Replication
When your project is complete, we offer duplication and replication services. If you already have artwork, we can provide you with the templates you need to upload your work. If you need graphic design we can provide services to complete all of your artwork.
