What are the differences between location recording and studio recording?
Location recording is a great option if you want to capture a unique atmosphere of an event. It allows registering all the emotions resulting from the contact between the artists and the audience as well as the unique room acoustics. Location recording is often used in the case of big music groups such as choirs or orchestras, when organizing a studio recording can be a logistic or financial issue. This type of recording is also used if, for various reasons, an instrument cannot be delivered to the studio (eg. organs, a piano).
In what format do you provide material recorded on location?
If we handle the recording only, a customer receives the registered material in the form of WAV files copied onto a hard disc provided by the customer (one hour of 24-track material recorded in the most popular 24bit/44,1kHz format uses up approximately 22GB). Additionally, we include an HTML file with a complete recording description. It is possible to collect the recorded material right after the concert.
What is mastering?
Mastering is performed to make the loudness and sound of an album more coherent as well as to provide the final touch that will ensure that your music sounds good when played on a variety of equipment, such as a home stereo, mp3 player, radio, TV, car stereo or a laptop. A master disc used for duplication is also prepared during the mastering process.
