Recording/Tracking: Whatever your music recording needs, Wire Road Studios has the appropriate solution – Studio A with its spacious live tracking room, 17-foot ceilings, large isolation booths and huge control room; Studio B with its more intimate environment and supportive vocal booth; Studio D with its large array of analog & digital synthesizers, virtual instrumentation and economical ergonomics. All the studios cross-reference each other with recording platforms and monitoring, allowing you to mix and match rooms to yield the best economy for your recording project. The facility is filled throughout with generous spaces, wonderful aesthetics and a variety of natural acoustic atmospheres, even in the hallways and ancillary rooms. To complement these acoustic environments, there’s an extensive microphone collection from AEA, AKA, Audix, Beyerdynamic, Blue, Bock, Brauner, Earthworks, Lawson, Neumann, Schoeps, sE Electronics, Sennheiser and Shure.
World-Class Mixing: With the advent of home studios and a track-wherever-you-want recording environment, it’s important to have a Mix Facility you can trust to give your project the professional sound necessary to compete in the marketplace. From an extremely fast and flexible mixing console to whatever plugin or outboard effects processing you desire, Wire Road brings you the best in mixing environments! With monitors from ATC, Equator, Focal, and DynAudio, you are assured that your mixes will cross-reference to everything from your car stereo to streaming mp3’s on the internet. Your mix requirements and budget will determine whether Studio A, Studio B or Studio D is the right mix room for you. All include quality outboard gear with extensive plug-in libraries and allow our engineers to achieve the best results for your project.
World-Class Mastering: Mastering is both science and art. The SCIENCE begins with the right equipment to allow a variety of analog & digital “chains” to be implemented to bring out the best in your final mixes. The world class gear that defines Wire Road Studios mastering services includes PMC IB2S Mid-field monitors powered by Bryston 7B SST monoblock amplifiers and Compressor/Limiter/Equalizers from Weiss, Manley, Shadow Hills, DW Fearn and iZotope with conversion systems from Crane Song. The ART requires an experienced mastering engineer to contribute a final “perspective” to your project. That contribution requires creative insight to the particular “aesthetic” the client wants to achieve, sensitivity to a full-range of musical genres and knowledge of “industry standards” for commercial music releases. James Kelley is the “artist” behind Wire Road Studios mastering work! His client list on the Staff Page is a testimony to the depth of his experience, knowledge and work.
