We help you translate your artistic vision to a recorded medium with an appropriate sonic aesthetic. No two projects are the same, so every approach is a unique response to your music.
Every great recording has started with the artist’s creative goals. Getting the right vibe is the most important thing in any recording. What music production is can range from simply guiding you through the recording process, to choosing and setting up your instruments, working on arrangements, and adding instruments.
Ultimately it’s our job to help translate your creative vision to a recording. By augmenting your tones and helping you play your best, we can capture an aesthetic sound that supports the energy and lyrical narrative of the recording. If you have any questions before or along the way, don’t hesitate to ask, and we will give you our expert advice.
Recording is the process of capturing a performance in a professionally designed acoustic space. We ensure everything sits together in a natural way before we even begin to mix.
Recording is the process of capturing your performance. In order to perform well you must be comfortable, and that’s why our recording rooms are all about vibe. Whether you choose to record live or everything separate, each can provide high quality recordings, what’s right for your project is up to you.
Through careful microphone placement, preamp saturation, and light EQ or Dynamics choices, your music will sit together in a natural way from the start. At A1 we don’t have one mic for kick drum, one preamp for guitars, or one way of doing things, because when It really comes down to it, we listen to the artist to find the right approach for your project.

Using tools such as equalizers, compression, Multiband Expansion, Limiting, Saturation, Reverb, Delay, and Modulation, we can carve out a place for each instrument and create textures.
Once you have your recorded material, it’s time to start Mixing your music. By balancing the different elements, your music can reach its full potential. Using tools such as equalizers, compression, Multiband Expansion, Limiting, Saturation, Reverb, Delay, and Modulation, we can carve out a place for each instrument and create textures; Giving it focus, space, and interest. Having good tonal balance is essential so it plays back consistently on a wide variety of listening environments.

MONTHLY JAM SESSION
We do a monthly jam session where people come in & have fun, and where all the bands meet each other on the last Friday of each month. This session provides an essential networking opportunity.
Mastering is the final stage before duplication; it will make your music clearer, more balanced, wider, and louder, in addition to conforming to technical requirements.
Mastering is the process where stereo files of the final mixes are tweaked with dynamics and equalization adjustments to finish them off and ready them for production. In our A1 studio, we carefully listen to each mix and determine the final steps to finishing your masterpiece! Mastering is an important step, and can make the difference between your songs sounding right in a playlist with other artists similar to you, and your songs sticking out as unprofessional and sounding like a demo. By adjusting the volume of each song, and making sure no songs are too loud or quiet in relation to each other, as well as tweaking the stereo width, frequency balance, and appropriate dynamic range.
With music being released primarily through digital downloads and streaming, it’s important that your masters meet a set of technical specification in order to prevent inter-sample peaks and ensure distortion is not introduced during file conversion. Your music will leave mastered for iTunes and ready for marketplaces such as Pandora, Spotify, Bandcamp, as well as mastered for vinyl or tape.
