Classical Music and Live Concerts
Soloist + Accompaniment - OR - Duet $200
This is the classic "AUDITION TAPE" option.
Solo instrument (usually voice) is recorded in mono, piano is recorded in stereo, and room mics are provided as well. This option allows each musician to be balanced to the other, as well as the ability to incorporate natural room resonance (in a good acoustic space, like a concert hall) or use a drier sound (in a less ideal space, like a practice room).
Bands, Large Ensembles, Orchestras, Operas $300
Up to 12 separate channels of simultaneous audio, depending on the needs of the project. Large ensembles will be recorded by section in addition to room mics.
Demos and Studio Recordings
"Quickie" Demo - $50
Multi-Tracking Projects - $250
Inexpensive ≠ Cheap
This option is for anyone interested in studio multi-tracking projects (recording instruments separately to be combined using digital editing software). A "project" would be 15 minutes or less of completed material (about 4 songs).
Vocal or Voiceover Demos in Sound-treated booth, using premium, custom-built vocal microphones and preamps with optional acting/vocal coaching.
Digital Keyboard Demo in Mono using Yahama P85 or in MIDI for emulated stereo.
Matthew's "no-skimp" approach to recording employs some of the finest equipment and technologies available, including custom microphones and preamps, built by hand, by Matthew himself, as well as quality gear from the US, UK, and Germany.
