Art City Sound uses API, Focusrite and Miktek Preamps, RME and Focusrite Converters, and microphones from AKG, Audix, Audio Technica, Miktek, Shure, Royer, and many others. It employs the latest Presonus Studio One DAW software, and has Omnisphere 2, Waves Horizon, and Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate software packages.
We record anything that can make sound, but we specialize in acoustic drums. The studio kit is a DW Performance-series maple with Sabian AAX, Zildjian A Custom, and Paiste Twenty cymbals, and is treated like the belle of the ball. Always properly tuned, mic'ed up, and ready to go.
We have three tracking rooms set up to capture music. One live room, one dry room, and a dedicated vocal booth. All three are purpose-built for audio recording from the ground up.
World-class software tools, such as Presonus Studio One are used to minimize editing time, and top-of-the-line plugins, such as Waves and Native Instruments are used to get the mix sounding just right for any genre.
Art City Sound's control room is built specifically for mixing and mastering in mind, and with Presonus Studio Mastering Suite software, we will bring your mixes up to "Radio Ready" quickly and efficiently.
Snare lineup so far: Burgundy DW maple, 1971 Ludwig LM400 supraphonic, pearl piccolo, and grey Mapex birch. So far, I'd say the supraphonic is getting the most play time. Which would you choose?
More cowbell, anyone?
