Acoustik Musik, Ltd. prides itself on client service. Our clients have told us how important it is to communicate with us from the start of the project through to its completion. We have been in business since 1995, and have worked with major labels and artists as well as developing artists and privately funded projects. Our dedicated mastering studio and our 50+ years of professional audio experience ensure your music receives the attention and care it deserves.
I started to do audio work 38 years ago for live shows and never stopped. Althought my main job is an IT technician, I still enjoy recording, mixing and mastering music, voice over and publicity.
I built my actual little studio slowly but I'm glad to say it pays off to take your time and get better and better.
Using 16 highend preamps for a total of 22 digital inputs on a solid RME backbone, I'm pleased to be able to accomodate most projects including bands. I'm also able to offer 6 personnalised headphone mixes to help musicians feeling right at home.
I just discovered Emeli Sante. I had heard the name but her music had passed me by. On the radio I heard a track, and Shazammed it. I think it will be a great one for a friend of mine to sing - so I jumped into an arrangement of it - perhaps with the intention of doing it live in a theatre idea we have had on the simmer since pre-c***d. Did the demo - just piano. Then because I like it, added double bass and then got a bit carried away with a string quartet.
So I've seen a lot of studio spaces and researched a lot. Basically I'm remodelling an 35' x 25' unfinished room (looks like an unfinished basement but above ground) and building 3 rehearsal rooms.
We get quite a bit of work because we work across technical boundaries - We're working for a well known client next week who is putting his comedy show out on a streaming platform - so it's lights, sound (recording and PA) and video - we won't edit - just provide the services on the day of the shoot. This weekend though, it's one of our choir groups - can you do our first concert since lockdown ended - as a video and sound project. I asked when and where. All agreed and I've worked in that church before, so knowing the choir (and the awful piano/nice organ) all got agreed and times set.
3 PCM 41 units in for repairs. These are some of my favourite delays, many fond memories playing with these in feedback.
I'm mixing a guitar-based track and struggling to get the drums to sit well.. I'm very much a newcomer to this stuff so any thoughts or feedback on how I could improve things would be greatly appreciated! (Find mp3 attached).
word on the street is that my live-streaming sound is a bit thin, and could be improved.
Here's the sound,
I'm singing through a Neumann U87, the guitar is through a AKG C3000. The Neumann goes via a JoeMeek VC3. Both mics go through a Yamaha MG10 mixer, using its internal reverb (plate setting) and eq, then out via the mixers USB into OBS running on Windows 10. In OBS there's a gain boost and the internal limiter.
On the bench is a line mixer with a intermittent right side of the the 2nd output.
Interesting design inside, very late 80's...
I'm asked to film a classic vocal and piano. Just for fun, no audience. In the past I've done some bigbandrecordings but this classic thing is a bit out of my confortzone. Filmwise I'll be ok but on the audioside I'm not Shure how to set up things. It's going to be recorded in an old barn with a wooden floor. Some of my mics I can use are 1x Austrian audio OC18, 2x Neumann km184, 1x AKG C414 xls, 1x AKG C214, 4x Oktava MK012, 2x Line audio cm3, 2x Line audio Omni1, and lot of dynamic and pzm mics. I'll record in 32bit float.
Any tips for mic placing?
