There is a great responsibility to the purity of artistic intention and its high fidelity documentation at Lucy Soundlab*.
~An attention to detail is necessary for music creation in the digital age. Everything from file organization to mixing methodology, as well as editing with rhythmic precision and a musical ear, all require intense focus. Lucy Soundlab will provide that focus.
~An efficient use of time and data storage will always be a goal to strive for. Unnecessary mics on a drum kit, for example, can waste a lot of time during both the setup and mixing processes. We will get the sound right upon tracking, and we will make the sound righteous during mixing.
~Compression is an audio processing technique which controls the loudness, or dynamic range of an instrument. In modern times, often too much compression is applied in the mixing and/or mastering process, thus robbing the music of its life and full expression. Also, too much compression can have an exhaustive effect on the listener. Great care will be taken to apply the right amount of compression (and other processing) for the unique needs of each project.
*The ability to record on location allows Lucy Soundlab to be a mobile entity. Records can be made nearly anywhere! I can advise as to the best options and procedures, and how they’ll result in the sound you have envisioned.
