The McSIMON Process

The McSIMON RECORDING STUDIO uses both analog and digital multitrack equipment for the whole process


Step 1. RECORDING
We start to record instruments with most of the famous and world reknowned microphones, such as:
Shure sm57
Sennheiser Md421
Rode NT1000
Beyerdynamic Opus99

These are fed into wonderful Api512c mic/pre-amps.


Step 2. MIXING
This is the second important step after recording. You get it by "blending" previously recorded tracks in a creative way by using different tools as equalizer, dynamic and modulation processor.

 

Step 3. MASTERING
This is the final and crucial step.  At this point we check the frequency spectrum, and dynamic range of each song.  This is done to make the mix from the previous step suitable for listening on your fan’s audio systems (Hi-Fi, car audio, ipod, laptop etc.)


McSimon Recording Studio can also
mix your track recorded from another studio and master your mix from another studio.
You can send your files using Wetransfer or Dropbox. The preferred file format is WAV 24 bit 44.1/48khz.

The studio day
Usually is not recommended overcoming ten hours,
ears and people get tired after that time.
We start working at 9.00 until 13.00 - Lunchtime - then
from 15.00 to 21.00.
We have everything ready for you; transportation from and to the airport, hotel accomodation, and meals during the day, allowing you to focus fully on the recording.  When the day is done you can head to beautiful Como just a few kilometres away from the hotel. What a perfect way to combine work and pleasure!
