RECORDING:
Recording is the art and process of capturing a musical performance by using spatial perspective (i.e. recording techniques) and the appropriate electronics such as microphones, equalizers and compressors.


The rate to record in my multiroom studio is $50/hour. Please contact me to book time.


"I really appreciate what you do in the studio. You have that great balance of expediting the process while still allowing the creative process to flourish. Must come from the many years you have spent recording. You keep the energy level up as well, and I'm not just talking about the coffee!"  Jeff Moorehead

I work with you to help create, capture and prepare the musical performance for the end user to enjoy.

MIXING:
Mixing is the art and process of blending the elements of the musical performance together by manipulating their volume, tone, dynamics and spatial characteristics. I feel a good mix can sharpen the emotional message of a musical piece, making it more appealing to the listener.


I use Pro Tools, a mix control surface and mix in a professionally designed control room. The ability to easily re-amp/re-record parts, sending them through pedals and outboard effects during the mixing stage is made possible by my additional recording spaces, ending up in the computer for full recallability.


My mixing rate is a flat fee of $150 for one song with a track count up to 24 tracks. This price includes 2 artist revisions. Higher track counts and editing are available as well as a multiple song discount. Please contact me for rates.


"Really happy about the mixes! You are amazing!"  Dr. John Pennington, Augusta College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota


"It was an incredible experience and the mixing job was exceptionally well done. We are very happy with the final product!"  Running Out Of Road

MASTERING:
Mastering is the art and process of comparing the sonic characteristics of the compiled musical performances to each other and to the sonic standards of the related musical genre; then using volume, tone, spatial and dynamic processing to bring the sound in line with itself as well as with the standards of its musical genre.


My mastering rate is $50 for one song. A multiple song discount is available. Please contact me for rates.


“Scooter is amazing. It sounds great, people always comment on the quality of the sound, and it sells. I can also present it to any media contact- radio, television, etc. - with confidence that it stands up to major label recordings. He made us sound great!”  Jeff Strahan
