Precision Sound has a 400 square foot Live Room which can comfortably accommodate a 5-7 piece band or a string section of 12-15 musicians. While the space is able to accommodate larger sessions, it is also comfortable for solo artists and singers working on overdubs and production. We undertake each project with a focus on making recordings with exceptional sound quality that are consistent with the musical aesthetic of the client. Every project is unique and calls for specific tools and techniques to get the best results. To that end, we have assembled a special collection of instruments, amplifiers, microphones, and recording equipment including a state of the art 48 channel Solid State Logic Duality analog console which has superb mic preamps and the famed SSL signal processing on every channel. The backline offers a Steinway O Grand Piano dating from 1929, guitar and bass amplifiers from Fender, Vox, and Ampeg, as well as hardware synths from Moog, Dave Smith, Vermona, and Nord.
The Precision Sound Control Room is an incredible facility for Mixing that gives client projects the sonic power and speed of large format SSL Duality analog console mixing along with a modern and flexible DAW based workflow. The control room has a substantial collection of analog outboard equipment and effects which round out the console's mixing capabilities. In addition to our analog equipment we have ProTools HDX DAW software and a substantial collection of native and UAD plugins for easy session compatibility and creative sound design. We strive to bring a modern and fast workflow to mixing that takes advantage of the Automation and Total Recall capability of the SSL Duality with DAW based editing, detailed project management, and a fantastic team of highly experienced and creative engineers. We believe that mixing is a major creative opportunity for our clients and we strive to deliver impactful, emotionally moving, and dynamic mixes which stand with the best in the industry.
Mastering makes a great mix even better and a great album come together. It takes years of listening and developing an ear as an engineer in order to understand how to perform the final enhancements and finishing touches to a project. We have developed techniques and hand picked equipment that help to deliver exceptional clarity and impact in our masters. We have a very personal and client oriented approach that helps us to deliver masters that are custom tailored to the needs of each client. We stay ahead of all new trends in media distribution which allows us to adapt our services to any current downstream format whether it is CD, Mastered for iTunes, digital distribution and Internet streaming platforms, or referral to Vinyl specialists if needed.
We have Post Production expertise that covers high quality dialog and voiceover recording as well as score recording and sound mixing for Film and TV productions.

For convenience and ease of work we have a large HD video monitor in the control room for mixing to picture. We also have the ability to send HD video to the live room for ADR/Dialog dubbing, Foley recording, and live to picture conducting as needed.
