POST PRODUCTION

Vocal Retuning

The modern commercial vocal recording will in almost all cases have received some retuning. Our classically trained engineers have the ears which will guarantee your recording receives the tuning it deserves. They tune music in pitch relative to the rest of the instrumentation and vocalists. In addition to minor pitch corrections, we can be more creative: from creating simple harmonies, to more extreme “Autotune’ style effects, resynthesis and more!

Comping/Editing/Drum Replacement

Let us take the best parts of multiple takes to create the ‘perfect take’

Knock drums and bass into line, eliminate background noise, tidy up audio projects ready for mixing.

Not happy with your drum sound? Kick sounding woolly and missing that snap? We can replace individual hits or entire drum tracks note for note
