WHY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL RECORDING ENGINEER?

High Quality
Equipment

Just like you invest in a quality instrument, an audio-video recording engineer has all of the necessary gear & skills to produce a top notch product. 

Experience unparalleled visual and audio quality, as full-frame cameras capture stunning details and dynamic range, while condenser microphones deliver rich, nuanced sound—outclassing the capabilities of smartphones and Zoom recorders for professional-grade productions. 

 This combination of advanced camera technology and professional-grade audio equipment ensures a higher level of precision and quality in both visual and auditory aspects, making them the preferred choice for professional videography and audio recording applications.

Longevity

In professional recording sessions, performers benefit from the expertise of a skilled engineer with experience facilitating hte various details of post-production editing.

 

This includes noise reduction, spot cleanup, mixing, mastering, cross-fading multiplke takes into one seamless track, and countless other enhancements.

 

The meticulous editing process ensures that the final results surpass the limitations of live performances, allowing artists to achieve a polished and higher-level recording that captivates listeners with its precision and excellence.

Stress Free

Choosing a recording engineer simplifies the audio production process by leveraging their expertise and specialized equipment.

 

With a professional at the helm, you can focus on your artistic expression while ensuring optimal sound quality, avoiding the complexities and potential pitfalls that come with DIY recording setups.

While a live performance only happens once, recordings last a lifetime... Live performances never live up to our expectations, and, unfortunately, musicians don't get "do-overs."

Recording gives you the opportunity to reach for the level that you KNOW you are capable of, without the added stress of a live audience.

BUILD A STRONG PORTFOLIO

Having a strong performance portfolio is crucial aspect of acquiring gigs, scoring interviews, winning jobs, and advancing in competitions. 

 

Before hiring ANYONE for a service, you'd like to see some of their work, right? Music is a service like any other, and, potential clients won't hire you without seeing your work first...

If your portfolio is nonexistent (or out of date), it could cost you valuable performance opportunities. 

GAIN A COMPETITIVE EDGE

In competitive situations, recordings are the very first barrier to entry. Looking to score an interview for your first university teaching gig, make it to the live round of a professional orchestra audition, or be invited to the live round of a prestigious competition?

Chances are that many (if not most) of your other competitors will have their submission recorded professionally. In the final stages of preparation, the only thing that could possibly make your submission any better is to have it captured by a professional. 

GAIN CREDIBILITY

A portfolio of professionally recorded materials demonstrates your willingness to invest in yourself, your appearance, and your future. 

It encapsulates your musicianship, diligence, professionalism, respect for your craft, and so many other qualities which employers are looking for in their applicants.

too expensive

How much did you pay your accompanist?

How many hours did you practice JUST for this one recital?

How much are you spending on your degree?

How much did you invest in your instrument?

How much will you earn when a professional recording lands you a tenure-track job?

Can you really afford to wait?

 

If a job opened up tomorrow, would you have submission materials ready to go?

I have my own recording gear

That's GREAT! Every musician should own basic recording gear!

 

 However, the gear itself does not produce great recordings - just like buying a newer, more expensive instrument won't fix issues with your playing...

Recording is just like any other skill. It takes years of practice, determination, and experience to develop the eyes & ears for what looks & sounds great.
