Protools 

 

The studio is a Protools 12 studio done on a new Mac Pro tower. Protools provides any engineer the best in quick tracking and editing features.  With the onset of the digital age, music and the ability to record and edit those recordings was much easier with Protools and programs like it.

MIXERS
Berhinger X-32/Midas M32C

 

Most musicians use my new Berhinger X-32 and the Midas M32C boards to premix their instrument before coming into the Protools system. We have various outboard gear to provide a variety of effects as well as the awesome effects on the board itself.  Each musician can have their own microphone mix so that they hear what they want while recording in the performance lounge.  We can provide the musician who has  a particular sound in mind - the opportunity to accomplish that sound first! Once the track is completed, we then use the mixing function within Protools to accomplish excellence. 

MICROPHONES
Mics 

 

We use ADK and AKG microphones - along with many others. They are great and we like them! If you have a particular mic that you like to use - bring it along.  I will use whatever mic you are accustom to.   

OUTBOARD GEAR

Summer Street Productions uses Behringer Auto Com Pro XL for it compressors - The Glue (internal compressor) Virtualizer Pro, and the Kontact suite that is controlled by the Keyboard for my external effects and Piano sounds. Guitar effects are created using the 11 Rack  that interfaces with Protools. And as always, there are tons of internal plug-ins available for various requirements.

INSTRUMENTS

Instruments

 

Taylor Guitars/ Cole Clark are our preferred acoustic guitar instruments. We also play Malden Electric Guitars - Hammer - Etc... We love to play all kinds - but they must SOUND good in the Recording studio. Summer Street Productions has a complete Drum Works Acoustic drum kit that plays - and most importantly -  sounds great when recorded.  The kit is completely microphoned and ready to record. It is in the digital performance room and is wired with Click tracks and video to the Audio suite. The drummer can be talked to directly while the recording is being done. Additionally, he has the Behringer controller that is tied to his own monitor to gets the right sounds the first time - quickly. We also us a Boss DB-90 to set the tempo for the band.
