FULL BAND TRACKING MIXING ONLINE MIXING

Crystal Clear Sound is a musicians’ studio - owned by musicians, and run by musicians, In fact, chief engineer, Kent Stump has a music degree from UNT. This means we understand the recording process from both sides of the glass. This also means, we can read and follow charts, make markers while recording so that bar numbers or verses, etc. are mapped out to expedite finding those points later for overdubs or punch ins. This greatly speeds up the session flow. And bringing a musicians ear to the engineering side puts the emphasis on the power of the music itself rather than the technical aspects. We strive to make your sessions transparent, smooth and efficient to keep you focused on the music Studio A features a vintage analog SSL 4040 E/G+ console and a large compliment of classic outboard gear including Neve, Manley, API, Universal Audio, DBX, Tube Tech and more. Check out the gear list for more details. Our primary recording medium is Pro Tools with Apogee and Antelope converters and clocking. The room is an expertly tuned space for precision listening. Our large 1500 sq. ft. tracking room, which has two iso booths, is large enough for complete, simultaneous, full band tracking while still allowing enough isolation for re-tracking and punching in. This even means we can record a full big band with complete horn section simultaneously, which is actually one of our specialties. Being musicians ourselves, we know that musicians playing together can elevate the groove and vibe significantly and we are glad to be able to offer this option - something that most smaller and home studios cannot offer. We also have a 9’ Baldwin SD10 Concert Grand Piano that was restrung and revitalized in 2018 as well as a Hammond B3 and Leslie 122. When it comes to mixing we’ve got you covered as well. Whether recorded with us or somewhere else, whether you want to be at the mix session or just send us the files to mix, we can give you a solid, punchy professional mix.

A 50% deposit for the time booked is required to confirm/reserve the session. Give us as much information as possible prior to the session regarding instrumentation, number of musicians/singers, number of songs, etc.. This will ultimately save you money because we will be prepared for your session before it starts. The session/billing begins at the scheduled start time or when we start setting levels and gettting sounds - whichever comes first. Clients/musicians may arrive up to 45 minutes prior to the scheduled start time to load in and begin setting up. This pre-session load in/set up time is free. Cancellations of scheduled sessions must be done 7 days in advance of the session or the deposit will be lost. While we do archive data, ultimately it is the client’s resonsibility to provide a hard drive to back up your session data too when a project is concluded. To schedule a session, call us at 1-214-630-2957 or email us at michael@crystalclearsound.net
