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. 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.
