Colt has produced, mixed, mastered, and preformed on #1 Albums on iTunes and Amazon. “Every project that I work on I want to know who influenced the band/artist, I find music that is similar to what I am working on, and I submerse myself in it to be inspired, to understand what made people like it, and to know how to place the project I’m working in the appropriate genre/sonic space (with production, mixing, and mastering), and so I can help make the band unique.” – Colt Capperrune. Every project, every song gets that same attention to detail. No presets, just personalized care from beginning to end. Don’t you think your music deserves that same attention to detail?? Yes, it does!
We believe that Hybrid Mixing (using computer based software along with high end outboard gear) is the way of the future. A huge console is cool and might sound good, but it takes far too long to recall a mix. The maintenance needed on a large format console is also expensive; recall time and maintenance creates higher rates for you, the consumer. With a hybrid setup, we take software (Pro Tools) and use some of the best quality plugins available, paired with optimal rack gear. This keeps that warm analogue sound that everyone is after, but makes jumping from song to song, or project to project, quick and easy, creating a positive working environment that is inspiring to create in. Check out pictures and gear list’s on the studio pages, as well as bio’s and audio from each of our staff members. Feel free to contact us for rates and availability, or any other questions you may have. Also don’t forget to watch our blog for tutorials and info on everything from gear and instrument repair, to mixing and mastering! From that half written song you’ve had for years, to that radio ready masterpiece, we will help you go as far as you want to take your music!
