Gospel Oak is home to a state-of-the-art Music Recording Studio, which is based around an SSL AWS 900 +SE DELTA Recording Console, Prism Sound ADA-8XR Converters and a selection of world class outboard mics and backline. Situated in the beautiful rural setting of the Warwickshire countryside, it offers seclusion and privacy to recording artists.
Gospel Oak’s team of highly skilled, experienced and friendly sound engineers are passionate about bringing our artists vision to life. They aim to deliver a professional, expert and friendly service, whilst creating the highest quality audio tracks. We offer a number of recording services to enable this:
is the method of sound recording that allows for multiple sound sources to be recorded simultaneously and separately. Such as recording a band inc drums etc all playing together, tracking guides in advance of overdubs or a simple guitar and vocal requiring 2 or more microphones.
Double tracking is the process of doubling the same part to add thickness and/or width to a recorded vocal or instrument. Used to great effect with guitars.
Overdubbing is the process where the artist listens to an existing recorded performance and simultaneously records a new performance along with it.
The purpose of overdubbing is to replace inferior recorded section/s with better time/tuned/performed recordings or to add new parts or layers to the multitrack.
Gospel Oak has the facilities to offer location recording – high quality audio capture of a live performance or perhaps to record a musician/vocalist in a more familiar environment.
Gospel Oak have an experienced in-house producer available for projects, as well as a roster of talented and seasoned professionals that we can recommend from outside of the studio. Our production team can be on hand to assist with gathering ideas for the project, selecting songs and/or session musicians, proposing changes to the song arrangements, coaching the artist and musicians in the studio, controlling the recording sessions and supervising the entire process through audio mixing (recorded music) and, in some cases, to the audio mastering stage.
A great mix is vital to how a recording will be presented in its final form. Volume, panning, equalisation, and effects are the four basics of mixing music. Our intention at Gospel Oak is to bring an already good recording to life through the mix process and ensure it has the heart and soul to connect with the listener, and be at a commercial resolution. Our spacious and naturally lit control room is the perfect environment to relax, and create.
We are spoilt for choice at Gospel Oak with our standards and range of equipment, including Pro Tools 12.6 HD Native system, SSL AWS 900 +SE DELTA Control console, PRISM ADA8 XR AD/DA Converters, the highest quality SSL and Morbin Audio outboard dynamics, Bricasti M7 stereo/mono reverb and an almost endless supply of high end plug-ins from UAD, WAVES etc.
