Mastering Proces

nov 2016

We spent a lot of time creating the best possible analog sound for mastering, direct tape copies and direct LP masters. We use the highest possible cables from Audioquest and some other brands, AC filtering etc. to keep the organic vibe and liveness that was taking place at the moment.

Recording Carmen Gomes Inc.

‘ Belafonte Sings The Blues ‘ 

On sunday 13 nov. we did the Live-To-2-Track analog recording at the MCO Hilversum. Carmen’s Inc. was in shape and all the people loved the performance! ‘ The sound is amazing on tape ‘  as what everybody says ! We did a lot of tuning to get it right, you’ve only got one change to record on tape! There is no way back, once you push the record button …

” Recording artists into analog tape is the way it should be recorded to get the full potential of the performed energy and dynamics “

Atzko Kohashi

‘ It’s like a mirror ‘

‘ My Piano playing sounds so real on tape ‘It’s like a mirror‘ is what she said when we record Atzko. She is all about melody , she talks music, she thinks music, she is music !

Joost Lijbaart

‘ Amazing beautiful raw dynamics ‘

Joost is one of the most versitile jazz drummers that we know, his silence way of playing percussive improvisations blends all the sounds together.These two albums that Joost performs on are mostly improvisations and turned out to be very beautiful songs, the importend part, they were fully in the moment.

Denise Jannah

‘ That’s very real ‘

Some time ago we asked Atzko Kohashi if she was interested in recording her piano playing on to analog tape, she was surprised “why not go digital” because she likes the articulation.. So I told her the in’s and out’s about recording to tape..

Sanne Rambags

‘ Never heard myself so good ‘

Sanne’s voice is so pure, so crystal clear .. you forget about everything, you get deeply touched when she sings so intensive and takes you in to a other world.

Bram Stadhouders

‘ Amazingly live ‘

Silence .. improvisations .. soundscapes .. every note counts. The Pat Metheny-like sound that Bram creates rice into a beautiful journey. If he keeps playing you will never wake up !

‘from now on I only want to be recorded on tape’
