From classical

     to chamber jazz.

Recording:

Sound recording and reproduction is much more than just documenting sound waves. It involves finding the plot, story and life of the music and managing, for example, the tones, ambience, sense of space and mutual balances between the orchestra and the soloists. A skilled audio engineer sets up the right number of high-quality microphones in the right place. Not only pushing his own views, he also appreciates the artists' opinion about the sound.

Mixing:

Editing is followed by mixing when all the tracks are set to correct volume levels and combined either into stereo or multichannel. In mixing, each track can be individually reverbed, compressed, equalised, panned, amplified or faded. Currently Pro Audile's equipment manages 64 recordable tracks simultaneously.

Editing:

One recording session produces approximately 6-12 hours of material, measured in stereo, of which the suitable and best takes are then collected. This requires a high-performance tool: an editing workstation that can handle up to 100 GB of sound material without any difficulty. In order to make editing fluent and swift and the clips inaudible and smooth, the workstation needs to be of extremely high quality.

Novelties and landmarks

Recordings normally apply 8-30 channels, depending on the music and the size of the ensemble. It is important, however, to remember that not the mixing but the recording of the sound is the crucial phase. If the basics of sound recording are not in order, the outcome cannot be salvaged by mixing.

Mixing creates the sound and dynamics

Editing combines the best bits into music

Fast and skilled editing saves money for the customer. In addition to adding and removing audio clips, editing can, for example, modify the pitch and other qualities of the sound.

Mastering:

Mastering completes the record for production. The musical pieces are sequenced in the right order and their gapping is built to suit, either from the acoustics or silence. The volume levels between the pieces are adjusted and possible minor adjustments to the tone, compression and reverb can also be made.

Mastering completes the sound and makes the rendering

Finally the pieces are named, coded and labelled. After the customer has listened to the final product and given his or her approval, the disc is ready to be sent to production.

Concert venue sound reinforcement:

Reinforcing the sound of acoustic instruments is nothing like reinforcing a rock band. It requires understanding of the music, high-quality microphones, a hum-free audio chain and high-performance loudspeakers.  This will give a superior result so that the instrument sounds as it should, only amplified and free from distortion, colouration and hum.
