… variably excellent

VARIABLY EXCELLENCT

 

Certain sonic decisions are best made in the analog realm, before the signal is converted to digital for further use in the DAW. This is my approach for highest possible euphony and outstanding fidelity.
But it is crucial that the equipment in use – each single device – is pro audio world-class and is arranged with care.

You get to choose from two prominently cast signal chains – with intimate timbre and their very own strengths. They will be recorded each to one track simultaneously and you will be provided with a short demo of both so that you or we can choose, which one is giving your project the „midas touch“.

… space and time

SPACE AND TIME

 

A surrounding that makes sure you find a controlled and consistent surrounding is absolutely key for the work of a professional voice talent. That is what I find in my vocal booth, a  Studiobricks OnePlus. Optimized acoustics and silence.

… digital control

DIGITAL SIGNAL

Speaking technically it is that simple: You only get the best of both worlds if you use the best of both worlds.

The RME ADI-2 Pro FS is a mastering converter and with its marketleadingly solid USB-implementation is the backbone of my studio.
As DAC and monitor controller the Grace Design M900 is a outstanding choice: It employs the same DA chip as the RME as well as the extremely clean and fine analog circuitry that Grace is famous for.

All of my recordings are captured in HiRes at 96kHz/24bit and are processed internally at 32bit (float). – These are mastering conditions and that allows recordings and productions to sound as transparent and detailled as possible. All the good stuff coming from my analog signal chain is preserved and the downsides of the digital domain are minimized.
