Studio/Remote Recording Gear

X32-RACK

When we decided to rework our studio gear, we had two objectives in mind. 1. How to bring our studio into the age of digital recording. 2. How to use this same equipment to record audio with the same quality, outside of our studio settings. After weeks of dedicated research, we chose the Midas X32 rack system. With 32 Midas-designed, fully gain-programmable mic preamps that deliver 70dbs of ultra clean gain, coupled with a 40-bit floating-point DSP that delivers virtually unlimited dynamic range with no internal overload and vanishingly low latency, the X32 Rack delivers impeccable sound quality to 40 channels, while providing 16 outputs. This allows us to become extremely creative when providing sound reinforcement for your event as well as meet the needs of today’s Artist concerning studio recording.

Combine these two units to our 4 Mackie 1300 watt Power Thump Speakers and we can deliver crystal clear sound, for any event you may have. All the band has to do is show up with their instruments, favorite mic, mic stands and ear buds, and simply plugin to our system! We use the Behringer Ultra-DI Pro DI800v2 8-channel Active Instrument Direct Box pictured below, to take any line in instrument and adjust it to produce the ultra clean signals needed for recording as well as producing Professional Audio.

For those who may not understand what all of this means, it would take pages upon pages to explain our process. For those of you who have worked with Professional Sound Engineers, right about now you should be smiling from ear to ear.

  1. During the entire process of setting up the mics, 1/4 inputs, IEMs, input levels for recording and preforming sound check levels, I never leave the stage. I do this via my iPhone or iPad that is connected to the X32 via the 5Gh router.
  2. When checking the sound levels the audience will be hearing, I will be walking the grounds/room when the sound will actually be transmitting to. Again, I will be adjusting levels using my iPhone or iPad.
  3. By having the advantage of moving from spot to spot, I can effortlessly adjust each band member to produce the finial mix to the audience, WITHOUT effecting the proper input levels needed for recording each track.
  4. I can be anywhere within a 300 foot radius of the stage and adjust anything from input levels, to IEMs and FOH speaker levels, simply by using direction from the band as well as my 45+ years of experience recording audio.

If all of this technology sounds expensive, it is! HOWEVER, our prices are extremely competitive and it is impossible to give a set price via our website just as it would be impossible for a mechanic to give you a price for fixing your car, without knowing all the details concerning your event. Please contact us today to answer any questions you may have, concerning your event or booking studio time. Thanks & God Bless. Liz & Dana.
