SY8 Productions offer a broad variety of services including:
Recording on location – we can come to you or provide a variety of venues to suit your needs whether you are a solo artist, a full Band, choir or an orchestra. Producing a recording of a large ensemble usually means an expensive visit to a big city recording studio.
However, SY8 Productions will come to you and record you at the venue of your choice/budget
It maybe a rehearsal room or even at a live concert. If this is the case, we will need early access to enable the setting up of microphones etc and a plan of the set up is very useful for correct mic placement. We can finely tune the placement once everyone is in situ.
To summarise, besides rock, country, folk and pop bands, we also record choirs and orchestras
Editing and Mixing – we will turn your songs/compositions or demos into professional, radio ready mixes. This can also be done via the internet.
Mastering – Master your mixes
Recording a Demo for auditions or soloists singing to backing tracks – simply supply your backing on CD/Wavefile (or we can source it for you or even create customised tracks in the studio) – and you sing to the accompaniment. The resulting recording is mixed. Job done!
Composition – We have written original music for varied applications over the years including music to accompany film, T.V. and radio plays.
We have also worked extensively with lyric writers – basically putting their lyrics to music.
We compose the music and record it as part of the service – adding if requested, a variety of instruments including guitars, drums, percussion, electric and stand up bass, keyboards, piano, strings, brass and vocals
Voice Over – Record a voice over for an advertisement, website or audio book.
