In addition to recording in New York Studios I have also build my own recording facility. This allows me to be available on short-term notice, even if the client can’t find studio time. It also allows me to take on longer-term projects that may not be feasible in a rented studio environment.
My home studio set up, or as I learned from the techies on gearslutz, my “signal chain” is:
Neumann TLM 10
Apogee Duet 2
Please find a sample recording here.
It all starts in my foamy closet and ends up on JBL speakers (LSR 4326P) or on my AKG K 240 headphones. I have to admit that my wife hinted at the possibility that I may be a bit of a gearslut myself...
As alternatives to this setup, I can offer Presonus Studio One or Audacity for software, and for microphones either an EV PL 22, or, of course, my trusted SM 58 from singing (well, let's just call it that) in a rock band many years ago, in case you want me to yell a lot.
Please contact me for rates. I can recommend the services of several excellent translators if needed.
