|Some sample products from our Store:
We are pleased to offer our fixed price package which is specifically designed for soloists, ensembles, orchestras, composers, agents and concert promoters who wish to have a CD/broadcast quality archive recording of a live performance for private use. Our fixed price package covers the complete recording of the performance to a digital master and the supply of up to Five
printed sets of Un-edited CDR copies to the client within 21 days.
In the case of such recordings, it is essential that permission be given by all the participants in advance of the performance. Please note that any copyright fees, royalties, permissions etc. are the sole responsibility of the client, as is obtaining of consents and the payment of fees if required.
If you wish, an edited down version of the concert can be made at a later stage. This will enable you to select up to 80 minutes of material (enough to fit on to one CDR-Compact Disc Recordable). We normally remove unwanted noise and applause where possible, but include a fading applause at the end of the disc. In order to produce copies of this version you will require an Edited Concert Production Master containing track IDs and PQ subcodes, together with our CDR Production service.
Recital Video Recordings
This service is designed to augment our concert recital-recording package and is only available separately by quotation. These video recordings are intended only as a reference of the performance.
We use a Professional Sony Digital Video Colour Camera, which is usually sited in one position to give an overall shot of the concert. The operator will take instructions from the client as to any preferential view or position, otherwise the operator will use their own artistic judgement as to the best views, which in some cases may be restricted by the live conditions and limitations of the concert hall. The camera is fed with a high quality stereo audio signal from the main recording.
The fixed price package covers the complete recording in DV/DVCAM format and the supply of a transferred Un-edited DVD-R* (120 minutes) or VHS/PAL
video cassette copy to the client within 21 days. (* DVD+R by request).
Location Recording allows the use of venues, which are known, for their acoustic properties and suitability for the music being performed. Location Recording also offers
a flexible solution for Demonstration recordings when coupled with our editing and CDR production facilities.
Purpose built recording studios with artificial reverberation, mixers and multi-miking do have their place in the recording of music but using a natural surrounding with natural reverberation and the correct placement of the microphone is the only solution to achieving a more natural overall sound
As the venue is obviously a valuable ingredient in the recording, we will be happy to advise you about the right acoustic for our particular project and will gladly demonstrate a variety of possibilities
available from our range of recordings made at different venues.
