Services offered

At Pegasus I have the skills and the equipment to take your recording project from inception to the final, saleable product, providing professional recording, editing, mixing and mastering together with full production service if required.  I am also happy to take your own pre-recorded audio files and edit/mix them and/or master them ready for CD replication and/or iTunes placement.

Production

My years of production experience and knowledge of the industry will help you get the best overall result for all the hard work and budget you will have put into recording.  My production assistance can be as little as just helping you and your fellow musicians with best practice procedures to ensure a smooth running session, through to helping select songs and session musicians and/or backing vocalists and providing assistance with arrangements and with design of the CD packaging.

Recording/Tracking

The main tracking studio at Pegasus has live and dry areas, a separate vocal booth and can comfortably accommodate up to eight musicians to provide a relaxed working environment to create and capture your unique sounds.  A wide range of microphones, including legendry Neumann and AKG valve mics combined with linear response acoustics, offers you the perfect space to harness your gifts and record music the way it should be: with clarity, intensity and depth.

Editing

Detailed and careful editing is vital to achieving a tight and punchy end result. In preparation for the mix I work through tracks bar-by-bar, note-by-note, tightening up loose timing, replacing inaccurate or smudged musical phrases, cleaning up ragged harmony vocal entries and if necessary pitch correcting otherwise great vocal performances.  This can be a time consuming procedure but one that makes a world of difference to the overall project. If you have recorded some tracks at home or at another studio you can still bring me the separate audio files and I can edit, mix and master them for you.

Mixing

Creating a great mix is a combination of experience and smoke and mirrors! Every individual sound is reviewed, it could then be compressed, re-EQ’d or given any number of other treatments before being placed in the stereo image with the desired amount of reverb or delay or whatever …  the options are endless.  The Pegasus control room is acoustically finely tuned to ensure all sounds emanating from the choice of three monitoring systems are ‘uncoloured’ by the room acoustics. If you bring me examples of the kind of mixes that you feel suit your style or genre, I’m happy to create a mix modelled on that style.

Mastering

For your CD to sound as punchy and rich as material being played on the radio it will need to be mastered prior to replication.  I will ensure that each finished track will sound its very best, complete with any fade-in and fade-out you require. Also at this stage tracks are compiled into their correct running order, spaces in between decided upon and any track titles, ISRC codes and bar codes can be embedded into the master.  Again this is a process that benefits from my years of experience, both as an engineer and as a recording artist myself.  I’m also happy to take your mixes from any number of other sources to master into one cohesive final result.

Musicians

Day in, day out I work with highly accomplished professional musicians (or, using a local colloquialism "musos") who are happy to work as session players when required.  Whether you need a rhythm section, string ensemble, backup vocals or just an extra instrument here and there I can bring in the right person or people, all at realistic rates.
