Tracking / Overdubbing
GSR is set up to record full bands with as much or as little sound isolation as you desire. Our studio is filled with a vast collection of instruments, gadgets, pedals, drums, noisemakers and oddball gizmos available for recording. With detailed attention and maintenance, we keep our vintage equipment sounding great.
We are connected with a wide network of the best players in NYC. We're also happy to take on any production, arranging, programming, editing or mixing tasks needed for your project.
We recommend that you have a music producer at the helm when you’re recording who understands the direction that you’d like to take your music and how to fulfill your vision. Our versatile staff at GSR is prepared to accommodate your needs for any recording session.
Production with a hired GSR staff member includes an initial meeting to discuss direction, as well as budgeting, charts and arrangements, hiring players and our general expertise throughout the process. Alternatively, you're welcome to bring in an outside producer or self-produce and we'll be happy to assist.
Our studio includes 32 channels of discrete hand-wired analog summing via Dangerous 2-Bus, hi-resolution Lynx Aurora digital converters, a variety of rare and highly sought-after compressor/limiters and effects, within an accurate high-quality mixing environment.
We offer mixing down to an analog ½" or ¼" head stacks on our Studer A80 Mk III tape machine and have contacts with established mastering engineer to finish your project. Reels of tape can be found at www.tapes.com and a 10-song album typically runs between 3-4 reels at 30ips or 2 reels at 15ips.
We offer an in-house mastering service at a rate of $75/song, which includes one round of revisions. Along with the recorded material, we ask that you provide at least one or more reference mixes for comparison to give us a general idea of preferred dynamics & loudness as well as a sense of the sonic pallet you’re looking for.
Film & Television
GSR is set up to allow film & television composers, musicians, actors and directors to track to picture while recording the score or voiceovers. We have a large 32" hi-def monitor in the control room for composers and directors as well as a portable hi-def LCD display for musicians and voice-over talent in the live room.
We are fully-equipped to handle remote sessions and have an established national and international client base who use our services. Please contact us directly if you're interested in a remote project.
