My recording space includes a vocal booth that is heavily sound treated for tight and dry sounding vocals and guitars, as well as an acoustically treated live room that will be used for drums and other live takes. My live room has been professionally sound treated by the acousticians at Perfect Wave Productions and has an optimized frequency response that maintains a natural decay to bring out the best in your instrument’s overtones. With a growing collection of over 30 microphones, the opportunity to find your band’s unique sound has never been easier.  


Mastering is often overlooked, but is a critical step. Ridgetop Recording Studio has the capability to master it's own recordings as well as others using high quality mastering software. With a sound treated control room and calibrated monitors/subwoofers, the studio achieves a near-flat frequency response with minimal phase cancellation.

Mastering services include equalization optimization, dynamics processing, dithering, noise removal/cancellation, and loudness maximization.


Mixing is where the sound of a record really starts to unfold. A good mix can make or break your sound.

I mix using a multitude of professional digital and outboard analog effects to achieve the best balance of warmth and clarity. The process involves listening to the mix through a variety of different headphones and speakers to ensure that your record will sound great through any kind of audio playback system. 


Whether you want to tighten up a few musical phrases or align every pick stroke to the drums, time aligning instruments to a metronome can have a profound impact on your listeners. By using industry standard slip-edit and stretch method techniques, an off-time riff can turn into a performance of precision that will keep your listeners nodding their heads to the beat.


Pitch correction has become an undeniable standard for today’s professional recordings. Ridgetop Recording Studio uses both Melodyne and Auto-Tune software to correct vocals. Pitch-correction is used as little as possible, and only where needed. This allows the vocal mix to maintain the unique characteristics of a musician’s voice, but without the cringe from being out of tune.


I always use an active DI box in the signal chain when I track guitars and bass. This won't affect your tone, but it will allow me to simultaneously record the signal directly from your guitar in addition to the microphone(s) on your amp. If the guitar or bass tones aren't fitting well in the mix, we can take the clean signal from your guitar/bass and run it through your amplifier again. This will maintain the exact same performance that we recorded live and we can change the settings on the amp if we need to.
