Reasons why you should record at Double Rainbow Studio:

-As a recording engineer, I have done extensive first hand testing on how to get better sounds through better recording techniques. Many other studios boast about their experience and their high end gear, but their recording engineers don’t have the skill to get the most out of it. I have a strong understanding of acoustics, micing techniques, mixing tricks, what the pros are doing, etc. etc., and have put that all to use through practice in my free time, if not during an actual session.

-I’m also a musician, a multi-instrumentalist in fact. There are so many advantages to this, including better artistic communication with clients, knowing how to make the client feel comfortable and perform at their best, knowing how to make instruments sound good at the source, the ability to double as a session musician, and the ability to double as a producer.

-The main live room is extremely spacious, sounds incredible, and provides a great vibe for the musicians playing in it.

-Live in-studio recording! Most studios make you record alone in a tiny booth with headphones on, which has many disadvantages for both the client and the resulting recording. At some studios, that is the only way they can do it, due to space or equipment shortages, or simply the engineer not knowing how to make a good live recording. Not here. I have acquired enough equipment and expertise to offer both live recording, separate recording, and everything in between, without compromising quality.

-We also make videos here. I have teamed up with some fantastic videographers with high quality equipment, and the result is professional quality videos coupled with professional multitrack audio. It’s a beastly combination that most other recording studios do not offer. You can hear and see some live videos we have done at youtube.com/user/doublerainbowstudio.

-There are top quality instruments here if you want to record with a better axe than what you own, or want to include a unique sound, such as the Hammond organ, in your recording.
