Recording

Fandango Recording Toronto provides multi-track recording, voice-over and overdubbing. The studio can properly accommodate a set of drums, provides only high-end recording equipment, a multi-cue monitoring system with personal mixers for each musician so they can adjust how loud they sound in their headphones, and offers various instruments if needed, like piano, guitars, and synths.

Tracking & simultaneous recording

We do multi-track recording up to 24 simultaneous tracks using two tracking rooms and resolutions up to 24 bit/192KHz. We can have everybody playing together, to try to get a great performance- which is the most important thing you have to keep in mind when recording. This is a typical way of recording jazz, which is very interactive and where capturing the feel is very important.

Voice-Over and overdubbing

Recording vocal or each instrument separately is another approach; the recording will be done in stages, starting with the beds, recording only drums and bass (with all people playing together for a better performance). The groove has to be nailed properly. Once the beds are all done, the other instruments and vocals are to be recorded. This approach is often used in rock, alternative, and pop genres..

No matter what your preferred approach is, all musicians will be in separate rooms, and they will hear and see each other all the time; each musician will have a small personal mixer so he can do his own mixing in the headphones the way he feels comfortable. As many projects involve voiceovers, Fandango Recording provides an exceptional array of vocal microphones and preamps and a comfortable vocal space, with controlled acoustics.
Many folks produce the instrumental tracks themselves, and then want to record the vocals, be it hip hop, R&B, opera, or any other type of style. Fandango Recording offers a plethora of high end microphones, preamps and compressors, to accommodate every type of voice, from chains like the famous Martech MSS10 / Tube -Tech CL-1B for very dynamic voices, to the warm preamps like Focusrite Red or the Pendulum Audio (tubes) to Neve 1073, to the extremely clean Millenia or the AEA TRP ribbon mic preamp.

As far as getting the sound right, once you have your instrument set up and ready for recording, the engineer will determine the best microphone position. While there are some general rules for capturing the sound, every instrument, voice, microphone and preamp have their own characteristics and the engineer ensures he captures the sound the best possible way.

Always listen to what you have recorded; you don’t want to discover there are problems when the
mixing is done and have to come back for more recording. Not only more recording takes additional time, but the sound will also be different. It is almost impossible to match the previous setup and recording conditions. So, listen to everything at the end of the recording session. Sometimes people are tired, but this is an effort that always pays off!
