EverestMusic Recording Studio Concept

We're convinced that "proper" recording studio should first of all have proper ATMOSPHERE, while all the other thing s that are usually associated with this place - equipment, premises, pictures of celebrities that visited studio and other show off stuff – are of secondary importance. Studio atmosphere should dispose to creation of Art with a capital “A”, which is per se is a kind of cosmic ‘sacrament’. Recording studio should inspire, uncover and assist its visitors and should not allow any concerns and circumstances - studio rates, dull and bore sound engineer - destroy creation process. Recording studio should as well not be a gigantic black hole absorbing all your forces but on the contrary should catalyze your musical force and give it back when you stand/sit at the microphone playing an instrument or singing a vocal part, so that you could, in turn, liberate already multiplied creative impulse. This whirl of creative energy should be processed by competent and talanted sound engineer. What do you think recording studio atmosphere depends on? Staff relations? Working conditions or employment terms? Weather or office location? Neither! Recording studio atmosphere will always serve as an indicator showing what was invested in the studio! Big money invested in the studio per se does not guarantee the desired outcome. If recording studio exists only to make money, it is dead in a certain sense, and will only produce shallow though quite expensive music. Such studio will never achieve real success. But the studio, which you put your heart in and which is made with love to the business, which due to the lack of funds might have been built with your own hands and not by a bunch of hired workers according to pattern #N from catalogue of elite studios for fabulously wealthy doltseven, such studio - even if it's lacking some fancy devices - has a SOUL! Alive and ready to meet you and breathe new life in your creative work… EverestMusic is one of the recording studios that have soul. And we, as the part of it, are trying to create interesting 'high energy' product of high quality. We're open for creative cooperation and are ready to rise together with you up to the height of Everest,.. EverestMusic....up.

Our Equipment

If you've read the paragraph above, you must have realized that there's no chance that shallow expensive music will be tolerated or produced at EverestMusic recording studio. However, when it comes to equipment, we do appreciate fancy stuff, because there's strong correlation between quality of the equipment and resulting sound quality.
So we have:

  1. Electric kettle. Believe me, you'll appreciate it when you visit us. We'll be glad to offer you some tea, coffee or mere drinking water whatever you prefer…
  1. Acoustic monitors will be the first to draw your attention when you enter recording studio. Monitors are crucial for any recording studio, because they issue that very high-quality studio sound! We have two kinds of those: M-audio В-8 and Dynaudio BM5; the first ones are used for recording and mixing, the second - are good for mastering. We found this combination best in terms of price-quality correlation. This doesn't mean you should ignore any other choice offered on the market, but keep in mind that high price-quality correlation usually results in high prices for services, which, in turn, may scare away your clients.
  1. Equalizers. Most popular devices among sound engineers and sound producers. We use the following types of those:

- Pultec Pro. Good for sound processing and suits any voice regardless of speaker's sex. It's the only equalizer that spolis sound in an elegant way. All equilizers spoil sound quality, so it's better to do without them if possible…

- Cambridge EQ. This device is good for sound processing inside the mix: it's as good for vocal as for musical instruments, and can be used both for stereo and mono tracks…

- Neve 1073. Fabulously equalizes string instruments. Ensures 'brand' sounding of a great variety of guitars, as well as other instruments.

- Precision EQ. Ideal for digital mastering. Must-have for any recording studio. Very delicate and intelligent in dealing with sound. Recording studio will never be complete unless you have one.

  1. Compressors. Compressors are crucial for any recording studio. Sound compression makes loud voice and whisper both equally hearable in the record. We compress sound with

- 1176LN Classic Limiting Amplifier
- Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveling Amplifier
- Precision Buss Compressor
- Neve 33609 / 33609SE Compressor

  1. Reverberators. Very useful for design of acoustic spaces. (Our secret development made in USA by a well-known engineer, whose name as well as the name of the device we promised to leave undisclosed.)
  2. UAD Powered Plug-ins and famous Waves, work wonders with sound; this virtual equipment can easly substitute for the room full of real equipment.
  3. Microphones. We have tried all existing kinds of microphones. The following ones we consider the best:

- Beringer B1 condenser microphone - for voice-over and dubbing,
- Octava MKL-5000 valve microphone - for vocal recording:

  1. Sound board, or Mixing console.

- Nuendo 4 512 Channel

Besides, we have four different guitars, Yamaha drum set and digital piano, as well as some percussion instruments from exotic countries.

  1. Oh, and we also have a music note stand.

Together with our IT engineers we try to offer more services for the participants of musical network and keep on developing new and interesting applications. Another interesting project is Biblioteka Zvukov (eng. Sound Library) - the website, where hundreds of thousands of sounds are stored including sound effects, noises, atmospheres, and other sound related stuff. EverestMusic Recording Studio provided a variety of sounds for this project. Participants of EverestMusic social network with status equal to or above Legioner can use Biblioteka Zvukov for free.

Recording studio for beginners

If you're new to the recording studio-related stuff, then you'll find information below very useful. This information is based on our own experience and careful analysis of keywords that bring traffic to our site.

Home Recording Studio

Sooner or later a lot of musicians, DJs and other creative people decide to create their own recording studio at home. It's quite convenient and gives you a sense of freedom, because you don't have to pay someone for the time spent in studio, and you can work at almost any time of the day whenever you feel like it.
But before you start, you'll have to make a number of decisions: what kind of equipment you'll be working on in your home studio, what's the best way to soundproof your studio and how to manage your space efficiently. You'll face a lot of questions like how to extract maximum benefits from rather limited space at home, how to invest as little money as possible and at the same time obtain the equipment that would guarantee the result equal to that in professional studios. To answer all these questions you'll need experience. Without experience you'll be blindfolded and will risk to make numerous mistakes that will be reflected on your final product and for a long time will put a black spot on the reputation of your studio as an amateur organization. We can share our experience with you. We know what kind of equipment will be analogous to that in professional studio, but is more affordable. We can also help you organize proper acoustics in your premises. Not for free, but this will save you much money. How much we'll charge you will depend on the amount of work we'll end up doing and on the budget of your project. There's no such thing as typical consultation. In every single case it's individual. So if you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

Free Recording Studio

If you typed these words in a search engine, then we already know a little bit about you. You either look for a free audio editor or you're trying to find a recording studio that doesn't charge anything for its services.
In both cases the answer to this inquiry is quite simple. For the first you need to know that the best music audio editor for the moment – Cubase. It doesn't really matter whether you'll use the 4th or the 5th edition. In any case it's the most complete virtual analogue of free recording studio in your computer (to have it in your computer you'll have to find it in internet and download - free if you're lucky, or for quite a big sum of money in ordinary case). Cubase may seem rather complicated at first sight, and you can choose in favour of something like Fruity Loops; however, in several years you'll see how limited you are with Fruity Loops. So it's better to spend time studying Cubase than waste time using Fruity Loops. If you're looking for a recording studio that doesn't charge for its services, think twice, because there's always free cheese in a mousetrap or in a religious sect. Of course you can find a recording studio in a church that will record you for free but only if you sing about God, faith and on other religious topics. That's the only chance to find completely free recording studio.

Download Recording Studio

If you dream to download recording studio we'd like to remind you that recording studio is a room full of wires and audio equipment. You can't download it. Instead you might be looking for an audio editor, which is perfectly downloadable. So better refine your search.

Download Home Recording Studio For Free

How To Create Recording Studio

The answer is quite simple: with your own hands, using your head. But to be serious, you'll need experience.
There are a lot of things you'll have to know. You'll need to have read a lot, to have tried different studio equipment to find the best for yourself, to have used various audio editors and plugins, to have learned how to administrate you computer, what it means to control volume and acoustics on the whole and how to differ various frequencies, to have listened to many foreign music, and to have experimented with microphones. Besides, you should be able to hear notes and know acoustics. After you've tried, learned, experimented and got some clue, you'll have to collect some money. For professional studio the sum of investment can vary from 500  thousand roubles to several million dollars. For home studio even 50 thousand roubles can do. However, regardless of scenario, you should clearly understand what you want to get in the end. If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us, we'll help.

How To Open Recording Studio

First of all read the paragraph above. Then you'll need to find suitable premises for your studio. After that you'll have to register your own firm. But when you finish the whole job - after beaurocratic ambages are left behind, studio premises are fixed to fit your needs, staff hired, website created and advertising campaign launched - you'll understand that it's much easier to sell bricks or speculate on a stock exchange, because that will bring you real money whilst recording studio is not for making money, it's for creation…
