Mobile Recording

Phil is experienced at recording live bands and choirs. Phil would come to the venue and capture the event live. The event would then be mixed back at the studio and mastered on to CD.

Project Mixing And Mastering

Maybe you have already recorded your project, but would like a fresh pair of ears to help mix and master it for you. Phil has extensive experience in this area. He has project mixed, ordinary genres and ethnic music projects. Simply provide a DropBox link or similar or, send all of your wave files on a DVD and Phil will mix and master it for you.

Mastering

Perhaps you are happy with the over all sound on your project however, the song doesnít have that clear, punchy sound that you would like it to have or, maybe the track doesnít sound loud enough when compared to other commercial CDís. Phil can master your project and give it that extra sparkle.

Premium Service

You may want to consider using the P J Muir Productions Premium Service. Hereís how it works. You pay P J Muir Productions a set fee. For this fee, I will help you arrange your song and make up a custom made track which, could include any or, all of the following:

  • Drum programming
  • Percussion recorded
  • Bass guitar recorded
  • Acoustic guitar added
  • Classical guitar recorded
  • Electric rhythm guitar recorded
  • Electric lead guitar recorded
  • Backing vocals recorded
  • Your vocals recorded
  • The song is then mixed
  • Mastered

And finally, the song is put on to a CD.

The advantage of this approach is the fact that you arenít paying for studio time on an hourly rate and therefore, donít feel the need to keep watching the clock.

At P J Muir productions, we are acutely aware that recording can be an expensive business. Thatís why, the Premium Service, doesnít come at a premium price. Feel free to contact us for more information on the Premium Service.

Instruments On Demand

  • Drum programming
  • Percussion
  • Bass guitar
  • Acoustic guitar
  • Classical guitar
  • Electric rhythm guitar
  • Electric lead guitar
  • Backing vocals

then, we would send the wave files back to you, via the web.
