We can record any size band from a small acoustic duet up to a full electric band. The mobile has a full range of top end mics and preamps and we have a set of mics for everything from a drumkit to Bagpipes!
We have a large roll out with 24 quality mic preamps leading straight to our laptop recording system and whether its a live recording or a studio style session you want we can travel out to you and get your recording. Over the years we have recorded a lot of jazz bands from small quartets up to big swing bands and last year we recorded the Eclectic Proms in Hull where local bands were backed by the Hull symphony orchestra. A big session with 24 tracks you can hear one of the tracks in the players below.
With digital recording editing is pretty straightforward and often a live recording is a good alternative to a studio album both in terms of sound and price and we often use it as a basis and overdub vocals back in the studio where we have a fantastic collection of vocal mics.
As performing jazz musicians we are always looking for ways to promote ourselves and get more work without spending a fortune. We spent a day with the John and the Reelsound mobile recording 4 tracks which just sounded better than anything we have ever produced in the studio. When we played at the Jazz Festival we asked John to produce a video of the gig for Youtube. Fantastic sound and video for a price that we couldn't believe. Thanks again..
