STUDIO RECORDING



In 2013, Polkasound Productions converted from a conventional recording studio to a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) based studio. In layman's terms, that means every audio service we provide at the studio, from multi-track recording and mixing to MIDI-based production, is now performed via computer software. As a musician, recording at our studio will sound and feel the same as if you were recording at any conventional studio. It's mainly when we begin editing, embellishing, and mixing your music, or when we work with MIDI, that the power and flexibility of our DAW will become apparent.

One of the key highlights of Polkasound Productions, and a core component of our DAW, is our enormous library of virtual instruments. If you're not familiar with virtual instruments, think of it as like having a MIDI sound module in a computer,
except the sounds are vastly improved and the flexibility to edit and manipulate them is highly advanced. Polkasound's library of virtual instruments collectively contains... are you ready for this?... over 33,000 sounds/patches.

One product we do not own or utilize are construction kits. A construction kit is a "band in a box" with which you can build songs from pre-recorded phrases played by an entire band. In my personal opinion, construction kits cross the line between musical performance and canned music. Even though they sound fantastic and can save a lot of time and money in the studio, they sap all the creativity out of music production.

  • DAW-Based 24-Bit Recording & Sequencing
  • Extensive Library of Virtual Instruments
  • Over Twenty-Five Years of Production and Engineering Experience
