Our Audio Recording Philosophy
Uncompromising audio quality is at the heart of what we do. Whether we are recording your recital, recording you a pre-screen audition video, shooting an industrial video, or live-streaming your event to the world, we know that you will expect from us the utmost in quality and attention to detail. You have come to us for your music to be heard – and we will deliver in spades.
The Details Matter.
When conducting an orchestra – much like recording a piece of classical music – success will be found in the care and attention to a lifetime’s worth of tiny details, rather than by painting with a few strong, broadly painted strokes. We will work tirelessly to ensure that your recording is done right and we will obsess over the finest of details – because it is our job to care about your sound just as much as you do.
A Truly Mobile Recording Studio.
Our mobile recording studio was engineered with these very details in mind. Uncompromising quality guided our approach, but our package also allows us to work in any space, no matter how large or small. With much careful consideration, we decided to build our mobile recording studio around Universal Audio’s Apollo series of audio interfaces. Not only do they offer state-of-the-art A/D conversion – their Unison Preamp Technology offers our recording engineers the ability to emulate the finest analog microphone preamps made over the last 70 years – the package is also compact enough for us to travel wherever YOU want to work.
State-of-the-Art Preamp Emulation.
Whether we feel that your signal would be best captured through the smoothness of a Universal Audio 610B, the golden-warmth and punch of the tube-driven Avalon 737, or by distilling it through the incredible clarity of the preamps of the legendary Neve 88RS console at Skywalker Sound – our Universal Audio Apollo Interfaces will allow our engineers to faithfully capture your performance in all of it’s character and glory.
We are a Source Connect Certified Studio.
Do you need to track a session, yet aren’t able to make it to a studio? Let our technicians work with you remotely. Valhalla Media is a certified Source Connect Pro studio, and we can work with you and your talent from anywhere in the world. Whether we’re tracking your session from your home booth through our own recording and editing suite, or if your engineers need to connect with us to record you from our studio booth in Chicago, Illinois – whatever your recording needs may be, we’re here to service them all throughout the COVID-19 epidemic.
The Equipment is Only The Beginning.
Sure, anyone can throw up some expensive mics, turn on an audio interface, twist a few knobs, and email you a WAV file. But at the end of the day, who do you want to trust with your art – an outfit that frantically rushes through your pieces so they can tear down and get to the next gig? Or rather, a team who will keenly listen to you, support your performance, and make sure that every detail is found and every nuance heard?
By Musicians – and For Musicians.
Our engineers know what a quality performance is, because they’ve spent their lives training in the same circles as our clients. Pair our Chicago based mobile recording studio, with both an available locker full of the world’s finest microphones from Schoeps, Neumann, Audio Technica, and AKG, and the keen ears of our recording engineers-cum-musicians, and and your recording will be in the best hands possible.
