Recording can be done in our studio or we can record in your home, rehearsal space or any location that will get your best most creative performance. HEAR EXAMPLES ON OUR CLIENTS PAGE. Contact Kenny

STUDIO RECORDING

MOBILE RECORDING

Kenny can also travel to any location and bring his mobile recording rig to record you at your home, your church, a rehearsal space or a room you just like to play in. So long as it is acoustically sound and relatively free from outside noise, any space can be made into a recording space with know how – for your complete comfort and convenience. Contact Kenny

JUST MIXING

Already have tracks? Kenny is known for his killer mixes. Mixing is done in the B3P studio. You can record your band yourself if you have the means and send the files remotely to Kenny to mix. It means your band can be located anywhere in the world and be mixed by Kenny Schick.

MASTERING

Kenny also does mastering. Mastering is the final step in producing a song or album. Mastering raises the overall level/volume of songs to compete in the commercial market along side other music so it doesn’t disappear next to songs that have been mastered to current standards. Mastering addresses any overall adjustments that may be needed with EQ and compression etc. In the case of an album, mastering also makes sure the songs sound uniform in volume and tonality.

GRAPHIC DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY

Basement3Productions also provides graphic design, photography, production, website, distribution & marketing expertise to help you produce a fully complete artist’s package for your independent musical career.
