I’m very much an amateur

“I’m very much an amateur, a guy with a full time job who just happens to love making music in the folk singer/songwriter vein. I bring in my fairly simple songs, mediocre guitar work and a voice that is, well, er, sometimes challenged.”

STUDIO RECORDING

We use a variety of studios to capture performances. We have studios in Nashville TN & San Jose, San Francisco, Soquel CA, which we can use for your convenience. Contact Kenny

 

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

 

CONSULTING

Getting the Best Recording – Setting up Mics etc – Helping to create a Studio Space – Protools Lessons – General Recording Advice
If you want to record yourself or create your own studio space to record, Kenny can go to your location and give you advice on how to get the best quality & performance. He can talk to you about room acoustics, help you set up the space, help you buy the right gear, help you figure out the best microphone placement, and how to achieve the best performance. 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. A mastered song is then ready for radio, video or film/tv placement.

GRAPHIC DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY

Basement3Productions also provides graphic design & photography to help you produce a fully complete artist’s package and merchandise for your independent musical career. I can also help you with your distribution, file uploading etc.
