Demo Recording

By Blewy - 30 October 2006 14

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a place to go to get a decent demo recorded. Doesn’t have to be perfect, but good enough to show people our stuff.

We have been trying to contact Redsun without any luck, so if anyone can provide me with some details of other places here in Canberra, that would be great.

Thanks

What’s Your opinion?

hey blewy – alternate option is find someone who is at woden tafe in their sound engineering course and get them to record you as a project.. or just contact the tafe itself.. they may let you use it for a small fee. apparently their facilities are pretty pro.. so I assume it would be pro-tools/digi software/hardware.. good mics etc.

Yep, Infidel are the go. Talk to Duncan.

You guys are all legends. I’ll do a ring around and see what I can come up with. Cheers to all. You all get a free CD once we are done.

I can personally recommend Infidel studios. My band just recorded our album using 2 studios, Drums and Bass recorded @ 301 studios in Sydney, and overdubs at Infidel. We are really, really happy with the results..

Infidel’s contact number is: 6297 3828

ArtSound FM has studios/equipment for hire.

In addition to that, I know from personal experience that Recording Techniques students at the school of music are often in need of a subject for an assignment. Some of them even do it for free.

Hey, Im at SAE in Byron Bay. I know its a long way to travel, but I could record a demo for free in an SSL XL9000K/’Tools HD equipped studio.

Infidel has analogue gear as well as all the digital trickery, also is owned/run by a great guy called Duncan. Many artist he has recorded are heard on JJJ.

what do you call a person who hangs around musicians ?

a drummer.

No gigs mate. In the process of training a new drummer.

So far he can sit, beg, and roll over….

2XX (as far as I’m aware) haven’t had funcitoning studio facilities since they moved to Civic.

Blewy 12:08 pm 30 Oct 06

Hey Thumper and El,

Thank you for your help. I’ve heard of Infidel, i’ll give them a call. Thumper, if you could find a number for Tony that would be great.

2XX have a studio to record??? Awsome. I’ll give them a call too.

Band is doing pretty good. We actually played in the Pot Belly Battle of the Bands again under a different name “See no Evil”. We were really only going in it for a bit of fun, but end up coming second and made it through to the final on the 18th of November. It was crazy and very unexpected considering this time we didn’t bring a rent a crowd.

How’s your band crusing along Thumper? Any gigs lined up.

Thumper 12:01 pm 30 Oct 06

Also check to see if 2XX have their studio back up and running.

I recorded there back in about 97 and the quality was actually quite outstanding.

What Thumper said…

Also might be worth looking up “Infidel” studios (provided they’re still around) in Queanbeyan. I think Redsun have relocated, Gordo seems to be working out of studios in Sydney/Melbourne more and more. I can vaguely recall mention of Kimmo Vennonnen (sp?) doing some recording work, think it was for Rebel Astronauts in the hall at Gorman House…

Thumper 10:32 am 30 Oct 06

Hi Blewy,

hows the band going?

There’s a guy in Queanbeyan by the name of Tony Barrington who does analogue recordings.

And I think he’s reasonably cheap. I can find a phone number if you like.
