LOCATION RECORDING

Welcome to the heart of our recording process, where innovation meets tradition in a harmonious blend of sound!

At DIRECT SOUND RECORDS, we pride ourselves on our unique style signature, centred around the art of accurate stereo recording. Our secret weapon? AEA ribbon microphones are renowned for their rich, vintage warmth, paired seamlessly with a carefully curated selection of condenser microphones. We craft a sonic landscape that transcends the ordinary through meticulous blending, capturing every nuance with unparalleled clarity and depth. From the delicate whispers of a jazz saxophone to the thunderous roar of a classical orchestra, our microphones bring out the greatness in every performance. Experience the power of accurate stereo recording with us, where every note resonates with authenticity and brilliance.

In location recording, capturing sound in its purest form is akin to finding treasure in a sonic landscape. Accurate stereo recording in Direct Stream Digital (DSD) format is the gold standard for preserving the authenticity and depth of audio. DSD, with its high resolution and wide dynamic range, faithfully reproduces the nuances of every instrument, voice, and ambient sound, transporting listeners to the heart of the performance.
Whether it’s the delicate rustle of leaves in a forest, the resonance of a grand piano, or the subtle interplay between instruments in an orchestral setting, accurate stereo recording in DSD format ensures that every sonic detail is captured with precision and finesse. It’s not just about preserving sound; it’s about preserving moments, emotions, and the essence of the music itself. In a world where technology constantly evolves, DSD stands as a timeless testament to the artistry and science of location recording, offering an unparalleled listening experience that transcends boundaries and captivates the soul.
