Capitol Studios, the iconic and state-of-the-art recording facility located in the historic Capitol Tower in Hollywood, California expands its reach with the launch of its new Online Mixing, Mastering and Vinyl-Cutting services.
“Capitol Studios has an established history of GRAMMY® Award-winning, world-class audio services,” noted Paula Salvatore, VP/Studio Manager, Capitol Studios. “Our cutting-edge facilities and unparalleled team of engineers are now made available to artists and producers all around the world with these online mixing, mastering and vinyl-cutting services. We welcome you to come experience the best of the best.”
Clients’ projects will benefit from the entirety of Capitol Studios’ world-class mixing and mastering facilities, including one-of-a-kind echo chambers. Projects are guaranteed to have a turnaround of five days or less for mastering services, and 30 business days or less for mixing services, no matter where you are in the world.
For mixing services, projects can be uploaded in WAV format to Capitol Studios’ website. Clients will be able to preview the result and request a revision, and downloads will be provided as master stems.
For mastering services, projects can also be uploaded in WAV format, and the client will select the desired mastering formats and choose an engineer from the list of five world-class mastering engineers (Ron McMaster, Robert Vosgien, Evren Göknar, Ian Sefchick and Kevin Bartley). Clients will be able to preview the result and request a revision, and the master will be provided in WAV format or vinyl pressing/CD. Additional formats can be selected as add-ons at economical price points.
Vinyl mastering is a specific craft; the characteristics of the format require special attention to decisions that preceded the cutting process, including mix, EQ, compression and timing – considerations that these engineers are well-versed in.
