Recording & Mixing

Asylum Digital features an intimate live room with 3 various-sized iso booths. These great sounding rooms were purpose-built around our collection of modern & vintage gear & we feel that the layout of the studio (along with clean lines of sight) allow for plenty of flexibility, whether we are tracking a full band or a solo vocalist.
We have a sort of “hybrid” approach to recording & mixing sound at Asylum Digital. By “hybrid”, I mean that we utilize both a DAW & an awesome selection of outboard gear. This approach allows us to get the absolute best vibe & results for your project.

Clients that have started a production at home or another studio often ask – “How can I bring my project to Asylum Digital”?
The most efficient way to transfer digital files between recording platforms is via the Broadcast Wav Files (BWF) format. The BWF file format allows for an extra file extension of metadata, allowing audio processing elements to identify themselves, document their activities and permit time / session placement synchronization with other recordings. This metadata is stored as an extension chunk in an otherwise standard digital audio WAV file. BWF is now the audio format of choice between motion picture, recording studios and television production. You are welcome to bring your files to us on an external flash/hard drive (USB2 or 3 is preferrable).
Check our Mixing Services & Session Delivery Guidelines & File Consolidation Guidelines for step-by-step instructions to properly export sessions from all major DAW’s (currently including Pro Tools, FL Studio, Logic, Sonar, Reaper, Cubase/Nuendo, Garage Band & Reason).
